If you are not familiar with our company you should know the whole reason for our inspired existence is to support adopting from dog rescues and shelters.  In saying that we also love fun fashion.  So, how to make a simple t-shirt a fashion statement?  That’s easy…just add some glitz and glam to it!  T-shirt type apparel has been around forever.  It’s the easiest thing to put on when you are in a rush or just want to lounge.  This is why we decided to create a logo and put it on casual apparel.  Everyone wears casual shirts and what better way to bring awareness to adopting rescue and shelter dogs than by wearing it!  No more big boxy plain white t-shirts!  Thank goodness!  Now t-shirts have become a statement in themselves.  Brands like Nike, Ralph Lauren, Tommy Hilfigure and the list goes on and on have t-shirt apparel .  A lot of the big designers want to cater to the general public and make very casual type fashion clothing.   Modern day t-shirts are embellished with glitter, rhinestones and just about anything you want to show off that’s an important part of your world.  And there are so many ways you can dress them up or just wear them with a pair of your favorite jeans and boots.  How do you dress up your favorite dolman style t-shirt, fitted t-shirt  or crop shirt?  We call it the “casual glam” look.  In our case it would be a “Spoiled and Fabulous” shirt :) and I would just tie a sequence scarf or any scarf with a sparkle on the bottom of the shirt around my hip.  Or, put on a faux leather vest over your shirt…leather vests make every outfit look cool and glam!  Or pair it with color jeans.  How about a t-shirt dress?  Just put a fitted belt around your waist or you can do a loose belt for a more casual look.  You can boho chic the t-shirt outfit by pairing it with a long maxi skirt and a floppy hat.  How about your pint size fashionista?  You can’t just send her in a t-shirt and jeans to school.  If she is anything like her Mommy, she has to accessorize!  Pair a jean mini skirt and leggings with that t-shirt.  How about a tutu, leggings and cute high top sneakers with the t-shirt?  That’s my favorite look.  As a manner of fact, I still wear that look! Well, maybe not the tutu but the jean mini skirt with leggings.  When you pair a casual type shirt with some accessories…now you have a statement outfit.  Use scarfs, boots, belts, hats etc.  The shirt and jeans look is your own fashion statement by adding your style to it.  When I wear my Puppy Luv Glam shirt people are always saying your shirt is so adorable and it looks so cute with that belt and boots!  Or if I wore it with a scarf tied around my hip.  If I wear the “Spoiled and Fabulous” t-shirt dress as a bathing suit cover up people are always asking me where did I get that cute cover up?  Check out the images on this blog post and get some ideas of your own!  So think outside the big boxy t-shirt and make your own fashion statement!

Are you dog breed specific?

I do understand that many people are Daschound lovers, Boxer lovers or Yorkshire Terrier lovers etc. because you get attached to that specific personality and look of the breed.  Pretty much every breed has their own fan base.  Yes, even I have a favorite pure breed, the Labrador Retriever.  It’s like having a 100 pound 2 yr old child with floppy years.  If you have one you know exactly what I am talking about!  And, yes he was purchased from a breeder.  He was a surprise present from my hubby when we first met.  An eight week old yellow lab puppy with a big red bow around his neck at my doorstep.  It was love at first sight.  But, being a rescuer this was against all of my principals.  Although at that moment I was just head over heels in love with this little fur ball and being mad at my husband didn’t cross my mind.  Once the excitement wore off I contacted the breeder and talked to him extensively about his breeding process.  I realized his love for labs was genuine and it wasn’t just a business.  So, there are responsible dog breeders who are truly dog lovers.

So, let’s talk about backyard breeders.  Backyard breeders are in it for the money only and don’t care about the dog’s welfare.  There is no love for the animal and it’s just about the dollar signs.  It’s basically an ignorant person who thinks they can make a quick buck.  They will breed incestuously which causes a lot of behavior issues with the pup.  Forget about giving the new born pup shots, proper care or sufficient nurturing.  Because “Mama dog” is already on to having the next litter. It is beyond sick in my world.  Don’t even get me started on puppy mills!  But, the problem is the back yard breeders and puppy mills won’t stop because there are plenty of customers willing to pay a cheaper price to get that special breed.  Remember buying a living thing isn’t like going to Wal-mart and getting the lowest price for the product.   We definitely need laws and legislation for breeders.  As of today there is absolutely nothing concrete.  Breeders will never go away.  Because there will always be a need for them because of demand.  What I am trying to get across are two things.  If you want a specific breed than do your homework on the pet shop or the breeder.  Ask questions and go to the facility to see how they treat their animals.  Don’t just buy a puppy on the internet and have them flown to your city.  It happens all the time!  If you go to the breeder’s place and you get a sick feeling about the conditions than contact the ASPCA or the local authorities.  You will be able to tell if this person is a “backyard” breeder.  The second thing I am trying to get across is if you have a dog than chances are you don’t mind getting a second dog.  Trust me it’s a lot easier than having a second kid! :)

Do your part and adopt a rescue as your second pooch.  If you are adamant about adopting another one of the same breed than there are plenty of breed specific rescues.  You can do a search on the internet and find them.  2.7 million cats and dogs get euthanized every year in the US because there aren’t enough homes.  Let’s put those backyard breeders out of business!!  All of the images you see of dogs in this blog post are from people who got a pure bread and also adopted a shelter dog.  So in saying that, dogs are like potato chips….you can’t just have one!  Adopt a rescue too!
