Thanks for the memories

Friday, January 14th, 2011 | Blog

January 14 is National Dress Up Your Pet Day. Diamond has a distinctive black and white coat, described as tuxedo, so she really doesn’t need to dress up, she is always in style.

One thing that Diamond does wear well is accessories, as in bling. With a name like Diamond how could she not look great with an extra bit of sparkle and shine?

After we adopted her, one of the first stops we made was a pet boutique where they had fabulous collars, including a black leather one embellished with rhinestone dog bones.

When she outgrew it, I wanted to hold on to the precious memories of her first few months with us, so I removed the pendant from the collar, added some additional ones, and gave it to a jewelry designer who created a necklace that I adore.

Yes, it is very bling and a bit over-the-top, and it is absolutely perfect. It is my instant touchstone for reliving Diamond’s puppyhood. Check out how well she wears it in today’s photo.

You can repurpose things like collars as well as leashes. I have a great belt made from an early leash. A shoe repair shop helped me create it and it looks great with jeans, in black of course!

"Thank goodness I get to wear baubles instead of those bandanas that say "Does this make my butt look fat". I'm all class, and a bit of sass."
