The Dog House Opens!

Today was the grand opening of The Dog House, the cooperative of dog-related business here in Lawrence, KS. It was pretty good day, and I sold a few of the MANY collars I sewed in preparation for the opening! I also got some custom orders that I will need to work on. We're hoping word of mouth will help spread the word about this endeavor, and I can hopefully make up what I have put into getting this started. Here's a picture of my setup in the Dog House.

The Winners!!

For the past 4 years, my husband Chris and I have participated in the Mutt n Strut, an annual fundraising walk that raises money for the Lawrence Humane Society. Although none of our dogs are from the LHS, I think it is a wonderful facility and they have been great to work with when transferring Italian Greyhounds into our rescue. They always have fun contests at the Mutt n Strut, one of which is a costume contest and this year we won for the third time! It all started with a clearance witch hat from a pet store that planted the idea of a Wizard of Oz theme in my head. Here is what happened when I got my creative juices flowing! Molly is Dorothy, Mari is the Wicked Witch, and Daisy is Glinda the good witch. :)
