Our Scary Fashion Show this last Friday was so fabulous…the dog costumes were all so fierce! We had so much fun thanks to everyone’s wonderful costumes that brought us great laughs. We can’t wait till next year’s Howl-O-Ween Party!
FunnyFur.com’s first annual Howl-O-Ween Paw-ty was a huge success. We had a fabulous time hanging out with everydoggy and their pet parents. The dog halloween costumes were all a riot and fashion force. Special thanks to the Houston SPCA for coming out and educating our party goers. Big thanks to our volunteers/contributors Brigitte Burke, Sandra (DixieDogDesign.com), Good Dog Grooming, Katie with the HSPCA, Debbie Manning, and Emporio Brazilian Cafe.
Pet Fashion Week in New York was absolutely fabulous! I got to see lots of new, fashion-forward doggy designs and other goodies for the urban dogs. Sorry for the poor video clip…it was dark and this is as good as it got with my Coolpix. Stay tune for the product updates!
Here is a snippet from the Pet Fashion Show. The dogs and their models all looked fabulous!
We had a blast at the Reliant Dog Show here in Houston. There were a lot of dogs and their humans but we would love to see more small dogs do agility. It’s just amazing what these dogs can do. Thanks to everydoggy for visiting our booth and coming by our Houston dog boutique after the show. For those of you wanting to visit us, please go to www.FunnyFur.com and get our location address under Contact Us.
