I'm a repeat customer, and for good reason! This is the nicest and most well-made dog costume, and my dogs look so cute in them. Thank you!

About

Love affair with animals and fashion

I was raised in a creative family. We were always doing some type of Arts and Crafts. All my life have had pets; I couldn't imagine my life with out one.

December 2003 I rescued a Chihuahua, Tama. He let me dress him. I started making him clothes, friends and family wanted my designs.

My most popular and original design is My Mini Bone Toy. The Original Mini Bone Toy was designed for small dog breeds and most puppies. My poor Tama had a hard time picking up the toy bones you find at pet stores, so I decided to make him one that would be more his size.

From there I opened my first online store in 2004 on eBay, every year I expanded my business. My second store opened was on Etsy. Over the years I participated in and supported adoption events.
