Saturday was a gorgeous day, and we spent most of it shopping. We were looking for some big dog couture – doggie vests to be exact. The Boys are dining out next month for a magazine article and I thought matching vests would be pawfect!
Strolling down King Street we popped our head in Woof Gang Bakery…
Besides Doodle*licious treats and more, they have a retail section with the cutest apparel I’ve ever seen. But as Jaxson conferred with his friend, there’s limited big dog couture to pawchase…
Why is that? It’s the same on the internet . Not much to choose from, especially for male dogs.
BIG MALE DOGS WANT FASHION TOO –
I rarely dress the Boys in clothing.
Sure, there’s the occasional neck/bowtie for formal affairs…
And Jaxson has been known to model a hat or two in exchange for some string cheese…
But they’re Doodle Dad’s hats, and they don’t stay on long…
I’d love a cool apple jack cap for Jaxson, but one made for a big headed dog #hescertainlygotone
Most of the dog clothes I come across are frilly, lacy, pastel colored material with bows and rhinestones. If I do find something “neutral” colored the X-Large is still too snug. It’s as if it was meant for a full figured small dog!
FURRY, FIERCE AND FABULOUS –
Meet Jasmine a Gorgeous Goldendoodle who looks to be about Jaxson’s size…
Jasmine (sitting with her pet parent Lenny and “Pet Fashionista” Roberto Negrin) is wearing a cupcake dress…
And it fits!!!
KING OF DOGGIE COUTURE –
That’s the name given to Roberto Negrin –
He ambushes everyday dogs and creates runway-ready fashions inspired by their unique adoption stories. BRAVO
Neither Harley nor Jaxson were adopted but wouldn’t it be #toocoolfordoodleschool if he felt so inclined to “whip up” a couple of Doodle vests!
I KNOW WHAT YOU’RE THINKING –
Why can’t she just make a doggie vest?
Trust me, my sewing skills gene is so bad and SO strong it transferred to my daughter and neither one of us can sew on a button 🙁
My lack-of talent is similar to Denise Huxtables from The Cosby Show. In the first season – Denise tried to re-create a Gordon Gartrelle designer shirt for her brother Theo.
The episode was called “Huxtable Hotness”…
That photo just about sums up my sewing machine talent.
Guess I’m gonna have to send Mr. Negrin an email, begging like Harley and see if he’s interested in “helping a sister out!”
But because that sounds like a super Doodle long shot – does anyone out there know where I can find nice apparel for a 70 lb Goldendoodle with a dinner date coming up soon?
