Who buys clothes for dogs? Dog clothing? Dog necklaces? Is this a profitable business? Are there enough dogs and owners to see that their dog is priceless and worth every penny?  

Clothing for dogs is a thriving business.  I thought I heard it all but there are even businesses that are eco friendly manufacturers. I found one who recycles, thinks green, and makes their own natural organic clothing.  The pet business is a billion dollar industry. There is no shortage of dog lovers who continue to pamper their dogs including dog friendly hotels and spas.

Does one size fit all?

When you look for dog clothes, there are many kinds: small, big, tiny, cheap and more. Doesn't it look like there is a size for all dogs?

Cute Bailey, Elvie's dog

A thank you to my friend Elvie who even has a special section of a closet or perhaps now closets for her pampered cute dog.  Look at her angel Bailey.

Is this is a show off dog or what?Today, dogs and other animals are becoming children to some families.  The pet industry is booming because people care so much about their pet that they are willing to spend sometimes  more money on their pets than themselves.  Perhaps the dog is filling a void to having children around? 

Fashionable, trendy dog clothing

In Canada, is the Eco-Pup Dog Clothing store.  They ship worldwide and include in their business accessories.  Natural, organic materials are what they use in making their products.   High quality and fashion are a must.  Even recycling is included in their ever day lifestyle.   Their clothing is designed with ease in dressing or undressing your dog.  The great life has gone to some pampered dogs.  Eco designs their clothing with seasons in mind.   The founder is also health oriented like myself.  Dog lovers can strike up a fast conversation anywhere and anytime.  If you are a one, is this right? We sometimes act as if we are best friends after  ten words.  Funny isn't it? Most of us “what we do for ourselves we do for our dogs.”  Would I love to meet the founder?  Yes, I believe we would "suddenly" turn into friends.  I wonder if she eats edible weeds like I do?  Should I ask her here or wait till we meet in person?

My dog's designer clothing and dog necklace

I never owned a fancy cute poodle type of dog.  My dog came closest to wearing dog infant cotton socks when she was on drugs for her Lupus.  What a horrible memory that was.  I said yes to her progressive biopsy or maybe scared into the decision so it was a nightmare the itch she never had to the one she lived with uncontrollably for months. From the first time she took drugs she developed an out of control itch.  We took her in cotton infant socks.  We altered her drug dosage.  Nothing helped the itch, so we constantly had to change her socks and massage her paws with natural oils and creams.  We are into herbal natural dog remedies.  A few months later she lost most of her furry hair and looked like a greyhound. What a nightmare to see and for her miserable life.  I'm glad she's a LUPUS survivor and recovered.

 


  "My" pearl necklace on Molly

Can you imagine living with a dog for 9 years and suddenly it looks like a new dog has just arrived in your home? Not only did her gorgeous looks change but also her personality.  As I reflect here I am glad I write this as a “bad” memory that I can leave behind seeing she is totally healed without this non fashionable clothing line I put on her.  It was winter here in Colorado and to keep her “new” skinny image and body protected from the weather we had her in cotton tee shirts.  She was smelling terrible as her skin from the drugs was emitting a powerful, toxic odor.  I was constantly doing “dog laundry.”

What I believe about a dog

“He is your friend, your partner, your defender, your dog. You are his life, his love, his leader. He will be yours, faithful and true, to the last beat of his heart.”  Unknown

Would love your comments below.  Please share us with your friends and family.  We love raving fans!

Carol Giambri is a back-to-basics person, author, leader, and holistically oriented. Adopting dogs for over 40 years she has found each to be precious and never returned one. Carol is a health nut and converted her husband and dog to eat this way. She chooses to be positive and upbeat refusing to accept the words “impossible" or "can't.” Her dog’s Lupus recovery is a great example of not quitting even when she got gloom reports from three vet clinics.  As a result of her life experiences she is passionate about eating healthy, hunting for edible weeds, and teaching others to live a life fulfilled with dogs, eating well, and encouraging others who need an uplift through her voice. She leads a healthy eating group in her local community for years and called upon when health speakers travel to her area to promote them. Her programs and writings show people how living a simple healthy lifestyle with a dog is fun, easy and delicious without using chemicals. If you think this lifestyle is just about dogs living healthier she says it's also for people whether a dog owner or not.  Carol's vegan days began when her husband had a seizure over 35 years ago, believed he would be healed and was in six weeks. Are you ready for Carol to encourage you and your dog along your journey?

Thanks Carol for sharing your story about your beloved dog…Elvie’s dog looks cute in that picture! :) You have a great mission showing people how they could transform their lives by adopting a dog!

Carol Rosenberg Giambri April 10, 2011 at 8:19 pm

Thanks Solvita for your comment. I want people to realize how similar dogs and people can be, but not wanting dog owners to be abusive as the dog is so helpful in this situation.

Elvie Look April 10, 2011 at 9:44 pm

Love your article, now I need to get Bailey a pearl necklace! She has a diamond collar…. Great post and most of all your models were gorgeous. Love them and we can’t love them enough!

Carol Rosenberg Giambri April 10, 2011 at 9:52 pm

Elvie, Thanks for your funny comment. Don’t tell anyone but I shared my fake pearl necklace with Molly (only for enough time to snap away). She has to be a “pearly” girl because so far she has not gotten as close to seeing on her body a diamond or on her mom’s one to share. Will she ever get a diamond? Men who love her should know “diamonds are a ‘girl’s’ best friend.” So why doesn’t she have one yet at almost 12? Loved your sharing. Our dogs rock! Don’t they?

Carol, what a dog-lover you are! I have never been so much into dogs to be honest…it’s great to read about it and get informed that’s for sure!

Olga, Thanks for your comment. I am having fun writing about my precious dog. Her cousin is Elvie’s dog and Elvie doesn’t know we adopted Bailey either. I want to expand into healthy eating for owners too as I have a health ministry and love eating from the garden, fresh, organic. My dog eats meat too, but my choice as if she was in the wild, I don’t think she would run after vegetables. In our backyard she chases rabbits but thankfully doesn’t get any to leave here.

I would never have thought about putting jewelry on a dog, but it is so cute! Informative article on what people will do for their pets in dressing them up. This is all very foreign to me… but great information.

Carol Rosenberg Giambri April 11, 2011 at 12:27 am

Rose, Sort of foreign to me what people will do for their dogs and spend. I do not do that in the area of clothing but in holistic care. I don’t have a cute type of dog like Elvie! I borrowed her doggy and adopted her and her dog too! Thanks for your comments.

Amity Hook-Sopko April 11, 2011 at 1:15 am

What a fun idea, and I love the photos! Your “baby” is precious as ever, Carol.

Carol Rosenberg Giambri April 11, 2011 at 1:18 am

Thanks Amity. With kids grown, grandkids not really around here the dog is great company. All have bee fabulous in over 40 years! I always get the best adopted ones, but really all that adopt get their best. It’s the “bad” owners that create bad dogs. There is always hope with love to make a dog’s life richer! I appreciate your comment.

Carol -

I had animals and dogs when I was growing up. I never went as far are dressing them up. Today, however, I have friends that have closets of clothes for their puppies! Thanks for sharing!

Be Well.
Paul.

Paul, Thanks for your comments. Amazing how people will pamper their dogs.

Denny Hagel April 11, 2011 at 12:18 pm

Oh my yes…we are so into dressing our dachshunds BUT have a hard time fitting their long bodies!

Carol Rosenberg Giambri April 11, 2011 at 1:43 pm

Denny, those dogs are so cute. I have a pic. will send ya that I did for one…think same kind…send me private w/email address as will be attachment…

Susan McKenzie April 11, 2011 at 7:26 pm

Carol, you’re absolutely right about our dog-loving culture! I believe it’s because so many of us have been hurt by people, rejected and misunderstood… and dogs are the opposite! Our canine friends love unconditionally and they show us a better way to live.

I don’t pamper our border collie… oh, I’m sorry… that is not true. When Matty retired from rounding up cows there was an instant void in her life. No more sunrise calls to duty… yet it was so ingrained in her nature to work hard, to please, to run all day long and make animals obey her. So I bought her two pet rats and a rat condo with 4 levels! I can barely believe I did this, but you know, it’s the best thing I could have ever done for Matty. It’s been a few months now since the rats arrived and she treats them just as seriously as her cows… keeping guard and watching them diligently all day long. She now loves the house better than her yard, because she just has to have “pets” to take care of.

My son takes her to a local dog park for exercise and she gets to have fun with all the other dogs, running, leaping, and bounding… chasing balls! But as soon as she’s back home, she’s right in front of her rat cage…

It’s no wonder dogs are a multi-billion dollar industry! They are saving lives just by letting us know how loved we are, no matter what we do or say!

Carol Rosenberg Giambri April 11, 2011 at 11:17 pm

Susan, What beautiful comments. Thanks. Dogs don’t keep suppressed anger around, don’t lash out you when they have this bubble read to burst, love you for who you are, don’t scream at you, judge you, they just are servants of LOVE! Some humans can learn from dogs. I just pray for them to not be abused–not deserved ever–no excuses welcome to me.

How funny about Matty being the keeper of the rats. Nice your son can pitch in with the socialization skills for Matty with other dogs. For sure the love they deliver makes people invest in anything they deserve.

Victoria Gazeley April 12, 2011 at 3:01 am

What a fun article, Carol! I can’t imagine our Katie wearing anything (she HATES any sort of clothing attached to her – she had a neoprene jacket for hunting because she gets so cold, but she despised it). That said, pets sure are a HUGE business – in Vancouver there are countless raw pet food boutiques, pet snack bakeries and couture shops. So fascinating! Thanks for the look into this world which I know so little about!

Donovan Grant April 13, 2011 at 8:38 pm

This is an interesting post Carol. I have never been a dog owner, however I can see that dressing them up could be an interesting thing for the dogs to do!

Carol Rosenberg Giambri April 13, 2011 at 9:51 pm

HI Victoria, Thanks for sharing the world of Katie. Wow, a hunter. You must be in a very holistic environment. I would fit in except for the dress ware. My dog gets recycled to borrow for pictures only. Was fun to share the girl in a necklace. Appreciate you and your comments.

Carol Rosenberg Giambri April 13, 2011 at 9:52 pm

Donovan, what’s amazing the pampering money that goes into clothing or other gadgets that help a dog look special, have the best in life and be like a Rolls Royce to their owners. Mine get love pampered by us only. Thanks for sharing your comments.
