I’ve just arrived home from Finn’s fitting. Most of you know Finn (see previous post Rescue Dog: Meet Finn (Survivor)). And many of you also know that my boy has very little fur on his chest and tummy, so he gets cold—especially at night when my wood heater burns out (see previous post Popsicle Dog, Truchas, NM).
I recently met a group of women who are recycling discarded clothing, turning them into new fashions (see previous post UpCycled Fashion: Cutting Edge Clothing With a Conscience). Not only do they sell their already designed and constructed clothing, they will also take on custom orders.
So, of course, this got me thinking about my Finn. I asked Jean and Anita if they would consider making him a fleece coat. Absolutely! They would love to. And, being the intensely creative beings that they are, they are taking the idea further and creating a whole new line of pet fashions! So you all can order custom garments from them, as Finn and I did, or peruse their soon-to-be line of pet clothing (pupcycled.com).
I promised to share Finn’s custom fashion experience with you, so I thought we’d start at the beginning: his fitting. He fell in love with Anita and Jean and was surprisingly comfortable with the whole situation. In fact Finn gives an enthusiastic claws-up to the whole process.
So, give the folks at PupCycled Fashion a call at 575-387-2308, or visit their website (which is just being built) at pupcycled.com, for more information.
I’ll show you his finished coat in an upcoming post soon, I promise.
Love to you all,
