Who Let The Dogs Out?
Today was the Maui Humane Society's annual fundraising event titled "Bark in the Park" with the theme of 60's Flower Power and an opportunity for decked out dogs and owners to strut their stuff. There were booths selling fabulous pet gear of all kinds, prizes, a colorful pet costume contest and lots of fun activities.
Here's some of my favorite photos from today with websites to purchase cute doggie (and cat) outfits, apparel, gifts and what not! Maui has really gone to the dogs in a good way for the pet-themed business is booming here and going dog-gone wild!
Allison Way's adorable Bassett Hound won Best of Show. Allison owns the company Dog Gone Maui (firstname.lastname@example.org), and she sells doggie t-shirts, sunglasses, doggie carriers and even makes a lot of her own designer dog apparel.
Another company I discovered (with the owner a fellow blogger to boot!) is Hula Dog They offer "fashions that feel good", and how could I resist these two items for gift-giving? They offer apparel for both men and women with the island vibe.
If you want your dog to have a fashionable collar, fun and hip accessories, Bully and Pablo is your island place to shop. Here's a photo of some of their non-everyday collars for your special pooch. I like that leopardskin one, and I don't even own a dog. Hmmmm......
The special tile showcased at the beginning of this posting is made by Kimble, a company which makes whimsical hand-painted tiles of dogs and cats (and other images as well). Their business card states that "commissions welcome". If you wish to reach them, their email is email@example.com.
Ok, ok...I know you dog lovers want to see more 60's attired dogs, so feast your eyes on these Maui cuties! Bow-wow WOW!
