On Friday, I introduced all of you to our fundraiser and giveaway, which will benefit our rescue, LCPO! You may remember that I promised to offer 2 prizes, to be given away at random to two of the generous donators. I am so happy to report that the response to our fundraiser has been so great, that we will be able to provide much more than that! Over the next few days, I will be bringing you information on each of our generous sponsors, all of whom create products that we passionately support and/or utilize ourselves! I can’t wait to introduce you to these guys!! Not only that, but we have decided that to be most fair, for each donation in increments of $10, you will be entered to win. For example, if you make a $20 donation, you will be entered twice!
Little Bow Pup: Quilted Bow Tie
One of the prizes I am most excited about is this gorgeous bow tie, generously donated by Little Bow Pup! Their Etsy store offers a quick way to check out stunning pup accessories, meant to dress up any collar or harness. These accessories include bow ties and flowers, and they are artfully handcrafted and quilted by our friend Ashley, who also runs the blog Pitlandia. What a small world! The girls in our house are especially salivating over these goodies, but Little Bow Pup provides accessories for the four-legged boys & girls! We will definitely be purchasing a few of our own. Why shouldn’t our pups be as fashionable and well-dressed as their owner
tries to be?!
Did I mention that they also sell whimsical tutus? I am such a sucker for a pittie butt, especially when they are encircled by brightly-colored tulle!
Check out the Little Bow Pup facebook page for some gorgeous shots of Ashley’s diva dog, Athena, modeling her goods. She is a rescued pittie, and quite the spoiled one at that! Don’t your dogs deserve to be outfitted as fashionably as Miss Athena?
All joking aside… while there is nothing more amusing than dressing up our dogs, remember that there is a higher purpose associated with this act. We are all about advocating for the lovable snuggle-bugs that we know as pit bulls. A big muscley dog dressed in a tu-tu is a great way to encourage people to approach your dog for some quality cuddle time… which you can take as an opportunity to advocate for your breed! Who wouldn’t want to meet a dashing, dapper dog dressed up in a bow-tie?! These accessories especially serve a great purpose when it comes to foster dogs. The more people your foster dog meets-and-greets, the more likely they are to find a great home! Finally, accessories like these can make a great donation to your local shelter, as they work really well to create interest pieces in photos of shelter pups. Thanks to Ashley for creating a product that is not only fun and adorable, but also helps spread awareness for our bully breeds.
A most sincere thank you goes out to those of you who have already donated and/or shared, as well as to our contributors. It is funny how in times like these, you can find out who your real supporters are! If you are dying to be entered to win your very own bow tie from our generous friends Ashley & Athena at Little Bow Pup, head here to make a donation to our fundraiser for LCPO! Remember, each donation in increments of $10 will earn you an additional entry.All photos on this post courtesy of Little Bow Pup!
