Every Molly deserves VIP treatment!

Always the bridesmaid, never the bride @ Pride!

Tuesday, June 17th, 2008

Our of the bestselling items from our summer collection every year is our fabulous “Never the Bride” tank top from our Dog Bridal Boutique. Our bridal collection is popular with people who want to include their pets in their wedding party, actual doggy weddings and as a surprise gag for the bride or groom on the morning of the wedding. Imagine our amusement at finding out that the theme for the Dublin Pride Festival ’08 is “Always the bridesmaid, never the bride” . We figured it would be rude of us not to attend the Pride Parade on saturday (seeing as we already had our outfits sorted and everything!) Claire & Brona will be the brides and Molly will be our bridesmaid. It will be hard to miss a 28 kilo dalmatian cross wearing a pink bridesmaids outfit, so if you do see us come say hi! If you are planning on bringing your pet to pride and need some inspiration for their outfit, check out our Super Stripe rainbow collars, leads & harnesses and our Rainbow Tank Top.

Happy Pride Week,

Claire and Molly

Lucky the hot dog :)

Tuesday, June 10th, 2008

Our fluffy collie/terrier mix Lucky ADORES the sun. The trouble is, in hot weather he doesn’t know when he’s too hot and will sit there, baking and cranky, refusing to come into the shade.

We’re helping to keep him from over heating by brushing him regularly to get rid of any dead hair in his undercoat so his skin can breathe better. His undercoat is like candy floss, I’m always amazed at how much comes off in the brush! I find that this soft slicker brush works best on his coat.

A couple of years ago I invested in this sandbox from Smyths (it was still available today according to their online catalog.) I half fill it with water and a mixture of floating toys and heavier ones that sink to the bottom. Molly and Lemar love dipping their faces in to fish out the toys and it really helps cool them off. But of course, Lucky always refuses to leave his precious sunny spot by the back door… so instead I wet one of his tshirts before putting it on him; this always helps and he really seems to appreciate it, especially since he doesn’t have to move!

I never bring the hounds anywhere without a Handi-drink especially on long walks or car journeys – and have recently discovered they can also be used to spray the back of Lucky’s neck and face when he’s overheating.

I also put ice cubes in their water dishes to keep the water cold.

I hope you find this helpful, feel free to post any other tips for keeping your “hot dog” cool!
