This giveaway has ended. Thanks for entering!
Before I had Ella, Priscilla was my baby. Priscilla, aka Prissy, is my 6 year old Shih-tzu. Now, I’m not really a small dog person. But Prissy was a gift for my dad and she didn’t get along with his dogs, so she became mine. Prissy lives up to her name, yet she is a tom boy at heart. That is her in the button for pet week- in mid-run about to leap off of a dock into a lake.
Since I didn’t have a child, Prissy became my pseudo baby. She let me dress her up, put bows in her hair and let me carry her around in a bag. Yes, I was one of those people. When I worked at a photo studio in the mall, she would come in on pet nights and just hang out. She is a good dog. But since the birth of Ella, Prissy isn’t as spoiled as she used to be. I don’t come home with bags of toys or buy cute little outfits for her to wear around the house. Now, it’s just necessities.
In Charlotte our winters aren’t brutal, but it does get down in the 20’s-30’s quite often. Shih-tzu’s have thin coats and sweaters are a must on frigid days. As I was browsing around looking at pet gear I came across Puppy Pie and fell in love!
Puppy Pie makes beautiful Eco-friendly dog sweaters from reclaimed wool and cashmere clothing. They are thoroughly cleaned and sanitized and then made into unique sweaters for your dog. I love that there is a dog clothing company who is reducing the amount of waste by reusing fabrics in creative, high end fashion for your dog!! Don’t worry, you won’t spend $100 on a dog cashmere sweater, they have Eco-friendly prices. Since the fabrics have gone through a felting and shrinking process, you are able to wash the sweaters in case your puppy rolls around in the dirt. Each sweater is a one of a kind original handmade in California. They come in sizes 0-3, or chest sizes 13-23 inches.
Priscilla got 2 sweaters from Puppy Pie to review and was the happiest puppy in the world when I put them on her! I had no clue she missed dressing up… who would have thought. She had to show off and prance around everyone that stopped by when she was wearing her new sweaters. It was too cute.
The Button Back Girl is made from recycled cashmere and is super soft. I love the button details on the ruffles! You can unbutton the sweater to get it on or off or you can slip the sweater on over your dogs head. It will definitely keep your dog warm in cool temperatures. The stitching is built to last and is flawless. It even has a tiny recycled sign at the bottom.
This is a sweater from the Sample Sale going on right now. It is not made from cashmere, but with cotton. The sample sale items are early prototypes for the wool and cashmere lines. There are several sweaters in the sale, so be sure to check them out. I love the belt with this sweater!! It so fits Prissy’s personality.
