for the pups

My little Dixie has been wearing the cupcake collar from Bella Bean Couture since she was a tiny pup! We are on round two currently, and for her birthday she is asking  for a new collar, clearly my girl Dixie has style.   This post is guaranteed to make you happy. Cute pups, snazzy collars…so feast your eyes! Do you have pets? Are they decked out to the nines?

good dogs gone wild

Don’t worry.  I promise they are secured in.
