Now eight years old, Puma and I met 3 years ago, when I was volunteering at a local shelter. Unlike her “friends”, she was curled up in her crate and detached. We decided to become “roommates” and over the last few years she has slowly begun to accept affection. Being half Chow-Chow, she has always appreciated admiration!!
She has brought such unexpected joy and has even become a local TV celebrity! She is easily recognized as we stroll the streets of Chicago and, generally, when people see or recognize her, a smile is their first response.
She has inspired me to create a wholesale design and manufacturing firm which will produce apparel for large breed dogs (40 lbs +). She is 95 lbs and very agreeable to wearing her wardrobe of visors, raincoats and seasonal items! Her visors filter the sun from damaging her sight. In a few months, please look for items with the “Tailored” label. They will also indicate “Tailored in the USA” and a portion of the profits will be sent to shelters.
