Duds for Dogs (and other ways to spend a LOT of dough on your pet)



I've been perusing dog magazines of late and am amazed, first, at their proliferation - there are about 50, general interest and breed specific, from what I can tell - second at the fashion spreads and ads. (This picture is the Nov. 2005 cover of New York Dog, featuring interviews with Mafia princess Victoria Gotti and fashion icon Oleg Cassini about their dogs).

Now, I'm neither inclined to dress my guys up, beyond the occasional bandanna, nor in possession of sufficient disposable income to splurge on things like $320 hand-carved beds or $120 cashmere sweaters (which would probably be torn to shreds in minutes).

But anyone who wants to can find unlimited ways to spend in these magazines, as well as Q&As with vets, trainers and pet psychics. Articles might be about grieving for a lost pet, pet-friendly travel, or doggie makeovers (really. The March NY Dog has a ''Queer Eye for the Scruffy Dog'' feature, transforming a shelter Yorkie named Charming into such a magnificent creature that he was adopted the next day).

I've just subscribed to a couple of these publications, and will be passing on tidbits. For more on New York Dog, click here.

Boca Dog

its not the place! its the additude!
Seriously these folks attack some intresting issues and every montha shelter or rescue dog goes through a makeover and is fetured on the cover. Really nice people trying to do something nice wiht a sense of humor. I brought some down with me to the People pets and vets event at the Miami Childrens last week and they gone in five minutes.
and while I'm here cudos to Dr Marta Lista and the other veterinarians who took the time to sponsor this event at the Miami childrens museum and doing something positive about pet education in south florida,
