Pink Isn’t Just for the Ladies

Remember the recent controversy surrounding the dog who supposedly acted “gay” and was consequently surrendered to a shelter by his owner?

That ignorant guy probably wouldn’t appreciate Charlie Machete’s latest outfit, either.

"Is this a good color on me?"

It’s a boy dog! Wearing pink!

I, however, think my big black foster dog looks extra fetching in hot pink!

He didn’t seem to mind rocking my old t-shirt, either. 

Maybe that’s because dogs are colorblind.

Or maybe it’s because Charlie Machete admires how distinguished Scooby the elderpin looks in his #skybluepink sweater from Tiennot Knits.

Boy dogs look good in pink.

Regardless, Charlie Machete pranced around in the hot pink tee for over an hour, not once attempting to wiggle out of it.

Zach’s sister, who babysat the black dogs while we were in Nebraska over the weekend, agreed that her favorite Wayward Dog looks good in the bold color.

What do you think? Does Charlie Machete look pretty handsome in pink?

If you aren’t intimidated by a guy who is willing to rock hot pink or Cabela’s camo, consider making Charlie Machete your own!

Fashion-a-Bull Fall Fun

Are you feeling Fashion-a-Bull?

Charlie Machete felt very fashion-a-bull yesterday when he donned a Thundershirt + bandana for the Coast to Coast Bully Walk with KC Pittie Pack. We’ll call it his Preppy Guy Halloween Costume.

KC Pittie Pack had a bigger turnout – and more bully breed dogs – than usual for our special Pit Bull Awareness Day Walk.

Emily from Our Waldo Bungie and her husband Daniel wisely left their dogs at home so that they could document the event and get photos of everyone holding up the signs inspired by Animal Farm Foundation’s “I Am the Majority” campaign.

You can check out more photos at the KC Pittie Pack pages on Facebook and Meetup.

If you’ve been following my posts all week, you also know that today is another big day for me in the way of bully breed awareness efforts and fashion.

I am so excited about everything Katty Delux, the Madewell gals and I have in store (pun intended) for this fabulous autumn event!

Fashion-a-Bull shoppers will be greeted at the door by some friendly doggies, including one wearing a Tiennot Knits Sweater, and some four-legged Chiefs fans who are coming over from Kennel Creek Pet Resort.

The first 20 shoppers will receive a free treat bag full of gifts and notes from our event sponsors.

The raffle prize list includes gift certificates from Tiennot Knits, Kennel Creek and many other awesome donors. And the list of goodies you can win just keeps getting better!

Katty scored a donation from Umba Box, and I picked up these gorgeous, handmade magnets from the Magnet Lady Kathleen Henn last night.

Wouldn’t these look great on your fridge?

So far, we are about $150 toward our goal of raising $500 for the care of the dogs of Midwest Adopt-a-Bull.

If you are in the Kansas City area, please consider stopping by the Madewell shop at Town Center Plaza in Leawood. Our party is happening from 4-6 p.m.

Raffle tickets are $5, and winners need not be present to claim their prize.

Those who don’t take home a raffle prize can win as shoppers. Madewell has several sales going on right now, plus a special discount for our party. Everyone who attends will be entered in a drawing for a Madewell gift card and get to enjoy complimentary refreshments.
