So... I have this theory...if 1/4 of the dog and cat owners love their pets the way I do and love to spoil them and dress them up my plan should work.
I had the revelation when I was at Port Dover with my sister, mom and nephews on the weekend. While people watching, I spotted these 2 adorable chihuahuas hanging out with their "mom" and "dad". They arrived in style in a pink polka dot basket. They tested the water in their little pink Burberry style life jackets. They soon sported their screen printed t-shirts after being hand dried with their special towels. I thought to myself "wow those are some spoiled dogs". I know my dogs are spoiled but c'mon a pink picnic basket?
Then it came to me..... pet jewellery!!! I know this is not a new idea but the baubles made for dogs and cats these days are indeed expensive. I should have given the owners of the spoiled dogs my card and told them I would make some custom bling for their pooches (at a reasonable price).
Oh well, off to the drawing (or beading) board to see what I can come up with.
Wish me luck!
