Haute Dog!

Something terrible has happened!  This is might even be more tragic than the crumbling of the very solid foundation on which Kim Kardashian and whats-his-name built their wonderful marriage.  Here, in the twilight of her life, I have found the CUTEST DOG COLLAR EVER MADE by Luxe Mutt.  For nearly 15 years, I have settled on collar after collar, always in search of the one that really gave Chloe that dogrun-way chic look, and now, just in the nick, I have found it!  Dog knows how long she she will have the opportunity to prance around in it before she goes to the big bully stick in the sky (extreme sad face) but at least she will have some time on earth as the worlds most stylish dog.  The tragedy is that I have only found it now, near the end.  I have to admit, I cried a little yesterday when I pulled it out of the bag and she (without being able to see it--she is blind) knew it was a new collar and she did a downward dog and wiggled her butt and put her head down and kept still so I could put the new collar around her neck.  Then she pranced around like a puppy with her new digs.  Luxe Mutt is new so I wanted to give them a shout out.  I bought the collar in LA at Pussy and Pooch, but you can order it from Etsy as well.  It was $65, which I don't think I've ever spent on a collar, but well worth it, I think.  I mean...
They have it styled as a "bow tie".  I prefer the bow at the back...

  1. Hi:
    Your beautiful post about our collar and your beloved 15 year old Chloe truly touched me. She looks beyond adorable and your photos are great too. Your vivid description about placing the collar on her for the first time got me quite choked up. I agree that its the cutest collar ever made, but it means so much more coming from you than us! Sending you and Chloe our warmest wishes. She's lucky to have such a loving (& cool) mom. And you inspired me to do some photos of the collar worn the Chloe way.

  2. Aww Chloe looks stylin!! That blue matches her beautiful future seers.

  3. Ahhhh! I am freaking out over the cuteness! That dog licking its nose with the bow tie on... OMG. I just died. LOVE IT!

  4. Aww, this post made me tear up a little because I have been in that spot myself. Chloe obviously knows she looks great and that it makes you happy, so enjoy the moment like she is :)

    And the collar is PRECIOUS! I love that it's not fabric that will get water/food stained in 2 weeks.
