In the last few months, it's been an extremely busy time for the shelter. There have been non-stop calls, texts, DM's to our Facebook page, and WhatsApp messages notifying us of dogs in need.
Last December I retired from my career and chose Puerto Vallarta as my full time retirement home. Before choosing, I traveled the world, looking for the perfect place to retire. My husband who I met in North Carolina, is originally from Hidalgo, Mexico, but he had never been to Puerto Vallarta. We have no family here, but this is a friendly place and we made many friends quickly. The sun, the sunsets, the beach, the artistic vibe and most importantly, the energy of the Ley Lines drew us here.
One of my retirement hobbies is creating RON•DOG designer collars and leads. My inspiration is my beautiful dog named Grazzie. She is a 7.5 pound pomapoo with gorgeous long white fur. She loves to wear fancy doggie dresses and all the attention she receives. She worked for my business in America as a Certified Therapy Dog, and taught children about Stranger Danger, Reading skills, and Fire Safety in the public schools. She has also performed at Movie Previews and in Las Vegas. This was a good excuse to bring my dog with me to work everyday. Ordinary collars from the pet store were just too ordinary for this very special pup, so I started creating extra fancy apparel for her. Each collar and lead is a unique design. This is a great way for me to combine my love of art and design with fashion and function.
RON•DOG designer collars and leads are available now at Lucy’s Shop next to the Blue Shrimp Restaurant in Los Muertos.
Just like people, dogs get bored with the same old everyday routine. Keeping them mentally challenged and constantly exposing them to new things is just as important as taking them for walks and exercising them. Bored dogs develop destructive behaviors and take their negative energy out on things like your furniture.
