In the wake of the Boston bombings, as compassionate humans, we find ourselves asking “What can I do?” Well instead of asking, we have a suggestion!
Carlos Perez, a Senior Art Director residing in Boston, has created a print to provide support to fund those affected by the Boston bombings. Along with his wife Leah, Carlos developed My Alphapets, where colorful characters are created out of the letters of an individual’s name. The Alphapets are printed on heavy card stock, framed and sent to your home.
To support the tragedy, the Boston Terrier Alphapet was created. According to their website, the terrier is a representation of strength and character, like the City of Boston.
So if you find, yourself asking “What can I do?”. Please join the movement and purchase one of the Boston Terrier Alphapets prints. All net proceeds will go to the ONE FUND.

Personally I am dying to wrap up my little ones in this snuggie and say Buona Notte!
I am always so grateful and honored when I get letters and e-mails from parents, teachers and children telling me how much they love my books. This came in the mail to me today from a reader of PupStyle Red Carpet Pups and I was so touched words can’t describe!
Thank you Isabel Martinez for putting a HUGE smile on my face! Yes, you can count on that autograph!
While at Global Pet Expo in Feb this year, I was thrilled to find Issac Mizarahi’s new line of pet products and anxiously awaiting for be readily available. Still a bit hard to find while digging through the web, but it won’t be long!
Issac could be designing garbage bags and I would still buy them simply because I adore him and know he really is a dog lover not just a poser. He’s following a HOT pet fashion trend using a lot of different plaids but with his signature Isaac twist! His line consists of some of my favs in dog fashion like, neck ties and bow ties for boy dogs and fashion poo pick-up bags. His line is very dark in color waves so you must not be afraid to cross over to the dark side!
As summer approaches so do home break-in’s. Thankfully dogs generally make the best home alarm systems, but some breeds would rather be a diva and have their own personal security squad.
As a mom of kids with two legs and four security is constantly on my mind at all times and I started thinking about “who will protect my dog?” instead of expecting my 5 Lb Chihuahua to do the job. It dawned on me that home security systems are not only here to protect us and our personal property, but our pets too!
If you are a PupStyle reader, you most likely have a nice stash of dog fashion, expensive dog collars and leashes and insist on only the best for your fur-baby. There are several home alarm systems providers on the market and you can find out more on TotalAlarmSystems.com and all over the web. Some even have sophisticated equipment like motion sensors that can ignore your dog’s movement elimincating any nasty false alarms…EEEK!
Dogs will always do their best to protect us, but some times, they might need a little back-up protection themselves. Something to think about..hummmmt!!!
My obsession with shoes by Irregular Choice , a UK based Company is legendary. When I lived in Soho I was a regular at their now defunct boutique on Lafayette Street.
Before they skipped town I was able to get my hands on the Scottie Dog shoes and Clutch. New for this season and a must have for Dog Lovers everywhere is the Puppy Love Shoe.
These babies would make James Gaylord Muir the first sales manager for Hush Puppies proud. Mr. Muir is responsible for the WWII slang phrase “my dogs are barking” after dining with one of his regional salesman over traditional southern hush puppies.
When Mr. Muir asked about the origin of the name of the southern appetizer he was told that farmers threw hush puppies at the hounds to “quiet their barking dogs.” Mr. Muir surmised that his shoes were so comfortable they could “quiet barking dogs” , the venacular for feet in those days.
Pupstylers are now not only stylish, but also well versed in the history of the Hush Puppie. So slip a pair of these cute , absolutely comfy, flats on and they will quiet those barking dogs when it’s time to slip off those heels!
I’m a little obsessed with JCP right now. Not only do thier stores look amazing but they keep suprising us at every turn. Happy Chic by Jonathan Adler fuses colorful patterns, great design and quality at affordable prices in a glamorous new collection that mixes classic design and current trends.

Check out this special behind the scenes video shot by Christian Merry and Rick Van Benschoten during the making of my new children’s sticker book releasing next year in 2014. This funny & heart warming video will no doubt stir up conversation about how fulfilling the life of a handicapped dog can be. Oscar does not have use of his back legs and uses a wheel chair to zoom around New York City. Check him out modeling as “Rocket Dog” for my latest book! Go OSCAR!!!!
