2/12/12 - Well, It's 2012 and here in Michigan we're looking at the most snow we've seen all year. I don't think any of us are complaining (except maybe the skiers!) I'm getting back on track with updating the website so please bear with me. With Facebook making updating so easy, I tend to reach out to folks that way but that's not going to get to everyone, so stay tuned!
Like I said Doggone Bandanas is on Facebook. Like us and you'll get updates sent to your page as they happen. I have occasional contests and discount opportunities and am always looking for feedback and darn that Mark Zuckerberg just makes it so easy. So make sure you stop by and click on the "Like".
Whether you have a dog, or have a friend with a dog, I hope you find a bandana or two that will suit your four-legged friend. There are lots to choose from and more being added all the time.
If by some chance you don't find what you're looking for, click on the "Contact Us" tab and let me know. I just may be able to find it for you.Thanks again for visiting and please tell your friends!
Now for some History:
Not that kind of history, just a little about me. I was an only child, which lent itself to being creative. And ever since I was little, I had entrepreneurial spirit. I'll never forget making little fuzzy people out of yarn balls, felt feet, and googly eyes. My neighbors across the street would have an annual garage sale and I hit pay dirt the day I bought a small bag full of little plastic fire engine hats. Oh how cute those would look on my fuzzy people! I'd go door-to-door trying to sell them.
Who knew that (ahem) twenty some years later, my neighbor would inspire me to take my passion for dogs and love of using my creativity and turn it into a business. Even when I can't decide whether to update my site, or sew bandanas, or any of the other things involved in a small business, I enjoy it more than I can say. One of the nicest feelings is seeing a dog somewhere and recognizing his or her bandana as one of mine.
Because of that (and other reasons), I take a lot of pride in my work. I'm constantly looking for ways to improve, or come up with new ideas. I believe in integrity. I will not sell my product in stores that use puppy mills. I will not have my product manufactured. Each and every bandana is made by me and always will be. I repurpose almost everything that isn't used in the making of bandanas from the empty thread spools to fabric scraps - all donated to schools and others that will use them in some fashion. I'm commited to social responsibility. I hope you are too. If you like what you've read, please tell your friends. The highest compliment I can receive is a referral to your friends. Thank you - and remember, every action makes a difference.
Here's a picture of my boy, Odie, contributing to the family business. He's such a trooper!
