the pet accessory dilemma


We recently adopted a beautiful coonhound mix, Otis from our local shelter.

To buy Otis a bed, collar, leash, even un-ugly toys was a problem.  Everything was either over accessorized with bows,  ruffles, studs, spikes, or it was brown corduroy-sofa boring.

Here are a few of the accessories I found in my research that would blend in and/or enhance with most interiors.

These are the my favorites:
