Our Recap of Pet Fashion Week NY

We're back from Pet Fashion Week NY! We want to share our experience of the event and say thanks to all our friends - and the press - who stopped by our booth.

The focus of this year's Pet Fashion Week Runway Show was the ECOuture Charity Fundraiser, which was developed to provide assistance to animal shelters by offering a reliable business opportunity and to recognize companies and designers that produce eco-friendly products. Guests were encouraged to donate product (i.e. excess inventory) to The Mayor’s Alliance for NYC’s Animals. The Mayor’s Alliance will then distribute the products to shelters, allowing them to create capital through end-consumer sales, silent auctions and raffles.

Ruff Ruff and Meow is proud to have supported The ECOuture Charity Fundraiser & The Mayor's Alliance for NYC's Animals by attending the fashion show at Pet Fashion Week.

You can bet we'll be on the lookout for more hot pet fashion trends... stay tuned!

If Dogs Could Vote: Obama vs .McCain!

The enthusiasm of the 2008 Presidential campaign is spreading throughout the nation. From the millions of Americans who watched the Democratic National Convention this past week to the millions who will be watching the Republican National Convention next week, this is one Presidential race that will go down in history - no matter who wins the election in November.

At Ruff Ruff and Meow, we've taken a less scientific approach of monitoring the campaign performance, but we've decided it's important to give our furry friends a voice in voting for the next President. From small dogs to big dogs to cats of all sizes, Ruff Ruff and Meow fans have raised their paws and want you to hear loud and clear who they support. Will it be Obama or McCain?

According to our estimates (as tallied by votes for Obama dog t-shirts, dog tank tops and dog bandanas vs. McCain dog t-shirts, dog tank tops and dog bandanas), Barack Obama is beating John McCain three to one.

Quite outstanding since according to reports, Barack Obama and his wife, Michelle, don't even own a dog! However, his opponent, John McCain and his wife, Cindy, reportedly have about 24 dogs of all different breeds.

So, if you want to help your dog have a vote in this election, be sure to order one of our cute dog t-shirts or tank tops, including "Bark for Barack" or "Barack for President" or "Mac is Back." We even have a few "Howl for Hillary" left! We're sure to have clothing that best suits your dog's personality. Don't forget you can even wear a matching human tank alongside your doggie duds! It's the perfect outfit for those heated political discussions at the dog park! So...Will it be a vote for Barack Obama or a vote for John McCain?

Check back with us in a few months... it will be interesting to see if our dogs can predict the winner?

Cats LOVE Ruff Ruff and Meow, too!

Ok - we admit it, we've been talking ALL about the dogs who love Ruff Ruff and Meow, and we've neglected to show some LOVE to all our cat friends, too. We're sorry... we know there are alot of Ruff Ruff and Meow fans who are cat lovers, too!

The truth is... Ruff Ruff and Meow designer pet clothes are designed to fit big and small dogs, and cats of all sizes! Our pet t-shirts and pet tank tops fit the same on cats making them the perfect accessory for them (and admit it - those fun holiday cards you just love to send to the relatives!). The soft 2x1 ribbed fabric gives each of our t-shirts and tank tops a fantastic stretch making them very easy to put on your cat!

Here are some of our cat friends wearing Ruff Ruff and Meow designs:

Green-eyed cat in "Bitches Love Me"

Grey, bald cat wearing - "Bad Hair Day"

Also, don't forget Ruff Ruff and Meow doggie steps are perfect for cats, too! They're just the solution for those aging or slightly overweight cats who simply need a little extra help with getting up to your bed or couch in order to snuggle up next to you and purr the night away. Of course, we promise we won't say a thing if you tell your cat the dog step is actually called a "kitty step!"

The same goes for Ruff Ruff and Meow Lounge Beds! Cat love curling up in the middle of our soft & comfy Lounge Beds!
