Tails From Rainbow Bridge: Hattie Mae Originals Made Available to her Fans

I began the search for Hattie Mae a month ago.  My minions looked everywhere for the world’s most famous dog fashionista.  I started hearing whispers of a beautiful Jack Russell Terrier living in a remote cottage in the South of France.  I checked Google Angel and saw a little dog, wearing large sunglasses, sitting on a beach chair, being waited on by attentive poodles.  Could this be my lifelong friend?
I fluttered down and waited for the poodles to be dismissed then I snuck up behind her.  “Hattie Mae?” I asked.
“Who is there?” she asked.  “Come show yourself.  My vision isn’t very good.  Come close.”
I walked in front of her.  She put a paw on my face.  “You seem familiar.”  I removed the cucumber slices covering her eyes to keep the wrinkles away.  “Oh, that’s better.  Why Foley Monster.  It is wonderful to see you.  Oh no, you are not here to take me?” she asked.  
“Of course not Hattie.  It is not going to be your time for years.  And when it is they will send hundreds of your friends to help you cross over.”
“Oh Foley,” she fussed.  “You gave me a fright.”  She composed herself.  “Now, what do I owe this great honor?”
I sat on the edge of her beach chair.  “I was talking to Pocket, and she said her closet is overflowing with Hattie Mae Originals. She would like to share them with her friends.  She can’t wear them all, and when River wears a dress, she looks like a bull dyke at a rodeo.”
“Oh, Foley!’’ Hattie Mae scolded me.  “Language.  Please apologize for your most ungracious behavior.”
I had almost forgotten Hattie Mae’s penchant for making sure I never strayed towards cruelness.  I apologize to those I offended.
“Okay then,” Hattie smiled.  “While I love Pocket having my designs if she wants to share them with other pups, and they make the pups happy, then I would be thrilled.  You do whatever you need to make that happen.”  She gave me a kiss.  “Now scurry off. I have a pedicure coming.”  I thanked her and fluttered away.
You are probably asking how do I get a Hattie Mae Original?  First, if you want to wear one, you have to be a wee dog.  Most of the clothes were made for dogs under ten pounds.  Some of the pictures shows slightly larger clothes that can fit River who is 12 pounds.  If you don’t want to wear them, but want to own one as a keepsake, that is fine too.
We have put pictures of them below with numbers.  Either message us or email us at and we will send one too you if they are available.  Remember, since they don’t cost you anything they can only become more valuable.
Happy shopping.

    I have wanted to dress up my girls, Lucy and Carli, but I don't think those dresses would fit around their legs! Lucy weighs almost 70 lbs and Carli is about 58 lbs. They are beautiful outfits and Darla does such a good job!
