DJ RyRY Doggie Designs

Two of my favorite things are fashion and animals. My mom helped me think of putting them together and making dog clothes for shelter dogs. Shelter dogs have to be shaved sometimes because they can be dirty or their fur is ruined and they will need to keep warm. For Christmas I got a sewing machine from my grandma and my other grandma taught me how to use it. We made a practice shirt for our dog Opie. Opie is a rescue dog. We made the shirt out of my brother's old onesie. We are collecting more onesies to keep making clothes.

Our friend Mindi who has a group called Bailing Out Benji helped me find a group that donates blankets to animal rescues. The group is called Wrapped In Love. I am going to learn how to make blankets and also send clothes to the animals. Mindi also helped me find a cat rescue in Stanhope, Iowa where I can volunteer to play with kitties who don't have homes yet.

I like to like to learn about and share about shelter animals. One of the places where I learn a lot about this is at school when we Skype with Jena Ball and Marty Keltz about CritterKin. CritterKin is about loving animals because they are part of our family. 

I am going to keep making clothes so I can help lots of animals. Maybe when I am older I can make clothes for other animals.
