Oscar here! It's June—and you know what that means, right? It's PRIDE! YASSSS. The time of the year where there are parades aplenty, people embracing their best selves and a general feeling of celebration in NYC and around the world. It's a great time and, it coincides with summer, so, win win.
As part of Pride, you're likely to see people out and about, all dressed up. And the range of outfits on display go everywhere from leather daddies to drag queens to mermaids and beyond. So while reading about PRIDE this year, I was pleased to find something that may or may not be tied to the festivities but, which certainly allows members of the animal kingdom to have their part in the fun.
An organization named Inventions Insider, came up with a doggy outfit that looks downright Pride-filled. It's a vest that dogs can wear and it's available in super bright colors and adorned with spikes. Though festive in appearance, the vests serve a very practical purpose. The inventor of said vests, tragically experienced a doggy-related mishap, when his pooch was attacked and subsequently eaten by a coyote. So he invented these vests to not only make pets look tough, but also to protect them from predators. And the fact that these outrageous ouifits just so happen to look like they could belong in the Pride parade is a happy coincidence.
If you live in a rural area where your dog has frequent contact with bigger, tougher animals, this vest is a great way to keep your pooch safe.
So be safe and happy pride!
Til' next time,
