Incredible Handmade Leather Collars...

Whenever somebody nay says Facebook I bring up Noel Christeen Thrower. This awesome artisan reconnected through Facebook with my husband. Their initial introduction? Well they went to kindergarten together... IN JAPAN. Yes, both military brats, I think Noel has outgrown the brat part. My husband? Not so much.
Anywho. How cool we re-connected with Noel! Not only is she a dog rescue/humane educating/service dog wielding/animal therapist all-around-swell-gal but she also has her own studio where she creates incredible leather works. How jazzed were we to get this custom hand dyed leather collar for Dugan? The craftsmanship is insane and the metal detailing with the clovers and Celtic knots is beyond fabulous. Noel even named this creation "The Dugan"

This is why...

* Alex and I did a little road trippin' last weekend and headed down to Benld, Illinois for a home visit for English Setter Rescue. We were so pleased to make that long drive to be able to meet Gloria and talk to her about adopting a setter and providing a forever home. Sure I may have complained it was 4.5 hours of driving each way past nothing but cornfields, and I drove Alex crazy jibber-jabbering in the car the whole way about how can there was nothing but cornfields to look at, but oh it was so worth it.
Not only did Gloria get approved for MacArthur, but she also adopted his former kennel-mate Patton. These two dogs were surrendered in Kentucky with 2 other setters because the former owner no longer wanted to hunt so simply disposed of them like unwanted kitchen appliances. Of the four dogs Ike was first adopted and now Gloria has Mac & Patton! (we still need to find a home for Winston folks! - click on adoptable dogs)
There were so many people who made this possible - OESR for stepping in to pull all four dogs, dedicated foster homes in different states caring for them and transport volunteers to get them to Gloria. But in the end, all these little acts added up to a happy homecoming. These pictures are of Gloria and MacArthur and Patton meeting yesterday in Indiana before heading home to southern Illinois. My heart is full that these dogs have found such a loving home.
It takes a village to get dogs homes, so do whatever little part you can. This happy rescue story is because many little pieces of the puzzle came together. Why don't you all find a way to be a part of the solution? Rescue, educate, It's more rewarding than you know.

Defoe Needs a Home!

This is Mr. B.B. Dafoe. He was nameless until the end of the ebay auction (to raise funding for his rescue group) to name him and he looks an awful lot like Oakley- the foster I had before him. He was an owner surrender from Bell county KY and I believe he lived his life on a chain outside until the family gave him up to the shelter for reasons unknown. He is quiet, cuddly, a little unsure, but otherwise great around kids, cats and other dogs. ~ Nikki (a.k.a. Awesome FosterDogMom) To see more info on Defoe go to: Online applications for all available dogs are there!
Note from Shannon the Head Bitch @ Lucky Fiona ~ *Ever wonder what we do with all the collars we have samples of or were made in the wrong size or have laying around the studio? Well, we send them out to foster dogs like Defoe! No need for pooches in need not to have style! If you are affilated with a rescue group that needs some collars please email:

Go Wide! 2.0 Width collars aren't just for Greyhounds anymore!

Hi Shannon,
We LOVE the collars! Thank you so much. Here are some pics of our doggies wearing them. Seamus is the greyhound and Lily is the lab. Thanks again!
Beth, John, Lily and Seamie

* Thanks for the kind words and pictures Beth! Fiona and I think Seamus & Lily look fab as well! Just goes to show that extra wide 2.0 inch width collars look fantastic on a traditional breed who wears them like a greyhound, but also any breed with the neck to pull off a bold look like your labrador Lily. So stylish, we love it!
