Designer Doodles Puppy Store is an art installation created by Kathleen Thometz of Doodle Art & Design. For the month of December and the first week of January she has turned her tiny art studio into a puppy store!
Nope, they're not real puppies but they are really cute! Thometz has taken the doodle dog out of her logo and has brought it to life, sort of. They're cute, hand sewn doodle dog pillows in a variety of colors. If you're a doodle lover, you'll be sure to find one that matches your live version.
The puppy store will be an interactive experience. If you choose to adopt one of these cuties for $39, you'll get a bandana and dog bowl, which you can personalize in the shop. Each dog and its accessories will travel home in a cozy, adorable bag. Ten percent of all proceeds will go to Bark From The Heart Rescue in Countryside.
Where did Thometz get her inspiration? "My art business is geared toward kids, so I love the idea of introducing them to art collecting at a young age. My doodle dogs are limited edition and fun but they are art. The kids will be able to name their dog and will be required to sign a "contract" agreeing to their pup's care. So there's an educational aspect as well as a fun one."
