by guest contributor Karalee Serra

I am honored to be a guest blogger on Indie Fixx! As an owner of two wonderful little dog monsters, Matilda and my newest addition, Raisin, I thought it would be fitting to do a post on pet centered art and design.

Pet owners are a special breed. We treat our animals like family members, best friends and children. We buy them toys to play with, style them with clothing and accessories, immortalize them in plush, hang pictures of them on the walls, adorn ourselves with pet jewels…pretty much anything to let the world know, we love our pets! We owe our thanks and appreciation to all the amazing artists creating animal related art to feed our pet obsessions. I’m so excited to be able to share with you a sampling of some of my favorites.

    I love this, adore really. I have a pet lover etsy site and thought I’ve seen most of the amazing items on there–but that purse! To die. Love it. Love finding new items! Thanks for the blog, it is great!

    I have a little Shi Tzu who is the love of my life — he’s best friend, dear companion, and the hairiest member of the family. I love everything “dogs” and so I always appreciate dog trinkents and he’s got a larger waredrobe of clothing then I do.

    My only regret is that I am allergic to cats!
