Roger Caras said "Dogs are not our whole life but they make our lives whole." He was wrong. When you live with four, obedience train two, agility train two and co-own a dog boutique:(GollyGear); dogs are your life. And life is good.

Back from Louisville, with ribbons!
Last weekend Hope and I went to Louisville for 4 action-filled days of
dog shows! We both competed in Agility (Hope with Teddy, and me with
Tango), and Hope competed in Rally Obedience with Dax. In just three
days, Dax received her Rally Novice title! Tango and I had fun but only
had one qualifying run in Open Standard. Teddy and Hope did a little
better with two qualifying runs - one in Open Jumpers and one in Open
Standard. - Fran
Hope and Fran are sisters and owners of GollyGear - a shop specializing in fun, affordable, and practical products especially for small dogs.
We believe that dogs are wonderful companions and their presence enriches our lives. We also know how difficult it can be to find appropriate "gear" for our small dogs, which is why we founded Golly Gear. We make it a point to discover the best products for small dogs and share them with other, devoted dog lovers.
Fran has two dogs: Tango, a 4-year-old Brussels Griffon who got off to a bit of a rough start, but is rapidly becoming an amazingly wonderful companion, and Booker, a Boston Terrier puppy born in November of 2012. Hope has Dax, an eight-year old French Bulldog with Novice Agility and Novice Agility Jumper titles; Teddy a 3-year-old fawn Frenchie with attitude and Open Standard and Jumpers titles; and Roc, an 11-year-old Brussels Griffon, who decided to retire with Novice titles in Obedience and Rally and now proudly practices his couch-potato prowess.
Golly Gear is named for Fran's Brussels Griffon, Golly - who was a discriminating judge of all things dog throughout her life.
