My Beloved & I outfits great relationships so that togetherness, joy and hope thrive in everyday encounters.
I have always been an idea person with an entrepreneurial spirit. My Beloved & I is a business with the facets of apparel and doggie desserts that have developed out of my heart for joy and togetherness. I knew I wanted to start a part time company and home based businesses have many advantages. A doggie dessert company was a perfect way to blend business and the happy spot in my heart for dogs.
The Barkery sells dog treats in lots of different flavors, with even a grain free line, and makes a great gift for people with dogs. All my treats are made in the USA with human grade ingredients...and yes, I have eaten them all! Selling the treats at local craft fairs every fall has created great on-going friendships with my customers. I love to watch how picking out different flavors of treats stirs up joy in their hearts. We love to give things that make our loved ones happy and creating a home of togetherness, that includes our fur kids, helps our hearts expand.
The apparel facet of the company began when I discovered that there’s nothing that cannot be accomplished with a great idea and a circle of friends! Togetherness, a celebrated foundation of this company, is a healing agent and the way My Beloved operates. My friends are also the ones caring for the website, sewing and packaging treats.
Creating coordinating fashion for everyday life that celebrates togetherness is my love. This apparel company creates dog coats and bandanas with coordinating scarves and jewelry for people. Every year at craft shows my repeat customers were showing me pictures of their dogs wearing the collar cover bandanas I have made. I realized that I was the one outfitting the dogs in my area with cute fashion year after year! I decided to expand the fashion line to include scarves and jewelry for people and coats for dogs, all created with coordinating fabrics. Even people that don’t have dogs of their own, admit that the coordinating fabrics are fantastic and add a new dimension of joy to everyday dog activities. These are fun for family photos, daily walks and outings with your dog.
I've written a series of 2 books about my dogs, available on Amazon.com, called Heaven's Solution: Leaning and Heaven's Solution: Winning. Everything about My Beloved & I shares the common theme of love and togetherness with your dog. I love having a business that promotes joy, hope and togetherness! Owning my own business gives me the freedom to create things that are from my heart and help dog owners stay in touch with what makes them happy. Our friendships with our dogs and each other are to be dressed in kindness and honor. It is my greatest desire for my businesses to make a difference in the lives they touch and I hope yours is one.
