Haute Dog Reversible Bandanna by AstridNicoleEtcetera

This bandanna by AstridNicoleEtcetera is a great accessory for dogs that celebrates the monthly challenge as it reminds us that our canine companions come in all shapes and sizes.

Shortly after adopting Astrid in 2006 from the Santa Cruz Humane Society in Nogales, AZ, we realized that we wanted to 'give back' to the shelter for the joy that Astrid brought into our lives. Since April of 2008, we have been crafting bandannas and collars for dogs and donating the net profits to the shelter that gave Astrid a home while she waited for her forever home with us.


  1. Is there anything cuter than an adorable dog wearing an adorable doggie bandana?!

    A MESSAGE: ALL Rescue Dogs are Worth Rescuing

    Plus it doesn't hurt that the bandannas are a wonderful bargain, well made. We use them for decoration, dipped in cool water and hung around the neck of you or your dog cools you off quickly, a drool rage for some breeds, and towel.
