Travel Kitchener: Dog Bathrobes at First Annual Pet Expo
Victor is channeling his inner Hugh Hefner. Well, not really, he’s fixed. (Victor not Hef). But my dog is rocking his new silk smoking jacket microfiber bathrobe from Hapu, a small company I discovered at Kitchener, Ontario’s first annual Pet Expo in May 2016. Yes, that’s right. I bought my dog a bathrobe. In fact, […]
