About four years ago I met Lupita in Mexico while I was working as the host of a tv show produced in Mexico City. Two weeks before returning home to Miami I saw her at a pet shop and couldn’t stop thinking of her. There was something special about her personality, even though she was shy and scared; it was not planned, but destiny.

Born in Mexico, from the first moment I know that her beauty was unique and different, and we’ve been inseparable since then. While in Miami looking for a groom we met Arnie, the owner of D’LUXE DOG PET CONCIERGE & BOUTIQUE, who is also one of the most talented designers of dog clothing. We immediately connected and he thought Lupita was not only beautiful, but a very lovable sweet dog.

In months she proved to be everything he thought. Lupita was “special”: Funny, joyful, playful, loving and beautiful. And, she inspired Arnie into a great idea; to create a unique collection of his luxurious line of handmade, hand-embroidered dog necklaces and harnesses. They combine designs with semi-precious stones, Swarovski crystals and eclectic ornaments to form special pieces for your puppy, and for you!

As a result, Arnie developed the “South of the Border, Lupita with Love” exclusive collection. It’s designed with Lupita as Arnie’s muse, and includes vibrant and colorful designs, and transports us to the birthy country of Lupi, Mexico!

Adorned with an assortment of semi-precious stones such as turquoise and mother of pearl, Swarovski details and diverse ornaments, this collection brings back memories of various cities. Whether it’s the designs of Guadalajara, Cancun, Puerto Vallarta, Tijuana or Acapulco, they won’t want to miss a “visit” by way of a harness, half harness or collar from D”LUXE DOG!

I hope that both you and your “furry” child will enjoy the joys of South of the Border…

Lupita with Love!
