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.

In the middle of training Tango, letting Booker in on the secrets of happy puppyhood, and trying to stay warm this winter, we're redoing our website, www.gollygear.com. The shopping cart that we'd been using successfully for many years is sadly out of date with modules breaking down, and the update from this company (which we spent tons of money and time on) is worse than useless for us. So we decided to switch shopping carts, and that entailed redoing the website. Recropping all the pictures. Copying all the product descriptions. And tags. Figuring out this program's subproduct feature, and lots of other features. Purchasing the tech support package which allows me to update the program. (And that's a hefty annual fee.) And now I'm in a waiting mode for the tech guy at the hosting company to install on the server the crucial software that will allow us to process credit card charges. Hopefully next week.... - 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 5-year-old Brussels Griffon who got off to a bit of a rough start, but is rapidly becoming a wonderful companion and agility dog, with his Masters Standard and Novice Jumpers titles, and Booker, 2-year-old Boston Terrier just starting his adventure. Hope has Teddy a 4-year-old fawn Frenchie with attitude and Open Standard and Jumpers titles; and Torque, a brand-new Frenchie baby.
Golly Gear is named for Fran's Brussels Griffon, Golly - who was a discriminating judge of all things dog throughout her life.
