skeleton dog breed t-shirts for your inner canine
Picture a sunny Saturday in the park, highs in the 70s, bluegrass on stage, beer, chili, and a steady parade of friends. That was last weekend’s Cabbagetown Chomp & Stomp. The air of festivity turned out to be the perfect t-shirt buying elixir, because we sold more tees than any other event in our short history! Maybe lots of people will be giving Skeledog for the holidays. Either way, it was a blast.
Some of our coolest visitors were the youngsters. Kid sizes are a must for 2010. Thanks to all of you who stopped by our tent on Saturday!
This Saturday is the annual Cabbagetown Chomp & Stomp festival! Join us on Saturday for the chili cookoff, bluegrass stage and neighborhood shenanigans. We’ll be in the artist’s market, reminding everyone that holidays are upon us and everyone loves a quirky dog t-shirt. See you there!
The Dog-n-Jog was a blast! We got to Piedmont Park before sunrise on Saturday to set up before the canine chaos commenced. All the 4-legged participants received a brown Skeledog bandana, including these two champs.
We made some new friends, sold some t-shirts, took breed requests and most importantly, raised a ton of cash and awareness for Canine Assistants. $5 from the sale of each shirt went to support this great organization.
Here’s our new buddy, Mister Bigs. Hope we’ll see him and all the lovely racers at this event next fall!
Lace up your running shoes on and join us tomorrow, bright and early, in Piedmont Park for the Atlanta Dog Jog! Skeledog is thrilled to be a sponsor of this year’s event. We’ll be there cheering for both the 2 and 4-legged participants!
We are excited to announce that Skeledog is a presenting sponsor for the upcoming 23rd Annual Atlanta Dog Jog! The orthopedic veterinarians who organize this event fell in love with our skeletized creations and we were thrilled to collaborate on an original skeledog doggie bandana for the race.
The race is run in Piedmont Park on Saturday, October 24. All proceeds benefit Canine Assistants, a great organization that trains dogs for disabled kids and adults. You can sign up to run with your canine champ here. Or just join us for a dog-watching in the park.
Join us at our favorite eastside coffee shop Park Grounds this Sunday, 8/2 for “What’s the Buzz,” their monthly celebration of local pet goodness. We’ll be setting up our skeletent in their dog park from 10-2. Between the fine Counter Culture brews and the off-the-leash dog park, we’ll all be hyper to see you there!
We have almost recovered from our marathon roadtrip to Brooklyn for the Renegade Craft Fair, and the blogs are confirming that all that driving was well worth it. Not only did we get featured on the Renegade Flickr site, we got a mention on American Craft magazine’s blog! This one called us a highlight of the festival.
As usual, we made lots of new friends, both human and canine, and collected votes and inspiration for our next litter of skelepups. This German Shorthair Pointer would look sharp in an x-ray point.
These folks loved Porties before Porties were presidential.
The spectacular weather and Williamsburg location made this one of our most successful festivals so far. Thanks to everyone who came by our booth last weekend to share a story about their favorite breeds! We can’t think of a better way to start our summer.
We’re on our way to McCarren Park, baby! On June 6th and 7th, Skeledog will be slinging shirts from lucky booth #14. Meanwhile, we are ferociously preparing to debut our 3 newest pups: the Boston Terrier, Pug and Boxer!
If you’re any where near Brooklyn, you don’t want to miss the Renegade Craft Fair. Seriously. I loved shopping at this festival long before we conceived of printing dog skeletons on t-shirts. Hope to see you and all your furry friends in attendance!
I know it’s been quiet lately in Skeledogland… we’ve been hunkered down, drawing new dogs, chatting up retailers and plotting our strategy for the festival season (i.e. t-shirt season!). Well, Spring has officially sprung here in Atlanta and yesterday we got the good news that we’ve been accepted as a vendor in the Brooklyn Renegade Craft Fair!
This is a humongous, juried festival featuring hundreds of clever, homegrown brands. The event takes place on June 6th and 7th in McCarren Park (which is sweet, because when we lived in Brooklyn, we spent lots of time in that park, jealously watching other people’s dogs frolic as we debated the virtues of each breed. aw.)
Renegade Chicago was a blast, so we’re thrilled to take part in this crafty blowout. Can’t wait to see you and your furry friends in Brooklyn!

It was another weekend packed with crafty goodness! Hundreds of creative types and holiday shoppers packed the Indie Craft Experience Shopping Spectacular at Ambient + Studio, not far from Skeledog headquarters in Atlanta.
Our tiny booth was right by the DJ and the eggnog. With a steady stream of old and new friends and delighted customers, the whole day felt like a party! And sales were totally making our spirits bright. Let’s just say, lots of good little boys and girls will be finding skeledog tees under the tree this year…
