Friday's Friend: Coco Chanel

Coco Chanel is a fun-loving girl who enjoys playing in our dog park and going for walks! This lady is friendly, fun, easy on a leash, loves people, treats, and gives great hugs! Her perfect ears are so bouncy when she runs, it looks like she's trying to take flight! Coco can be a bit wary of new people at first, so we recommend she go to a home with older respectful children, but once she gets to know you, she's a lover! Coco has lived with other dogs successfully in our kennels, so she may even enjoy a new dog friend in her forever home! If you're interested in adopting this adorable lady, please visit our website at

Coco Chanel—Bijoux de Diamants

“My jewels represent an idea, first and foremost! I wanted to cover women with constellations.”. On a grey day in Paris, 1 November, 1932, All Saint’s Day, one could purchase a ticket for 20 francs and view rooms filled with Coco Chanel’s creations of diamond jewelry—celestial gems. Sparkling diamonds juxtaposed against the backdrop of the homeless on the street and unemployment. For a moment, at least, visitors could escape the dark mood of the Depression that had begun at the end of 1929—perhaps their mood was brightened just a bit. Princes, Princesses, and Ambassadors were among approximately 30,000 visitors. As they strolled through the rooms, all were amazed and fascinated by what they were seeing.
