Ruffy the riveter  3

When you're fabulous, you laugh when people say "in" or "out" of style, because you know that you are the style maker. Your look is timeless, so you don't need to keep up with the fashion trends. It's not something you do, not something you wear, it's just who you are!

But the line between flop and fabulous can be an out-of-place doggy hair or an askew cat whisker. Thanks to these photo submissions into Union Plus' Pet Photo Contest (hurry, the fun ends August 8) from union members, here is a quick Ruffy-approved cheat sheet on the rules to looking remarkable.



Don't forget that union members keep pets fabulous from head to tail by saving 10% on pet insurance, 25% on veterinary services and 10% on pet food, toys and other supplies.
