Ah, Maxwell. . .
He was Bonnie’s first pup and started it all!
A pure joy and so much fun it wasn’t long until the family grew . . .
Molly, Molly, Molly!
A sweet little girl to love…but Bonnie’s heart still had more to give
although, the breeder was partially responsible for what happened next … and that would be Milo.
Milo . . .
Yep, the breeder was retiring. So Bonnie decided to make what was thought to be one final leap and bring home Milo!
Milo was a mere 6 months old at the time the boutique was opening.
And so the three little Yorkies became the namesake of Bonnie’s dream pet boutique!
But the story doesn’t end there…
Pipsqueak . . .
Bonnie fell in love, yet again, this time with Lili, the toy poodle of a loyal customer.
Bonnie connected with Lili’s breeder and was blessed with Pipsqueak. Pippy, a four pound cream toy poodle, was a wonderful addition & couldn’t be more loved by his human parents & canine siblings.
BTW, Lili’s human mom, MJ, is now part of the Maxwell & Molly’s Family and manages the Hardyston store.
. . . And finally Olive!
Unexpected and unplanned, Olive became part of the family through the generosity of a family looking for a loving home for a little girl traumatized by the premature separation from her mother and a long mid-winter airline flight from Texas.
The perky and playful Chihuahua was meant to be part of the family as she shares Molly’s birthday and is affectionately called “Olly”.
About the Cats, Peggy & Gabby…
Following the untimely death in May of 1999 of Bonnie & Rick’s youngest child, Gregg Alan, the mother of one of Gregg’s best buddies, delivered two abandoned kittens to the Bitondo home.
They were aptly named . . . Peggy – Gregg’s older sister would dress her brother in girl’s clothes and affectionately called him Peggy. GABby – Gregg’s initials.
Peggy & Gabby are a special part of the family and brave the constant taunting of their canine siblings.
Tasha and Doodle
The Mother ~ Daughter Duo
Brianne so lovingly has nicknamed her Monsters. Tasha, a stray rescued from the streets of Camden NJ, was thought to have been spayed when adopted…but SURPRISE! Only 5 days after bringing her home, she gave birth to a litter of adorable puppies! Although a puppy was not part of the original plan, Brianne just couldn’t part with them all! Now Tasha and Doodle are inseperable & proudly represent the bigger fur babies that the Closet serves! They can be found most days at the Closet in Newton, living the good life and modeling their newest Closet bling!
Lili, Gigi, and Deliliah
