Dolly Parton officially has something to offer everybody. The country legend offers various lines of merchandise and accessories for sale, in addition to his many movies and his book, Run, Rose, Run. Now even pets can benefit from its creativity.
This week, Parton launched a brand new line of pet accessories and apparel, Doggy Parton.
Launched in partnership with SportsPet Designs, the line features Parton-inspired apparel, accessories, toys and more for dogs. Specific items include dog versions of Parton’s fan t-shirts, dog toys with microphone and guitar, a cowgirl outfit, and even a blonde dog wig, among others.
Many of the articles are inspired by the brand’s social media accounts by Parton’s “dog god”, a French bulldog named Billy the Kid.
Doggy Parton is benefiting a good cause, with a portion of sales proceeds going to Willa B. Farms, a nonprofit animal rescue organization based in Old Hickory, Tenn.
“‘Puppy Love’ was my very first record and 6 decades later my love for pets is stronger than ever,” Parton said. “It inspired me to launch my own line of Doggy Parton clothing, accessories, toys and more with a little ‘Dolly’ twist. A portion of the proceeds will go to Willa B Farms, a shelter where animals in need find endless love Don’t we all need that?
The Doggy Parton line is available at DoggyParton.com and Amazon, with additional retailers to be announced soon.
Parton has been busy filming her upcoming Christmas-themed musical movie late, The Magic Mountain Christmas by Dolly Parton, which will air on NBC this year. The film will star Parton alongside Willie Nelson, Jimmie Allen, Billy Ray Cyrus, Miley Cyrus, Jimmy Fallon and Christian artist Zach Williams.
Filming has already begun at Parton’s Dollywood Park in Pigeon Forge, Tennessee, and Parton and Nelson were seen filming together at the park earlier this summer.
The singer will also release a deluxe version of her Christmas album, A Christmas Holly Dolly, October 14.
