Here at Willowear, afternoons are a little longer, mornings are warmer and we have the urge to get outside with our best bud – a little longer at the dog park, catching sun at our local café, a hike in the nearby mountains…but those aren’t the only reasons we love spring. We have five more!
- Willow — get it? We love spring and it’s a big part of the reason we named our pup — a spring baby—after one of the earliest trees to announce the season’s arrival. Some of you, dear dog lovers, may still be under several feet of snow but here in California lavender and golden orange blossoms already adorn the banks of freeways and the edges of our favorite dog park. Swoon.

Trails are a little muddy but boy, the air is fresh and Willow is as happy as a dog can be sniffing every inch of the trail, flushing out small creatures, ecstatic with life in general. Wait, that’s every time we go outside. Okay, maybe I’m the one a little happier than usual. That’s the spring effect.
Willowear Spring Bandanas
The selection got us good this year – I mean, check out these vibrant colors that are more fun than doing the funky chicken. This spring Willowear fabrics are pure joy – colors like lime green and pink, sunny yellows and sea blue-greens. Here, take a look for yourself:
We love being in nature and this snippet from Wordsworth does a good job of capturing why we love the outdoors so much — and doesn’t it read like that irrepressible delight in being alive that we see in our furry friends? Happy Spring to you!
Through primrose tufts, in that green bower,
The periwinkle trailed its wreaths;
And ’tis my faith that every flower
Enjoys the air it breathes.
The birds around me hopped and played,
Their thoughts I cannot measure:—
But the least motion which they made
It seemed a thrill of pleasure.
— Excerpt from ‘Lines Written in Early Spring’ by William Wordsworth
