Of course when we saw a display of Doggles at Paws On the Sand in Lincoln City, we knew that we needed some to add to Athena's wardrobe. After a quick fitting session in the store, we picked out a pair and Athena started sporting them as soon as we hit the beach. As a side note, I was rooting for a hot pink pair like Miss M, but B won the battle and we went with the always matching 'black.'
We love Doggles because they are great for protecting sensitive doggy eyes from the bright sun, keeping sand out of eyes, as well as acting as goggles while swimming in the ocean. Doggles actually contain 100% UV protection, because just like humans, dogs need eye protection from the sun too. I even tried on Athena's Doggles to see how dark they are. They are very comparable to human sunglasses and in no way hindered my vision.
Although the Doggles are equipped with a flexible padded rubber frame that fit snuggly to Athena's face, she still managed to get a bit of sand inside of them. We made sure to continuously check her Doggles to ensure that she still had full vision.
While out on the beach I was amazed at how many people approached us just because Athena was wearing Doggles and no longer looked "scary." Because really, who couldn't resist a dog wearing Doggles? They are HILARIOUS! Multiple people wanted to take Athena's picture and some even wanted her to pose for pictures with their children. I'm telling you...Doggles make a pit bull FAMOUS!
