Hello Beautiful Friends and happy Friday!
I love getting to know all different people and the roles they play in our horse show world. I get to meet amazing people with interesting lives and stories to tell. Today I am putting the spotlight on Mona Straub of Just Fur Fun. I met Mona through being at WEF and also by way of Sarah Rowen at Fab Finds by Sarah. The two of them are located next to each other on Hunter Hill at WEF. As some of you may know, I write the blog for Sarah’s boutique. When she asked me to feature Mona on her blog I was all in! I thought I’d share her story and information here on FTLOATF as well. It can often be so much more meaningful to support a business when you understand and know the great people behind them!
Mona Straub is the founder, designer and brains behind Just Fur Fun®. After an extensive career in sales and marketing for Fortune 500 companies, she switched gears and redirected her life to another path; one that would fulfill her love of animals and utilize her business savvy. Always looking for ways to express herself when just jewelry alone wouldn’t do, she came up with the idea to dress-up her dogs, cats, and horses in something different, yet elegant, that would be an expression of her…and Just Fur Fun® was born! Her first creation was the browband and from there she expanded into dogs and cats. Coming from an equestrian background and attending horse shows, Mona realized there was a very important and untapped space in serving the many dogs that go hand in hand with the horse show life. Mona and her husband have 5 rescue dogs – all dachshunds: Nathan, Shayna, Jonah, Melanie, & Roxy. They also have 5 cats that they have taken into their family: Shadow, Moochie, Sandy, Rocky, and Devin!
