Bella is a happy-go-lucky pug living an everyday dog’s existence until fate intercedes. When her boy, Zachary Tinkle, starts racing a minicup stock car, the trajectory of her life changes.

It starts with just taking photos of her in a car and suit that matches Zachary’s race car. Then, Bella gets to go to the racetrack by happenstance.

Traveling to the race track so that she can greet fans along with garnering attention and belly rubs becomes one of her favorite things to do.

Word gets out about Bella while Zachary’s racing career grows to his racing a full size late model race car. Magazines feature Bella and Zachary’s relationship. She has cameo appearances in books. And, there were hero cards featuring her and Zachary.

Listen to Bella tell her story of how she has become known as the racing ‘Pit Pet Fashionista’ in this delightful book written from a pug point of view.

About the Author

Laurren Darr has been 'owned' by pugs since her first pug rescue of White Pines Tuttie when she was just six years old. Tuttie had never been out of a cage or even uttered a bark. She was the joy of Laurren's life until she left this world at the age of 15 (human years, of course!). This silly pug would let Laurren dress her, put clippy earrings on her, and even put lipstick on her. They'd spend hours tootling around the neighborhood dressed in their Sunday best, which is why Tuttie served as the inspiration for the launch of the Pet Fashion Guild over thirty years later. She understands the deep roots and connections created between humans and animals through fashion because of this kinship. Her book, "Lipstick On A Pug," won the Dog Writers Association Maxwell Medallion for 2015 Children's Book of the Year. Her publishing imprint, Left Paw Press, has printed numerous books on pet fashion, pug children's, medical, racing, and coloring. "PugDala Coloring Book," a mindfulness coloring book also won a Maxwell Medallion. In 2013, Laurren combined her marketing experience and lifelong love of pet fashionology to launch the Pet Fashion Guild, an organization created to provide educational materials and tools for pet fashion professionals. She's been named a "Paw-er Woman" by Fidose of Reality blog and was a 2015 & 16 finalist for Pet Industry Woman of the Year. In 2018, Pet Age named her a Woman of Influence. Laurren earned her pet fashion certification from Fashion Institute of Technology (FIT) in New York City in 2015. Laurren's busy Indianapolis-area home is filled with her husband, her race car driving son (Zachary Tinkle), and a fabulously fashionable pug named Bella.
