My love of Coach

The designer brand and the dog…

For whatever reason, Coach is my design brand of choice. I love Coach – I love their purses, shoes, clothes, umbrellas…you get the idea. I, clearly, don’t buy everything that I like of theirs, but I have collected a few precious items over the years. This includes a Coach collar for my dog, who is in fact named “Coach.”

Now, before you go calling the crazy police, I would like to note that I inherited this dog from a friend who liked Coach even more than I do (she even worked for the company for a while for the discount) and she named the dog after her favorite purse brand. The name totally fits her (look at that face!) and she is a very sweet dog.


My dog is a purebred Pomeranian and she just loves everyone she meets. She loves to jump on laps and have her tummy rubbed (typical dog) and is always excited to see us when we come home. She is very protective over my stepson, and whenever he is staying at our house she insists on sleeping in his room. Coach is now five years old (people years) and makes me smile every day. I would definitely keep her over my Coach purses any day.

Do you have a designer dog like me? Or, do you love a designer? Or dog? I would be interested to hear your thoughts!

My name is Melina Young and I am the director of marketing at Verity Credit Union. I love everything to do with marketing, advertising, public relations and social media – especially all the research that goes into making a product or service really work for our members and making sure the right people hear about it. In addition to my time spent marketing, I have a blog and write about celiac disease, which I was diagnosed with in 2010. Basically, I can’t eat any of those foods we all love that are made with wheat, barley or rye.

I have also recently started running and completed my first 5k in 2011. Some people may not know that I used to do a lot of acting, dancing and singing in my life. I was in a Nike commercial with Gary Payton in junior high (if anyone ever finds the footage please send it my way!) and I used to compete as an opera singer in high school. I almost majored in musical theater in college, but I’m very glad with my decision to study marketing!

    Love it! I have a similar obsession with art and anything artsy and creative and the like so naturally, when I picked out my lil’ Shorkie I named him Renoir. His brother is Gizmo and their names fit their personalities well! They love people and of course, are spoiled rotten 😉
