only kidding! the idea for this crazy place came from Sam and Ollie (we'll get back to that in a minute). The two of us, Blair and Alesha, moved to Austin the summer of 2003. We grew up in Dallas and have been best friends for 20+ years. We moved here on a whim. At the time, we were living in Phoenix, found ourselves both single at the same time, and wanted somewhere cooler (temp) and cooler (more fun) to live. Anyway we picked Austin because it's the greatest place on earth and because it's closer to our families. So happily living in Austin, we realized that we needed jobs. That's when Sam and Ollie came to our aid. Sam and Ollie are Blair's 2 long haired 12-year-old dogs (or children, if you will). They needed bath's and short summer hair do's. Blair called around and found out it would be over $100 to get them both done. If she could do it herself she would.....LIGHT BULB! So that's how Dirty Dog came to be.
