When jogging down a nearby wooded trail or driving past a sprawling local park, it's not uncommon to spot Bree—a seasoned pet specialist and sitter certified by the National Association of Professional Pet Sitters—with a band of boisterous puppies scampering along behind her. Though the bulk of her services has to do with dog walking, the animal enthusiast pet-sits for creatures of all shapes and sizes, from kittens to iguanas. Bree travels to homes across Anne Arundel and Howard County, picking up canines or popping by to replace food, water, and outdated copies of Dog Fancy while owners are away. The expert caregiver dotes on all pets under her watch with fond attention, generously doling out belly rubs and playfully tossing sticks to keep pets’ spirits high.

The creative director of Flying Colors Apparel couldn't have known that taking a pair of scissors to an oversized basketball jersey would lead him to rub elbows with celebrities while promoting his apparel at the Sundance Film Festival. But that's exactly what happened. According to a 2010 article on Thrillist.com, the idea for Flying Colors' business began when the designer "cut up a Heat jersey, patched elements of it onto a polo shirt, and was bombarded by fans who wanted one." Growing tired of the same-old, ill-fitting sports attire, and was seeking something more original and stylish, the designer decided to fuse his eye for fashion with his zealous team spirit, and Flying Colors a division of Global Fashion Works, LLC was created.
Flying Colors Apparel creations—which were featured in a shopping blog on NBC 6 in 2010—include a signature "fade out" fashion tee and a "collar scholar" polo, whose collar conceals phrases such as "Terrapins," or "GO NAVY". In addition to Canes-themed threads, the company has expanded to include officially licensed collegiate apparel for more than 50 schools such as Virginia Tech, Florida State, the University of Florida, and Baylor.
