Actress Bo Dereck is blessed with enduring good looks and a film career that has spanned the decades. Almost 20 years after she appeared in “10” she is still considered one of the most beautiful women in the world. The American icon withdrew from Hollywood for several years but was not forgotten. She resurfaced to the delight of men (and women) of all ages in a series of films in the 1990s.
Today, Dereck is counting her blessings and passing them along as well. She has spent the last four years developing a new line of pet care products called Bless The Beasts which was released this October and is available in Petco stores across the country.
“To me the phrase “man’s best friend” is no exaggeration,” says Dereck. “Over the years, my dogs have truly provided me with happiness, love and companionship. In return for giving their best, I wanted to give the my best.”
Dereck ample experience with pet care – she has nine dogs and 22 horses to groom. Bless the Beasts includes an array of shampoos, conditioners, pomades, and fragrances she uses on her own beloved pets. “A goal of mine has been to keep my dogs clean enough to sleep on the bed with me, and now they can,” she says.
Dereck’s blessings extend to more than just the lucky dogs who will be treated to her line of special care. Canine Companions for Independence, an organization that trains dogs to assist those with disabilities, receives a portion of all sales from Bless the Beasts. “I wanted to create something special, not only in terms of products but also in a contribution to the world we live in,” she says.
