Hey, who're you calling tough? http://i3.photobucket.com/albums/y65/spanaval/Dogs/Pan Panda.jpg

Optical illusion! And so not-tough.

You have my cousin's little daughter and The Museum of Natural History to thank for that.

It doesn't have quite the same effect when Khan has it on

Maybe it IS a small dog thing.

Nah, Janet has proven that. I would agree that it's a nekkid dog thing more than a size issue. But that's no excuse for boring leashes.
I was starting to think that. The purple gingham (Item # ZW967 at PetEdge) or polka dog ( Item # ZA270) for Pan, and blue or black pawprints (Item # ZA885) for Khan.

See - not a small dog thing.
I do think that it's an owner thing. If all my dogs ever did was sleep on the couch and take walks in the neighborhood, they'd probably have fewer choices of collars and leashes. But I* feel the need to have them look their best (as if they ever could *not) at agility trials. Same might be true if we went to a dog park.

I think something in a zebra print would be the obvious first choice for basics. Animal prints are IN this year, dontcha know?

But with the basic black and white that Pan has working for her, something in a bright color would also be very nice.

Maybe I should show you what Khan did to his harness yesterday. It had rained earlier in the day, and there was one slushy spot, where the dogs had been digging earlier. He decided that it was the perfect spot for a good game of bitey face, and lay himself down in the muck and rolled around. By the time he was done, the slushy spot was dry.

Ah, Khan. I'm thinking something in a jewel-tone. Same colors that look best on Spenser.

Maybe not the same effect, but he still makes a darn good-looking bear!

Sassy can go outside, down the steps off the deck and onto the sidewalk, change her mind and come back up and inside and have mud on her back. And if there should happen to be a robin somewhere in the lawn, she won't be happy until she has raced over every single square inch of it making sure that all is clear. That will insure that she has not missed a single wet or muddy spot. Even if you didn't think there were any.

Spenser will tippy-toe down onto the sidewalk, make his way very carefully out the driveway and up the road to get the mail with DH. When he returns his feet will be dry - even if it's raining outside. Only if Sassy sounds like she desperately needs his help subduing the invaders in our yard will he step onto the grass. (But then, he's as willing as she is to wade right into the mud.)
And perhaps this is why they need new collars.

new collars - it's been almost a year since I bought any

Oh my! Harriet has briefly worn a nylon martingale after baths, until she's completely dry, but other than that, she has worn the same flat leather collar since I got her. Please don't let her know that she should have a new one every year!

Maui and Cali don't wear collars except when they were just tiny tots of 1 1/2 to 4 pounds. they had to wear one because I loved to hear the little bell ring as they ran (they wore cat collars). But, once everyone got use to watching where they step and the dogs got bigger, they don't even have one. Do most dogs wear one all the time at home?
