Collar Time!

I am totally addicted to dog collars! I LOVE them! If I had small dogs, it would probably be doggy clothing. But I don't, and I don't want to pay astronomical prices for custom made clothes for my dogs (not to mention I don't think they'd really care for them that much any how!), so I buy them collars. I figured that I would spend a little time each month talking about one of the collars that I've bought, how it holds up, and just what I think of it in general. Generally when I buy one style of collar I like the dogs to match. So they get a similar design, but in different colors. That sort of thing. I just think it's cute that they sort of match!

Today I wanted to show off the collars that my friend Kennedy made for my guys! She's just starting up her own custom collar business and you can check out her web site at Heffner and Bess are even models on her site!:O) We actually just got these collars on Wed. so the dogs haven't been wearing them too terribly long. However, I think that they should hold up pretty well. The stitching is very sturdy and is a color that totally blends in with fabrics. I really like this because as weird as it may sound, I don't like the thread showing through unless it's part of the design. It can take away from the collar otherwise. Kennedy did a great job with these collars too! While she hasn't been at it for a huge amount of time, the craftsmanship is that of someone who has been doing this for a long time.

The dogs were wearing their collars yesterday while we were hiking. While Heffner doesn't tend to get too crazy on hikes, Bess goes EVERYWHERE! Through bushes, into tight places you wouldn't think she could go, and just generally runs around like a crazy girl. And her collar doesn't have a snag or a scratch!

On a side note, I wanted to let everyone know that I probably won't be updating the blog until Sun. evening. Bess and I head out this afternoon to go to a dog show up in Lynden, WA! Wish us luck and think thoughts of Winners Bitch!!

Thanks for the sales pitch, Lindsay. Anytime your kids want to model anything else, let me know. :)
