Collars

Th Ao4 had a little discussion last week about their collars. Coincidentally, I've been in the market for some new collars for the Dogs.

All of my Dogs wear martingale style collars because I've seen one too many dogs slip right out of a flat collar. This makes it impossible, yet can't choke them. And I really like Lupine collars because they really hold up. Penny's collar is 3 years old & looks brand new. But, they are really stiff & it's a giant PITA getting Lola out of her collar every morning now that she's being crated again.

This is Sherman's current collection of collars: The Wolf collar is the most fitting as Sherman is really a Wolf. He has a turtle one for summer when Sherman is slow as a turtle, a black gold collar he wears during football season & a very manly silver collar that just looks good with black fur.


It's almost summer...that means it's Turtle Time!!


Lola's collars are a bit more feminine...she usually sports pastels or purple. The one on the right with the little daisies on it is my favorite but it's trashed.



Right now she's wearing Ruby Cube (sounds like Ruby Blue!)



And poor Penny, I love her in red but all the collars she has are so masculine. I'm in the process of trying to fem her up a bit.



Cool print, but she looks like a boy.

I found a great site that makes really cool collars, Retro Pet and am going to order Lola & Penny new ones soon. Anyone wanna help me out & throw out a vote for a fem collar for Penny? I'm thinking You Look Fabulous , Vintage Mod BOHO, or Groovy Baby.

Any other online stores I should check out???

I like the You Look Fabulous one but they all look great. I was hoping to get a turtle collar like yours but no luck yet. I'm stuck with my purple collar. I don't think it is masculine enough. I think looking online might even get me a better collar.

Ruby Bleu said...

OMDog...I need to get me a Ruby Cube collar!!! I have a collar and a harness from Retro-Pet. They are very cool and my Mom likes them because they are machine washable and hold up nicely. I think Penny would look fabulous in You Look Fabulous!!!

ohhh....makes me want to do more collar shopping! Lots of Licks, Ruby

We like Sweet Paradise (elegant, Penny always looks elegant) and Mocha Dahlias (subtle for Penny's colouring).

OK then, but we would go for Grooovy Bab- again, think the colours look that bit softer.

Wow, collar colour analysis....!

Oh my Penny needs the you look fab one.

Simba said...

Thats a lot of collars. I don't wear collars very often, because I pretend they are choking me and start making awful noises until Mummy takes is off. So I wear a harness.

We're voting for You Look Fabulous but if you need a tie-breaker, Groovy Baby is our second choice.

Pappy's Fella said...

I was going to say Vintage Mod BOHO with You Look Fabulous as a close second, but the quorum seems to be the latter. Pappy's collar is a wee bit girly, so I may have to do a little shopping meself.

I love "You Look Fabulous." I might have to get one for Sophie.

I'm a bit behind on your blog, so excuse my tardy response to your celebrity post, but Lola is so much better looking than Paris Hilton, and I'll bet she's a hundred times smarter too!

Nugget said...

Nice collars! I have just realized that I been neglected! Mum has had me in the same old ratty collar since she adopted me. I think we are going to have to talk!

Asta said...

Hi, so nice to meet all of you gorgeous doggies, thanks for coming to visit, next time leave your pix ok?
As far as the collar, I like You Kook Fabulous, but I think Penny's coloring would be best with the bluey one(I don't remember the name) They're all pretty cool.
Smoochie kisses

Ooooo...I love Retro Pet collars. I'm making my Mom buy some for me! I think that Penny would look cute in the Vintage Mod collar. Mom likes that one too!

PreciOus said...

I've never had any collar coz I have a habit of pulling my humans along real hard. Thus, sista thinks collars are no-no for me.

Snuggle,

Oh my gosh! My girl was going to order me a collar from there and she picked out the SAME EXACT THREE that you did!!! She actually ended up getting me one from somewhere else, but I'm still hoping....

Tadpole said...

I don't wear collars (unless I have to be on a leash). But I like the Vintage Mod BOHO one for Penny. :-)
