It's still just "Paco"

"I wish I could afford a Paco collar for Indy." ; unless

"Jessie has way more Paco's than I'll ever be able to afford"
Wouldn't it be "Jessie has way more Pacos than I'll ever be able to afford"? Paco's would be possessive. Pacos would be plural.

This is where I would just say "Jessie has way more Paco Collars than I'll ever be able to afford", so I wouldn't have to spend five minutes turning that around in my head.

Possibly I'm over thinking this.

That was my thought, too.
