    I am in LOVE with Chloe's new collar! I wanted a custom wave theme collar with lots of bling, and it exceeded my expectations!

    First, the model:

    And a better view of the collar!

    I need to get a picture of the collar itself, but I totally forgot to do it before I uploaded my photos.

    I have no words. I just keep saying 'oh my gosh' over and over. :p

    And is that hand-carved blue I see? I really don't think a collar has ever fit a dog so well before. . .

    That. Looks. AWESOME!! I love it! So you're going with a nautical theme now? I saw you asking about starfish conchos? But I guess the ladybugs would throw that off.. lol

    It looks a lot like a cool version of Stan's collar. I love it!

    Stan's collar was the inspiration! I've wanted a carved wave collar, but didnt want Chloe to not be able to wear it often... And then I saw Stan's collar and realized I could do waves with rhinestones. I am in love with his collar!

    Thanks for the comments, everyone! The waves are just painted on, it's not carved at all. I love how they added them, though!

    As for the nautical theme... Well, I do live in Florida :p. Haha. I've wanted an ocean theme for Rory and thought it would be cute to add some sort of themed conchos. The ladybugs go with Emma's nickname of Emma Bug. I'd love to do a black and red collar with little ladybug rivets, but I've never been able to find any.

    Wow! It looks great on her and it looks absolutely beautifully made. I've always wondered how the collars would look on smaller breeds, but I think after seeing these, I'll definitely have to look into getting a custom collar for Cali, although I don't think I'm half as creative as you, by the looks of things. :)

    WOW... just... stunning! I LOVE how it turned out. PERFECT colors for Chloe! She's such a gorgeous dog.

    They're great on small dogs! They're not heavy at all, either, which I like. Some leather collars can be a bit bulkier, or have heavier hardware, etc, but the Paco's are not IMO. Our tan leather from them is the absolute softest though and came that way. He has no problem wearing it all day long. :)

    Thanks, everyone!

    Thanks! I love Paco Collars on small dogs, and they allow you to customize with sizes as well. Their small dog leather is sturdy but lightweight... perfect for little dogs. I feel comfortable with 3/4" width tapered to 1/2" on Rylie, Chloe, and Tucker, but I always stick with 3/8" for Emma since she's so little. None of their collars are bulky or uncomfortable.

    Exactly! I love the tan most as well... it's so soft.
