    I did see it, and thought it looked nice on her. :) May I ask why you didn't like it? I can return it for a refund if it doesn't look good on Nola, so I'm not too worried.

    It's a really bulky harness. Bayleigh's very petite. She's exactly 10 pounds. It was just too big for her. On his site it says 10-25 pound dogs but I think it's best suited for a dog bigger even though it would also fit a dog smaller than Bayleigh. The girl I sold my harness to has a 25 pound Chihuahua mix (for lack of a better description). It looks great on that dog.

    Hm....:( Nola's 9lbs. But she's not super dainty looking; lots of muscle and a deep chest. I hope it looks good on her! It was the only leather harness I could find I liked the look of.

    I have a whole bin full of "dog stuff." The things that make it into the "everyday bin" for each dog are: a leather collar with a Boomerang tag, Premier harness, White Pine leash, Flexi, Roadie, and biothane collar. Those are the things that get used on an almost daily basis.

    The leather collars I have are just Circle T from Fleet Farm.

    Just two. He only wears them when we're in the yard, so now point in spending a bunch of money on them. He has the one we got him when he was a puppy (his first collar) and that still fits. It has a metal buckle which made his neck red and irritated so it's used for his tie out. Then he has a Bruins collar from PetSmart that my roommates got me for my birthday. Luckily enough his regular collar broke the day I brought the Bruins collar home, so it's his regular now. We might get him a new collar once the hockey season is over though. This one keeps loosening on its own and my parents don't seem to care enough to tighten it.

    Probably too many, but I've gotten over my rabid collar obsession. With the exception of Revy the no-collar wonder dog, every dog has a Paco collar and a slip/martingale of some kind. The two adult dobes have necktechs, and all three dobes have fursavers.

    They wear their Pacos every day. I don't really feel the urge to switch up their "wardrobe" anymore.

    Artimis has his one from www.rushtotug.com It has lime green fleece lioned on the inside, outside has black ribbon with "Art of War" sewn on it in orange and red. I love it, it looks good on him and doesn't rub his neck. ^_^

    Talon technically doesn't have any collars of his own. He wears Art's old collar that has been handed down to him. It was donated to us from Ella'sLead when we were really short on money and Art's collar randomly crapped out on us. It looks great on Artimis and on Talon and I love it sooo sooo sooo much! I'm getting ready to order Talon his own adult collar, and I'm 100% sure it's comming from Ellaslead as well ^_^

    They also both have their ComfortFlex harnesses, which is what their go to is as it's easy to put on and take off and comfy. ^_^ Collars are only worn when I feel like they may need their tags on just in case. Like going to a disc dog event or where they may be offleash.

    He's down visiting her in Southern California right now (for a dog show), and she just sent me this picture of what he's wearing. :)

    Every one has one with tags they wear only when out, and they're all plain and cheap. I'm completely ambivalent about collars. I see plenty that are cute, but I have no interest in getting the dogs more than plain ones for tags.

    Way too many and sadly there are still more that I want. Have a lot of leads too.

    I probably have somewhere between 60-70 collars I'm guessing. Need to do an official count at some point. Majority of those collars are Cricket's. Bamm probably has maybe 10 and Joey probably has maybe 10 and the rest are Cricket's. I think I may have problems. Majority of my collars are premier martingale in numerous colors and plain so if you don't count those then my number is a tad bit smaller.

    Suzie has one
    Jack has two collars and a harness. He actually has a pretty nice collar, it's leather and looks pretty good. If I get anymore collars it would be for him because you can actually see them

    He has one but he never wears it. He has two harnesses but he only wears the one. He generally wears it all day until night time and then I take it off. Its ugly and muddy coloured but it was only 8 dollars and he really likes the fit of it. Only harness he hasn't laid down for me to put on and shrink up into a ball.

    Bailey has two. Well, three including the one she came with.... which I only keep for sentitmantal reasons :p But they're both rolled leather colors. One is dark brown and the other is a rich red color (which is what she's wearing now)

    Maddie has 234567876543234567, which is probably not an exaggeration :rofl1: No, but seriously, she had so many that I put a ton of nylon and fabric collars in gallon sized zip lock baggies and I donated them. To 2 different shelters and 1 rescue :eek:
    I used to keep them because I'd say I'd rotate them. And I did occasionally rotate, but more often than not I didn't, I just bought more new ones :eek:

    So now I rotate between a couple really nice leather colors. She wears her white mcstolly on special occasions. And she wears a turquoise and brown queenie everyday

    Too many!! But most of them are just cheap pet store nylon collars that I bought prior to discovering online shopping. Most of them belong to past dogs and I don't even use them anymore, but I can't get rid of them either because what if i want to use them one day? Pretty stupid really, because I likely won't lol.

    My adult dogs all have pretty rolled leather collars from Quillin Leather and a Paco each and they also all have a chain/buckle martingale each. Oh, and I have three biothane collars for swimming from Gun Dog Supply that I bought last summer. Keira and Journey share the purple one if they're not both going out at once. And all of the girls have a plain nylon collar each with their ID embroidered on (Ripley had one too but outgrew his). Dance also has a tag collar from Karma Collars that I do like, but it's not my favourite (the name plate isn't engraved very deeply).

    I used to be a major collar addict, but not so much anymore. They do all have like 4-5 each and that's all they need and I do use them all regularly for different things. I don't often get any desire for new collars anymore now that I have a few that I really like.

    Let's see... excluding Quinn's puppy collars (which I keep because they're cute), she has

    1 Braid-a-roo tag collar that she wears all the time
    3 Ella's Lead collars
    2 Collarmania collars
    1 Collar Shop martingale
    1 Lupine martingale
    1 damask print - can't remember brand
    1 Browning biothane collar
    1 Weaver leather collar
    1 Rogz nylon collar

    I think that's it - I may be forgetting one or two. But assuming I got all of them, that's 12 collars for one dog.

    Leashes I am slightly better with - 2 Pacos, 1 Weaver, 4 nylons, and 2 slips. Total 9. Oh, and two long lines. I only use my leather ones or the long lines - the nylon ones I all got free (or at least <$2) and I only use when my leash is going to get wet/dirty. And I have one brand new in a consignment shop, but since I don't want it I don't count it!

    She has two harnesses (one Kong, one Hurtta).

    ...I don't know...

    There is a box in the closet, and a few more hanging up in various places around the house. One is from EL, and I made all the rest.
