I'm a little over-due for them. My pretty, pretty little dog. ZOMG! Sumthin's in there, mom! Open sesame! Help, pls? Guys - I put Middie's big leather collar on loose for comfort, since it's pretty stiff, and the choke chain is back-up in case he slipped it. I was supervising the whole time, though, and everything was fine. The collars I usually use on the tie-out were in the wash, and I didn't have a martingale that I minded getting filthy at the time. Just wanted to explain the.. odd.. choice of collars for him, lol.
