Shopping for dog collars

On a lighter note.. I went online shopping again last night. On eBay. Shocking, huh? I've been looking for a couple of collars for Theo and Cuda for a couple of months now, and I've had a specific design in mind. It turned out to be very difficult to find these collars, even though it's supposed to be a standard collar, but late last night I struck gold and they were even reasonably priced.

Theo has a gorgeous medium brown leather collar with studs, but unfortunately it's a bit to heavy at the buckle. This causes the collar to turn around all the time, and it's annoying. It's also a bit stiff, and a little too long. When we visited Kennel Venjan to meet Cuda for the first time, we borrowed a collar for Theo and it was just perfect. It was soft, light enough to stay in place, and cute! So I decided to buy a couple of these, but I couldn't find them anywhere - until tonight. And the very best ting was the price, because I paid £4.95 a piece - that's about 137,- NOK for two collars and shipping! Since it's faux leather I'm hoping it'll be a tad bit lighter than the one Theo's already got, and the bone charm is so cute! So I ended up with a brown collar for Theo, and a black one for Cuda - and seriously, if they can't use them it's no big loss.

Sometimes I'm glad I can use our dogs as an excuse to go shopping. I mean, expecting mail isn't less exciting when it's for the little ones - one's gotta love Mr. Postman. I also ordered a couple of round ID tags, but I'm afraid they might be a bit too big for these small dogs. I paid $4.50 for two tags included individual engraving, so I'm not expecting them to be of superior quality or anything. I thought they looked cool with a cartoonish paw print in front, and ID tags are always useful.

  1. Smile Godt med en liten “cowboy” strekk Big Smile Klem`s

  2. Else og Arild:
    Ja, det må til iblant.. spesielt når lillebror blir litt i overkant krevende, og bare skal lekeslåss hele tiden. Wink *klem*

  3. Kjempesøtt halsbånd ^^
    Hadde et søtt refleksbånd, med sikring selvfølgelig, til den gamle katta mi som hadde bling på. Fant det hos en vetrinær på Mo, men har ikke funnet et likens siden. Jeg har det enda men det sitter på en kattekosebamse som et minne om henne Smile

  4. Love the collar, it looks very pretty – hope they fit your boys well! Smile And Theo is just adorable as always Grin

  5. Linda:
    Mamma snakka veldig varmt om noen refleksbånd hun hadde fått tilsendt fra familien i USA, og refleks er jo alltid kjekt. Theo har refleks på jakka si, men Cuda må ha på refleksvest om han skal vises i vintermørket.

    Pinch:
    Thank you! I just had to get them – it looked so cute on Theo, so I hope the boys will like them as much as I do. Razz Cuda is probably a bit too small still, but he’s growing fast – and he’s becoming sweeter by the day, he has nearly stopped his annoying biting!

    Theo sends his love and a lick! Wink

  6. Jeg har tagget deg på bloggen min: What’s your makeup story? Smile

  7. Åh, nei det perfekte halsbånd er ikke lett å finne dessverre. Hööks (hooks.no) har hatt noen fine inne, men akkurat DET halsbåndet har jeg kun funnet på petshopgirls og det var et par tusen hakk for dyrt dessverre. Frown Lykke til med shoppingdilla og ikke minst god bedring!

  8. Maja:
    Det er jo ingen sak når man husker på at man har eBay for hånden. Nå bruker ikke småttisene mine halsbånd inne til vanlig, så det er egentlig bare tøv å kjøpe disse til dem – men jeg falt for det søte da. Smile

    Tusen takk for lykkeønskningene! Grin
