I’ve got three dogs and, although we walk through woods at the back of our garden so they are rarely on a lead, I like them to wear a collar with an I.D. tag just in case. They are micro-chipped but, if they were to get lost, not everybody would bother to take them to the vets and have them scanned whereas they might just phone a number.
I’m always buying new collars for them so I thought I’d have a go at making my own. I ordered all the hardware and spent ages choosing grosgrain ribbon to make the webbing look pretty. This is my first attempt and Flo graciously agreed to be the model on this occasion.. This was a very brief moment of stillness – I chose that ribbon with her in mind.
What do you think? I might start making these, along with my dog bandanas, to help raise funds for the Dog Rescue Carcassonne Group here in France.
Here are some Chelsea Football Club supporters who were recipients of specially requested dog bandanas for Christmas.
I wonder whether they know they support Chelsea?
And not to be too biased towards dogs – after all, I do have cats too, I took this photo of my big pyjama case cat, Henry, avidly watching a programme about cats. I thought animals couldn’t recognise stuff like that but he definitely did.
Please excuse the proliferation of gaming gubbins, wires, speakers, remotes, etc. Nothing to do with me. I only know how to work the telly although, since they moved the satellite, we have to do all sorts of twisty turny technical things to receive t.v. transmissions so I had to get a bit more tech savvy quickly if I wanted to watch Downton Abbey and Broadchurch.
