My little petunia thinks it’s cool to tear stuff to shreds.
I fell in love with that purple sparkly $25 collar. Within two days of wearing it, she had torn off and eaten the end of it. Awesome, right?
Almost as awesome as when she popped my Bender Ball and the replacement ball I bought online.
Pardon me while I commence my calming breathing exercises.
So, Chloe sported a ghetto collar for a good 8 months or so. Once I finally felt like dropping some more money on a new one, I turned to Etsy.
I’m kind of picky when it comes to collars for Chloe. I had enough people stopping me on the road telling me “he is a beautiful dog” or asking what “his name is” as it was, and that was with a purple sparkly collar.
Really? How many blonde girls do you know who would put purple sparkles on a boy dog? I always smile nicely and tell them “her name is Chloe.”
Chloe is also the prissiest girl you’ll ever meet. She will not be sporting camo any time soon. Therefore, I needed a girly collar.
I found myself searching for pretty yellow/pink collars. I figured she couldn’t be mistaken for a boy in such Springy, girly colors. Then I found a collar I kindasorta adored at Dog Collars Etc.
Wait for it….
How adorable is that? If you know me well, you know I like peacocks almost as much as I like sparkles.
So, now my dog matches my living room.
You don’t have to tell me. I know I’m really, really cool.
Chloe sure seems to like it, though. We have had zero shredding attempts. It’s the little victories.
Elizabeth of Dog Collars Etc. couldn’t have been more helpful in my collar mission. She loves to sew and sees a collar in every fabric she purchases. Elizabeth makes make dog collars, clothes, pet beds, and quilts and
has sold collars all over the world. I just might be asking her for fabric to cover Chloe’s favorite
old papazan cushion dog bed…
Her most exciting client to date includes the narrator of “Swamp People” on the History Channel. It, of course, had Gators on it. How awesome is that?
Elizabeth is happy to search for fabrics to make specific collars for her buyers. I highly recommend her beautiful, high-quality handiwork. So, if you have a collar idea in mind, shoot her a message! Just tell her the peacock freak sent you.
