Tuesday's Treasures: Protecting What's Valuable
Hello, it is me again, Arwen the wonder-dog! I am sorry I didn't post yesterday, but we went shopping and were pretty pooped by the time we got back home from GrandMonna's and GrandDadoo's. We had a great time there and want to thank them for having us!
Yesterday we went to two different pet stores in search of boots and a raincoat for me, but every time we found boots, they were $50 and we never even found my size! The raincoats were also around $50, and mommy and I agreed that if we are going to spend that kind of money, we would like to support an Etsy artisan, not a big faceless corporation. If you know of a reputable store on Etsy that sells dog boots and jackets for medium sized dogs, please let us know in the comments section :)
Thanks to GrandDadoo (he drove), we went to a nice small pet store that was individually owned and we were able to find me a new seat belt! This is called a VestHarness and I like the color, though it does clash with my current collar. Mommy is VERY happy about this new vest as I had outgrown the seat belt I had worn since I was a puppy and both mommy and daddy were very scared of taking me in the car for rides...what if we were in an accident and I got hurt? Mommy said she would never get over that, so now I can safely go on rides (and look fantastic, rooh rooh!).
Another great feature of this harness is that it not only has a nice generous seat belt loop, allowing me to comfortably and safely lie down in the car, is the D-ring which will allow mommy to walk me in the harness instead of my collar! She thinks this may help with my pulling, but, come on, I AM part husky after all, pulling is my job! Still, I think it may be fun to get to walk with a different thing on me, and the VestHarness says it is also a chest protector, so that may be fun to try out! I don't know what I could do that would possibly need a chest protector, but I am sure I can find a way, rah rooh!
Mommy says she has helped to protect what is truly valuable to her, and I have to agree: being a great dog is quite a bit of work and I want to be able to do it for a long time. Now, off to catch that fly that is buzzing around the house....See you soon!
