Sportin' some serious Bling!

Tinkerbell, Oscar and Tucker: Our mom needs to tell you all something very important so we are letting her use the compute today. Take it away mom!

Mom: Thanks guys! I appreciate your kindness.

Hi everyone! I have something the share with you. I am the type of person that when I find a great deal or a good thing, I call everyone I know and tell them about it. Today, is one of those days.

Plume Tail, Special S, & the Almost Border Collie (also known as Shiner, Qwill and Trophey) are fellow dog bloggers. They are pretty cool doggies who also have a very talented mom.

Alexis, their mom, is the owner of Love of Qwill, an etsy shop. She custom makes dog collars for any sized neck and are available in three different types - and you pick the fabric! She makes the classic Buckle Collar, the Martingale collar (also known as a greyhound collar) which has limited slip to prevent the dog from escaping, and the Streamline collar, which is a hybrid of the traditional buckle collar and the Martingale collar and is adjustable to slip over the dogs head, onto the neck to be adjusted.

I asked Alexis to make a collar to fit my dachshund Oscar. I gave her free reign on fabric choice (just keeping in mind that he is a boy). The only stipulation I had was that I have a hard time seeing him at night since he is a dark furred dog and that I would want a collar that would help me see him in the dark.

Here is his new collar!

What a handsome dude!
(even if he is eating rabbit poo in this picture)

I am so pleased with his new collar! The prices are just right, the collar is well stitched and it seems pretty indistructable and the fabric choice was perfect! The green is just bright enough for me to be able to keep track of him when we are outside at night.

Stop over and meet the trio of Shiner, Qwill and Trophey. Check out their blog today because they are having a special give-a-way! Most importantly, support a fellow dog-blogger! You will be so glad that you did!

Hi Oscar, Tinkerbell, and Tucker,
Gosh, Oscar must have done a grreat job of getting the rabbit poop out of the yard. It keeps his people from stepping in it!!!
Oscar, you look so sharp in that collar. I am going to make mom go and check them out next.
Butt first some sad news. Our beloved Indians lost the opener to those rascally Tex. Rangers. Hope your Big Red Machine did better. Wiggles and Wags

Whew! All these personalization is getting to me! Dog collars seem to be getting more and more and more varied every single day! But then again, it's a fashion statement and useful accessory all in one. That's a great looking collar on an even more gorgeous dog!
