Got Tags?

Happy little friday meets little monday.  (This is only the second day of my work week, actually…)  Please pop over to the main Dogs on Thursday blog and read about my two favorite doggy shops at the beach!

I’m afraid there are no cute Gretchen meets ocean photos.  It was just too cold and windy for that, but I did get some adorable shots of the girls playing on the deck, watching the birds and the ocean…

There are more photos, but I’ll share them as time goes on, because while I have your dogged attention, I want to mention another gadget I found at Pet Expectations

See the almost glowing hot pink loop with the tags on it?  That’s a Cetacea Tag-It.  It’s a little nylon loop with a quick-release clasp and a D-ring, to hold the tags.  For owners like us who change collars and harnesses regularly, it’s a blessing, because the tags live on the Tag-It, and we only have to unclip, move, reclip.  I did slip it between the layers on the adjustible portion of each collar, as there were raised stitches.

Both girls are sporting new collars too.  If you’ll recall, the Knight had a fit about Gretchen wearing purple, so Sissy now has the purple collar (in a larger size because Nichole rocks) and Gretchen has a SLIM, hot pink collar, which strangely enough is making her much more tolerant of the collar.

The big yellow tag on each collar is their Home Again microchip number.   (See above for a photo.)   Check out Natalie‘s post later today for information about another program for protecting your pets in an emergency.  I’m looking forward to her post, because I’m undecided about the service…

    Your girls are cute. I think I’ve told you before my kids don’t wear collars – I’m never sure what to do with their rabies tags. g

    I’ve seen those tag holders online and thought they’d be nice. I’d like to remove their tags at night so they don’t make so much noise, but for security reasons I don’t do it. I’m paranoid about them getting lost and not having ID. They would be nice for changing collars though.

    Well, I have to admit that our dogs have one collar each. Sadie has a different one than the one we got her when she was full grown (she was just short of six months old when we got them, Simon was 11.5 mo). Simon has the same collar we got him at the same time. Yeah, it is kind of gross, all this dog hair embedded in it ans stuff. I keep thinking about getting him a new one.
    I take off his old tags whenever he gets a new one, but I just keep adding Sadie’s to her collar. Needless to say, he is fairly quite when he moves around and she jingles everywhere she goes. I know, I’m weird.
    But all that said, it looks like a super-cool idea and I know a few folks I will pass the info on to!

    The top picture just grabs me: looking out, waiting for her chance to go explore the world. I feel a kinship with your little girl on that one! Getting there…

    Sissy matches Abby! 🙂 How cute! I like that Tag-it thing. I need that for Abby who I switch colors more than Jackjack.

    LOVE seeing the girls rock the new collars … and tell Mr Knight that Gretchen looks DARLING in that purple print collar… and to you, I MUST get a copy of that pic! LOVE it! 🙂

    I’m going to have to find some of those tag holders.. at least one for Sophie… very cool!

  13. Robin in VA says:

    Awesome!! I feel like Rudy is going to be weighted down with tags if I keep it up! Love her new collar…aren’t they cute. Sissy looked like she wanted to swim!

  14. Thanks for the info. I want to check that tag thing y out! I also want to pick up Miss Gretchen give her squeeze!

  15. Tina says:

    Neat idea! And tell both your girls how cute they are in pink, although Honey Dew did like the purple! Sissy is tall when she stretches up there isn’t she!

  16. Thanh says:

    Love the tag idea on that collar. I need one of those.

  17. Anita says:

    Cute photos! That Gretchie is a poser, LOL! Now my Sissy Monster is always on the move, hard to get her to stand still for a photo huh? 🙂

    The new collars are cute, and that’s a super idea for the tags!

    Lots of nice doggie pix in the posts before and after this. I like the one of the girls sleeping together and especially like the one of Gretchen standing alone on the deck. I also think you got more snow than we did.
