Happy Thorsday, little friday and thankful thursday! I’ve posted a review of our new Lupine harnesses over on the girls’ blog, but I’m going to continue the Pet Expectations/Lupine love here too. (Be sure to click over to Lupine and wait for the pirate and the basset photo!)
Gretchen's first Lupine 11-2008
I love Lupine. LOVE. The boy dogs chewed each other out of countless rolled leather collars as pups, so when I discovered Lupine and their unconditional guarantee, I was RIGHT THERE. They also have wonderful patterns, styles, etc., so whatever you’re looking for, they have it… now that they’ve added the fab no-pull harness to the line-up. And yes… we’ve tested their guarantee. That cute harness we passed down to Micro? Yeah… Sissy chewed the original off of baby Gretchen the first time she wore it.
Anyway, the new no-pull is the answer to our prayers, so Thankful Thursday is rather covered too… We’re grateful for Jill at Pet Expectations and for Lupine! Isn’t it great when there are fabulous companies that truly care about your pet?
I suppose you’re wondering how Lupine stays in business when their guarantee is so fabulous. Well…
Pank fades. I had no idea how much so until new vs. old was side by side. Plus, while the wee one ain’t happy, we’ve moved up to the 3/4″ size for her, to match the harness, and because that’s what Lupine recommends for Jack Russells, because pound for pound, they’re stronger than the average small dog.
And yes, that’s the same pattern, Puppy Love. Looks like it was made for Gretchen Greer, doesn’t it?! Pretty and preppy with a dose of love on top… Another reason I love Lupine. When form meets function, it’s a beautiful thing.
Likewise, I moved Sis up to a 1″ pattern, Sunny Days. I loved her now-retired Picnic Basket, and I suppose I could have looked into getting a custom harness made for her, but… Sunny Days is a good fit too. She has a sunny disposition, and after all, the Queen should wear royal purple, right?
I also feel as though the wider web will dispurse any potential “stress” on her neck more evenly. Maybe that’s crazy, but that’s what I do… I obsess about Sis and her glaucoma (and her food allergies) and then do what I can to assure her greatest, safest quality of life.
Along the Thankful Thursday theme, are you wearing purple today for Spirit Day? I am… and obviously, the fur girls wear purple every day. It’s something small that says I care and want the world to be a kinder place; bullying is NEVER okay.
