Yes, I’m writing a post entitled Poo… Go figure. It’s a brand name, okay?
Happy Thorsday, little friday, thankful thursday and really busy day/week/life. I think I warned you a while back that life is picking up steam and posts might be sporadic, but just in case you missed it or forgot, there’s your reminder. Thorsdays are important though, so that’s always a good day to check in!
There’s a party invitation the girls are sharing over on their blog. You know Gretchen won’t miss a chance to give smoochies, and Sissy isn’t going to miss a chance to be crowned queen of yet another thing.
So… about the title. Several of you insisted the girls and I needed safety vests for all of the walking we’re doing and the Knight was of the same mind. Of course, being a doting Dadaw, the girls had to have their signature colors. While we can’t recommend Gretchen’s little number, we’re still using it. It was intended to serve as a harness, but the first time we used it, she froze in place when a neighborhood dog met us in the street, and just that sudden stop and her retractable leash pulled the D-ring from the fabric. Luckily it was Gretchen the well-behaved and she remained frozen until I snapped her leash into the collar she always wears…
That’s a top-down view. Her regular harness is underneath. She likes her little “shirt” and has worn it around the house just because it’s hers and it’s pretty and it’s comfortable. Pity I can’t recommend it, as it’s soft, easy to put on and remove, and again, Gg loves it.
That’s where the PooBoss K9 Utility Vest comes in. While I hear purple is a popular favorite color for girls of all ages and it has been a symbol of royalty for centuries, it’s hard to find doggy attire in purple. But the Knight is a persistant shopper, and he stumbled upon this gem for his princess.
Now… regular readers and Sissy’s fans will recall girlfriend HATES clothes. Hem. It seems exceptions can be made for purple walk-walk attire, purchased by Dadaw. The silly goose actually ASKS for it now before every walk. The hot mess has been seen lounging around the house in her fancy walking vest.
See that tip of green at her rear hip? That’s the poo bag dispenser built right into the vest. If you want full feature photos of the vest and all its glory, follow the link above to their website. And yes, they offer it in pink, so I suspect that in time, wee one will have her own PooBoss.
That’s a shot of the other side, which is mesh so girlfriend can tote her own dirty poo bags at the beach. I won’t have to tie them to her leash handle anymore. Score!!
Clearly, I’m thankful for a well-designed doggy safety vest and for a husband who loves these silly dogs as much as I do.
What are you thankful for today?
