Or, MM shopping report part 2.
Happy Thorsday, little friday, thankful thursday and more. My post over on the girls’ blog is about our less than ideal walk last week and the aftermath, but this post is all about doggy joy!
But first, I have to report that the Red Rocker Christmas Crack – er, Rocking Chair Mix – is GONE. (See yesterday’s post for more info.) The Knight – and the fur-girls – liked it VERY much. I was allowed to try one piece of each of the components, and it was too sweet for me, but if you love white chocolate and crunch, you’d be a fan.
I wish I’d taken a photo of ABC PetWear‘s booth at Mistletoe Market. They had a great, large space on my favorite wall on the far end of the room, and it was filled with doggy bandanas and harnesses. There were also some great, snarky-funny human tees too. I wanted some of almost everything, but the owners even suggested that perhaps I should just try one harness first…
It’s a HUGE hit. Gg needs a harness because like most terriers, she’s a puller, but the girl is PICKY. The only harness she’s ever loved lasted part of one walk, because the D-ring popped off the back the first time she saw a squirrel. Hem.
I discussed her size, her behavior, etc., and the owners encouraged me to try to pull the harness apart. I couldn’t. (And I am a strong woman… really!) Before we set out on our walk, the Knight picked Gg up by the ring, shook her up and down, side to side, and declared her safe.
Now that we’ve tried it, I’m ordering the blaze orange reflective one for her (she wears a medium if that helps?) and another in XL for Sis. No, an XL won’t exactly fit Sis, and no, they don’t take custom orders, but as has been my experience as Sissy’s human, I just had to share my girl’s story, and they are going to add one inch to both belly and neck for my big girl, who must wear a harness because of her glaucoma and the negative effects of throat pressure on eye pressure.
They have a great website. I’m sure Gg would love a mini-skirt harness too. Heck with my Lilly P problem… I think Gg is going to have an ABC problem in a very short order…
Thankful? I’m thankful for the women in the League who chair our fundraisers and plan our big events. It’s not something I could do, so I’m grateful for those with the interest and abilities to pull off a holiday market, a holiday party and a gala casino night. I’m thankful for the diversity of vendors, which included pet goodies! And I’m delighted there are enterprising dog lovers who REALLY get what pets and their owners need.
What are you thankful for today?
