Word Whiz Wednesday #10: Collar

Posted on February 2, 2011


Gus loves when he hears us say “collar” and enthusiastically wags his tail (to the right) when we mention the word.  To Gus, putting his collar on signals that we’re back home with no plans on leaving, which is just how he likes it.

We purchased this adorable collar and leash a few years ago from WaLk-e-Woo.  After spending countless hours scouring the internet for the perfect set, we finally settled on the green polka dots.  We have a mild obsession with a) anything kiwi or avocado green in color, b) polka dots and c) kick-ass small businesses with taglines like, “the bitches Love ’em”.  Clearly, WaLk-e-Woo was the trifecta.  Every time we put his collar on we sing, “WaLk-eee-Woo0ooooooo”.  Gus fully appreciates our singing, but we can guarantee you he’s the only one.

Gus was very concerned when I took his collar off to snap the next couple of photos.  Mom, you’re not leaving the house, are you?

The leash is getting a bit worn from being drug on the ground one-too-many times during our walks, but otherwise they’re as good as new.  Is it crazy that we’re a bit sentimental when it comes to his collar and leash?  We have a couple of new collars to add to the mix, but it’ll be weird not to see him in his cheerful polka dots everyday.

Out of curiosity, does your dog wear his/her collar all the time?  We take Gus’s collar off when he’s left alone in the house and at bedtime.  Once we’ve all climbed into bed we say, “time to get into your jammies!”.

P.S.  Remember when we bragged blogged about our balmy 80 degree day?  Well, we didn’t get to enjoy it for very long…it’s only 25 degrees right now and only 10 degrees with the wind chill.  Brrrr!  This is what Gus did last night to stay warm…

It’s Wednesday which means you should head on over to BlogPaws for their Wordless Wednesday Linky.  We obviously have troubles remaining wordless, but they haven’t kicked us out…yet. 😉
