Want a Harness or Two

I want a good flyball harness. Anyone know where to get one? I really like some styles… I like the Puppia Harnesses, but they are too small for Chase. Maybe one would fit Tatum, though. I want a harness for her because her martingale collar worries me. She could sleep it, it’s a bit large for her.

I haven’t seen any really nice harnesses out there that don’t rub under the dogs arms. Has to be a Y-Neck. If you know of any please let me know as I really want to buy a couple of them. I have mushing harnesses for Chase and Levi when we jog, but they are not really all the secure and I wouldn’t use one on a dog I had to make sure would not get away.

I have been taking Tatum out front on very short walks a couple of times a day. As confident as she is now in our house and yard, she is still nervous outside in the front yard. So slow short trips, but I need a harness for her… and I also like having some home lighting outdoors. It’s going to be getting dark early soon, and a bit of light helps!

The Hard One to Give Up

Okay… yes yes, we got these four amazing smoothies from Houston. And I will tell you, Tatum is going to be a hard one for me to part with. She has spunk. Major spunk and I love it. Good energy level, and she is a great size. I do like the smaller collies, I will admit. Mainly because of the dog sports we do. She would jump 20 inches in AKC I bet. And she is really nicely built for flyball, and would be a hoot to train in obedience. She has a good attitude and is very curious. Both great traits for a performance dog.

So, ya’ll have to tell me I can’t keep Tatum the Tater Tot! 🙂

And so to support these collies I do blog, and you do see some Blog Advertising here and there. This company, Pay U 2 Blog, is my favorite paid blogging company!


Well, with 9 dogs in our house, five of them collie fosters, we really do need to have organization and peace. 🙂 And so we borrowed some crates and here are the five Houston collies crated after eating dinner. I am not sure who is going to be crated while we are at work, but we’ll see about that tomorrow.

Tony is a sweetie, he’s finally settled down. He likes to talk and I think he’s a bit nervous. Tatum is a doll and I wish I could keep her. Young little rabbit she is, lots of energy and spunk, though tentative with people. Bianca is a doll and loves to play with Tatum. She is also a bit tentative but coming along. Hudson is the shyest and he likes his crate or his laundry basket to sleep in. We hope he will settle in and play soon.

So we are having a fun day. We have four dogs, and five fosters right now. I’m thinking I’m not going to post the fosters up on petfinder right away. Might wait a week or so until after vet checks and they settle in a bit.

We won’t be needing a Raleigh personal injury lawyer while we have this crew, as they will be keeping us all safe and warm!
