Speaking of cool, my very cool friend Sitka asked about my collar yesterday. She said, "Hey, blue looks awesome on you and what kind of collar are you wearing???" Ha roo and thank roo, Sitka. You're really a sweet girl!
As some of you may know, we're all assigned cool collar colors. Mine just happens to be blue. Storm has red (a power color, as is fitting!), Amber wears green (it looks really nice with her red and white fur!) and Dave has purple. He claims it signifies royalty ... whatever. I think it might have been one of the few options left, since he was the last one of us to be adopted and assigned a collar color. But again ... whatever.
I had Mom take this picture of me out on the deck yesterday, so you could get a good look at my collar. It's called a "Limited Slip Collar" and we get them from a place called Wolf Packs.
All the hardware is a very strong metal and the nylon part is an inch thick. Very strong! They are nice and comfy - but if you pull, they tighten! But only up to a certain point, which is nice. It prevents us from being able to do the "back up, shimmy, twist, gotta get free" maneuver. Mom and Dad are always worried about our safety.
You also might notice that in addition to our city tag, rabies tag and another ID tag, we all wear a dog tag. Yeah, like soldiers in our real Army wear! Cool, huh? I like it 'cuz it's COOL! Mom and Dad like them because the info doesn't wear off like it can and does on our other tags! Everyone's happy this way!The girls got to wear silencers on theirs at first. Mom had this wacky idea that Dave and I might eat ours (yeah, I couldn't believe that accusation either!), so we didn't get to wear them. Storm and Am's wore out fairly quickly, so they didn't get to be commandos real long. They were really cool while they lasted, though. Here's an old picture of Storm wearing hers.
See the black rubbery thing? That's the silencer. Cool, huh? Everything about Stormy is cool!
Anyroo..... that's our collar, Sitka! They're comfy and safe and come in cool colors! How about the rest of you? What kind of collars do you wear?
