New Threads

Ha roo, pups and cool cats!  It's me - Zim!  Hey, remember last week Dave showed you the new camo collars and leashes Mom made us?  Right!  The wild Kansas State University purple for Dave and the Infantry Penn State University blue for me!  (Trying to placate Mom here...)  Anyway, they are made out of a bazillion thicknesses of twill fabric and some other stuff inside for even more strength.  When we have wet weather, though, it's good to use nylon (it dries quicker and doesn't get as messed up), so Dave found some nylon webbing in the Studio and had Mom make some coordinating leashes.

Purple for Dave and blue for me. We tried them out, then Mom thought she'd add a D-ring by the handle to make them easier to hang up:

Pretty cool, don't you think?!? As they say on TV, "But wait! That's not all!" It seems Mom did a little webbing shopping on the web (ha roo roo roo!) and bought some really cool stuff to make us even more new threads! Check it out!!!

Aren't they the coolest?!?!  It's digital "desert" camo and digital "grunt" camo!  ("Grunt" is a military slang term used for Infantry soldiers.)  And see on the right-hand side of the photo?  Mom also bought 2" wide webbing. We've seen some of our cool Great Dane friends wearing 2" wide collars and they looked really comfy; we thought we should give that a go.  Mom bought new 2" wide hardware and made us limited slip collars!  We thought it would be worth trying out!

Here I am, trying on the grunt camo collar with matching leash:

"Hey, is anycat out here?!?  Check out my new collar and leash!!"

I wanted to see what my kit-cat friends thought, but nocat was out there.

Then I tried out the 1" wide (the width we normally wear) and looked for my friends again.  I spotted Fluffy Black in our back yard:

"Hey Fluffy Black Cat!  Come check out my new leash and collar!"
"OK ... meet you around the other side, Zim!"

We met up on the other side of the house:

"C'mon up and tell me what you think!"

She came up the steps a bit, said she liked it ... then got a bit distracted.

"That's nice, Z--OOOH!  Birdies!  There are birdies in your bushes!!!"

I totally understand that getting distracted thing.

Later on, Dave decided since he used to wear desert camo and I wore woodland green camo, it would be fun to switch.  Here we are:

Can you even see me? In the right lighting, me and my collar & leash are all the same color!  Hey... that could be a lot of fun!   Ha roo roo roo!

Mom bought some more camo webbing, so we might switch things around later, but for now, these are our new threads!  What do you think of our color choices?
