Yesterday was big. I got mail. It's only happened once or twice before, from my Aunt Donna in California, mainly. So, what could this be?
OMD. It's my GABE giveway from Bunny! I did pick out the color myself but I still had no idea it would be so beautiful! I am totally going to rock in this. It's a no-pull harness (we'll see about that) from Wiggles, Wags & Whiskers. As you can imagine I wanted to try it on right away. The problem with that was that the Moms felt that it would be best all around if I waited until someone was ready to take me for a walkie. They might have been right. I would not have taken kindly to getting all dressed up and then being told that we weren't going anyplace after all. I only had to wait until this morning. It just seemed longer.
As you can see, I did my best to be ready with a coordinating collar. It's not too matchy, matchy is it? I rather like it. I think the whole thing brings out my red highlights quite nicely. It's a very sturdy harness. So well made.
And the parts that go around me behind my front legs - velvet. Yes, I said "velvet". I feel even more like a queen than usual. So, let's try it it out.
You can kind of see why the Moms and my other humans felt that a no pull harness would be a good kind of harness for me. It feels good. I can still pull, but Alpha Mom says that whether or not it helps me deveop better habits, it definitely gives her more control She and I took a long walk with it and her arm is still in its socket, so I'd say the harness did its job.
I should add that the double leash training mode is optional and this wonderful harness will take a regular leash, too. Bunny sent it with everything, which she didn't have to do. We'll have occasions to use it both ways and I'm already planning color schemes for when we want to use a single, longer leash. I think spring into summer my red leash with the silver reflecting pawprints would be a kicky combo. And I'm considering my hot pink one, also with silver reflecting pawprints, for a midsummer sort of surfer look. Too daring and wild? What do you think?
Since I was in a good mood after the walkie, I agreed to model the collar, too. But now I think a nap is in order.
Dozing in the warm sun, after a long walk. It doesn't need to get a lot better than this.
I do want to thank Bunny once again for a most generous and welcome gift. We will be getting a lot of use out of it.
