All That's Left - part II!

Coco's collar

I'm so behind on web stuff, email and everything else! But just wanted to say, doggies are doing fine. I'll be blogging about them again soon. Stuff has backed up, stress has taken me for quite a ride. Many posts I started (on MY dogs) were never published but need to be re-dated and finally put online. It's always more fun to make a photo blog and what happened was that I was never getting around to taking new pics. :)

Other stuff... I am so wanting to get back to finding time to play The Sims 2, I'm having trouble remembering all the tricks I used to know about the game so I'll probably have to relearn a lot. I am several stuff packs and expansion packs behind and have little clue what they involve and add to the game, aside from Seasons which is giving the game complications of weather and of the leaves on trees turning color (which must look pretty cool but probably needs lots more memory to run). There's a new expansion that lets you do Vacations, called Bon Voyage (boy I can't remember my last real life vacation!). I'm far from tired of the expansion packs that I do have; I've got an idea for using the game for a real life dog related project which I have roughly formulated in my head. (yep, gotta find some productive use of computer games, haha!)

Soooooo.... Anyway, you probably are wondering what is the story that goes with the above collar pic.

sigh... If you're a regular reader, you probably already have an idea given the tooth marks in the webbing... ;)

To my dismay, our resident collar bandit(s) has demolished yet another collar. See above, this is was Coco's collar. It's a new one I ordered back in June (didn't get for a month cos the order got lost). I ordered 3 web martigale collars several months ago in the same style but different colors, one each for Ruya, Coco and for Coco's brother, Helmut. Doesn't above remains look a lot like what happened to Ruya's collar?

And that's not all, Ruya's collar (a black one this time) has gone missing again! I suspect that pieces will turn up eventually.

AND Helmut? Oh yep, I put a nice blue collar on him and his is missing too.

Between the three of those guys, I can't keep collars on them! Tags get twisted off and lost too. What to do? I don't want to put tight buckle collars on them for fear that one will get teeth hooked in and there could be a panic that might result in a serious fight if no one is home, but at the rate we're going, this is deja vu. It happened with Ruya and Boone when they were growing up. I think I'll keep collars off the trio for another year or so!

Zor (mama) and Boone (adult male) still have their collars but neither of the two care for the neck grabbing war games that the trio enjoy, so it's just a Coco, Ruya and Helmut thing about war games that involve grabbing collars.

Pictures coming... I haven't taken new ones for quite a while! (but don't hold your breath!) ;)
My first experience with rough coated Anatolians and both Coco and Helmut are turning out to have quite different coats!

Don't worry, in a couple of years the pups will lose interest in chewing everything in sight. I wish I knew a source for tougher collars but greyhounds are not known for needing them!

A couple years, yeah... sigh
I'll enjoy their youth though!

Ruya grew out of doing it with Boone (same age as she is, 4.5 years). Now she's a puppy again because of the brats.
