How Many Collars Will You Buy Over Your Dog's Life?
June 01, 2009
Dear Fellow Dog Lover,

Happy June Ya’ll!

I wanted to start the month off right with a quick note to all of you!

Question: How Many Collars Will You Buy Over Your Dog's Life?

When Baggins was a puppy he was chewing everything! Throw pillows, headbands, my (ahem) unmentionables, leashes, dog food bags. Anything he could get hold of. Oddly enough though, I don’t remember him chewing any shoes….

I’m sure you can relate to puppies chewing your things too ;) .

We sure went through our share of collars and leashes. It seems every few days I was heading to the store for one or the other.

You know by now there are few guarantees in life.

I’ve never been much of a tools person--a hammer and some picture hooks is about the extent of my toolbox--but I remember learning about the Sears Craftsman lifetime guarantee when I was young. From what I remember, Sears guaranteed their tools for life. I was impressed.

How does the Craftsman guarantee relate to dog collars? Well, last week I discovered a company that guarantees their collars. Even if Fido chews it to pieces!

I just had to share this with you in case you’re suffering from “the puppy eats everything” blues. In case you don’t know, Lupine is a brand that guarantees its’ collars and leashes. If Max chews through it, they’ll replace it! I mean, that would have saved me at least $70!

And they’re cute! Made of a woven nylon type fabric with the image embedded in the fabric, the image will stay bright and not fade away so your collar stays newer looking longer.

And the ones I’ve seen are in the $10-$17 dollar range which I think is more than fair for a lifetime guarantee.

Baggins doesn’t chew things up anymore and he doesn’t have a wardrobe of collars (with all his fur, they’re hard to see anyway) but you can bet the next dog collar I buy is a

Lupine collar
Why not take a look for yourself? I think you’ll agree, guarantees like this are hard to come by.

Cheese Bits

Life is finally starting to get back into a routine after our move and my extended trip to New Orleans but I’m still trying to get back into baking treats. In the meantime, here’s a Baggins favorite. It’s not a recipe as much as a quickie tasty treat.

Cheese Bits

Cut the rind off your cheese, slice it into small pieces and feed it as an occasional reward treat for your pet.

No rind? Just cut up a hard cheese into small tastes for rewards.

I find there’s lots of tail wagging for cheese!
