Puppy Accessories

Loki got his ID tag today. I bought it off of eBay from the seller boomerangpets. I think it kind of looks like he's wearing a bow tie. The problem with having a dog is that I want to buy more puppy accessories. And I don't want to tell Yun, because he'll just yell at me for spending too much money on a dog. But really, I think he should be glad that we don't have a girl puppy, because then I'd really want to dress her up!

I'm thinking about getting Loki a Lupine brand martingale collar from the
Midwest Shiba Inu Rescue since proceeds go towards that rescue group. And if I get the collar, then obviously, I have to get the matching lead: I also have my eye on this collar from 2 Hounds Design: Martingale type collars may offer a more humane method of controlling your dog and prevent pulling, but what about a harness? Harnesses seem to be the most humane way of leashing a dog, but I think that it usually doesn't prevent pulling and in fact encourages it (think of sled dogs - harness is for pulling). PuppiaWorld has some really cute harnesses, but most of them are girly. In fact, the more I shop for dog accessories, the more I realize how few masculine designs there are. Maybe a male Pomeranian can wear a baby blue harness with white polka dots, but I don't think Loki can. What other accessories do I want? I'm thinking about getting a retractable leash or a tie out. Right now, he only has a 4 foot lead, which is good so that he learns how to properly walk on a loose leash. But if we take him for a BBQ at the park, I'd want to have a tie out for him.

I know that Yun's going to say I'm crazy and that he's just a dog and doesn't need all this stuff. But in my defense let me say that at least I don't want to get Loki this $24,266 bed from The Quintessential Pet:

Definitely get the martingale! That's what my shiba has and it's more difficult to pull out of than a regular collar.

I know what you mean by wanting to buy alot of stuff. Seeing a cute toy, a nice harness, a cool tag and etc, just got the urges. I went though alot and I even had to sell off some of Pearly's old stuff that she barely wear.

Loki...you are too cute!!!

My dogs only wear Martingales & Lupine collars last forever! I was just looking at some collars on 2hounds website & decided $90 was too much for me to part with for 3 collars! They are beautiful though.

BOL! If we had that bed, we would sure enjoy chewing on all that wood! Sis wants to know if Loki is a trickster?
