Adventures In Fostering

We now have Lily with us. She's Rose's sister.
Lily is a wonderful little dog that attaches to one person quickly. She will need extra time to trust others but once she does, she steals your heart!

The benefits of a harness vs the collar

I used to advocate the harness for small dogs rather than a regular collar. 
I still do.
I've now seen the advantage with larger dogs too.
With a tiny dog, a collar is like a noose. As the dog pulls, pressure is placed on the delicate trachea. 
When the dog pulls back, the collar tends to shift and you could possibly end up with NO dog on the end of the leash. 
The same thing happens with big dogs.
The harness gives the owner a lot more control and spreads the pressure throughout the body of the dog.
I've witnessed embedded collars and permanent indents in a dog's neck from the daily wear of a collar.
Please consider using a decorative collar along with a harness for pictures and events. 
Your dog may not be able to thank you but will be safe and comfortable.

As we move into the holiday season, I'm just going to wish all the retailers a good one!
It's important for every industry to do well in order for us to maintain our lifestyles.
Each business matters in the whole scheme of things and as we all profit this season, it keeps people employed and able to live and work happily.

Handmade items made by people who work at home from their kitchen table require sales to be able to continue to do so.
I think by purchasing these items, we also contribute to a small segment of the business population.
I simply hope for prosperity for the future.
Happy Early Christmas!
