You would think that living with Ray since he was a six pound baby in January that I would be able to anticipate how fast he grows, but alas, I am a slow learner in that department. Maybe like all moms I lament that my baby is growing too fast although I’m very happy that his maturity level is also growing. When we brought him home I had two collars for him because I didn’t actually measure his neck and kept guesstimating the size, both of which seemed enormous. He has been wearing his purple click lock collar this whole time and we finally took it off a couple of weeks ago since it seemed to be getting tight.
I thought I’d be able to switch easily to his purple buckle collar but of course that is too small already and has never been worn. Time to donate, I guess.
What I’ve been waiting for is his growth rate to stabilize a little so that I could order his first Sirius Republic collar and naturally, I waited too long. My big plan was to have his next collar already here on deck so that when he outgrew the purple one he’d have his new one all ready. But, you may have noticed that he has been rather naked lately around the neck. It took me forever to narrow down what fabric I wanted and after
only changing my mind forty-two times or so careful deliberation, decided on Candy Dots with purple embroidery.
I figured it was a little twist from his usual purple collar and a nice transition to his big boy collar, one of which will be more like this, especially for football season. (Did you think we just named him Ray because we’re boring?)
In the meantime, I love this collar and so does Ray. I feel like it is kind of understated but still fun and naturally the quality is tip top. Kevin, however, thinks it is a girl’s collar. What do you think? Does it look “girly” to you? Of course, Sirius Republic is seriously awesome and a portion of this sale goes to the wonderful rescue who gave Ray-Ray such a great start in life, SmilingK9’s. (code RPSK99)
