Somewhere along the road of puppyhood, Theo ended up collecting quite a bit of tags for himself! I know from the picture at the right here it looks like his collar is sagging from the weight of them, but it's really just the loop in the martingale collar...so it's not as bas as it looks.
How did I end up accumulating so many tags for him? I don't know, it just happened! It started with a bone. A stainless steel bone with Theo's name and phone number on it, in case he gets lost. Then we registered with the AKC and got a second tag with another number to call if he gets lost. After he got his rabies shot at 4 months, we registered him with the city, and they sent us another tag with another number to call in case he gets lost (also with, of course, his license number). Then we got him neutered and microchipped. The microchip registration came with that bright yellow tag with another number to call in case he gets lost.
Let's count 'em up: bone, AKC, registration, and microchip...that's 4! It doesn't sound like much, but they sure look like much. He's definitely not quiet with his collar on, but I actually like the noise. When it's time to walk Theo, I just jingle his collar and he comes running. Hehe.
I've heard that tags have the tendency to discolor a Corgi's fur, but so far I haven't seen that with Theo. He usually only has his collar on when we take him out, so maybe he just hasn't been exposed to them long enough for discoloration. If it starts to develop I may have to invest in one of those quiet tag holders...but then how will Theo know when it's time for a walk!?
PS: There's a couple new pictures uploaded on my Flickr. Hopefully I'll have the opportunity to get some good pics this weekend.
St. Patty's Day Feast - I can't believe how long it's taken me to blog about the food I made during the week of St. Patty's Day! I made such good things that week and such good...
