The Snowflake Collar

Last month (or year even – I’m still not used to that) I entered a competition on Simba the Golden Retriever’s Blog, to win a collar from Fido’s Closet. It was the first ever competition I entered on blog, and I really didn’t think I’d win – but much to my surprise, I did!

It arrived last week, and Sheila was the first to try it on.

That suits you Sheila. It’s very slimming!

She found the collar very comfortable, and I thought it was lovely. Perfect for relaxing on the chair in.

The collar suited the dog’s Christmas presents nicely.

And it did fit her very well.

I think Sheila loves the new collar.

But I did actually want the collar for Pip, so she was the next dog to try it on.

It’s a bit big, but she’ll soon grow into it!

It’s not too big, though, because it doesn’t fall off whenever she bends over.

She’s a model poser, isn’t she?

Before we got the collar, I had been asking every day, “Has the post come yet?” I was so excited!

I had never seen a collar like it before, but I loved it!

But the question is, does Pip?

I think so. I certainly do!

Thanks so, so much Simba! We love it!
