Today at the school yard, The Mafiosos couldn't stop congregating over something in the grass. This typically means a dead animal, so I quickly ran over to see what all the fuss was about. As I got closer, I realized that a stench was absent. That immediately ruled out my idea of a dead animal. So what in good heavens could be amusing The Mafiosos so intently?
Ahh...a dog collar! I picked it up thinking "Sweet! Second hand goods! I wonder which dog this will fit," only to realize upon closer inspection that the collar was broken. It was one of those quick-release type collars and it had broken apart in the quick-release area. I can only imagine the panic the dog owner felt when that collar broke.
So I just wanted to take a minute to be a worry-wort. Take a minute today to inspect your dog's collar(s) and make sure they are in working order. While you're there, also take a minute to take a look at your dog's tags. Are they still legible? Have they worn down from all the swaying? Perhaps it's time to get a new one with updated information?
I'm giving you an excuse to get out there and shop. ;-)
Carmela would like to add that if you're going to get a new collar, make sure it's one that has lots of attitude. She's just sayin'...
