the rusty dog

We're dog-sitting Molly for a few weeks whilst Debbie and Jason have gone back to Canada for a holiday. I noticed the fluff on Molly's neck was becoming discoloured and realised it was coming from her collar. She *loves* going in the sea - mostly to dig up stones from the sea bed - and the metal part of the collar was getting rusty with the sea water ... the photo's not too clear so I put on some arrows to show the rusty bits.

and transferring the rusty colour to her neck! Woops!

So this morning I went up to the pet shop and bought her a new collar with no metal bits on it. She LOVES it! I told her it was a glow-in-the-dark collar and she can't wait until night-time to check it out!

She was a bit bamboozled when I put her old collar on her monster toy!

Fun times whilst dog-sitting! :oD

  1. Awww, I bet you're having a whale of a time dog-sitting. Archie's got a similar collar to the one you've bought Molly, no nasty metal which is going to rust.

    1. The only time the dog-sitting is annoying is when the postie comes along the road. Molly barks and barks and barks and barks - and won't stop until he's gone from sight! Other than that, it's all good! :oD

  2. Awwwww - Molly looks so cute in her new duds. Tilly's going to want a glow in the dark collar now, too!

    1. Doesn't Tilly's already glow in the dark? It's certainly *pink* enough! :oD

    1. It is fun, Anna - although there might be that element of "they'll come and take her away soon" in there too. None of my own dogs ever needed out at 5am *every* morning! Aaaargh! :oD

Thanks for taking the time to comment on my blethers. I really appreciate it. I do try to reply to everyone but sometimes life just gets in the way of that happening! :o)
