Make sure you have those collars snug

Make sure you have those collars snug

I haven't mentioned it but we got a new puppy a few weeks ago. The two dogs get along really well and play frequently, they are either napping together or it's like the WWF. I've always made sure collars were snug because I was aware of the choking hazard but the collar on the puppy was too loose and somehow it got looped around the older dogs bottom jaw like it was in a figure 8. One loop on the jaw and one loop on the puppies neck. Of course the puppy is howling and the big dog was panicked dragging her around trying to get away. Fortunately we were able to get it off really quick, if they were here alone the puppy would probably be dead because it was really tight and she was having an obvious problem breathing.

The logic is that it is very important to keep the collars snug on whatever you are working with....or something bad can happen....Actually, Dann, Richard was upset because he can't be downeast to enjoy the blueberry festival! Nice day; no humidity for a change, slightly cooler.....and yes, lots of talk about fuel for the winta! Where is the summer going? Poof, and Freddie will be back to get ready to fire-up the beast. :D :idea: :!:
