I chose other because of Tanner's dog class. He has a special show collar which is basically a "choke" collar but it is round it's called a snake link or Hex link and it actually looks like a pretty silver necklace not the chains that are found in the pet supply stores, so this goes with any leash. He also has a flat collar with a metal buckle and that it is green because we are an Irish family lol. He has three different obedience leads and it all depends on which one is grabbed we have a green one, red one, and a black one. These are all cotton-web 6ft. long leashes, they require the kids to use the cotton web because they don't hurt the hand if the dog should pull or tug and unfortunately they aren't very fancy and only come in a few colors. He also has a show lead which is just a 3 ft. long lead that slips over the head that we use for showmanship these are the leashes that you will see on the dogs if watching a dog show on TV, they are barely visible from a distance and only used for slight control, they are for show more than anything else, and you could never use one of those for a normal walk around the neighborhood. So I guess you could say they do match because the silver matches anything, then again I guess you could say they don't well, they do if we use the green lead lol. Collene has a "tack box" which holds all of her supplies for dog class and that is where at least two of the leads are at all times, sometimes the other kids will forget their "obedience lead" and Collene will lend one out so it is pick of the day I guess lol.

Tanner is healing very quickly from the surgery thank goodness, he is back to his old self again chasing the broom, mop, vaccumn, etc etc etc. No results yet, he gets his stitches out the 21st of September and hopefull the results will be there that day too.

Gracie and Bud don't have nearly as many collars and leashes as Tanner does - If I told them about his, they'd be jealous. LOL


Gracie came with a little itty bitty purple collar and leash and Bud had a green collar and leash when we adopted him. I was told by someone here a long time ago that a rolled leather collar keeps the fur from getting really tangled so I got one for each of them. Then, as a reward for graduating their first obedience classes, I got them each a leather leash. I love them.

Umm... can you tell that the leashes were for me - not really for the doggies?


They actually got a graduation bag from Petsmart that had a fleecy squeaky toy and they both ran up and down the hall way squeaking their toys. It was hilarious! Bud isn't into toys but that one he liked.
