It feels like it's been FOREVER since I've posted anything. Lot has been going on around here. I can't remember if I told you guys but Starbuck won a contest a couple of months ago! It's crazy, I never win anything but I think Starbuck has probably won about 3 contests so far. Most recently she won a contest put on by Pleasant Pup (check out her stuff here: http://www.pleasantpup.artsydog.com/ and here: http://www.etsy.com/shop/Dobergrrl). Isn't her stuff awesome? She even makes bracelets to match your dog's collar (and I'm a total sucker for that kind of stuff!).
AND Pleasant Pup is running another contest right now! Have any patriot pup pictures? Of course you do - so send them to Tricia to enter for your chance to win a gift certificate to get your very own awesome stuff. Here's how to enter (See Pleasant Pup's facebook page here: http://www.facebook.com/PleasantPup.):
"In case you haven't heard, Pleasant Pup is having a patriotic dog contest! Send us your photo to dobermonkey07 (at) yahoo (dot) com and I will post them to our contest album! There will be a prize for first, second and third!"
So just what did Starbuck win in the last Pleasant Pup contest with this adorable picture?
She won her very own custom martingale collar for agility! And here are some pictures of it:
Isn't it awesome?! It has Starbuck's named carved in it AND a skull!
Yeah, she looks pretty awesome in it.
Not only is this martingale the most excellent martingale ever, but it is super lucky! On the first trial weekend that Starbuck had it she finally got that last Advanced Standard leg - we have been trying to get that FOREVER! And the finished 3 titles, qualified in all three tournaments and got fully qualified for Cynosports this year - never thought that would happen.
In fact, we loved the martingale so much that we bought a very special collar for our little Alpha:
Yep, that's right it's bright red with SPIKES on it! She has those spikes to protect her if another dog ever tries to bite her in the neck again - two boxers attacked her on a walk and one was about to bite her little neck before my husband got her out of there...
Hopefully we never have another encounter with a dog attack again.
And just in case you are wondering - those symbols carved on the collar are her name, Alpha Prime!
