Easter parade

Well, not a parade, but I'm going to show off my new winter harness.

My human bought it for me because it's dark when we go for our morning walk, and it's going to be dark in the evenings soon, too. My winter collar has reflective bitties in it, and my human got me a new leash of the same stuff, for crossing the roads in the dark.

Then we decided that, because my hair can get a little shaggy and cover my collar, we should also get a harness with reflective bitties, so that the people in cars have the best chance of not running me over.

We decided to go all purple as the base colour, because it suits me so nicely. My human said they had bright orange in the store and that might have been a better safety colour.

I said I'm not a constructionpuppy, even if I do like to follow all the workmen through the park to the building site in the morning (and even into the building site, if my human forgets to put me back on leash when we go past). So it's just as well they didn't have my size.

So what do you think... pretty, isn't it!



I think I like it more than my green harness, coz it doesn't go over my head, but clips up over my back.



I usually make my human chase me around the coffee table, or under the kitchen table, when she tries to put the green one on me. But I come to her to get this one put on.



Hee hee!

Hi Sasha,

Oh, of course you look gorgeous, you always do. And a harness that clips up from underneath? Hmmm, if our humans had found us one of those we might have worn it - we're not keen on things going over our heads either - grrrr!

That last photo of you is superb! We can hear you chuckling from here - we love it!

A harness?? Oh, no! Maxx would never consent to that, but he does like his leash. When the leash comes out, he knows he's going somewhere. And he LIKES to go!!!

Oooooh - I LOVE the colour of your new harness, Sasha! Purple really suits you! I'm glad you put your paw down on the 'construction orange'! :-) What a great idea - reflective collars & leashes & harneseses...we sometimes go walking after dark too, although I have to say, unless it it was pitch black, it would be a bit hard to miss me! Ha! Ha!

Thanks you SO much for your lovely comment and please tell your human thank you also for the tip about Endura. Hsin-Yi said she was so touched that your human thought of her and will definitely have a look for that!

And oh my goodness - are you coming up to Queensland soon? Is there any chance we could meet up? Don't know which part of Queensland you are planning to go to but if you're going to be anywhere near Brisbane, please let us know! We'll be going away the weekend of the 24th/25th April to the Richard Curtis workshop at Camp Tailwaggers on the Gold Coast but otherwise, we're pretty free!

Slobbers,
