Farewell Puppy Collars

The sad day has finally come for Link and Eve to shed their puppy collars.  These collars were the ones we brought the pups home in.  Eve’s light pink and Link’s blue began so loose we had to poke new holes to stop them sliding over their heads.  The extra collar length on each of them hung down from their neck in the anticipation for the growth to come.  For the past couple of weeks we have been holding onto them by the very last hole.  I feel this puppy collar loss is special to larger dogs that will only fit small collars for a very short time.  So quickly they grow!

Now the addition of a new medium collar marks their exciting new journey into adolescence.  Sarcastically I welcome it;  filled with teething, awkward growth spurts and more energy at a larger size, adolescence will be an experience.

  2. Awww no more baby collars!
    Good luck with the adolescent months! Darwin as actually pretty good, she wasn’t a chewer so we didn’t have destroyed stuff (though she did chew one of my heels). She’s actually more destructive (with her toys) now than she was when she was younger.

    That first picture of Eve in her puppy collar is the best picture of any dog ever taken. Just sayin’.

  4. Thanks for the well-wishes on the growing up.

    Hopefully they avoid the major chewing phase…like Darwin.

    How were Lexi & Jasper as their teeth starting getting bigger? Hopefully no horror stories.

    AC, you need to send us pictures of Indy. Stat.
