Diva dog

Version 2

Misty has had an afternoon of pretending to be a Diva Dog. She has effectively outworn her fourth collar – there have been two puppy-sized and two adult-sized red ones in her lifetime, but then she will be 10 years old next month. She will now be sporting a tartan collar in predominantly red. I haven’t yet photographed her in it as she has indicated that it needs to be worn in a tad.

We have a box of doggy odds and ends in the cupboards underneath the food store and I am a bit ashamed to confess that on investigation I discovered that there are a total of 8 new collars of various sizes and designs therein. It looks like we have gone through the Oh-dear-this-collar-is-just-about-falling-to-bits scenario followed by a not very successful trip to the pet shop for a replacement.

I am now in the process of looking for a new raincoat that she will like and will do the job. Our autumn weather is usually rather wet. Let’s face it our spring weather is wet, our summer weather is certainly wet and and our winter weather is either wet or snowy and windy. The difficulty with cairn terriers is that though they are tough little dogs, they are very low to the ground so are susceptible to the aches and pains caused by the cold and wet. We perhaps should whisper the next bit – Misty is getting a little bit less agile and needs plenty of TLC.

Don’t we all!

    Well, she is tiny enough to use just a bit of raincloth it seems. I find my aches and pains are worse on rainy days as well.

  3. We have similar issue with Clare who will be 12 next April. Johnny the kid is only 7. They sure grow old fast don’t they?

    Me a Diva, no, not really. I just like to be well dressed and looking good, although I will let you into a secret – I do not like having my face groomed. That is a pity because I therefore sometimes sport a rather shaggy dog look.
    On the subject of collars, while I like them to be bright and smart it is more important that they are soft on the inside and comfortable and definitely not too tight.
    As far as coats are concerned the only one I have in my wardrobe which I don’t like is a hand knitted one. Not good for the looking good image. This time I would like one of those coats which are rather like a body stocking, covering not just my back but partly down my front legs and along my tummy. Truthfully I would like to go to one of the big pet stores where there is a wide range of coats and try them on until I felt comfortable and cosy in one. I know this is what my mum does when she is looking for new clothes, not the pet shop bit though, a store for humans not dogs!
    Watch this space for my latest wardrobe addition.
