So for Knox’s one year adopt-a-versary, I decided to splurge on a new collar. It was quite a generous gift for our boy, however he has ‘eaten through’ about 5 collars so far. See we let him get ‘naked’ at night, sans collar and jingley tags, but occasionally we don’t put it back on when we leave the house. Left to his own devices, Knox sometimes will find the collar and chew up the buckle. You would think us humans would catch on…
Anyway we got Knox a super cool, customized collar from Blocky Dogs, meant for “heavy-duty dogs”. Well Knox fits the bill. After quite a wait (they take about 2 months to make), it finally arrived. WE LOVE IT! We think Knox looks so handsome (Evey thinks so too), and we hope that this is the last collar we will ever purchase him.
We chose the ‘smaller’ 1.5 inch width, regular flat collar; their most basic collar. However this is anything but a basic collar! Check out some of the cool features.
Personalized embroidery with several options of decals (we went with paws, but almost chose the bones, they were cute too!)
Above is the Blocky Dog ‘keeper’, which is cool, and also super durable!
And below is the Tiny D right for the ID tags. Strategically, this hangs on the SIDE of the neck, not under the mouth. Which makes it easier for someone to see should Knox ever get away from us.
And possibly a little less intimidating for someone to check out, though all they would get was a wash down of the face, via dog tongue.
Look, it hangs perfectly all the time, with his name above, and the tags to the side, quite impressed by that actually. (Seriously, even when walking— all the time!)
We love his new collar! It is a big stiff at first, and is slowly starting to become more pliable, though it has a ways to go. This was explained several times to use, and we even received an email with detailed instructions and pictures of how to ‘work’ the collar when we first got it. Thanks for the new collar, Blocky Dogs! We love it!
Now, about lunching in Fells. We visited The Point, where they doted over Knox and Eve. They both got their own water bowls and were even offered something from their special doggie menu! Now that Baltimore passed the health code that says it is allowed for dogs to dine outside with their owners, we’ve seen things like this pop up all over Baltimore, it’s awesome!
The doggie menu, on this particular day, included a Veal Marrow Bone, a Doggie hot dog, and a Smoked Pig’s Foot. Our guys just went with some ice water. But still, the options were pretty cool!
Here’s Eve working on her down stay (above), and checkin’ out the scene on a bustling Sunday in Fells Point.
See ya next time, Fell’s!
