miss_s_b: Peter Falk as Columbo saying "just one more thing" (Fangirling: Columbo)
There's a few of the doggy accounts I follow on instagram (and if you're an instagram user who's not following Inna The Iggy, Whippy Jim, and Angharad's Athena you totally should be) whose doggies get subscription treat/toy parcels.

Any of you lot tried any of these? Any recommendations for or against? From googling there seem to be LOADS of them, but I can only find one offering a multidog package...

ETA: the ones I am leaning towards are:
  • Barks and Bunnies because they have such a wide selection of types of box, including a multidog box

  • Top Collar because they are treats only, and come fortnightly which is a nice frequency, and while I do like the idea of the odd new toy, I worry that any which include toys might end up with the toys not being used much

  • Hound Haus because they contribute to homeless doggies upkeep

  • WoofBox because I like the rating system for how often you would like to get the various categories of product.

Ones I have looked at and rejected for various reasons: Pawsome (awful website), Barkbeats (awful tales of their customer service), Houndbox (stupidly expensive), Pawpost, the tail wagger, and many more. What REALLY bothers me is the number of these types of service that there are reviews of online, having started in the last couple of years, that have gone bust or are no longer there (Fings for Fido and PoochPack for example). I don't want to start a subscription to something that's going to disappear in a couple of months. Been there, done that, bought the Marvel Hammer Horror Magazine...

So yeah, any thoughts will be gratefully recieved.

So I ordered collars for my hairy babies from Celtic Hound a couple of weeks ago. They have a little waiting list because everything is handmade to order. They arrived this morning.

OMG they're amazing. The workmanship is beautiful, and the leather feels properly sturdy, and the suede lining is mega soft. You can see pictures of Spike and Roxy modelling them on my instagram, but my photography skills aren't really the bestest.

I'll say this though: they are totally worth the money. Every single penny.

... is the Sighthound community on instagram.

Greyhounds, lurchers, whippets, Italian greyhounds etc. All the Sighthounds.

All the Sighthounds supporting all the other Sighthounds in their little peculiarities of really thin skin that gets cuts dead easily, and wanting to run REALLY FAST then sleep immediately after all the time, and sleeping in really stupid positions, and all the other little idiosyncracies of the Sighthound.

Sighthounds are ace, really.

I loves my doggies.

Disclaimer: there may have been wine consumed this evening. You're lucky I'm being soppy about the dogs and not any actual humans.

"I think we should train the dogs to make breakfast"
"A fine idea in theory, but I fear it would not work in practise. Spike would go into the kitchen, get the butter dish to butter the toast, and hide under the dining table eating it. Roxy would spin round in small circles making Wookiee noises while the toast burnt."
"But that means one of us has to get out of bed..."
