You know you are old if you outlive your friends, or in the case of a dog if you outlive your collar.
My dog Zeppelin is 14 years 7 months and last night his lifelong leather collar fell apart. So for Zep it was a trip to PETCO to do some shopping.....As a dog of the people, Zep buys off the rack and opted for another leather collar...only this time he spurned brown and went a little rogue, getting red !
At his age he doesn't buy green bananas, so he is sure this collar will take him the rest of the way.
Just to splurge he picked up some treats and a squeak toy that will be ripped apart by tomorrow...But hey, it wasn't his money.
