Chipper: At last, a new collar for my adventures

Have your say

Greetings Chipsters everywhere. Last weekend was so much better than the one before because my dog flu had passed, meaning mum and I could finally go collar shopping together.

I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t dreading it at first – collars can be annoying at times, but I know just as well as anyone that it’s VERY important to wear one.

If I get spooked and run off, if I get lost, or if I am in an accident, you lovely humans will look straight at my collar with the big shiny dog tag on to see where it was I come from.

When we got to the shops we walked around for a while and took our time to browse all the different colours, patterns, and collar styles carefully.

As I was choosing something that’s going to be around my neck 24/7, it was important I got something representative of myself, the great Chipper.

Although I wasn’t looking forward to it at first, mum and I had a brilliant time dressing up in the fancy collars and pretending we were posh poodles.

In the end, I decided on a bright green reflective collar with bones and paws on it. Because I’m out and about all the time having adventures here, there, and everywhere, it made sense to get a collar that made me more visible.

Let’s hope I don’t ever have to hide – it’s a good job Halloween is out of the way!

Chip chip for now. Chipper.
