Favorite dog 'toys'

I tend to buy one of everything to give it a try, and I'm not kidding. (Kevin calls me a marketers dream...) Very few things stand the test-of-time and become my favorites:

Toys - Small black Kong, cloth frisbee, the 20cm motivation toy found at The Buddy Company

Leashes - 3 foot black leather or the 3 foot K9 Sportz leash from
My tracking line is made of the K9 Sportz material and it's strong, feels great, is waterproof and the mud flakes right off making it easy to clean.

Favorite collars - For Bullet... his nylon flame collar, 2" leather collar, black leather with grommits, and his "SunBurst Saturn Lighted Collar" from Lion Country Supply.
Mine is yellow and is visible from up to 1/2 a mile away. When my black dog is running through the black night, it looks like fire dancing through the air.
For Ceilidh... fursaver choke chain, thin rolled leather collar.

Clicker - The standard box design, and for some things the Karon Pryor i-Click. Don't like the bone shaped clickers or the larger boxes.

Exercise - The Springer Bike attachment, a must have for biking with your dog.

Boots - Muttluks. They stay on better than the cheaper brands, and fit better than neopaws. Expensive though, I plan on making my own in the future.

For Puppies - The Kong of course, the Molecule ball, and when the get the hang of that, the Buster Cube.

Love - the most excellent way

Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil, but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. Love never fails.
1 Corinthians 13:4-8 NIV

Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind. This is the first and greatest commandment. And the second is like it: Love your neighbour as yourself.
Matthew 22:37-39 NIV

Dear friends, let us love one another, for love comes from God. Everyone who loves has been born of God and knows God. Whoever does not love does not know God, because God is love. This is how God showed his love among us: He sent his one and only Son into the world that we might live through him. This is love: not that we loved God, but that he loved us and sent his Son as an atoning sacrifice for our sins. Dear friends, since God so loved us, we also ought to love one another. No one has ever seen God; but if we love each other, God lives in us and his love is made complete in us.
1 John 4:7-12 NIV

Kevin went out and got her a new collar today. It's not pink, but I think it's still quite lovely, don't you?
