Hi! Dory here - and boy oh boy, has it been fun around here. My bath at Laundromutt made me shiny and clean!
Mom's friend went to The Black Dog Tavern and Store, and imagine that a whole tavern and store right on the island of Martha's Vineyard named for me!!! Anyhow, Mom's friend got me this great collar with my picture on it.
Isn't this cool!!!!!!!!!!!
Then a box arrived and I was very excited - what could it be???
Well when my human finally got the box opened I was very disappointed, it smelled rubbery like a dog toy - but it wasn't for me.
Sadly it was for my human. She needed boots to keep her feet dry on the boat and she found some at Target.com that she couldn't pass up. Apparently there are about 50 different women's rain boots in all kinds of fun colors and patterns and cheap too!!
Then today in the mail a package from Kathleen at Snazzy Petz on Ebay came which can only mean one thing - A NEW COLLAR!!
It looks really pretty and Mom says it is special for the 4th of July!
Kathleen always wraps up my collars so pretty when she sends them - she made my Lobster and University of Michigan collars too.
It's very nice - red, white and blue with USA and stars in gold - that truly is SNAZZY!! Thanks Kathleen - you and Wally Cat make the bestest collars ever!
Mom said I could "try it on"!
Don't hate me because I'm BEAUTIFUL!!

Those are pretty collars! I need a new one so I might need to check out where you get yours!

Lady Kaos said...

WOW! 2 new collars in 1 day! Once Mom is feeling better we're going to check out all the places that everybody is recomending for collars. My collar is my favorite colors, but it's not in very good condition anymore.

Ferndoggle said...

My Mom needs to order those boots so I can chew them up! They look like so much fun!

I love your new collars...Penny & I just ordered new ones too, but they're not here yet. Mom is gonna check out Snazzy Pets and see if she can find one for Sherman.

Thanks for the HOT tip!

Wow Dory, that collar look great on you. Its so colorful & it really suit your color.

The personalized collar with YOU on it is perfect! I want to go to the Black Dog Tavern and Store. Do they have dog beer for Black Dogs? We prefer dark beer.


Sophie Brador said...

Oh Dory, How could I hate you? You are just as beautiful as me. Every time you post of picture of you with your ears flat, like that last one, you look just like me, only black. I think we'd make a great singing act.

Marvin The Dog said...

I could never hate you Dory, I love you 'cos you are beautiful, not only to look at, but in mind and nature too!

love you lots and lots, and lots of Scottish lots!

Thanks for letting us know about Kathleen, Dot loves her collar and we're ordering more.

Mom had no idea Target.com has those boots! Could be trouble.

Hope you have a great weekend!!

Charlie said...

You look SOOOO shinny and pretty, and I just loves your new collar, and remember, if it smells like a chewy toy, it most probably is, so I wouldnt worry to much. Enjoy!


Forest Dogs said...

Sparky - I like the stripy collar with the stars
Jazz - No, the one with the Dory on is better... how smart is that, to have a pic of yourself on your collar!!


The Dona Nobis Pacem (Peaceglobe) Day has really caught the imagination of some blogging dogs. Up until now, the Catosphere has dominated, but Mimi, founder of the Blogblast for Peace (yes, it really does have that many names!) has sent out a plea for more peace-loving dogs to join:

ChaCha & Yuki said...

hahah sorry didn't realise that your were tagged already. Nevermind, i'll tag you earlier next time;)

Dachsies Rule said...

Dory we could never hate you. We are envious of all of those new collars. We each only have one collar. Your mom must like you better than our mom likes us.

You are VERY beautiful Dory - and I love your new collars :)


Gomer & Opie said...

Wow! All decked out and beautiful you are! We like your shiny clean black coat. Where's the laundromutt? Is it anything like the pet wash in savage, MN?

Wuf Ya! - Gomer & Opie

Flori said...

My god, Dory, you look so so beautiful. Not only because of Laundromutt, but because of this awesome collar. I MUST get Alpha Su to buy me one.
Thanks for your message. In case you don't read my answer, here is a copy of it...
Dory and liza: how nice to have news from you. Thanks for the flattering compliments. I actually didn't like the sunglasses at all, but Alpha Su insisted on them, and sometimes she's the boss.
So have you got porcupines where you live? And what is a racoon? Gosh, that sounds exciting. I nearly get a heart attack already when I meet a hedgehog. They might be cute to humans, but to me, they just make me losing my marbles. So a racoon, that sounds even greater fun. Can you send one over, please? I know that Royal Mail offers a good service with the US.
By the way, your German is just magic. It is so cute that I always love with tears. Please send me more of those messages.
Lots of wet licks, Flori

Wow Dory,
Another cool collar. Mama needs to view her site again & find something for us. They are a bit wider than what we normally wear, but she has such cute patterns. Your Mama's rain boots are cool too!
Luv & Wirey Hugs!
