Good Morning,

And welcome to True Colours Thursday. Today's color is at the discretion of the player so we decided to model our new harnesses for you. Should you wish to play along, please go over and let Blue know - then you are in.

All Scotties like to be dressed in tartan - that is our national dress. And it is hard to find nice leashes and collars that are tartan. Becky, at Sweet Cottage Dreams, told Mom that she had purchased harnesses and leashes for her Scottie, Duhgall, from Tartan Scotties. And of course Mom had to order just one to check them out - then she decided to order harnesses and leashes for all of us. She apologizes for the quality of the pictures - she was holding us and photoing at the same time.

This is Carrleigh -
her enseble is called Heather Brae Tartan.
She looks good in pink and purples and
Mom was happy to find a pink/purple tartan for her.

Piper is modeling
Aberdeen Tartan.
Mom kind of wishes she had
got a blue one for him -
maybe next time.

Here is Lilly wearing
a Celtic Knot Pattern harness.
She has a leash that matc
hes it,
but she also has her own DOH
who didn't get all of the leashes outside when photoing
and was in a hurry.
(You'll find out why in a lat
er post)

We are considering purchasing this one for Java -
so we can make him an honorary Scottie.

No harness or collar would be complete without a great ta
g. Previously we had purchased our tags from one of those machines at the mall or pet store. Mom received an email recommending the Boomerang Pet Tag. Mom is forever the skeptic so she will only purchase one to start with. This is the same tag that she bought for Piper. She says these are the greatest pet tags she has ever found anywhere and will never buy them from anyplace else again. They come in different sizes according to your needs. Go by and check them out.

We hope you enjoyed our fashion show. We are not in any way affiliated with either Boomerang Tags or Tartan Scottie. We just wanted to show off our new finery and our favorite colours.

Happy Thursday,
Lilly, Piper, Carrleigh and Java

We buy our tags from Boomerang, too. They have the best tags we're found anywhere. The engraving doesn't wear off and they have group discounts because there are so many of us.

Your harnesses are very pretty.

BRUTUS said...

Love the harnesses! We are partial to certain kinds of plaid (did someone say Burberry??), but they all look so good on you! We especially like the celtic knots on Lilly - red looks so good on black dogs, doesn't it? I think the Scottie collar would be great for Java :)

Thanks for coming to see us this AM. If I were to try to get in one of the trucks Tom has built I would surely need a ladder! I have never been in a truck that Tom has built. I have seen them, but not in. I don't go to the shop very often. Now since I can not turn my head at all I don't go anywhere!

Wow, an Aberdeen tartan! That's very special. Lucky Piper. I mean I actually live in Aberdeen and I don't have one of those.
But I am a little concerned about the idea of giving Java the Scottie collar. Are you not worried about the possibility of a psychologically damaging identity crisis??
Cheers, H.

Absolutely dashing! I think I will get my peeps to get me a pink one too! Love the honorary scottie colar for Java.....toooo cute! If I got one of those tags, I could be a stealth more jangling tags to tell on me when I am up to something.
