Sweater weather looms distantly in the future here — usually shows up around Halloween? I have posted things like this before, but who’s gonna stop me now? Conrad models sweaters so perfectly and professionally (kind of). I like to review his wardrobe periodically to give away stuff that doesn’t fit his ever-plumping weenie bod and see what new things I can add. So here’s some of what he has donned in the past!
You’ve seen Conrad quite a few times now in the Ruffwear Front Range Harness. There’s a reason–this is THE BEST harness Conrad wears. At $39.95, it is priced a little higher than many harness on the market, but so far I have found it is superior to those harnesses in every way. The harness is well made with durable materials and is easily adjustable, with straps adjusting in 4 different places. Conrad and I don’t exactly go on grueling hikes, but I have no doubt this harness would stand up in any terrain under any weather conditions. It is made to be worn outside, and I have no doubt it will last Conrad’s lifetime.
One of my favorite features of the harness is the adjustability. As you can see, I can adjust it enough to fit it over one of Conrad’s thick wool sweaters, which he wears frequently on our walks in winter. And then when the weather is warmer, I can adjust it back down to fit him again.
I probably even could have gone down a size, but I wanted a harness that would fit over his sweaters, that wouldn’t be a struggle to get on. He’s never fussed about wearing a harness, and he was no different about this one.
He runs around fine in it, too. It doesn’t restrict his movement in any way, substantial as it is. Another thing I love about this harness are the rich, bright colors it comes in. I really want the orange one for Conrad, too. I definitely recommend this harness for any dog, but especially if you and your dog spend a lot of time outdoors!
I’m taking a stand. Yes, Daylight Savings Time means more hours of light at the end of the day for those of us who ride after work. But my barn has arena lights.
I don’t like Daylight Savings. Waking up in the dark is hard. I want that extra hour of sleep back, and I want to walk my dog in daylight in the mornings.
I’m ready to fall back.
He got to wear his new collar from PS of Sweden. (Which, thanks to the Exquisite Equine, I now realize that Eli MUST have a matching browband!)
The froggy rope toy didn’t last long. Conrad also got a little bit of steak with his dinner. I’m not sure exactly how old he is because I adopted him from a shelter and he had been a stray, but my guess is he is about 5 years old now. And wow, I really need to take him to get his nails trimmed again!
