:bg I want to order a new Classy Critter Collar.... but I'm having a hard time deciding on one!! :chk

I have a new tag on the way
http://www.etsy.com/listing/58974494/th ... =&includes[0]=tags&includes[1]=title
and I wanted a nice new collar to go with it :ROFL:

Typically I only go for pinks or purples for Maddie... but I wanted something a little different this time.

The problem is, I want them all :gig

Suggestions, anyone?? :hp

Oh, my favorite thing, shopping for collars!

Maddie would look beautiful in:

Court (Maroon, Red, or Jade)
Bling (Mint or Mocha)

Those are my suggestions but she would look very pretty in anything else. I don't know which ones you already have.

Good luck and show us pictures when you have the collar please!

:bg my favorite thing, too! Thanks so much for the suggestions!! :joy

I never was really crazy about red, but now that you mention it, it probably would look good on Maddie. I really like the maroon one.

But I like the Mint and Jade as well... :gig I'm sure you understand my dilemma! I have to keep this order down to at least two, though :ROFL:

We have other colors in that style too. I absolutely love them. The apple green one is my non cocker girl who is more of a red buff color. Its really pretty on her

:shock: I really like the apple green one! And what's the one next to it? The jade-ish and purple one?

Maddie currently has a rose baroque (my favorite!), and a pink star one.
Also, I had a custom pink & brown star one, but I let it go with one of my fosters because it suited her so well :hp

Below green apple is the topaz. Above it is teal. Each using the beads in the festival

We just got the Pink festival and Peach, both made the same way. They are gorgeous too.

It is sooooo difficult to narrow down your choices for collars. I just bought 9 collars and before they even came I was already thinking about the next order. :goof

And then I'd probably start thinking of customized ones I'd *have* to have :ROFL:

Here are some pictures of Rudy in some of his collars.

Vanity : Cream with White Accents...this looks AWESOME on all dogs! I've seen it on multiple colored cockers, and not one looked bad!
Image

HI Dana!!!

I have to warn you... I starting buying Erika collars BEFORE I got Chessie! :gig Chessie has four collars in her current size. (she's already outgrown 2 -Pot of Gold & a Baseball collar) She currently has Pink Bling, Scarlet (with hot pink accents) Vanity, Purple Knight, Gold Diva. Since Chessie is still young and has a lot of markings I tend to prefer more solid colors and narrow collars. But a buff can get away with just about anything! I love anything Vanity! These collars are just stunning! Turquoise looks wonderful on a buff dog since your thinking of trying something new. I also really like Winter Jewels hmmmmmmmmmm.....

If you would like to see the quality and what they look like in person, I'd be happy to meet up with you... just PM me!

:ROFL Oh, yes... you guys really helped me narrow it down!! :ROFL: :ROFL: :tg


I really like the Mint or Sage Vanity. I like the cream but I'm afriad we won't be able to keep it white :gig so I marked that one off the list...
I really really like Black Festival (with purple). I just *have* to have that one LOL. Even though I was trying to stay away from purple... some habits are too hard to break
I also like Maroon Court, and Apple Green court. I was thinking IF I get a greenish Vanity, then I'll go with the maroon...
I like the Jade and Wine Baroque... Actually I like a lot of the collars of that type, too... the rose baroque that I have already is one of my favorites. Actually, I was thinking about the Wine Baroque with alternating the silver and gold colored beads. Strange, I know :raz

If I can narrow it down to three, it'll be a miracle. :neen


and Lisa... we really should meet up sometime, we're so close! :wv Maddie would like that, too!

Don't worry about washing the collars....I soak them in a mild mixture of Simple Green when they get dirty and hang them to dry overnight. Like new and keep looking like new!

I'm keeping a Red-Buff this weekend, for a friend : so I'll see if she will fit in some of Rudy's Collars & see what looks best. I have 5 to choose from.

I think Dani suggested some awesome ones.
