My New Collar

Hi everyone!  It's me, Mitch!

Dad has an Amish friend and his name is Tim and he made me this beautiful tan leather collar with turquoise stones in it!

I'm not eating mom's pretty pink peonies. I'm just sniffing them to see it they're good enough to eat!
Mom and I have decided that we'd like to have a give-away.   
Tim makes these collars in both black and tan leather and he uses turquoise stones, like I have on my collar, and he also has red, blue, green, mango, pink,and purple stones!
If you would like to participate in this give-away, leave us a comment and you will be counted. Mom and I have chosen a number from one to 100 and the doggie sitting in that spot in our comment section will win a collar handmade by Tim.   The winner can choose either a black or a tan leather and either turquoise or any color stone that we mentioned above.   We'lll be getting back to you on Friday and letting you know who wins one of these gorgeous handmade collars!

So until next time...............

Yer friend,
Mitch

That's such a beautiful collar. If we happen to be in the right spot, we'd pay for a second collar since our mom insists on dressing us alike (you may have noticed!).

A long long long time ago, our mom's grandfather (our great-grandfather) had a dry goods store in New Holland, Pennsylvania, and most of hus customers were Amish. When he died, many of his customers came to his funeral in Philadelphia in their buggies. It was very touching to see them there.

Wirey love,

Jake and Just Harry

LOVE THE COLLAR! The flowers are beautiful!

We love your new collar and Ruairi could certainly use a new one - Mom is getting tired of trying to hook his leash to a "puppy" collar.

Bocci said...

Oh my gosh! That is one gorgeous collar, Mitch! (And your Mom's flowers do look good enough to eat :-) )

And Parental Unit says, "what a great way to choose a winner, she'll steal that idea for the next time we do a give-a-way!"

Your buddy,
Bocci

We love turquenite!
I wanted to buy such a collar in an Indian Shop in Californien in last autumn. If nothing has found, unfortunately.
A great new blog-background!
Lots of love

Mitch, you look very dashing with your new collar, a dog among pups. And Mom agrees with Jazzi about the M & M collar, though it would melt quickly in this desert heat. Hope all is well.
