We have some decisions to make. Mom ran across an interesting article regarding some collars that are being sold. Oh these aren't just ANY collars! Take a look at this one:
This particular collar belonged to a Pug who was owned by the Duchess and Duke of Windsor a long, long time ago. There is an auction for items like this in New York City which will be held to coincide with the Westminster Kennel Club's All Breed Dog Show in February, at Bonhams Auction House. The one pictured above is expected to sell for at least $3,000.00. HOLY HUSKIES! That's alot of money! This got us thinking. We have some of our old collars lying around. We asked Mom to dig them out of storage (she keeps everything "just in case"). We need to put ours up for auction. We need to decide how much they're worth. Here's Meeka inspecting his:
"I dunno. I kinda liked this one"
Here's Shadow. Does this photo not scream "Please buy me!" :
"Isn't it pretty? It's pink! "
And here I am calculating net worth:
And here's Shyla hoping Mom won't find her. She was napping in the sun:
Shyla doesn't have any extra collars since she's the new kid on the block. She was dumped at the shelter with an ugly black collar that was frayed and dirty. Certainly not fit for a girl as pretty as she! Mom assured her she can keep her bewootiful turquoise blue collar that she wears proudly. A handsome new collar with shiny tags is a big deal to a dog who was not previously loved or appreciated. To them it signifies that they are home where they belong and loved for who they are.
I'm going to have Mom give the auction coordinators a call to find out where we need to ship our collars. I'm sure they'll be thrilled to have them. What a wonderful way to raise money for those nice folks at Best Friends Animal Society! We can donate our proceeds to them!
