It was bath day and Capone, Lo and I headed to our local PetSmart yesterday for some good ‘ol bathtime. I really like that they have an amazing pet washing center that’s really convenient for big doggies that don’t want their baths outside with garden hoses and only the option of really cold water. Capone just isn’t a fan of water to begin with (unless it comes out of a water fountain) and when he feels the lukewarm water, he relaxes and seems to enjoy himself a lot. Not to mention my tub is just way too small and I don’t have a removable shower head. So Petsmart is now our bi-weekly outing either on Tue or Thursday whenever Lily is in preschool. One less child makes a world of a difference!
He enjoys any outing really, especially since he loves sticking his head out of the window of the car, but especially to any pet-related location. The employees are starting to recognize him at the PetSmart store and Capone makes sure that he goes up to every employee there to get love (especially since he knows they all wear treat bags so he can show them his best “sit”).
While on our way to the grooming center, one of the employees that we had met the last time we were there, let us know that they had gotten some really cute leather collars in that week including blue leather ones. I had been looking for a blue leather collar for Capone now that the one he has fits him a bit snug. I promised to take a look and we went to go get beautiful 🙂
Oh but first things first.. we had to stop by the rodent section. The boys are obsessed with any rat-like creature and who could blame them.. the hamsters and chinchillas were so precious!! Something about their beady little eyes make them so adorable. Logan laughs his head off whenever he sees them in the hamster wheels. Capone just stares and tries to follow the very fast critters..
They were fast little guys!
Once we were all done we stopped by to check out the collars. I’ve been meaning to get Capone a nice heavy-duty collar but can never find one that has the double stitch detail, the right thickness, and that is the nice navy blue that I’m looking for. Also, is it me, or do all the thick heavy collars all HAVE to have spikes on them? Or some sort of ominous looking grommets that would look more appropriate on a biker helmet? Lo and behold, we reach the collar aisle and wow, it’s truly a collar aisle!
Capone liked how the metal collars sounded when they clinked together. He kept pushing them with his nose 🙂
After a few glances at the different collars I found it.. the perfect blue, leather, double stitched extra long collar that I’d been looking for!
This particular Petsmart has a vet office in their store so I love having the option of being able to weigh Capone anytime I want to instead of having to make a trip to my vet since I can no longer carry Capone and find that out for myself on my home scale. And the survey sayyyyyyyss…….
He broke 100!! To think that Capone is going to outweigh me in 15 pounds is kind of crazy and awesome at the same time!
When we got home I couldn’t wait to put on his new collar 🙂
Leather smells good!
How do I look??
Woof Woof! Love, Capone
