So, I followed everyone's advice and picked out some "macho" neckwear for Dutch's birthday. I know you're probably wondering what's "macho" about a sparkly, baby blue collar. Well, not a whole lot, I guess. But it's definitely more macho than his pink Princess collar.
The cool thing about the sparkly collars is they're made out of vinyl, which means they can go swimming and not get icky. My human says the first one Dutch had lasted about 2 years before it started to get icky, so he should be good on collars until his 11th birthday.
I reminded my human that getting nothing but collars for your birthday is lame, so we got Dutch some other stuff too. Like salmon skins from Pugnacious, the world's largest Tooble, and a very cute, somewhat macho squeaky chicken from a place called George.
The macho chicken really can't compete with Henrietta, but I think it's pretty cool. Dutch played with it for about 20 minutes straight before it finally got stuck under the couch (and my human left it there because the squeaking was starting to drive her nuts).
Pret-ty cool birthday if you ask me. And it got even better when we met up with friends at Pug Sunday. But I don't want to make anyone totally jealous, so I'll let Dutch tell you about it later this week. It's been awhile since I let him talk anyway.
