Birthday Give Away-Win a Day Dog Designs Collar

On April 15 Bob will be 6 years old.  A big and important birthday, after all Winnie the Pooh author A.A. Milne used it as the title of a book:

and a charming poem:

Now We Are Six - A.A. Milne

When I was one I had just begun

When I was two I was nearly new

When I was three I was hardly me
When I was four I was not much more

When I was five I was just alive
But now I am six, I'm as clever as clever;

So I think I'll be six now for ever and ever.

I personally can not quite believe Bob is 6, it seems just yesterday that he was the cutest little Bulldog baby:

Now of course he is all grown up

 and ready to be showered with presents and adoration at this years party. One of  Bob's gifts is going to be a new collar from Day Dog Designs.  We love these pretty and affordable collars and leashes. They are made out of beautiful European ribbons that the shop owner Terri has spent a lot of time carefully selecting.  The ribbons are unique and beautiful and of excellent quality.  Terri is a Cavalier owner and  donates to Lucky Star Cavalier rescue.   As the owner of four male dogs (and one female) I also really appreciate that Terri has great options for boys and girls, so many shops seem to cater primarily to the ladies.  Furthermore, if size is a concern then don't worry.  The collar's range from very small to XXL for big necked guys like Bob.   

Bob's birthday collar will be the fifth  Day Dog Designs collar I've purchased, there are so many cute designs that they are addictive!  The collars are comfortable and hardy, all of ours are in great shape even with dogs wear them nearly 24/7.   Ping has a charming Vienna inspired collar in black and white:

Last year Bob got one with a Viking pattern (went great with his dragon tag)

Just a few weeks ago Tubby got a Knights and Dragons print collar for his 12th birthday (here is a bit of an extreme close up of the collar in his puggie neck ruff).
However, my all time favorite Day Dog Designs purchase was the Outer Space collar and Leash I got Norbert for his 10th birthday

a perfect match for his Star Trek inspired ID tag from Fetching Pet Tags

 So you can see we have some beautiful collars from Day Dog Designs and the great news is now you can enter below to win your very own collar.  Since they have so many beautiful options you are sure to find something that matches you and your pup's interests and their personality.   Just complete the Rafflecopter entry below and you have a chance to win.  We will announce the lucky winner on April 15, Bob's 6th birthday.
