Homeward Bound Gear

When I brought Tess home, all she had was a leash, collar that was too big, a crate that she wouldn't use, a brush that she was afraid of, bowls, and cheap-ish food.
                                                                                                   

Fast forward 4 years and the girl has more clothes than I do!  She's got snoods, sweaters, jackets, and tutus.

We sometimes now struggle to keep it all corralled and organized!

What did kind of "stuff" did you bring your pooch home with?  How has that list changed over time?

  1. Both Ray and Julius came to me with the fur on their back and in Ju-Ju's case, even that wasn't much. They now have delicious and nutrishous food, jars of treats, a BarkBox each month, a drawer in the kitchen desk full of food puzzles, a bin for just antlers and another one for kongs. They have a bar in the back closet for just their coats and other clothing as well as an extensive collection of collars. (Although the majority of the collars and most everything else are Ray's...Juli has little brother hand me downs.) I believe there are 7 mats to choose from to rest on. I think there are 6 leashes. That might be the extent of it. :-)

    1. Yep, that all sounds about right!! I love how spoiled your boys are...and that Julius gets hand-me-downs!! Do you think he'll always be smaller than Ray or do you think he'll surpass him

    2. Julius is approximately 10 months old now. His legs seem longer than Ray's and is neck is longer, so if you look at them from the front (like when they are greeting me at the door) Julius is taller. However, his back is not as tall because Ray's torso is thicker. That's really why I consider him "smaller."

  3. Haha, the photo comparisons made me laugh. Kaya was just handed to me with one of those cheapo nylon vet leashes from the shelter so I went straight to the pet store and picked up a collar, leash, toys and food. Ya, our collection of dog items has escalated too and I feel like I practice a lot of self control! Norman was given to me with a giant tire toy. He never touched it. I think they thought he might have been a lot tougher than he was:/

  4. Hmm...I also see a human green hoodie in these photos. How funny would it be to have them walking together in matching outfits?

    1. Yes, that's happened. Slightly embarrassing when someone notices...

  5. When I brought Boomer home he didn't even have a collar and leash, I had to go buy them. While Dottie at least came with a smallish collar that she outgrew in a matter of days. But now they have several collars, brushes and shampoos and of course Dottie has a Tiennot Kints sweater.

  6. Both boys came with zilch! Not even a collar! Now, like yours, they have their own closet! Darn, we had to shop!!!
