My baby blondie turned 8 years old yesterday and to celebrate I went to Target and bought bouncy balls (4) and a furry rat and I saw a little collar and bow tie on sale and thought that would be cute for a picture. Nonni wore that Elizabethan collar, so a simple Velcro collar will be a cinch. He wore the collar for hours, no problem. He was running all over the house chasing the bouncy balls. It was sheer delight seeing him so active and happy!
