The Mod Dog of the month



















Name: Paisley

Breed: Isabella/Tan Dapple Dachshund

Age: 1 1/2 Years

Collar: Duck Season

More About Paisley: "  He does love to play fetch and is currently enrolled in an obedience class where he is progressing nicely.

Paisley's Favorite Things:  Early morning is Paisley's favorite time of the day when he comes in my room and after a few attempts, jumps up on my bed and buries himself in my covers.  He makes a great foot warmer. Paisley doesn't really have a favorite toy because he never has a particular toy very long before he destroys it.

The Mod Dog of the Month




Sorry everyone, I am still so behind on this, so don't think you didn't win if it's been months since you entered.


Name: Tank

Breed: Saint Bernard

Age: 3 Years

Collar: Dino Dog

More About Tank: "I have had him since he was a puppy and he is very laid back and just an all around cool dog. His favorite thing to do is to run while I am on my roller blades and he aspires to one day catch the squirrels in our trees, he spends hours at the bottom of the tree gazing up in all hopes the squirrels will fall." -Kali

Tank's Favorite Things: "His favorite toy is the reason I bought this collar. He carries around a stuffed blue dino all the time, he uses it as a pillow when he sleeps, and he won't set it down for even a minute, he even carries it around when he is outside, just always hugging it and laying on top of it. We all laughed so hard when we put the collar on because it was so adorable to see such a massive dog in such a cute collar. " -Kali

The Mod Dog of the Month


Sorry everyone, I am so behind on this, so don't think you didn't win if it's been months since you entered.

Name: Friday

Breed: Blue Heeler (Australian Cattle Dog)

Age: 5 Years

Collar: Subway Window

More About Friday : "She is a rescue dog. I found her online through an agency that saves dogs from high-kill shelters in the South and brings them to New England to foster them while finding their forever homes. She had been abused and was found abandoned in Tennessee. Working dogs like Cattle Dogs frequently are found in shelters, as the original owners may not have known how much constant training/jobs these the dogs need. I am a single woman who works at home (I am an artist) and thought I would be the right candidate to become her new mom and offer her a safe place to live with lots of attention and lots of room to run on my property on Cape Cod. She came to me with plenty of issues, but with love and training, she has become the most important being I have ever been lucky enough to have in my life (I even built my house just for her, going as far as to set a dedication to her in the concrete just inside the front door.)." -Jennifer

Friday's Favorite Things: Her favorite toy is an elk antler chew toy. Her favorite treat is roasted squash skin (good for her too!)

Mod Dog of the Month



Name: Lemon Drop

Age: 2 years 6 months

Breed: beagle

Favorite toy: tennis ball/chuck it - he can play for hours and won't stop, he is totally fixated with it.

More about Lemon Drop: "I am not sure what lemon drop's story was before I adopted him other than the fact that he was surrendered to the government kennels which terminate animals after 4 days. Luckily Hong Kong Dog Rescue took him in and I adopted him July 2008. He is such a friendly dog and I couldn't imagine life without him now. These days he is most happy when he is either playing chuck it, riding in the car with the wind in his face or eating."

Support Haiti Disaster Relief


100% of the proceeds of the sale of each of these collars will go to Haiti disaster relief to the American Red Cross. I want to sell as many as possible to help this cause. If you don't want to buy the collar for your own dog, please consider giving it as a gift.

twit⋅ter: to utter a succession of small, tremulous sounds, as a bird.

This cheerful 1" traditional buckle collar features blue birds tweeting on a light lime green background. It is backed with a heavy nylon webbing and a strong plastic side release buckle and a D-ring for attaching tags. All collars are fully adjustable and triple stitched at stress points to prevent breaking and prolong durability.

1 year warranty on repairs unrelated to pet or owner misuse and on all metal hardware.

The Mod Dog of the month Runner Up (from November...better later than never)



Name: Normy

"She's called Normy because when we got
her she was 10 Kilo's overweight and my 4 yr old son said 'Woah Mummy she's
'normous!!!' 'Normous' was shortened to Normy and that's what stuck... Poor
thing!"

Breed: Weimaraner

About Normy: She was 2.5 yrs old when we rescued her and was a real handful.. She had a very very strong hunt drive and a big fear aggression and guarding problem when we were out and about, there were a number of occasions I had to wrap her lead around a tree just to hang on to her. We live in the country and she basically went wild for nearly a year then gradually, started to accept us as her new family and today (2 years on after a lot of blood sweat and tears of frustration!!!) she is the most WONDERFUL, gentle dog I could ever have dreamed of owning. She will always keep me on my toes but I wouldn't have it any other way, she's exciting but an absolute joy to train and work with now. Normy looks after us all beautifully and is an absolute
angel with children.
