Today's ARTSY FARTSY DUCK TAPE CREATION is from the paws of  Sugar.  You are definitely going to want to make one of these for yourself 'cause - as Sugar says "it's very simple and it will be a great use as an emergency collar . . . to put in our car."  And guess what??? You CAN make one!  Sugar has posted a tutorial for this super DUCK TAPE COLLAR on her blog!  We especially love the ARTSY hand-stamped paws all around the collar.  You could probably stamp your NAME and PHONE NUMBER on it, too, or any design you want!

Doesn't Sugar look bee-yoo-ti-ful in her DUCK TAPE COLLAR?
Thanks, Sugar, for sharing your super design with us and for showing us how to make one of our own!  Wow, we could make one in EVERY COLOR!  Think we're gonna need more DUCK TAPE!  Be sure to stop by Frankie's place to see today's DUCK TAPE IN ACTION entries!

And, now, for our ADOPTABLE DOG OF THE DAY for Mayzie's RESCUE ME HOME EVENT ~


This totally handsome dude is COOPER and he's adoptable through New Leash on Life in Chicago - which is Miss M's (Two Pitties in the City) alma mater!  You can probably guess which one of us picked Cooper for today's adorable adoptable - um, yeah, COOPER!  This cute guy in the picture and OUR Cooper sure have lots in common.  The first couple of sentences of his description would have described our Cooper when Mom found him wandering the the Piggly Wiggly parking lot - 

He's about 1 year old, 35 pounds (but needs to gain about 5-10 pounds). We're not quite sure what breed mix he is - he has characteristics of many!

Here's more about Cooper from his NLOL page -
We met Cooper on a recent trip to Animal Care and Control; he was an owner give-up and we found him cowering in the corner of his crate with his tail tucked, scared out of his mind. But he made great eye contact with our intake directors and pleaded with those big brown eyes to give him a chance, and are we glad we did! He warmed up quickly and within a matter of minutes his tail was wagging, he was chasing balls, and enjoying the TLC his new friends were giving him.

We don't think he's had any formal training, but he still walks amazingly well on a leash - he doesn't pull at all! He is young and energetic, so would greatly benefit from formal training to help improve his leash skills even more and teach him all of the basic commands. He is a quick study and is food motivated, so we know he'll excel in class. He learned "sit" during an adoption event and we're continuing to teach him new tricks. Cooper would be great for an active family without young kids who he could accidentally knock over. He is good with other dogs, and loves snuggling into a friend's lap. We'll continue to update his profile as we learn more about him, but in the meantime check out NLOL's facebook page for more pictures or contact us to meet sweet Cooper today!

We sure hope Cooper gets a great home and someone that loves to throw tennis balls for him!  Could that be you???

Hey Road Dogs!
Wow, what a great ducky tape entry! Sugar did a great job with that collar and yes, I'd love to have one. Maybe I'll give it a whirl this weekend. Boy, Cooper is really a cutie. I sure hope someone takes him soon and makes him part of their pack. :)

Your Momma is too funny. I bought that leash at Petco, probably over the springtime this year. It is absolutely fantastic!

Two Pitties in the City said...

So cool that you posted about Cooper! I have methim in person a couple of times, and he is so funny and goofy. I don't think it's in his description, but he makes the funniest Chewbacca noises. He has just been waiting and waiting for his very own home, so hopefully he can get one soon!

My Vickie wanted me to tell you to tell your dad that she is sorry she never got to work with him and Jake, especially cause Park City is so close to us.

My Vickies first dog Andy wasn't much for kids either. She totally understand not wanting to work without Jake cause it is a team sport. (ha ha) and it makes it so much nicer when you are working with a companion that is your best friend.

My Vickie has been talking about retireing from SAR in the last little while. I am getting a little worried she might be serious.

Ah well then.

Talk to you guys later. really good job on the duck tape week.

Best from Bert

And Cooper is SUCH a cute, happy little boy. I don't blame him for being skeered in that place. I'd be skeered, too! I'm so glad those peoples gave him a chance and I'm sending big brindle vibes that he'll get his furever and ever home real, real soon!
