Chain Dog Collars Are Not For Small Dogs

For bigger dogs a regular collar might not be sufficient. Unless your dog is super obedient, chain dog collars are the best solution. You do not want to put one of these on small dogs since the collar itself may well outweigh your dog.

The Mule and the Horse

by Hc_07

You might even say he had his foot in the stirrup, to get into the drivers seat-allegorically speaking, ahead of time. At least that is how I feel about the whole thing.

Say what you will, but things are as they are, or was, back in those far-off days of yesteryear, I hold no grudges-save I had to live through it, but so did he...
