  • St. Ben Special

    Ok so its not really a creative groom but I dident ken where else to put it.
    One of my clients has a Saint Ben that the wife loves having pink bows, cutsie stuff etc,,, I carry some really "exsclusive" collars(say that all posh like...lol) that you cant get anywherelse in the UK, & there was a pink Lepoard print one in there her husband wanted to get for her.... but.. It wasent big enough.. He was very disapointed of course because his wifes been trying to find something more girly for Gizzmo for years & he though he would suprise her..but nothing fits her except those black leather studded collars that look anything but girly...
    Anyways I told him I would custom make her one as long as he was willing to pay for the work (I used to do a lot of leatherwork) which he was..
    So heres the finished collar (that my Mastiff modling it for the photo)
    its hair on cowhide, dyed pink with Dimonties (sp?) and about 2.5" wide with a half choke (you just cant find buckles fer this kinda stuff)
    Gizzmos coming in tomorow & he dosent know I have it done yet so it will be a good suprise (the extra bill to LOL)

    Ill get a pix tomorow with it on her

              Cool!

              That is some collar! Nice job! She looks absolutely adorable in pink. Every girl could use something a little "girly" once in a while. I bet you they want another collar for her soon...you know girls get tired of the same old thing after a week..lol

                It looks very nice on her. My word that is one BIG St. Bern.

                Tell Tam, don't worry not too many people will see you in pink; you know only hundreds of groomers around the world hee heee. We love ya Tam way to be a good sport.

                  At £80 a collar I think theyll make do for a bit longer than a week LOL
                  this is a better pix for size, She looks massive, bigger than my Tam but weight wise shes actully not much heaver.. Tams much more solid built .
                  shes a lot taller but a lot of thats fur to..
                  im 5'10" for comparison

                      Dang girl she is still way big. She is very beautiful. Looks like she is well behaved, I would hope so anyway. I have a friend who always had St.'s they were such loves, but not as big as her. Did ya hear anything from the owners?

                        Im guessing shes about 160 lbs (give or take) but very "Big" frame, she looks huge next to my Mastiff even though weightwise there not so far apart..
                        very good girl, hops up in the bath & up on my table.. even posses fer Photoes She had Christmas photoes done and got tattos as part of it...

                          Girl, you need to start making those collars and selling them out of your store. That was just so perfect for that pretty, plus- sized girl. Great job and I hope your wallet is well padded for your work!

                            There is a specialty leather shop in town that makes great pink leather collars, some with spikes, some with charms like a big charm bracelet, etc. my friend who has a bull mastiff gets lots of girly stuff like that there. How fun!! Just love the one you did for her!! Don't she "feel pretty, oh so pretty, she feels pretty and witty but Tam feels gay... " teeheehee

                              Im thinking of offering "custom made collars" that way I dont have a bunch I spent a lot of time making that dont fit the dogs that want one.. Not sure,.. gotta make Tam & Ace there own (& Tam will be happy to know his wont be a pink poofter collar LOL)
                              Was thinking of putting on ebay (big dogs only type shop) but I dont know how many people with big dogs would be willling to spend £80 for a collar & I wouldent sell them cheaper than that (for that size)
