My Dogs Sleep Naked

017 019

Yep, that’s right. It’s true. Every night before bed,  their collars come off. Which means every morning when I come downstairs, there’s two little wiggle worms doing the naked puppy dance, waiting to line up and get dressed before going outside. As much as they like their collars coming off at night, they look forward to them going back on in the morning. Their harnesses……..not so much, but since they don’t have a fenced yard right now, it’s a necessary evil.

The leash can’t be clipped to their collars. Tempest walks great on a leash, until something catches her attention – then she pulls with such force that she chokes herself – and she’s so stubborn that she’ll just keep pulling. Sully suffers from neck-bigger-than-head syndrome, which is exactly like it sounds. His head, being smaller than his neck, makes it very easy for a snug fitting collar to slip off whenever the collar is pulled in that direction. The leashes are necessary because as the bi-bosses of the universe, they’re quite sure that it’s unnecessary for them to take any suggestions about where they should not go.

This weekend we took them to King Phillip Conservation Land in Sudbury, MA. It’s a nice stretch of woods where you could easily get lost among the labyrinth like trails snaking in every direction. It’s a great place to let the pups get in touch with their wild side, an obstacle course of fallen trees to leap over, stone walls to climb, and feral scents to detect. I love watching them dart about like the little wolves they are, fearless and brazen as they conquer yet another slice of the world. I wish I could let them roam naked and free on their adventures, but what would the neighbors think?   😉

  1. Dogs should have some time and a place to run free, it’s kids that should be on leashes. 😉

  2. I really enjoyed your blog about your pups! I have 8 dogs of varying sizes in our household and their collars also come off at night. An important part of the start to their day is to get them cipped back on in the mornings! When I let them out for toilet at night they also have little flashing coloured lights (made specially for dog collars by Rogz) that get attached to their collars so that I can keep an eye on them in the dark! The attaching of these little lights are a little ceremony and met with great excitement!
