This is a picture of my guinea pig Gina wearing a purple party hat on a policeman's body. The policeman is holding a phallic shaped donut hole while preparing to kick a goldfish and a helicopter piloted by a monkey flies around his head.
I bet none of you has anything like this.
All kidding aside I want to talk about these pronged collars. People who haven't used one think they are mean or cruel. I want to tell you the truth.
If anyone remembers my past Camera Critters posts, you know how much trouble I've had calming down my 5 month old puppy, Hannah.
At one point last week, I was so upset over her seemingly inability to learn to stop jumping and pulling, I was reconsidering our decision to get her. And keep her. She had actually bruised my arm pretty badly with her "rambunctiousness."
As a last resort I went to a local pet store and bought one of these. These may look mean, but the prongs are not all spiky and painful. In fact I put in on my own arm to test it. It was fine.
Immediately she walked nicely. Immediately she stopped jumping and pulling. Immediately she would let strangers walk up and pet her. Even giggling neighbor kids.
I don't have a picture of her wearing this, but I felt the need to tell everyone.
