Night time adventures

How do you all get on with your walks in the dark? Today mum got me yet another collar that lights up and she was muttering to day that this must be about the 6th or 7th one so far this winter. They work for a short while and then decide to stop working.....OK, OK, OK perhaps me having my nightly dips in the stream don't help the flashers but mum ain't happy.

What do you all do when it's dark and you need to go and do your business? Anyone got any good ideas for collars that are stream proof?

Hi Ho Loui,

You know, my mom keeps us in a crate all night so we don't go out until they let us out in the morning. It works out really good, well except for Annie. They do not crate her because she doesn't like it so once in a while she will leave a "present" by the front door. ;)

do you know why the lights on your collar stop working?

Loui,
My mom has me on a leash when I do my nightly pee-pee, but wants to get me a lighted collar anyway. Miss Sunshade suggested using a mountain climber's light attached to the collar, or a bicycle light (you can see her comment on my blog under my Disappearing in the Dark entry).

Thanks for your suggestions but mum has tried all these! The big cyclists light kept falling off and the other lights keep stop working as I love to go in the stream. We have had the flashing collars too....still, it's nearly summer!

My Mom used to put me in a shirt with a reflective patch on it.

i just run around my back yard at night, so I don't have to endure flashy things!

Loui Loui,

As a couple of my pals have mentioned, I have a mountain climbing "head light". This one won't fall off I guarantee you since the light comes attached to an elastic band. It can't fall off unless the elestic band is cut.

I too went through a gazillion pet light up collars, but you're right, they just stop working plus they never showed that well in my curls. So mum just bought me this mountain climbing light from a mountain climbing store. I have had it for over a year now!!

Come check out my blog, I'm making a post just for you!!!

Love nibbles,
Miss Sunshade

My Mummy does as Buster's Mum does. She has a torch with her when we walk in the dark and scarey fields, so when she shines it at me a light up like a beacon! I try me best to run away really fast...but she always manages to make me glow like a right silly sausage!
