The Personal Flotation Device from Paws Aboard arrives!
What a commotion when the UPS truck pulls into our driveway! Spike and Janie are loud enough. Add Bridget’s high-pitched bark, no. . . scream . . . and it’s a wonder the guy stops to drop off the package. Anyway!
Spike models for us!
The opening of a package adds to the excitement. Spikey was thrilled to be chosen as the test model. I put him up on the bed and he stood very still while I strapped it on. Then I carried him outside for a photo shoot. (No, I didn’t carry him by the handle.)
I’m concerned about the fit.
What do you think? The strap in the front across his chest is tightened as much as possible. Ditto for the straps that go under his belly.
I don’t like the way the front tabs are floppy and the whole vest slides.
The construction of the vest is obviously good quality and the appearance is snazzy. I like the neon yellow. But if it doesn’t fit right . . .
Do you see a potential problem here?
Is this how it’s supposed to fit?
It looks too close to me. How’s he going to urinate without making a mess on the life jacket? If the jacket rides back, it could chafe him or worse.
It might fit Bridget.
I doubt it though because her back is not quite as long as Spike’s. I’d try it on her right now, but she’s being very skittish — WHAT ELSE IS NEW — so I’ll put it on her tomorrow.
I’ll probably have to send it back.
Ever notice how things that should be simple can get complicated real fast? Well, if that’s the worse complication I have this week, my life is pretty darn good. No complaints here.
