Done! Well, I actually did not make a collar but made a new lead for Zebo instead. I did this because I could not make an adjustable collar and as he is growing so quickly I would need to make a new one every week!! I will wait until his rate of growth has settled down and then I will do the collar. I will do a photo tomorrow for you - it has been a bit hectic here today and yesterday.

Last evening it was the first class at Puppy Prep School !!! He had not met any dogs since leaving his litter mates and mum 7 weeks ago and the pleasure I got from watching his reaction to seeing his seven new class-mates as they entered the room was beyond description. He could not believe what he was seeing!! Laughing He was ecstatic! Very Happy Very Happy I am sure he was as proud of his new lead. Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy

Well yes, I can understand your decision not to make a collar until Zebo has grown up and the size of his neck has stopped changing every 2 minutes!!! Laughing

I am looking forward to seeing photos of your lead! During the workshop organized by my dog club, a friend made leads for his two Staffies, and they are really nice. I have yet to learn how to make those, but there should be a 2nd workshop organized in June, so I will probably attend it and make leads for the girls (matching their collars of course Wink ).

Here are the leads for Jayna and Louna the Staffies:

As for Puppy School, I can just imagine your Zebo meeting all those puppies of his age!!! I still remember how Foxie used to enjoy going there and how much I loved it too.

Specially for you, Nina, Photographed on my kitchen table. Smile I found the most difficult part was completing the Box knot before completing the hand-hold. - More practice needed!

And whilst I am writing this, Zebo is fast asleep in the kneehole of my computer table! He has had his walk and then devoured his lunch and now is enjoying his little nap. Smile

What a lovely photo, bless him.

And, wow, what a neat lead. I shall add it to my list of things to do on a rainy day (except housework. Wink )

Oh! that's a really great looking lead, congratulations! (I like the background too! Laughing Have you spotted the Ardeche department on the map?...) My friends at the dog club who made leads used a different method to make the handle, as you can see on my pics.

Zebo looks really sweet, sleeping under your computer table!
