More winter night walks . . .
Sunday, December 08, 2019
Yesterday we invested in a new winter jacked for DH -- it's a kind of deep golden retriever colour! His old one just wasn't working for him -- the duffle coat style buttons kept slipping out of their loops undone and the Velcros no longer held properly either. The new one has a both zipper and snaps, also deep pockets and a good hood. He's very happy with it and it looks very good on him. Chose the XL -- DH is a tall guy, not at all a fat guy, but the XL size gives the needed sleeve length and extra ease over a sweater or jacket too.
AND we also found an LED/reflective leash for Henry -- much sturdier than his dainty puppy leash that matched his old collar and was looking pretty silly for his current sturdy size. This new leash has a padded handle, reflective white strips and lights up bright blue; can be recharged with an included port connector and really improves our after-dark visibility!
Our debut test night walk of the new jacket and leash last evening was quite satisfactory!!
We haven't got any Christmas lights up yet . . . but I don't really think that "light-up" Henry is a reasonable substitute!! Maybe today?? Weather is relatively mild, we shall see!!
