Casey's Collars

Our family was blessed to have our girl Casey (lap-dog Doberman) with us for 7 years. She was taken from us way too early, and the pain of loosing her is just as raw 3 years later. In her honor, I've started making these dog collar sleeves.

In actuality, these collars are sleeves that slide over the collar you already have, with an opening for the metal leash ring. Four options to choose from: Style A) Fair-Isle (like the Spring Daisy below) B) attached flower (like the Picoted Purple Pansy below) C) embellished neckline (like the Rosy Loops) D) cable work (like the Cable Kisses below). Pricing is based on the width of your dogs collar and is follows:

XS - 5/8" $25
S - 3/4" $28
M - 1" $30
L - 1.25" $32
XL - 1.5" $33
XXL - 1.75" $35
XXXL - 2" $40

Let me know your dogs collar size and which option you'd prefer.
