True Color Thursday – Silver and Small

This week’s challenge was to find something silver and miniature and then tell a story behind it.  Now, I looked in my curio cabinets, I looked in with my china and my silverware, and I didn’t have anything silver and miniature.

So then I looked at Finn.  She had a little silver on her!

I have already reported on Finn’s bling.  I couldn’t believe how much bling this gal was packing when she was a wee pup.  But I like her name tag especially.  The fake rhinestones, the pink bone, she’s a little princess all right!

And the story that goes along with it – – remember the first time you tried to put the collar on your dog? My husband would put it on Finn and she would go wild, trying to catch the bling in her mouth, try to wriggle out of it.  It was funny.  We would put it on, take it off, put it on.

Then I put the collar on.  And from there it stayed.  No real problems at all 🙂


I should probably start out by saying that I am a brand new pet-owner.  Growing up, I didn’t have any sort of pet – no dog, cat, hamster, rabbit, gerbil, ferret, anything.  I’m sure between the ages of five-ten I probably begged my parents to let me get one of something, but they said no.  It’s ok, I didn’t have any major emotional scarring from it  🙂

So, that being said, all these things that Finn’s going through for the first time, I am going through for the first time too!

During the week, the license from our county came, and I took off Finn’s collar to put it on.  I then noticed that my little puppy owned more bling than I did.  She’s got her license bling, her if-I-am-lost-scan-my-chip bling, her rabies bling and her I-am-one-day-old-and-a-girl-so Mommy-bought-me-a-faux-diamond-studded-name-plate bling…

…not to mention her blingy bling collar that we bought her because the first collar we bought her was too big!  (She’s on the last hole, a couple of more weeks and she’ll grow into the bigger one.)
All that being said, I’m thinking it’s time for Finn’s Momma to get some new bling too!  I’m a little jealous!!
