It's not top-of-the-line by any stretch It's not something that would break when a dog pulls, but it's also not nice and soft and buttery, either. Right now it's VERY stiff and kind of dry. It probably needs conditioning more than anything. No idea if it's been used much, so it might break in well still, and it might not. The beading is at both the snap end and the handle end. What bugs me the most is the lacing on the edges. It makes the leash grippy, but it also hurts my hands. Considering I changed to leather because nylon hurts my hands, this leash is kind of pointless for me.

The hardware is silver colored - the pics are kind of yellow for some reason, so don't be fooled.

I measure the girth where the strap goes (just behind the front legs, or widest part of the chest), and then the chest where the front strap goes, just under where the neck attaches (low enough it doesn't choke the dog). The smaller one I have up *barely* fits Gavroche and he's 52 pounds and 22" tall, the larger one fits both my dogs and Logan is 73ish pounds and 26" tall. But measuring chest/girth are always best.

On that note, I found an AWESOME backpack at Petco the other day for under $10. <3

Can I perhaps get more pictures of 025, 053, 017?
If I get any of those ^ I would also be interested in the angry birds toy. (The angry birds toy is rubber, right?)

I'm interested in 024, the small backpack, and 046 the seatbelt. Do you take Paypal? If not, I'll check out the Amazon payment dealy.

I am interested in 027 and possibly 010, depending on how small you think it can go. My two are a lot smaller than Logan. Boone is 24" and 60 lbs, and he's super lean. Tempie is only 45ish lbs and.... I dunno, shorter than Boone. Ask CD. She's the same size and weight as Enzo. lol Either way, I think Boone is the only one it might fit.

ETA: I would also like to know if you would take Paypal.

I do not accept paypal. I got jerked around one too many times by them. I'll take Amazon payments/barter/check/money order.

Those of you that are interested in items, I'm going to send pics in just a few mnutes - have a bunch to upload so may actually be sometime in the next hour or so. Depends on how well my internet cooperates

MHMR I *think* Enzo has the size large, but I'm not certain. The website says girth size 32"-39". I'll try to measure it and let you know when I send pics. The front chest strap is what I had issues with - Logan is narrow so I had to have the chest on the smallest size and it was still looser than I would have liked.

MHMR, smallest the girth can possibly get is 30"

Everyone up to this point should have pics in their PM box by now. Let me know if you didn't get them, or if you have any problems, or if you want anything, or whatever else you might need to talk to me about Thanks!

Jess, both of those should fit Tempie. Enzo has the same sized vest, and it's a little loose on her, but not terribly. I think Labradors have broader chests than collies, so that may be why hers fits her better.

Enzo has a 15.5 inch neck too so the collar should fit as well.
