Default Blue or red?

I finally found a vest that will work well with Logan's harness. Now the question is...what color?

I usually put Logan in red, as it seems to go well with mostly-black dogs. I really like blue, too, but I generally associate it with yellow/sable dogs. Right now he has a backpack/saddlebag thing that works with his harness, and it's lime green. The red vest is bright red, and the blue is more of a royal blue.

I won't be ordering the vest for a few weeks yet, but I found some cool white leather chain martingales that I'm considering, and the chain comes in cool colors. I want the color to match the vest, so blue or red. Or I might get a plain choke chain in red, blue, white or black (probably white if I go with that). Or I might wait and get a brown/brass martingale.

Logan:

(Yes, it's an old picture and I didn't even take it, but I'm too lazy to go downstairs and get my camera to get pics off the SD card, and this one shows his color pretty accurately as well as his markings. His black is very much true, solid black now, though.)

I like blue for SDs, it's visible without attracting a ton of attention, and it's visible to people with red/green color blindess. Okay. That's a weird thing to worry about, but one of my really good friends has it so it's always in my mind when thinking of color schemes/colors for public stuff.

But, Logan does look really good in red.

I think you should go with blue, then get custom embroidered patches of this shape in white.

You know me too well!

There's actually a timey-wimey collar from Ella's Lead that I REALLY REALLY REALLY want to get Logan for Christmas (or for my birthday lol), ideally in blue leather. So there's also that...

I just made this. I must find someone who can make me a custom patch for a reasonable price...I actually may have a few other people who would like one, too.

Beans on toast is what made this nation great! I like it with ham and mixed herbs, or chilli sauce, or cheeeeese, or mmmmmm I want.

Or you could add bacon (back not streaky!), fried eggs, sausages, mushrooms, tomatoes and have a full English ... But then you'd need brown sauce

Can you tell I'm on a diet?

I almost put eggs on it for lunch, but I didn't have time to make eggs, so it was just beans and toast. Screw ramen noodles, this is much cheaper, much better, and fortunately much healthier.
