When you call it a collection, it's NOT Garbage!
My name tag booty - old and new!
I don't know about your dogs - but my dogs have a very bad habit of continually losing their name tags. So when I find name tags when we're out walking - I pick them up and take them home and reuse them - I just put stickers over the original dog's name with my dogs' names and stick them on my dog's collars. Otherwise I'd be spending a lot of money on name tags.
It came in handy recently when a friend of mine - Leah, who owns Abby the husky and Hutch the st bernard who go to Seaview park a lot put a lady in touch with me who was looking for dog supplies for a movie that's in town shooting - the "BTK killer" movie" - the movie about that serial killer from Kansas who was also an animal control officer after he was finished being a serial killer - who really liked being an animal control officer because he got to torture and kill animals as part of his job.
Kelli - the lady who was doing the props, needed a lot of dog tags, because the guy appareantly kept the tags from the dogs he killed as souvenirs. So I rounded up all my tags and lent them to her - that's what the picture above is - she gave them back to me yesterday.
The neat thing is that she also gave me back the tags that she made for the movie - so I got 10 extra tags back! What a score! I'm the luckiest girl in the world! As a thank-you she said that she'd also bought the Dartmouth SPCA 2 large dog carriers, collar and given them some cash too - so that was extra sweet to hear. I'm sure it'd be a kick in the pants to the serial killer guy if he knew!
