Metro Pets

By Sharon Gomes Thomas

Are you an optimist or a pessimist? Is the glass half empty or half full? Is it late Winter or early Spring? Ià¢â‚¬™d like to think that March is early Spring, so that I can start thinking of bright colors to chase the winter blahs away. Also, I have a very energetic dog, and as much as my Irish Setter loves frolicking in the snow, I hate trudging around in the slush to take her on her daily walks.

Something that will brighten our walks is the Flower Power Retractable Leash. You can get it from In The Company Of Dogs (, a great site. You can also get their catalog sent to you. In bright green or orange, the leash is designed in France, extends up to 16 feet (perfect for hyper hounds like mine) and is recommended for dogs up to 25 pounds.

Another cute leash is the St. Tropez Step-In Harness. There is no fussing with buckles or adjustments, simply slide the pretty bone or heart ornament to secure the straps and customize the fit. Tres Chic!

And why should your pooch have all the fun of showing off? In The Company Of Dogs have great T-shirts and sweatshirts for you too. I like their My Dog Digs Spring Thermals à¢â‚¬” great to pull on for those chilly Spring jaunts to the dog park.
