Kate I know how you feel....I cleaned out my tack trunk at the barn a few weeks ago and found things in the bottom that I hadn't seen in years!! Old gloves, hair nets, horse treats, braiding supplies. Felt soooo good when that was clean.

I love Cooper's special lead from Beads on Leads. He was the green boy so the beads have an ever so slight greenish tiny but still go with the purple and gold. I think they're better for trained dogs though. The more traditional styles seems to hold up better for pulling puppies. The others I made myself because I couldn't get enough--and after ordering one, I realized I could probably do a better job myself.

Randomness, but I think I have a reason to get just 1 more lead. LOL.

What's the reason? I'm sure its justifiable

I checked out a bunch of show leads at a show yesterday...thought about getting one custom braided but I didn't even know where to begin with color combos/beads/anything (if you have suggestions for colors for a blonde golden LMK) Just ended up buying a nicer nylon set. I really want to try a chain but they didn't have any big enough to fit over Denver's head so I may order one.

I could see how easy it is to collect leads. They're all so different and pretty!

Meet Glee.

One of the names in the running is "Skylighted Irresistible Summer" (plus kennel name) because I completely did not intend to bring him home when I went out to fill out paperwork to sign off on the litter. He just was irresistible! LOL. He also flunked all but 1 quicky test I did. He's not food driven, has low retrieve drive to start with (he wants to have things in his mouth and is already carrying his dad's food bowl around so I do have something to work with, but the chase/prey stuff is low), point a finger in a direction he bites the finger...

But he has a beautiful natural stack and his overalls is what I like (blondie, big head, nice front, REALLY NICE REAR, big bone, very eager to please, etc). And he's crazy athletic and gutsy. At 2.5 weeks as soon as his eyes were open he was jumping out of the pool the breeder had the litter in and in the 2 days I've had him - he's jumping just because he can, and already trying to jump up onto the beds (which are way above his head!). This morning he was zooming around my room and his dad was lounging across his way? He jumped right over and kept running. And there's a lot of his dad (my Bertie) in him, including his ways of trying to get the other dogs to play with him. He goes strutting out there throwing his head and jumping around. He's also already sponging up all the obedience stuff. He's sitting and downing on hand signal, learning his spins, strutting next to me, etc... I mean, I just love everything about the little guy. >.< And that kinda led me into getting a pup even though it KILLED ME contemplating how complicated things will be with 3 dogs who are all actively "doing stuff". I'm still doing stuff with Bertie + I want him to still have a ton of individual time since he's such a mama's baby boy, Jovi's getting started in obedience competition this fall and he's showing in conformation and ready to really start winning out there, and I've said before and again that I'd prefer there to be at least 3 years between dogs just so they have the best chance of helping me with raising a puppy... and I just literally gave away all of Jovi's puppy supplies! So suddenly bringing a pup home was just crazy!!!! LOL.

Anyway.

I think Bubbaglee is going to need his own show lead.

Bertie's lead is the neutral/gold
Jovi's is the yellow/orange

I think the baby needs something green. Probably neutral/gold + green/gold beads. There's no rush on it since he wouldn't be showing for a while (and uh, I haven't started putting a regular puppy collar and leash on him yet for leash training), but am just saying I've been thinking on it already. LOL.

I've literally seen all kinds of colors being used in the ring, so color combinations and preferences are purely personal for most people.

Most popular ones I've seen lately through a friend is pink leads and purple leads (for goldens).

I like the neutral/tan/brown/yellow colors - along the lines of trying to get a lead that semi matches the dog's coat color. But then bling can be any color combination you like/want.
