Goodness! Am I late in posting this edition of Happy Pets or what? Summertime is hectic at times and I really need to get more organized apparently. I have such a wonderful group of customers for my Crazy For Collars and just love receiving photos of their fur babies wearing their new neckwear.
Here are just a few of the photos I have received lately. Enjoy these sweet pets!

Thank so all of the wonderful pet owners for sharing these photos with me and my readers!

I love it when packages of ribbon arrive on my doorstep! All the colorful rolls of different sizes and designs just make me smile!

So when these two new boxes arrived, I looked around at my studio and decided that I need more ribbon storage!

I love these little racks that hang on the wall, but they are nearly full and I haven't been able to locate more of them. Plus, my really large spools/rolls do not fit on the narrow wire shelves.

Elfa, sold at the Container Store, makes some wonderful storage systems that I LOVE. They are pretty pricey, so I try to only buy them during a big sale! My larger spools fit in the larger drawers, but they get really heavy and so the drawers are hard to open and close sometimes.

I even use Beanie Baby boxes for ribbon storage. I like the way I can see right inside without even opening the container.

I have even resorted to the tried and true stacking plastic baskets. They just are not near as nice as the Elfa, though!

I plan to do a little online looking for better ribbon storage this week, so if you have any ideas or solutions, please share!

CFC HAPPY "TIGER", FRIDAY, June 11, 2010

This week's Happy Pet post is just a wee bit different. Instead of featuring several photos of Pups, this post is dedicated to only one Happy Pet: Cairo, a tiger cub.

His "Grandma" Danielle, of Chilly Paws on Etsy, bought 2 collars recently and I could hardly wait for these photos to arrive!
Isn't Cairo absolutely gorgeous?

Danielle was sweet enough to provide a little bio about Cairo:
Cairo, a 9 week old Bengal tiger cub, is an outgoing bundle of energy, attitude and affection. He enjoys long walks around the ranch where he stalks grasshoppers and weeds. Favorite toys include an extra large tennis ball and a hard pacifier. His best friend is a miniature dapple dachshund named Mickey.

Cairo enjoys milkshake bottles, long naps and relaxing in the shade. His favorite afternoon pastime is being in the swimming pool with 'Mommy' Renee and 'Grandma' Danielle, who are his favorite 'floaties'.

Cairo aspires to become the new Top Male Model at Chilly Paws and to enjoy an illustrious career. When he grows up Cairo wants to live on the ranch with his Mommy and be an ambassador for exotic animals.

Thanks, Danielle for sharing these delightful photos and a little about Cairo with us!
