View Full Version : A Pretty Puppia for Clair's Penny UPDATED!

12th January 2007, 09:14 PM
Long story short:

Sara posted about a huge sale.
I buy too much.
Claire wants to get a puppia for Penny.
Company won't ship out of USA.
I offer to place Claire's order.
Claire accepts and orders a L Red Puppia.
I try to ease my guilty conscious and encourage Claire to really take advantage of this sale.
Claire gives me the go-ahead to order another puppia in the COLOR OF MY CHOICE.

Now, this is way too much pressure for me! I'm no fashion-plate myself, let alone up on doggie duds. Obviously, red will look stunning on any tri and especially Penny. But what other color would show off her inner and outer beauty? Here's what's available:

Pink - adorable, but is Penny a girlie-girl? Is Clair a girlie-girl? http://www.barksandcatsco.com/catalog.php?item=406&catid=20&ret=catalog.php%3Fcategory%3D20
Green - sharp looking, but can one be "too Irish?" Nahh, impossible!
Navy - not sure how well this would show up against a tri's coloring
Black - less conspicuous and would kinda be camouflaged with her hair
Yellow - Pretty, but would it get too dirty looking
Aqua Blue - bright and cheery

So, what does everyone think? I need some advice...but quickly before these sell out. I thank you, and so does Claire and Penny!

I say go for green!!

I wanted a green but then all you cavaliertalk people ordered them out from underneath me! ;) ;)

Green is a stunning color - the other color I would pick would be pink :)

Hey, one of each, lol. :P You can never have too many!

Agreed with Sara. Spencer (my tri) looks so cute in green, and it is good for males and females :D

Mickey, you're a hoot! :rotfl: :rotfl: :rotfl:
I don't mind green or pink. I think black and navy are probably too dark.

Don't forget though! One lge and one medium, that way all angles are covered.

:flwr: :hug:

PINK - yeah I know that's violet but it's close :lol:

She's a little girlie and little girlies need pink things - I'd love a little girlie to have pink things for :lotsaluv:

I vote for yellow!!! Only because I wanted one for Mia and they were already sold out of mediums.

The green would be great too--just thought I'd throw in a different color for fun. Yellow or green would be good for Spring, too.

I could live with Yellow too :D

Wow Mickey...you might have a tough time choosing as you have a hung jury! :lol: :lol: :lol:

My tri has a yellow one and a red one and they look great. We also have the green which my blenheim wears...it is very lime and I think it doesn't look as good on the tri as the yellow and red. JMHO. But then again, that pink and sky blue are both really nice too! Ohhh, decisions, decisions.

12th January 2007, 11:27 PM
OH OH I want to vote!! yellow, someone here has a nice picture of 2 dogs and one is a tri in a yellow. I think it looks good on the adult dogs! I'm getting a tri girl 13 dayand do want a pink cause well its a puppy, but for an adult cav I definately would want the yellow then. oh :P to getting dirty, all the more reason to get all the other great colours later - red is a favorite too on a tri.

Shelby has pink (you can see it in my avatar picture). Jake has on the dark blue in that picture....you can't see it at all.

I vote for pink or green.

I must have missed the memo on this. Glad I put this to a forum vote and came back to count the ballots, or I would have ordered another large. Yikes!

Anyway, the deed's been done, the die is cast, and the order has been placed.

And what color did I select? I guess Claire will tell everyone when she gets it.

Oh Mic, that is a bit cruel making us wait all THAT time!!! :( I need to know NOW!!! Just tell me so you don't spoil the surprise for Claire and Penney :lol:
Julie and the girls

Oh the suspense! :lol:

14th January 2007, 06:47 PM
Oh no, now we have to wait until Claire gets the package :shock: :lol:

Claire, the tris look gorgeus in green...!

My Lia has a green puppia! I like very much the yellow one!

16th January 2007, 03:00 AM
I know it's too late but I vote for yellow!!

Look at that picture of Lia with her yellow necklace!! :lol: :lol:

Penny is just a larger version, just as cute and yellow is soooo flattering!

Guess we'll have to wait and see....yellow...yellow...yellow!! :lol: :lol: :lol:

I think RED :flwr:

20th January 2007, 10:24 AM
and... when are you going to receive the puppia??.... we can't wait to see the color you chose!!

20th January 2007, 04:48 PM
Well...Claire won't get it until I ship it to her. And since I haven't received it yet, it may be a bit before she can post plenty of pics of Penny posing in her Puppia (try to say THAT ten times fast).

The order was shipped out yesterday so I imagine I'll get it the first half of next week. Then I'll have to find out how long shipping to Claire will take. I'm assuming the quicker you want it, the more $$$$ you pay, so that will be up to Claire.

The interesting thing is that I placed 3 separate orders including two orders for Claire. And Sara is also having an order shipped to me which she'll pick up when she comes for Faith. Apparently, everything's coming in one big shipment, so I'll get to sort through it all. Tempting...very tempting.....

Well, the results are in. Click the link to see which color Minnie got:

It was fate that had me taunt Claire to buy two puppias! Good thing, now that she has two pretty pups!
