I learned something new today. Cheap unbranded rugs are a false economy.
Today I made the decision to put rugs on The Minions.
There seems to be no let-up in this horrid weather and they are suffering.
Storm’s rug from last year still fits him, just. I reckon he will have outgrown it by next year and that is a huge shame as it was wonderful and fitted very well. He is very attached to it and his little face lit up when I put it on him.
Tiddles has done lots of growing and I never really noticed. I struggled to find a rug that would fit him. His bottom hangs out of this one but it is better than nothing.
Silver is wearing a 3’9″ no fill rug that fitted well. This was the best of all the rugs today.
You may remember this was the first rug I had for Storm. It was a tad big then.
I tried another rug that has never been worn and he was much too big for it. Everything poked out. This is where I found out that cheap rugs are a false economy. The neck was made for a whippet, the velcro was too thick to go through its buckle and the whole thing was nasty and badly made. So Waffle ate it.
Waffle is sporting a fetching binder-twine number but it is warm and functional so it will have to do for the time being.
We will struggle through with these rugs, though I might see if Ebay have some good brands being sold (Masta, Rambo (Rhino or Wug), Rhinegold) or just sell a kidney and do a spot of shopping.
Now this rug is wonderful.
It fits, it is warm and Brá loves it.
