The Difference in Inches

IMG_1914Here is where I might cop to doing a bit of online shopping occasionally from work various devices and I often find it both annoying and challenging to get something ordered for the dogs if I don’t have them nearby.  I might be perusing a site or reading a blog recommendation and decide that the boys absolutely can’t live without whatever the item du jour is but be foiled by a lack of handy measurements.  Then like a lightbulb or a flash I read about one of my blog buddies making up a spread sheet of her dogs’ measurements to always have handy.  (I could swear it was Hannah, but I can’t find the specific post.) 

Well, I immediately stole her idea copied her sheet and made a few modifications then when I got home I set out to measure my beasts.  Only I struggle with it.  I usually buy them martingale collars, so if the measurements are a bit off, it’s ok but ordering buckle collars has become a bit of a huge fail.  I can measure those boys over and over and still come up with different measurements.  And how can Ray be 2-3 inches longer than Julius?  Why are their necks an inch or two different when they can wear the same collar?  And if they are standing or looking ahead or down that seems to affect the neck measurement by several inches.  If I measure wrong will their collars strangle them?  Ugh! What am I missing?




So after a bit of searching, I found this nice handy visual to use for when I remeasure for the next round of purchases. (Honey, avert your eyes.) So now all I need to do is remember to load the measurements in all of my devices or at least my dropbox.

Do you ever have issues with inconsistent sizing?
