Important Accessories for Pets in Aberdeen, Scotland

Sunset is at 16:30 now. By the time most people get home from work, it's already very dark. The first winter we lived here, I didn't think much of it, but now as I become a better dog owner who takes my dogs out every day and wants them safe, I've learned a few tricks. Dogs need to be seen. When I run with Angel, I wear a yellow reflective vest. She is white, and thus, doesn't need as much help to be seen. I use a blinking LED collar clip like the one below. It took her a few minutes to get used to it, but after a while she started to ignore it.

 Frog has black fur and needs more than a blinking light. For him, I bought an LED collar, and I love it! I got a Firefly dog safety collar in red. I highly recommend it. £13 on Amazon.

I took a short video to show you what they look like in the dark. Keep yourself and your pets safe.

In more exciting news, Steve and I took our first Kung Fu belt test this weekend, and we PASSED! Can you believe it? Girl with brittle bones has 2 belts in Kung Fu! I told one of my senior brothers that I was just happy to be allowed to train with them. A belt, for someone like me, is more than anything I could have hoped to achieve! It's not without it's consequences though. 2.5 hours of training in a seminar caused a little damage, but it's nothing that the grace of God and a little Chinese medicine can't fix. :o)


  1. That's really cool, congrats on earning your belts! Not so great about the bruises though eeekk!

  2. Hey Bruiser! Great job on the 2nd Kung Fu belt and I love the glow in the dark collar! I think you should get a glow in the dark belt and headband to match!!


I am happy to hear from you!
