How boring it would be if we all loved all the same things! 
Great line Debbra! I like that.
Today we went down to the waterfront, I was not on my scooter but being pushed by a friend in my wheelchair, Lia is not really used to this set up so it was throwing her a a bit being so close to the side of the chair, (she had to be because the walkways were full of people as it was a BEAUTIFUL day) so I let another friend walk her on a separate leash and she had Lia close all the time. If I had a traffic loop on our leash I am sure she would have used it. I tend to walk the  fluff fluff on a looser leash and pull them in as we approach on coming pedestrians, but as you said, we don't all  Love word the same things.

I discovered a great thing about the rope n go today .... you can easily add back the loop if you want it  nodding  It was a fabulous day here as well!  Max and I went with my Mother to the garden centre.  He was very well behaved but wanted to investigate all the sights and smells and because it was such a wonderful day after days and days of rain the garden centre was packed.  I hadn't been there two minutes when I quickly tied a loop back into the leash so that I could keep Max close at hand.

I walk them on 36 inch leads now, so these leads were far too long for me and with a lot of extra bulk/length to deal with to keep them short enough (and I'm not one to chop up a rope lead - I'd rather just buy one that's the right length).

They said they take custom sizes for their toy size leads for people that want a more delicate lead but with a larger dog, which is what I had ordered for them. I had asked for their thinnest rope with a 4ft leash and no traffic lead, and they sent me a 6 ft lead with a bunch of it looped over, and the rope was pretty thick (though I have no comparison to other sizes, so I can't say if it was indeed the thinnest they offer or if they just sent me what was already made, which is what I suspect).

But I am glad it is working for Debbra and glad that others enjoy and benefit from the design. I've found some leather step-in leads like the rope-n-go on a few various sites that are like THS and THIS,which is more the lead style I like, though I'm vegetarian so I don't buy leather products (nor do I want to spend that much on a dog leash). Then I found THESE, which are exactly what I want ... but too small. I found THESE faux leather ones, but the lead looks long and I'm not too fussed about the crystal/glitter accent.


I'll keep a casual eye out, though.

Here are some photos that show the 'traffic loop' (although I thought it was bigger when it came).  I just untied it so I had a straight leash.  Yesterday I tied a loop back into it when we were somewhere that was really busy.

Thanks Debbra. I see it.  The leash looks really nice! It looks strong too.

These (the faux leather ones in the last link) are in a pet store that I frequent and they actually seem kind of flimsy and IMO tacky.

Good to know my gut was correct on those ones. I've seen/used to sell the leather ones, and those were well made - but too rich for me (and I don't buy leather).

Debbra, Max certainly has changed his looks-   Laugh Hysterical  thanks for showing the traffice loop.

I have one of the leather leashes that Danielle showed but in a different style.  It is red and has a rhinestone bone slide- a little blingy, but it is fun sometimes.  The biggest problems with the harness is that there are no buckles to use with Noah's car seat- so can only use it for walking.   I would not want to use it all the time as it is as Kelly said flimsy.

Oh Debbra, could you rate me on eBay? No one ever does, which is why I have such a low number next to my star despite having made a number of sales there.
