Unbeknownst to me we were entered into a raffle after making a donation to Charlie’s medical fund. Charlie is Ashley’s and Joe’s beloved berner boy who had needed life saving emergency care. In true Berner fashion, the Berner community got together to help cover the medical costs.
Much to my astonishment we won the raffle that entitled Sam to receive a custom-made collar. I was contacted by Marissa whose business while in college is http://www.CollarsbyMarissa.blogspot.com.
Marissa had donated a collar to the fundraiser for Charlie. Now all I had to do was pick out the style and fabric and wait for the collar to arrive.
When it arrived Mr. Sam knew right away that the package was for him. He literally wrestled the gift wrapped collar out of my hands and proceeded to open it. After the exuberant unwrapping I photographed Marissa’s gorgeous gift and Sam was eager to try it on.
Here are a few pictures of Sammy sporting his new collar:
Well we had to adjust the size of the collar a few times until we had the perfect fit. And here is the result, a gorgeous berner boy with a splendid collar:
It’s a foggy morning with Sam and his Dad waiting for Mom to catch up with Sophia. As always, Lilly is doing her own thing.
As you can see, the new collar is beautiful and Sammy wears it well. Let me give a big thank you to Marissa for such a lovely gift.
