    Yong Yong is very cute, but you can tell she needs Diamonds on collar to out bling all other dogs while out walking. I suggest using diamante, cheaper and she wont know the difference.

    PS: I also believe that with all that love you guys give her that has kept her alive all this time, that same love will get her walking. :)

    Awww sweet baby! Its the love that's kept him going. :)

    My dog, is a Yorkie/Maltese mix so only about 10/11 lbs. (had to share pic of her) Would you be willing to make one for me to buy for my dog? I need one of these. Do you sell them? If so, how much? (I am a metal-smith and artist painter and I've never worked with leather a day in my life, with the small exception of using it as a cord for jewelry. Please let me know in a message if possible.(PS: I only uploaded the pic once, but on my screen it shows 3 images!!!! (and I don't drink! lol)
