New Harness and BLING

Hi everyone! I hope you all had a happy 4th! So a few weeks ago I got TWO things in the mail! One was my new Puppia harness (Dachshund Mommy: this is the BEST harness for Nola I have ever found), because my old one had ripped along the neck. And the other was my new ID tag Mom I picked out from the Etsy shop Doggone Tags. I love these tags because they're not only unique, but the info is stamped onto the tag so it can't wear off.
I also got my rabies vaccine in the middle of last month. It's great because I can get a 3 year rabies vaccine now that we moved; in Tallahassee it was yearly.  I was such a good girl and barely even flinched. I was very sore and cranky after :(. Mom gave me benadryl and that helped a lot. But my new rabies tag is HUGE! Seriously, it's about the size of a half dollar. That might not sound like much, but remember I'm only 8lbs and 7 inches tall (at the shoulders).
How do you like my new accessories?
Kisses and Tail Wags,
Dachshund Nola
Is this for me???
Dachshund Mommy: Sorry for the crappy picture; there was a major storm going on this day so the light is awful 

The perfect size! Our phone number's on the back

For me?? Again? YAY!

I think you should use these to open it

What a difference!

How did you get down there?
See my ridiculously huge tag?


  1. We still have to do annual rabies shots here:(.

    We love the color of your new harness. It is an awesome shade to set off against your pretty furs.

  2. Good morning Nola!
    I am still so sleepy from last night kabooms - ugh
    I love your harness, so pretty and new!
    You bling tag is pretty with the flower and your name,
    pretty like you!
    One time mom got such a big tag for me in the mail she used it on her key chain cuz it
    was too big for me (I'm a wee dog too)
    Thanks a lot (!) for reminding mom about the rabies shots - ugh, I'm due too - only good thing about the vet's store is the treat!

    Love you, have a great day!

  3. What nice surprises! I made Doggone Tags one of my Etsy "favorites." Love them!

  4. We think my Lily needs to try out a harness like that. Also we think your new bling is the coolest

  5. LOL, we are suprised you can still walk with all that bling!
    We have had Puppia harnesses for years now and we love them. They are so soft and comfortable we can drag Mum's arm out of the socket as much as we like, he he.

  6. Very nice Nola. Have a good evening.
    Best wishes Molly

  7. Such a nice little ID tag...not so sure about that HUGE rabies tag, though (must you wear it all the time?). Mommy recently purchased a Puppia harness (that can fit all 6 adult kitties AND Whisky the doggy!) and she finds it to be pretty good quality.
    We love that last photo of you smiling. You're so pretty, Nola!

  8. So glad you get the 3yrs rabies shot (I get that one, too) ~ it is much better than having to have one every single year! I just love your new harness. I wish they made one big enough for a big girl like me, oh well. I can't believe your tag is sooo big! It's almost as big as your chest! (not that it isn't a VERY lovely chest!)



  9. That tag is WAY too big !! LOVE the harnesses and the color is so pretty.

  10. You are going to be one stylin doxie, I love your new tag, your right that old one was HUGE !

  11. Love the new header!

    we gave you an award if you want to stop by our blog to check it out!

  12. hey Nola,

    Love your header photo! I remember that photo from one of your mom's photo contest days. :->

    Your new tag is so pretty! And your new blue harness does look much better. I am glad your mom found it for you. Yes, your rabies tag is huge. What's up with that? They should have S-M-L sizes to go with the different doggies. :->

    Sorry your rabies shot hurt. Shots are no fun but some do seem to hurt worse than others. Glad you are feeling better. Your photo "How did you get down there" is pawsome!


  13. Good golly, that rabies tag is Great Dane sized. Geese. But we love your new pretty name tag. A girl must get new harnesses every now and again for the season :)


  14. our mom loves puppia harnesses, us not so much.

  15. What no picture with you in your new harness? Love your new tag, so cute. :)

  16. My Lucy has a Puppia harness also but I don't like how the buckle and other plastic thingy are right in her armpits. I bought a tag from she has the kind that lays flat against her collar. Lucy is 9lb little girl too. I only put her rabbies tag on when she leaves town because it's soooo big.

  17. Tucker's rabies tag is huge too! Not as much as a problem with his size (now!) but before it was silly big. Stewie's is much smaller. You would think they would go by the breed to give you the right size.

    I love Puppia harnesses! All the colors and even prints. And yes we love our Doggone Tags for both boys

  18. Looking good! I love those purple sneaks in the main picture on your website! And we get that 3 year vaccine too - it's so nice not having to go back every year for it!

  19. Nola....
    I love your new ID tag!! It is cute!! ;op
    Love, Raelyn.... And Rose, my BEAUTIFULLY UNIQUE "Mystery Dog"!!

  20. Nola,
    You crack us up every time we visit you.
    We want to give you an award.
    Stop by when you get a chance.

  21. A Puppia harness! That's so cool.We've been a bit busy because of my sister's party so I haven't gone here for some time.

    Your dog tag looks pretty. It even has a flower.

    Huggies and Cheese,


  22. You are soooo right, Nola!
    That tag is bigger than you!
    Glad you have your new harness!
    Kisses and hugs

  23. Nola, I love your harness. That tag is pretty big, I hope it doesn't pull your head down when you try to walk.

  24. Good grief that rabies tag is HUGE! It's too bad they don't give smaller ones to little dogs.
    Your harness is sooo cute, I love that color! And your new ID tag is super cute as well! You're a lucky doggy, Nola. :)

  25. Hey Nola!
    Wow, that tag is definitely too big for a petite girl. But, your colar bling is fabulous and that harness is very chic! You'll look amazing as always.
    BTW: Great header pix!

  26. The rabies tags here aren't so huge but the city license tags are. They are about the same size as your rabies tag. The last one they sent for my cat was smaller but it was this little rectangle that looked like you were supposed to slide it over the collar band....except their was absolutely no way to get it past the buckle. Huh?? Whatever. I just put it on a ring and hung it off the collar like a regular tag. I love your new name tag!

  27. OMG! I don't know how I missed this! Great harnesses, but that bling.....beautiful!!

  28. Hi Nola
    Hmmm, me thinks maybe me should goes for a harness....nope!
    Me is too small for my tags too, sow we has a small one with my name and telephone number on my collar and my rabies tag is on Mommy's key ring!
    Me loves your new bling (and your big smile)

  29. The Bling is GORGEOUS! :) I really like the harness, too. Our looks similar to yours.
