For the Love of a Sock Monkey Collar (on Etsy)

After living the last 2.5 years in a shelter, I thought Maddox needed something extra special to adorn his (massive 10.75-inch) neck. Something that would complement his coat and showcase his personality.

Something that looked like this:

Sock monkey collar and retro star tag from Etsy!

Unfortunately, Maddox was sleeping during today's fashion shoot, so his body double, Clyde, will serve as the model in the next few photos.

Clyde is the stiff one on the left. :)
P.S. Clyde is a hand puppet and belongs to Middle Child. Seriously. He's not mine!

The custom, cotton sock monkey collar (from K-nine Couture) is available for both dogs and cats and comes in several different background colors.

The lightweight ID tag (called the "Ethel") is hand made using aluminum and enamel. The seller (Very Vintage) has dozens of other whimsical tags to choose from.

Both transactions were smooth, items shipped quickly and they are so adorably well-made!

You should go check these sellers out!

Happy shopping and happy weekend!


  1. Sock Monkey. Well, betcha the other kids on the block won't have one of these! Love Clyde. Seriously.

  2. Ha ha ha! We have four martingale collars here for the dogs with sock monkeys on them! I'm a fan. I am really in love with those tags, though! Wowza!

  3. Nice one! Have a happy Saturday.
    Best wishes Molly

  8. only you would model a collar on a plush cat toy. too funny!

  9. Very cute! And seriously, you really ARE the only person who would think to use a stunt double for the collar modeling. :)

    Maddox is so lucky to have found his forever home to be yours.
