My dogs never seem to get the Kong thing. I go to other dog homes and get jealous when they tug and chew quietly with their kongs in a corner. I still buy them in hopes it may provide a source of entertainment for at least a little bit. When I tried one with Mugsy and it was fun for maybe five minutes or so, then it was like ...next toy please. At puppy class the other day they showed us a little trick and it opened up a whole new world of kong-ideas!
Fill the kong with kibble almost to the top and then fill the end with a soft food some chopped up Natural Balance Roll stuff - another new great thing I learned about at puppy class. So far we have tried the lamb flavor and both big and little dog love it. We do need to get two kongs however as it can be a resource issue having only one kong now. Then give it to your pup and they will work really hard to get the soft stuff out and then the kibble will fall out as they play with the kong. Cute and it keeps them working for their kibble.
So for more awesome ideas and yummy recipes visits Kong's Site.

I found this site, Vintage Dogs, that offers great vintage dog stuff. Mostly books and ephemera and postcards/illustrations. I didn't find a ton of Boston Bulls but the site appears to be updated as they acquire items so check back often.
I was particularly intrigued by the Leeds Castle Replica Collars pictured above and featured on their site. These 18 and 19th century collars, originally worn by dogs of the English aristocracy, are repoussé and chased sterling silver. You can have one made for your dog for a few G's, engraving is included (see images below), jewels extra.
If you happen to be planning a trip to england be sure to visit Leeds Castle's Dog Collar Museum. Nearly 100 collars and related exhibits in the Leeds Castle Dog Collar Museum trace the history of canine neckwear from medieval to Victorian times. The page has a brief history of dog collars you may find interesting, especially if you ever wondered how spiked collars came about.
UPDATE!! Check this site out for more collar pictures.

Tabasco stopped the obnoxious barking while I am at the kitchen counter cooking. When he barks at me and doesn't stop when I say no, I put a small dot of tabasco on what I am cooking and feed it to him. So now he thinks all people food is hot and isn't interested in what's-cookin'.
