Pet Peeves


I hate Dog  Tags. I hate hearing them - like last night a the Teambuilding class, a little dog had like 15 of them on her collar. It was all Amanda and I could do not to run over and take them off of her! Next week she has been advised to wear a special Agility Class collar (ie. no tags).

I also hate seeing Dog Tags in my photos. They are so distracting and I don't want people to zoom in and see my info either. But I am not comfortable taking them off on walks for the sake of photos, so I remove them afterwards in photoshop. Just a little OCD behaviour I know, but it is all in the details you know.

WITH the Dog Tag, it is so distracting and takes the focal point away :)
You can hardly see saliva in Kaleb's mouth. (wink)

Without the Tag. Now can see you the saliva? Isn't that better :)

I also have an unhealthy obsession with getting rid of Eye Boogers, in real life and I have to take them out of photos, they have no place in society what so ever. eeeewwwww. If you've seen the size of Kaleb's Eye Boogers you'd understand!

uh oh...I have dog tags in tons of my photos - egads I never thought of zooming in to see information. 'Doh...me so stupid.

Sarah said...

I think I am just paranoid about it - esp. on the closeup photos. it is just creepy to think people would know where i live and what my ph# is! what if they came to my house and stole Kaleb haha

I don't like tags that hang down on my dogs so I went to Boomerang Tags (not affiliated just love their product) and bought the tags that slip onto my collars. Never had one fall off and I can switch the collars around.

We are a eye booger free home, if I can help it.

The eye boogers that Simon gets are ridiculous. I only hope someday that I'll know enough to digitally remove them!

I use Boomerang tags also....love them!

Eye goobers...totally understand.

OCD I am :)

that is so funny. you are so predictable!

eye boogers are gross. Vito is bad for that..and my dogs don't usually have tags on! Althought I am trying to be better about it!

And if someone called me from blogger land after seeing my number on a photo I'd give them an ear ful...same goes for "stalkers" I'd kick their ass! :o)

I actually kind of like collars and tags in my photos. I like my girls' tags! I already knew I wasn't very OCD... :)

Sarah said...

I like COLLARS in photos, just not the tags, mine are just boring silver ones, if I had fancy ones maybe it would look better! I usually leave Jane's in her photos, as her is little and heart shaped :)

My dogs are too furry to notice their collars or their tags. Too bad, since I have spent lots of money to buy them nice collars, that no one can even see.

We're a dog collar (and thus tag) free zone...

Basically, most of our walks with the dogs are off-leash and the leashes we have along (just in case) are retriever leads that don't have a collar to them. For the collars we do have, we still haven't gotten any tags.

But I can understand your obsession in removing the tags - especially to get rid of the private data.

I use the boomerang tags too. They are great. They are flat and never fall off, even when my dog was lost at the beach for 2 days. Diana

my husband also hates the jingle. Our dogs only wear one tag so they don't jingle. Mostly their long hair covers them up in photos, or else I just don't notice!
