Meet Skylos (pronounced Skee lows). His name means dog in greek. We also call him Skeeter which seems to fit right in with the Minnesota lingo! He is definately better than the other kind of skeeter so common in our neck of the woods!
 
For the collar I used: a belt made from a reclaimed vintage wool blanket, a vintage canteen covered with a wrap made from an old army blanket and piece of old red felt, a canning jar lid, and a big sparkly S.
To make sure the S stayed nice and sparkly and didnt fall off the lid I applied a couple coats of Mod Podge. Then to attach the lid to the o-ring on the belt, I used a drill to put a small hole in the top edge of the lid, and then used a key ring to loop them together.
Here is a better look at the collar on Skylos.
You gotta love that Sammy smile!
Good Boy!! (Can you tell I just love him to death!? I couldnt just put one photo- had to put several!)
