It's perfect. Goodboy worked with me to address my concerns, and the result is a freaking gorgeous garter. Love it. Will be hoping to expand my collection in the near future. :D

THIS IS NOT A TRUSTWORTHY VENDOR!!! I placed and order for a cuff - measured and sized the way they specified. The order I received was not the right size and when I wrote the company I received a snarky reply - they are not customer oriented and do not seem to care about customer service. Personally I would say- STAY AWAY FROM DOG & HOOP. NOT A GOOD VENDOR.

Snarky? I suggested that the customer re-measure his wrist and return the item for an adjustment. He refused and we received our first gold star. Should I have used capital letters in here somewhere? -MM

About

Tete-a-tete ...

Mistress Minette -
I acquired GoodBoy at the Louvre.
He was staring intently at "The Death of Sardanapalus".

I took note of his collar.

On the spur of the moment I decided to test what my sensibilities detected. He continued his examination of the painting as I approached him from the corner of the room. When I was in close proximity I stopped, unsnapped my purse and idly searched the contents within.

"Ahh..."
He looked over at me as I withdrew my hand and revealed the leash.
"Would you like to go for a walk?"
"Oui." He responded and lifted his chin to expose his neck.
I secured the lead to the horseshoe-shaped ring hanging from his collar and turned around.
"Venez."
He followed.
“C'est un sage garçon!”

GoodBoy -
I worked one degrading job after another, each more humiliating than the last in an effort to find an environment that sated my desire to be controlled, reprimanded and diminished. There were an abundance of subterranean clubs in Paris that catered to these proclivities, but I had yet to find an occupation that would fill up the glaring hours of the day.

What I needed was an owner with reciprocal sensibilities.
Someone who possessed that certain... je ne sais quoi.
Someone I would jump through hoops for.

I walked over to the Delacroix exhibition at the Louvre. But his themes of the enslaved and their tyrannical rulers only fueled my rumination on the nature of servitude. I revisited my employment history, a litany of menial tasks in every conceivable industry. Salesman. Tailors apprentice. Dishwasher. Each endeavor managed to satisfy my submissive inclinations, but ultimately failed to exploit my accumulated skills and my desire to somehow put them to use.

I scratched at the stubble beneath my leather collar and absently felt my pulse. I was looking to fall in under the right command. There was a French locution to describe this missing attribute, but it escaped me.

My reverie was interrupted by the sound of approaching footsteps and when I glanced over, I discovered a woman holding a leash in her hand. I understood at once that my reply to her question would have profound repercussions. Her inquiry was also an invitation, an offer that would be binding in nature. The moment I heard the bolt snap shut around the ring of my collar, the phrase I had been searching for returned.

Mise en place.

I finally knew where I belonged.

    My role is that of a supervisor. GoodBoy's servitude is reward based and I do so enjoy offering incentives. I also apply discipline when necessary. Whatever is required to spur him on. In short, I hold the reins & wield the crop.

    It's the little details. The scent of a leather hide The sound of the crop slicing through the air The raised impression on my skin, reminiscent of the embossed logo on my collar The approving smile of my owner looking down at me I love my work
