Sadly we can't see the surely stylin' collar, but I do spot what looks like an older model Flexi for her tiny Tibetan Spaniel — the retractable leads come in a rainbow of colors with cord or tape models available. Since they're in public, Mischa keeps the pooch on a short leash, but these range up to 26 feet long! If you're still unsure about the controversial style, check out more pictures of the twosome's JFK arrival below.
I've said time and time again that I like the bling but somehow I can't imagine putting Swarovski Crystals on North's Flexi. This leash reminds me of those adhesive-backed "body jewels" that were popular when I was in college . . . makes me kinda wish I didn't get rid of my leftovers from Sophomore Formal! But, once again, back to the dogs. The designs on these products should at least be long-lasting as each rhinestone is manually fitted to the leash casing by hand – probably part of the reason there's a $169 price tag. Wow! No matter what, I think these are a little too girly for my tough guy but what do you think? Would you put this product on your wish list?
Even though North has a Flexi that I use when I want to give him more room to roam, I know that these leashes can be dangerous from the warnings that came along in the package. Many cities have leash length laws – usually between six and 10 feet – way below the standard 16-foot Flexi. Now there are definitely times when I don't feel comfortable with my pup off leash and I like the belt version (over the "cord" model) because it's sturdy and adjustable for any environment. I'm curious how many of you have use a Flexi (or other retractable-style leash) to walk your dogs?
