Maine Dog Tags and Maine Dogs Just Don't Mix

For the past couple of years, the state of Maine has given out dog tags shaped like the state of Maine. Cute, right? Wrong. Maine has lots of jutting towns and jagged edges that poke and prod delicate pups. So I registered the dogs, got out my jewelry-making tools and got to work.

First I used metal cutting shears to snip off the pointy parts. With all due respect to the entirety of York County and Downeast Maine, they had to go.

Then I filed the rough edges down. Smooth as blobs (Patrick thinks they look like piles of poo).

The puppies seem content! No more sharp edges!
