Anything on this planet that is beautifully crafted from quality, preferably natural materials makes me absolutely giddy with glee. Which brings me to foundmyanimal.com. Their gorgeous handmade (by professional New England rope-makers) leashes are "hand-spliced to withstand thousands of pounds of pull, the ends are then "whipped" (an old nautical term) for additional durablility". The leashes also feature marine grade cast Italian hardware - adjustable solid brass o-rings and 2 solid bronze clips, one at each end. The o-ring actually lets you secure the leash around you waist for hands-free walking. They come in 4 sizes and are priced from $56-$76 US dollars, plus shipping. Found leashes are also available at Rodd and Gunn stores throughout Australia and New Zealand, and 25% of all their profits go directly to the Louis Animal Foundation.
