The Whisker Ball, my town’s annual fundraiser for the animal shelter, is truly fun. This year’s attendance was at 400, not counting the dogs. We had preferred seating in the canine section, which meant we had chairs at a table while the pets flopped on the floor. We sat with our friends John and Terrie and their pups Cody and George. A dressy affair for both guests and doggies, black proved to be a magnet for dog hair. Despite George’s seemingly lack of excitement to be my lap dog, he was actually very happy to be off the floor and at table level where he could lick plates. The brooch I’m wearing is doggie jewelry, and holds a picture of our departed pet, Truffles.
I love my children, yet I don’t wear their pictures on my clothing! What is it about pets that we do such wacky things?
Tie One On…an apron, of course!
