Don't I look silly?!?!? It was the humans doing again. See, I went to the kennel a few weeks ago and they gave me a bath and I guess they put this thing on me so that I would always have a towel handy to dry myself off, but that seemed too weird. Then I found out the real reason.....(stay tuned!) So anyway, my mommy and sister thought it looked cute and took PICTURES!!!!!!! As you can see in the first picture, I was a little embarrassed about it and I didn't want my picture taken, but some how mommy always wins, and by bribing me she got me to come out (second picture). I guess it wasn't really that bad. I looked cute. And Boomer told me why. You see, it is apparently very common for us dogs to wear these. Not for a towel, or a toy, or a bag, no, for FASHION!!!! CAN YOU BELIEVE IT!?!?!?! THEY CALL THESE THINGS FASHION! DO THEY KNOW HOW ANNOYING THEY ARE?!?!?!!? NOOOOOOO! They put them on to make us look good!!!! I don't know whether to be disgusted or overjoyed. On one paw, they are trying to make us look good, but on the other, they are doing it to make us look good! Ok, that didn't make all that much sense...what I mean is, I went through all that itchy-ness just so my owner would look good. You see, if I look good, my owner does, too. Why don't they try wearing those things for a day!!?!?!?!? Ugh! I am so amazed at their selfishness! Man, when will they learn.

On a more melancholy note, BOOMER'S GONE!!!!!!!!! WHAAAAA, WHAAAA, WHAAA! MY TRUE LOVER! GONE!!!!!!!! He moved to that place that is a long way away again. I couldn't believe it! Do humans have ANY feelings!?!??????????! I don't know how you could do it. To break up a love relationship that has just started!?!?! We didn't even have little pups yet! (ok, Boomer didn't know about that little detail). Well, I don't think I could have pups anymore anyway, but one can dream, can't they!?!?! Anyway, I am very dismayed. I will miss him so. I never got to say good-bye. So Boomer, good-bye! I will never forget you, you beautiful, blond pup. Farewell, my love...... :'(

Abby, you look beautiful with the bandana! And when you came out of the kennel you were so clean and smelling so good!
But don't worry, for now you don't have to go back there.
Just wear the bandana once in a while and be a good girl, ok?

Such cute pictures. She really does look embarrassed about coming out.

I feel bad about Boomer too. Sometime I will bring Sherman out to play. Oh I know that he won't replace Boomer...but atleast you could run around and play and have fun. Maybe it would cheer you.

Abby said...

Well, thank you mom, for the complement. I don't know about beautiful, but ok...

I would love to have Sherman out to play sometime! That would be great. I think it will cheer me up.....

Sherman said...

Ooooo, a play date sounds nice!!

Boomer said...

Oh sweetie, you look very beautiful!! You look pretty in anything the stupid humans put on you. Humans are stupid, but I love em! That little detail, you did forget, but when I was even littler the evil humans that I think are called vets, they did something to me so I can't have babies with anyone as special and pretty as you, hon. Love you! -Your,Boomie

Oh, thank you, Boomie, you look good in anything, too. The vet people did stuff to me which is why I said I couldn't have pups anymore, either, so.....
love ya!
