Ginger, Fred and Achy Bones
Merci: Well, we could do some dancing, Buddy. That would keep us warm. Would you like that?
Buddy: No, my bones ache in this cold, damp weather. I might manage a slow shuffle if you're serious, but no bop, wop or dip.
Merci: *whisper* How did you get the tie away from Buddy?
Sam: I asked him for it. I promised Jan will wash and iron it when I'm done with it. My bones don't ache, so I'd be happy to escort you to the backyard ball where we can dance among the leaves and mud.
Sam: That's okay. I won't have to worry about dipping it in the water bowl when we take a refreshment break. And since I've never danced before either, we can make up our own steps as we go.
Buddy: While the two social butterflies learn to dance, I''ll tell you a little about the bandana and tie. They came from Tail Trends, a pet project that sells a line of dog apparel - hand-crafted and stylish bandanas with felt applique, neckties and bow ties, tutus, and hair bows. They recently introduced “The Original Collar Cozy,” a tubular cover that allows you to dress up plain old collars by slipping on different designs. They have holiday designs, too, so you dogs can dress up for Christmas and New Year's parties.
Sam: Did you tell them my tie ... I mean, your tie has a satin ribbon that ties behind my ... your neck?
Buddy: Not yet.
Sam: That's okay. I just did. You don't need to now.
Merci: My bandana ties around my neck like any kerchief would. I think it makes me look very feminine.
Buddy: Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers have spoken. Stop by Tail Trends and check out their inventory.
We were sent a sample necktie and kerchief but received no compensation. Any opinions expressed are strictly our own.
