These are my friends Willie and Terry who live in Maine! Don't they look cute in their bow ties?



Muzzer certainly thought so.




She told their human "E." how cute she thought they looked. And E. sent me and Teka each a loverly neckatie of our own.


Now, to me, this looks like a very simple proposition.

End A over End B, under up and around. Perk it up a bit by pulling on both ends. Right? Remember, I am the wire who wears "real" bowties, that muzzer ties for me all by herself.

Well, first of all...Teka is having none of this. She just got a new pink collar and she doesn't want to wear this neckatie
It clashes with her new collar. OK.

Next muzzer puts one on me...

I ask you

"Does this even vaguely resemble the perky bows that Willie and Terry have around their necks?"

"Does it enchance my natural wirey cuteness?"

"Does it make me look dapper and debonair?"


NO!

We are working on it.

We promise pictures of Teka in her new collar tomorrow.

DUH! You've got it on like a scarf, not a bowtie. Maybe no one you know will see you with it on like that. And for heaven's sake don't wear it on st. patrick's day.

And poor Teka looks like she has either a very bad toothache or a very bad hangover. Gus looks a lot sharper the 2nd time around.

Those neckties are so cute! And they are my Mommy's favorite color. They make both doggies look very debonair indeed!

Oh no! My mom just learned to knit and now she's got all kinds of bright ideas that are beginning to make me a little nervous. Good thing I'm packing my bags and going to visit Wally for his burpday. Good suggestion Gussie!!!!

Oh those bow ties are lovely. When you get it on properly I think you will look smashing. You might even get an invite to the next Obama inaugural ball.

I know the directions are very confusing, Gus, but I think that you have it on upside down.

Love and Koobuss Kisses,

Love your bow tie - better than the flowers my D stuck behind my head!! Thanks for dropping by my Blog - Jackson is a real pal. My D is a big fan of Buddy Holly too - she has all his music including these funny old little black flat 7" discs - which she doesn't listen to in case they wear out! People are odd. I will bark at you again soon - Licks Sally
