Sometimes I wonder why members of the canine community are showing up with increased frequency in those innumerable clothing magazines that arrive in our postal box.
One can only assume that they are intended to increase the desirability of whatever garment is on display. Are humans so gullible that they are seduced into thinking that the right sartorial selection will attract canine devotion?
This golden gal is focused on what is unquestionably a fist full of nommies and not the "elaborate raw edge twill applique" which is, in any case, not even visible to her big brown eyes.
Two guesses as to what the dog in this picture is thinking.
(a) Wow! You look fabulous in that ultrasoft and comfortable hoodie!
(b) Tennis ball, tennis ball, TENNIS BALL!
I also wondered, "why dogs?"
After all, humans love all sorts of furry creatures.
Why not cats?
On second thought, perhaps the answer to that question is apparent.
But all of this did set me to wondering if perhaps yours truly could have a career as a model canine.
I asked momma if she would help me put together a portfolio that I might peddle during my off hours. She was happy to assist. Very supportive, my momma.
Show this photo to your humans and let me know what they say....
I can hear them now "I am going right out to find an ensemble EXACTLY like that so that I, too, can have a labradorable admirer."
