Our dog-nephew, Wacho is about the age where he can start contributing to his family and I thought it would be nice for him to have something to wear to interviews so I made him this for Christmas. (here modeled by our Betty)



Here it is off the dog. I used the collar off a thrift store shirt. I just cut it up the center back and finished the ends with a bias tape scrap I had in my stash.  Elastic loops give a place to slide a collar through.  I found a tie to go with at the same shop.  Wacho is a Malamute with the standard fluffy hair, so I don't think anyone interviewing him will even notice that his shirt collar doesn't go all the way around and the blue color will bring out his eyes.



Betty can be one of those too-cool-for-school, bored model-types.

Heeeeere's WACHO!  I told his mom that the gift was for job interviews, but indications would suggest that he wants to use it for dates! [wink]

Betty isn't giving that up for anything. Very Annie Hall.
I'm totally making one for Charlie to defuse my dad's irritation for me bringing him to Xmas dinner. Cuz who can't love a mutt in a tie.

I thought both Annies Hall and Lennox when I put it on Betty! And then I reminisced about my own tie wearing in the mid-late 80s. Good times.
Charlie will look so dang dapper! Such a shame we so seldom dress for dinner any more.  Wink

If we could only see how those gears turn in your head MT; a little left of center and at a slightly erratic pace.  Wink  This is pretty hilarious.

A couple of weeks ago, I bought materials to make 4 more of .  The no-kill shelter where we adopted one of our Beastie Grrrlz (not Betty, above) has a couple of pro photos that donate services so every dog gets a glamour shot for their adoption listing. They have a couple-few props they use (a stuffed arm chair, an old console TV with the guts removed) and I noticed recently that they put a fancy bow on the collar of some of the females sometimes.  So I got 4 different sizes for them to use for their males when they feel like it.  They specialize in hard-to-place dogs, so they get a lot of seniors, pibbles, chihuahuas, and some mastiffs.  They make these short movies called "Piteos" for their pibbles and a sometimes others where there is usually a story shown that matches a song. Anyway, maybe they can use them for the Piteos, too.

It's a really awesome shelter and they work with other shelters to make sure healthy dogs aren't put down, etc.  This is the photo of our Delia, you can see they use the TV for puppies and small dogs.

That is just too cute. I have heard of leaving the TV on for dogs, and the doggie channel you can subscribe too, but never thought to put them in one  Cheesy Thanks for my chuckle of the day!
