What to do with an inept owner...

Oh, The Shame of It All

by Y. M. Roger

So I’m just gonna say it: my owner’s a dunce – a complete pointed-hat-in-the-corner dunce.
We went shopping yesterday to pick out a new leash/harness set – of course, I was in her purse as usual. But, Sweetheart! As soon as I saw this color, I knew it would complement my tawny and ivory coat, yes?
Imagine this: she wanted red! Ugh! Red just screams ‘Chihuahua’, does it not?
Anyway, I won the color battle, but look at this picture – do you see what she’s done? She’s fitted the harness wrong – the bell’s sideways!

Oh, the humiliation… Just shoot me now!




He just looked like the perfect 'fashion hog', don't you think? Hedgehog, that is... ;) ;)

As always, thank you for reading me! ;)
