A Luminous Halo

"Life is not a series of gig lamps symmetrically arranged; life is a luminous halo, a semi-transparent envelope surrounding us from the beginning of consciousness to the end." --Virginia Woolf

Smith ’69, Purdue ’75. Anarchist; agnostic. Writer. Steward of the Pascal Emory house, an 1871 Second-Empire Victorian; of Sylvie, a 1974 Mercedes-Benz 450SL; and of Taz, a purebred Cockador who sets the standard for her breed. Happy enough for the present in Massachusetts, but always looking East.

Digs for Dogs

The clothing available for dogs is mostly tacky and frou-frou. There's only one site I've found online with cool canine clothes, chiwowwow.com, but the stuff is $$$$. If Taz has to start dressing up--in snowboots or any other gear--I think I'm going to have to make her wardrobe myself to my own specifications.

Chiwowwow uses vintage t-shirts to make most of its clothes. Who doesn't already have a crapload of t-shirts cluttering up some drawer? I found a too-small tee and tried it on Tazzy to see if she'd even accept a piece of clothing. It hampered her movement somewhat (not being tailored properly yet) and she bit at it a little. But overall she was less antsy than I would've thought.

This shirt has a Dr. Seuss "green eggs and ham" theme. Very appropriate for a Springfield doggy. Too bad the museum guards won't let her anywhere near the Dr. Seuss memorial.
