Many of you know the Portuguese Water Dogs. There are 8 of them, along with 2 other dogs: that is quite a household, isn't it? Anyway, every year, they celebrate Portuguese Water Dog Day on June 10, and invite their friends to wear bandanas of the "Color of the Year". Of course, Thor has to support his friends.
Now, Thor is just plain to big for a bandana; he'd need a blanket folded in a triangle. And it's just too flippin' hot for that. So, Thor's human thought long and hard about this. Eventually, I concluded that Thor is an English gentleman, and needed an ascot. Sadly, ascots don't seem to be available for a 33" neck, so I was on my own for this one. The need to be drool proof was another consideration; a standard silk ascot wasn't going to cut it.
So, Thor's Momma decided to make him a green chintz ascot, complete with the required pleats to make the wings hang properly.
Oh, Mark, do I have to wear this thing???
Oh, all right, I'll let you adjust it. You're a good boy.
See, I'm being good. I'll even wave to all of my friends.
Remember to visit the Porties tomorrow, and see the hundreds of dogs celebrating Green Bandana Day! You'll see me there!
Happy Thorsday, everyone!
