I had a lapse in judgment earlier this evening.
"Clearance" stickers occasionally have that effect.
I bought The Boy a hat.
It's basically a trucker cap for a dog. I realize this does not make it any better.
Because I'm trying to convince myself to return it, I haven't cut off the tag. So, from different angles, he looks like both a long-haul trucker and Minnie Pearl.
It's an Australia cap, see? And he's an Australian Cattle Dog. Get it?
And down by the kangaroo foot it reads, "Let me outback."
Yes, this is bad.
He really wears it rather well. Except when he shakes himself from tip to tail, as he is wont to do several times an hour, the cap slides off his ears and winds up under his chin.
Just so you know, I did not stoop to buying the matching shirt. Because my rule is that dog accessories are okay, but dog clothing is not. Cap = accessory. Still, I realize I'm skirting the edge here.
There was a cap for German dogs, too. I don't have a German dog anymore. I think this fact contributed to my lapse.
I'm just sayin'.
