New Fabric!

Woo, everypup and everycat! It's me, Dave, Guide Dog for the Color Blind. Did you catch in our post from Tuesday that Mom and I said we got new fabrics in?!? I was so excited! Two packages in one day! Mom got the one the mailman brought first and took it out back to take some pix of it. WHAT?!? Without me?!?!? I stood at the door in total disbelief!

"Mom?!? What are you doing?"

I couldn't even look. How could she do that without me? I think my Sad Eyes Look got to her, and she brought it in and let me go through it.

"You know how fond I am of blue!"

It was blue batiks... Mom and I both love blue. I was all over them. Before I knew it, she popped them into the washing machine and said, "Just wait 'til you see our other order, Davy!" And then... just when I thought it couldn't get any better... the FedEx man showed up with these:

"Look! It's like a pickle nose fabric!"

I went crazy for the purple camo - as did Mom. She's been looking everywhere for purple camo! But check that black and white print! It's like ... camo for my snooter!

Snooter camo!

See what I mean? Can you even see me there?

The really cool part is that Mom didn't even order the black and white fabric, but she loves it. The people at that store sent it to her as a goodwill gesture. I'd say that's mighty nice! Anyway, so then Mom said she wanted to see "how the black and white looked on the purple camo". Those were her exact words. And so ...

The black and white on purple camo

... I obliged! I think I look mighty good there, don't you?

"I think this Black and White looks perfect on the purple camo, Mom!"

As her Guide Dog for the Color Blind, I know Mom cherishes my guidance. Oddly, she said I wasn't exactly the black and white she meant; she was talking about the black and white fabric. Oh. I think she should have been more specific, don't you?

"How about double Black and White on purple camo?"

I think I look rather dashing, don't you?

"Great combo, Mom - really!"

I think I see a Davy bed or a pillow for me in this deal! I'll keep you posted!

  7. Dave, you are such an obliging dog - no way would we model all those fabrics!
    You are right the purple against the black and white is stunning.
    the black and white on the black and white is stunning too and will be useful for those occasions where you want to disappear!

    Perhaps she could make a bag for a dalmation with the black and white!
