  1. “WOMEN IN HISTORY celebration…You are encouraged to wear a costume honoring your favorite woman in history…”

    Can I wear a pink, knit p*n*s hat honoring Krista Suh, creator of the Pussyhat Project?

  2. Dennis Paine,

    That is quite a tail — it gives one paws.
    You are most welcome to wear whatever suits you, sir.
    There are no specific guide lines but I think you’ll be the only gent in pink.

  3. Chloe, Yes indeed — there have been exceptional dog whisperers who have evaluated dogs for the last several years. I’ve seen them work miracles.
    They are adept at understanding problems between doggies and their people.
    With keen observations, they’ve treated both with amazing results. Agreed,
    it’s a funny concept but it’s real and it works.
    Thanks for posting your comment.
