The whole pack has come down with the dreaded canine lurgie brought in by who else but kennel-cough-Flo. Despite having had a vaccination, Doug's got it bad. And because it's impossible to walk out of a vet surgery under $70, boynton is guilty of that bad behaviour: consulting the internet and adminstering home remedies instead. This means kid's cough medicine and steam therapy - standing in the bathroom while we shower. Of course he used to follow boynton there by choice in the days when his separation anxiety was at its zenith, now he stands about anxiously but politely on the cold tiles.
Perhaps it would be less of an endurance if he was fitted out with these acessories: robe, reversible towel and had his own bathroom hook.

The canine bathroom robe catalogue led to an amazing discovery - a parka for dogs. Boynton previously discussed her increasing affiliation with this item of apparel, but if the dogs started wearing parkas, where would that leave boynton?! She'd probably have to be like the merry spinster herself and don some homespun dog hair wear. The Samoyed looks rather stylish.
Wearing anything made from chiengora in public invites comments, questions and even an occasional pat on the back...

in any case, better to be a merry spinster than a bittery twister

Comments: homespun

Boynton - in relative terms, those dog parkas are stylish...

Gee thanksalot Nora. Lucky I've never tried to be stylish. Just seeing if I can possibly get away with "a form of swinging anti-cool" (my new credo)

Must Unfashionable Terrier's Sou'Wester

still- one's unfashionable ' wardrobe eventually starts to exhibit retro-cool...

(well - I'm running with that theory anyway, Tony. And so is the pack.)

If you run with the pack you pick up bad company.

She hasn't wound up drinking with me yet so boynton still has a way to fall.

she usually only falls if there are bubbles in the drink
