Pug Poncho

What, you ask? Well, I just made a Halloween poncho for our son's girlfriend's pug, cute little pug's name is Haley, and maybe this will be a new line for me to create, Pets' Wear. I had so much fun and here are a few pics. I used a little stuffed dog our son's Grandmother made for him for my model - a pooch named Stripe.

Tidbit for today:

Always at Halloween, my Mom, who loved poetry, would gather us around her and read a poem, "LITTLE ORPHANT ANNIE", by James Whitcomb Riley, a writer of verse from Indiana.

Mr. Riley used his colloquial way of spelling, thus "orphant" rather than "orphan". Here's a small exerpt from the poem, perfect for Halloween (spoooooky...)

Little Orphant Annie's come to our house to stay,
An' wash the cups an' saucers up, an' brush the crumbs away,
An' shoo the chickens off the porch, an' dust the hearth, an' sweep,
An' make the fire, an' bake the bread, an' earn her board-an'-keep;
An' all us other childern, when the supper-things is done,
We set around the kitchen fire an' has the mostest fun
A-list'nin' to the witch-tales 'at Annie tells about,
An' the Gobble-uns 'at gits you
Ef you
