A word from the Mer-Dog

Our Independence Day celebration was the best ever.  In keeping with the theme 'From Sea to Shining Sea', Mother made me a Mer-Dog costume.
My costume is made from Timtex, painted with acrylic and garnished with glitter.  Mother used my raincoat for the pattern, and one of her old t-shirts to make the fastener ties so it was comfortable for me to wear.
At 10:30 we went to the top of Main Street to line up for the big Parade.
Mother made a little sign so People would know I was a Mer-dog.  I was very patient waiting with all the other People and Dogs.
Finally the parade started, and I walked with the Big Pack of Other Dogs.  There were over twenty of us Dogs, and no one fought because we were this Big Pack, see.
After the parade there was a Dog Variety Show and I won for Best Costume.  I think I would have won Most Obedient as well, but there was a poor little miniature poodle who did not have a costume and the judges gave her that award.  I was glad we all got prizes.  That lady in the red coat is our friend the Vet Assistant, and she was giving out Lots of Treats to everyone. 
Some of my friends from the Big Pack at the Dog Variety Show.
I hope you had as much fun as I did yesterday.  Bye for now, love from Flossy


  1. Oh, Flossy, I love your Mer-Dog costume. Your mom did such a great job. Congrats on your win.
    Sending purrs and meows from your cousin BeeGee.

  2. HA HA HA a good laugh I had !!! Flossy (ánd Sus) you're the best !!!

  3. Flossy the Mer-dog, your costume is ADORABLE! Maybe when the water warms up you could impress the Big Pack with your Mer-dog swimming skills too! xo

  4. Flossie looks like she's loving her new look!

  5. Flossy, you should write more posts you have a way with words. I have never seen a mer-dog before, you are beautiful.

  6. okay I just squealed out loudly at gorgeous Flossie as a merdog. She is soooooo cute I love her!

    "Mother" does ask quite a lot of her Flossie but Flossie does her best to please mother heeheehee!
