Old, New, Mostly Borrowed And One Blue

You May Lick the Bride

If you own a dog or perhaps even a couple of dogs, like me, I am sure, you will talk to them as though they were human – you know they will never answer you but you live in hope!
Whilst researching dresses for the exhibition I stumbled on a website called Urban Pup (http://www.urbanpup.com/) and discovered there was such things as wedding dresses/tuxedos for dogs. 
Dogs and cats have been dressed by humans for years (poor things) … I used to dress my dog up and push it around the garden in my doll’s pram when I was child and I am sure some of you who read this blog have done the same.  Not my granny though, my granny had a monkey when she was a child which she used to dress up and push around in a pram.  I remember the day I discovered she had a monkey .. no mention had ever been made of this fact to me in the past.  After my granny’s death, we were looking through some photograph albums and I noticed this black and white photograph with a particularly ugly baby featured.  When I asked my mum who this ugly baby was she replied …’of that was my mum’s monkey’.. as if it was the most normal thing in the world!  What normaly person had a monkey to play with as a child?  Apparently, it got too wild and it was packed off to Glasgow Zoo.
The Bride and Groom
Back to reality, I contacted Urban Pup and a very helpful lady called Allison Cosgrove was only too pleased to offer some items for the the exhibition.  So, when you visit the exhibition you will be able to see a dog bride and groom … I would have loved my dogs, Magpie and Dora, to model them but I decided that was a bad idea.  So Alison has kindly agreed to lend two canine mannequins too.  I can tell you that Miss Dora Dog and Mr M Pie are not happy with my decision.
