January 14 was Dress Up Your Pet Day. I participated, of course…
When I was first adopted, I resisted getting dressed. I even tried to eat my coat!
But then I learned. Mom dresses me when we do therapy work at the veteran’s home or the library.
It makes people smile and it also helps me not to leave too many furs on them when they cuddle with me.
Plus it keeps me warm so I don’t shiver.
I like dressing up. It usually means something fun is about to happen.
In between dressing me and posting me, Mom was busy dressing up one of her stories. The simple beginning, middle, and end needed a fancy title, some colorful words, something sweet to make people smile,
a sassy character,
and some warmth and emotion.
Mom calls dressing up her stories revising. She used to resist revising – I mean, she didn’t try to eat her coat or anything, but she fought making changes to dress things up. Now she likes revising. It usually means something fun is about to happen. At least we HOPE so!
