It wasn’t polka dots, however we will always remember
her wearing this polka dot ribbon
the day we collected her.
Soon after arriving at her new home
she was registered with the local council
and wears an identity tag on her collar.
In fact, she wears two collars.
One is a ‘pretty’ collar with her name
and phone number embroidered into it.
The other, made of leather, is more functional
and is the one used to tie her up at her kennel.
several hours of chewable bones…
…a snack, anything will do…
