Never wear silk georgette around Bruce.

  1. Everyday I wear white clothes, I think “never wear white clothes with two border collies at home” but I think it too late, when I see brown feet on my clothes :) (sorry for approximative english from France)

  2. Bruce, I am sure Kate loves you anyway and the silk georgette incident will be forgotten soon. Over the years, my cats and dogs have been involved in many incidents like that, most recently in a big hole in a fine lace project some months ago. Honestly, I shouldn’t have left my knitting bag on the bed when I went to the kitchen. It was really stupid of me and I do know that cats can’t resist fine silk/cashmere yarn. And I should probably not wear that bright red colour anyway, middle aged ladies like me don’t look good in such bright shades…

  3. A cliffhanger, that. Just what happened, I wonder? But as I look at the newly-upholstered-sofa-just-before-dog, I think I have an idea…

  4. I had not heard of crêpe georgette (I am French) for ages ! This recalls me some very sweet memories of my grand mother teaching me how to sew, in the bright light of my summer holidays, well, 30 years ago. Thanks for this recalling, Bruce.

  5. I had a similar experience with a brand new open weave Betty Jackson coat and our Greyhound, Storm…..massive snag.

  6. i would also add china cabinets…our Doberman accidentally caught her collar on a tiny door handle and, in her panic, almost brought down an entire cabinet filled with 12 place settings of family heirloom Wedgewood, Royal Doulton figurines, and assorted wine glasses. Luckily my husband has good reflexes and immediately jumped in to free her. Damages: one wine glass and a bent door hinge. Could have been so much worse, but happily, the Dobie is fine and the collectables survived to be passed on to another generation. Ya gotta love our furry friends.

  7. There are whole categories of clothing styles and fabric types and colours that become forbidden when a lively dog enters your family.

  8. Woody would like Bruce to know that he has proudly ripped holes in jumpers, skirts, sheets and balls of wool, chewed vital pieces of lego and duplo – but – has yet to find some silk georgette. However, the day is yet young!

  9. The eternal joys of being a pet owner are never ending…:) We have 4 cats and two dogs in our family and I am forever strategically placing things to keep them out of the way of any number of 4 legged creatures…Thankfully cute goes a long way –

  10. I have no silk georgette, so you are welcome to send Bruce down to Staffordshire. I promise I’ll take good care of him!
