White Dog cleared her throat and the White Dog Army fell back clearing a path for her to sniff the package that was laying on the chair. "It is from our good friends at Dachsies with Moxie," she informed them and then turned to me. "Well, aren't we going to open it?"
The White Dog Army crowded forward again, sniffing madly and throwing out guesses about what the small box held. I had to raise my arms to see over White floofy heads as I opened first the box and then the lovely colored tissue paper inside.
I clapped by hands in delight. "These are very special gifts for Taiko and Bella," I told them. "White Dog, perhaps you should do the honors." First we called Taiko forward. He come head lowered worried that he was somehow in trouble.
"Taiko the Tender Heart, Oh YES! Another White Dog, this is your official bandana of the White Dog Army. It is a heart gift handmade by WHN and sent by our wonderful friends so that whenever the WDA appears in public, all see you know you are one of us." He stood stock still as we tied on his scarf.
Bella squirmed and looked unsure. "Do not worry, little sister, I am confident that you are worthy to wear this scarf and will do us proud."
And now, all of the WDA will be readily identifiable for those who ask us, "How can you tell them apart, they all look alike?" You know, a white dog is a white dog is a white dog...NOT!
