Chairman Bao is a Shih Tzu. We travel a lot. I drive. He watches. We've logged at least 10,000 miles and he's never once said, Sweetheart, don't you think you should stop and ask someone?

We returned from Mexico to learn that Bao had won the Tacky Tourist Award as the best-dressed dog at The Last Wag of Summer.

Bao, tacky?

Shorn, perhaps. But not tacky. Never, ever tacky.

Besides, we didn't even know it was a competition. It was a hot, Tucson Saturday morning. Details Art & Design, a local art gallery, was launching a Humane Society cookbook and dogs (accompanied by their humans) were invited. Dress up, said the invitation. So we dressed up. Well, Bao dressed up.

Turned out, Bao was the only dog who dressed. So we won, by default. (Except we didn't know it was a contest) All the other dogs were great, big dogs. So Bao went and hid under a table. And that's where a photographer from the Arizona Star found him, and took his picture, which was published while we were away. Bao, cowering. I'll share it when I figure out how to scan it. Actually, maybe I won't.

Meanwhile, this is what he was wearing. Tacky? I don't think so. Do you?

One could surmise any dog who allows himself to be "dressed" is tacky! I won't even wear my expensive Muttluks in the winter. They're for wooses!

Tacky? Of course not. Bao looks very colorful and stylish!
