Tomokee as fashion model

And here is Tomokee, sporting a lovely wool hand knitted and felted tote, stylishly worn as a messenger bag.

I finished this knitted project and persuaded Tomokee to model it for my knitting blog.

Tomokee as Curtis Sliwa

We've posted this photo of Tomokee before, but we turned into a sign for our recent garden party to discourage people from walking into the house from the patio because we left Tomokee inside for part of the time. We think he looks like a more colorfully dressed Curtis Sliwa.

Since we're doing dog-in-hat photos, I thought I'd take a photo with yet another hat. We're not sure who he looks like here.

They're Italian, you know

We've always had ergonomic issues with Tomokee's food and water bowls. (That would be human ergonomic issues - not canine ones). The water bowl is too hard to hold and balance without sloshing when it's full. Tomokee is a big-time drinker, so we always fill it almost to the brim. The food bowl is hard to pick up from floor. Last weekend, we were in the Lake Tahoe area, and I went shopping at Dog.Dog.Cat, a fun pet food and supply store. They had these cool bowls on sale. The cutouts make them easy to pick up and carry. They're made in Italy, and anything made in Italy is always cool looking.
Here are Tomokee's old bowls.
