Somewhere near the ambiguous spot between tiny tail, squishy hip and furry leg is sewn a special tag. In the case of Puppy, the tag provides full instructions about regular care and a few warnings to ensure his owners won't harm his appearance or usefulness. Today Mason came to me and asked what it (the tag) is.
That's a care instruction label.
What does it say?
Well, it says we should wash him in warm water and then dry him off. (It actually says: For all ages. Machine washable.)
And does it also say to rub his back?
Oh yes, it says take good care to rub his back and ears. (I say this as I squint at the label as if I'm reading it.)
And does it say we should feed him good food?
Yes, feed him good food and keep him warm. It says we should be very nice.
And not call him stupid?
And never call him stupid.
Oh that's good. I love Puppy. Hmmmmm. (Hugs ragged 'ol Puppy with all his might.)
I wish we all came with a care tag.
