Mr. Manners

With my visit to the dog show coming up, it was suggested that I brush up on my manners.
I found this dusty old book in the case. Maybe this will help.

Hmmmm, How to set a Formal Table, The Debutante, Manners for Motorists....

Here we go, 'The Fundamentals of Good Behavior'.

WHAT?? NO WAY!

Emily Post says '...not to attract attention to oneself in public is one of the fundamental rules of good breeding...' AND  'breakfast bacon should be eaten with a fork'

I guess she never met an Airedale....hee hee

  6. If one doesn't draw attention to herself in public, how in the world does one convince strangers to give her treats?

  10. Wyatt those rules just sound plain silly. Who doesn't want to get lots of attention when out in the street. Silly old book. Love your face in the last photo. No worries, and love, Stella and Rory

  11. It's OK Wyatt. Gail assures me that the rules for terrier are different. And don't involve forks.

  18. Something wrong with dat book, Wyatt. Like you says....old and dusty. Me tinks you should write your own book and tell it like it is!

    ReplyDelete
  19. Wyatt, we think it is time to rewrite the Book of Etiquette, and this time it should be penned by Wyatt, not Emily:)
