katlaughing dear...Don't take the crude doggie fashion joke too hard. After all, you tempered it by saying it was for the humane society and as everyone knows, the humane society gives out free elbow and knee pads...because they are so humane!!! And if the whole doggie fashion bit is just unbearable (crude as you stated), then many humane societies will give you breath spray for your dog...because they are so humane.
Art...Sorry, I thought you had moved already. We have nine cats and I am forever plagued with that litter under the nails problem.
