Dog toys and a forgotten airline.

PSA. Pacific Southwest Airlines. Or was it Pacific Southern Airways ? They must have stopped flying twenty five years ago. Some dimly remembered story about a disgruntled employee, a gun, and a BAe 146 jetliner. In a San Diego museum a collection of the airlines stewardess uniforms. The 70's fashions as alien as ancient history.

To a dog store. The woman behind the counter talkative but uninformed. All the toys apparently wonderful. '' That one's unbreakable " she says pointing towards what appears to be a squeaky Osama bin Laden. I ask her what sort of dog she has. She doesn't. This puts her sales patter in context.

We debate whether to buy an inflatable injury collar. '' Wouldn't they bite through it ? " asks 'the font'. ' Not a problem that I've heard about ' says the talkative woman before adding  ' but there again they might '.


  1. It always pays to be an informed consumer.
    I like the idea of an inflatable injury collar, though I've never had the occasion to use one..... but I'm sure it would be good to have it on hand just in case.
    An Osama Bin Laden dog toy? Whatever next? I was wondering what it was until I read your narrative.

  2. Bite resistant. LOL. That company has never met Jack. He eats concrete blocks just to warm up his teeth! :)

  3. Somehow when you were wearing some of those fashions, they didn't seem as ridiculous!

    Don't think Osama could go very many rounds. At least not in this house.

    XXXOOO Daisy, Bella & Roxy

  4. Let's hope they can't bite through the inflatable collar.
    Apple will be sporting one this afternoon.
