Over the past few years the Japan Trend Shop has been my “go-to” web site for cutting edge beauty aids. And I have benefited greatly.
The Beauty Nose Butterfly Clip has firmed and tightened my nose, creating my perfect proboscis profile.
Then there's the Popeka Anti-Aging Mouthpiece. My cheeks and jaws now look 15 years younger as a result of blowing into the magical mouthpiece.
And we cannot forget the Beauty Voice Trainer. Thanks to that miraculous device, I now sound exactly like Celine Deon or Whitney Houston (depending on which song I’m singing).
So you can imagine my excitement when I noticed that the Japan Trend Shop has a new product for dogs.
Kevin wasn't quite as happy.
"Kevin, look what I found on the Japan Trend Shop web site!" I said enthusiastically. "The Oppo Dog Muzzle Quack Duck Bill Designer Pet Protection!"
I pointed the I-Pad in Kevin’s direction.
He began to slink away.
I read Kevin the product description:
"It might well often be compulsory for your pooch to wear a muzzle when out and about, but that doesn't mean it needs to be boring! Bright, fun and with a touch of the bizarre, these Oppo Dog Muzzles will transform your familiar canine friend into a semi-duck, designer "billed" dog."
I got goosebumps. Imagine being able to transform my canine friend into a semi-duck! A designer "billed" dog.
But it was $44, a bit out of my price range.
"Come on Kevin! Let's go to the Dollar Store!"
It didn't long to find what I needed to make my own Nerdling Version of the The Oppo Dog Muzzle Quack Duck Bill Designer Pet Protection: one sparkly yellow foam visor and some scissors.
It was simple to make. And Kevin looked so dapper in his new bill. But there was something missing. He needed something else to complete his look.
Then it struck me (no pun intended). Kevin needed his Thunderjacket.
Kevin says he wants his dignity back.
I have no idea what he's talking about.
