While the use of the neckerchief among us humans is on a steady decline, there is a trend among dog owners to dress up their poodle or mongrel with a colourful bandana.
Some 30 years ago, while frequenting one of my favorite Amsterdam cafe's, I remember this big old hairy thing always lying under one of the tables, a red bandana tied around his neck. I liked it.
These days it's a wholesale business; they're even ready-tied with a buckle for you and available from every self-respecting pet store.
It's sad when looking cool is so readily available for the masses...
