Closed - Item number one

This item is CLOSED
Many thanks to Miss Barbara
for her generous bid.
Hi pals, it is me, Gussie here to describe the
first item in the Auction to help my good pal Butcho

Today we have a lovely scarf, for all the muzzer types out there.
Personally, I think it would make a most elegant kerchief for a dog about
my size, but muzzer says to forget it.

OK...This is a square scarf, no tags, probably ca. 1960s or early 70s.
Fabric composition is not silk, but probably a blend of poly whatever and rayon,
based on the feel and "hand" (or paw) of the fabric.
Primary colors are White, Blue and Red, with assorted
doggie colors represented. There are 52 dogs
shown two times each on the scarf, but there
are some duplicates of breed in different poses or costumes.
(Like the ever popular WFT!) You can click on the picture to bigify it,
(I hope)
Now, this is the left hand side of the right hand side shown above,
but of course, with the amma choore photographer helping me, they
look like two sides of entirely different scarfs, right. But you can see
more of the doggies represented. We tried to get close-ups, but
recognized the limitations of the cheap help around here.
The scarf measures about 20 inches square.
Muzzer says a 21 inch square is more common, so I
ask you, once again, to learn to live with her disabilities.
She says to tell you it is exactly as long as the inside of her right arm
from her thumb to her shoulder.

It is in very good condition, no stains or pulls or tears
EXCEPT for the little snaggy place shown above.
Muzzer says it can either be overcast or hand rolled one
more turn and basted. I told her to keep her paws off of it.

The starting bid on this item is $2.50 USD
Shipping is paid for by the muzzer, and will most likely
be via Yak train or something like that. If you want it in
time for Memorial day, you will have to chip in the addl. postage.

Now, $2.50 does not buy a lot of Pheeno Barbie Doll, so remember
what we are bidding for.

This auction will close at 12:00 pm EDT on May 23. 2011
Have a good time!

What a great idea and what an important cause. We could've guessed that you and Muzzer and Teka would come up with such a good plan for Butchy.

We're catching up now ... pleased to see that Barbara won the scarf. Moma has long had an eBay search for doggie related scarves. This one is fabbers!
