Board No. 114 - Blue Dogs

I have been rereading "Travels With Charley" by John Steinbeck, something I do every few years around this time of the year - the book takes place over a three month period from just after Labor Day to winter, and captures all seasons in Steinbeck's trip across the country. It's one of my all-time favorite books and I take away something completely different from it each time I read it, depending on where I am in my life. Well, I am doing this post to honor one of the main characters, someone who set the spirit of the ride: Charley, Steinbeck's aging French blue poodle.

Top row: Plaid Like Dad - Blue Plaid Dog Leash from BigDoggyBling; Eco Dog Coat from anniessweatshop; Custom Collar - Blue Argyle from FidosFashionCollars
Middle row: Heavy Duty Copper Washer Tag from PoochyCouture; Doggie Tug Rope from kavali8; Anti-Flea Flea Bag Heart in Blue Plaid from Fionahayes
Bottom row: Personalized Rope and Ball Dog Toy from mollymagic; Grandpa's Favorite Golf Pants Collar or Leash from TheModDog; Upcycled Umbrella Dog Rain Coat from RecyclingZychal

Even though I was looking for blue-colored dog supplies, I came across this mail/letter holder and had to share it with you. I just think it's fantastic and looks pretty similar to Charley himself!
