A local madman and his skinny dog were shuffling along the roadside when to his surprise, the ‘Royal Carriage’ passed them by. To the man’s astonishment he saw some expensive fabric thrown from the carriage, so he ran and grabbed the beautiful fabric, then carefully attached it around his beloved dog’s neck. Now his own dog looked like royalty too.
The man’s heart was bursting with pride at how handsome the expensive fabric made his dog look, but as the days went on, the fabric filled with all manner of crumbs and food scraps and the once beautiful fabric began to stiffen. More days passed, and the stiffened fabric was restricting his beloved dog from many of his normal practices, so the time had come for the man to consider removing the contraption from his dog’s neck.
On this particular day, the mad man and his skinny dog were shuffling along the roadside again when an expensive looking carriage was heading toward them. With the clanging of the harness and the heavy thud of the team of hooves, it caught the man’s eye. As the carriage passed, the passenger yelled from inside the carriage for the driver to ‘Halt’. The carriage door opened, the steps dropped down, and the shiny shoes of a wealthy person appeared. Out stepped the famous French veterinarian Dr. Jean Paul Goat. He approached the madman and offered him several gold coins for the ‘contraption’ around the skinny dog’s neck. The man was overjoyed and gladly made the exchange!
Jean Paul Goat reboarded his carriage, clasping the ‘contraption’ to his heart. The Veterinarian Cone Collar was born. Jean Paul Goat went on to have several sons, but one in particular went into the fashion industry where he became famous after Madonna wore one of his creations during her worldwide stage show. His creation is better known as: The Cone Bra.
People know this son as Jean Paul Gaultier and the humble cone made him famous. Whenever you wear a cone, you are dressed in haute couture, and wearing a cone collar can make you feel fierce. Every runway in every fashion capital demands ‘fierceness’ so own it and strut your own fierce style. What you are wearing has royal roots, so when your human looks at you with watery eyes, strike a pose and hold your head high. wearing your cone collar and remember what Jean Paul Goat says: “Cardboard IS the new black !”
Suggestion: practice your own fierce style strut to this song: Bad Romance = PepiRama & LadyGaGa:
Rah-rah-ah-ah-ah, Rama, PepiRama
GaGa oh la la, Want your stinky toy bad romance!
Walk, walk fashion baby, Work it, move that kibble crazy
Walk walk fashion baby, Work it, move that kibble crazy.
Rah-rah-ah-ah-ah, Rama, PepiRama
GaGa, ooh la la, Want your stinky toy bad romance.
Note: (The veterinarian cone collar contraption is still being used on animals throughout the world today.)
