Conspicuous Consumption

November 6, 2006

From time to time, Orange Bear enjoys flipping through the Orvis Dog Book. (When he digs through Mr. Crumpet’s mail pile, he’ll ignore Orvis’s non-canine-centric catalogs.)

“But you’re not a dog,” points out Mr. Crumpet, quite rightly.

“Should only dogs experience the joys of the Supreme Polyfilled Dog Nest?” asks Orange Bear. “I think not.”

Manchester, Vermont-based retailer Orvis is known for its outstanding customer service and support of conservation efforts worldwide, including the recent project to curb the decline of brookies (brook trout) in Maine’s own Rapid River.

“All right,” adds Orange Bear, “I admit the dog biscuits are a little bland.”

“That means they’re good for you, Orange Bear.”
