Hello, scholars. It's time for your back-to-college buy-a-thon--the annual search for as much "rah rah" stuff as you can afford. Whether your school is Stanford or Pierce junior college, you will probably buy at least a few items with the school logo proudly emblazoned on the front or side.
But what about the precious loved ones you leave behind--those semiskilled creatures who never got beyond obedience school? Don't they deserve more than just a pat or a scratch for the moral support they gave during your lower-ed years?
If that's a "yes," then here's a way to include them in your academic odyssey. Travel online to http://www.PetsCollegiate Wear.com. There you'll find a catalog of clothes emblazoned with college logos, only in miniature. They're meant for cats and dogs who celebrate the life of intellect and team sports.
Hooded sweats, cotton T-shirts, caps, faux leather bomber jackets, denim vests, nylon collars and leashes are all elegantly inscribed with official school logos--at prices starting at $10.
If you phone in your order to (310) 798-7571, prepare to know your playmate's size. Just measure your pet along his/her back, from the neck to the base of the tail. Chihuahuas are generally 8-12 inches; shepherds and retrievers are 24-30 inches.
