Milly loves her dog Hugo. And she LOVES dressing up Hugo in bows.
Hugo loves Milly, but Hugo does NOT like wearing bows. Not frilly ones or sparkly ones or bows with jewels. One day Milly comes home with a pink poka-dotted bow and much to Hugo’s disgust, she put the bow on his collar. NOOOOO! Hugo is embarrassed and know all his dog friends are laughing at him on his ways. He loves Milly, but Hugo has had enough!
Finally, seeing no other option, Hugo can’t take it anymore and he runs away! Life is lonely without Milly and when he looks around he sees many dogs with their owners – with bows and all. Maybe bows aren’t so dreadful after all—and maybe life is better with a friend by your side. Hugo has an idea. Pink filly bows are not his cup of tea, but he is excited about the notion of having a very stylish bow-tie. Will Millie agree”
