The School of Flaunt

Back when "Flying Was Fun" Alexandra Smythe and Cate Clarke were Flight Attendants with a Major International Carrier. Prior to Private Jets coming into vogue, Alexandra and Cate traveled in the First Class World, meeting and greeting the top celebrities, politicians who would become Presidents, nouveau riche, and yes the occasional Headline Grabbing Criminal in Handcuffs!

What the two ladies viewed and experienced became fodder for the School of Flaunt, so much money, such bad taste and oh those terrible manners. Something had to be done! Hence, The School of Flaunt Handbook was born. Read More

Lesson Sixteen

Never a Bowl of Fish--- Have an Aquarium!

Our Pets

Need we go any further than the above statement?

Not a mixed breed, a Show Dog.

Not just a horse, but a Hunter-Jumper.

Not a tom cat, but a Siamese.

Not a parakeet, a pair of Finches.

If one of the "Nots" has stolen your heart, at least give him or her a regal name. Please no Spot, Shadow, Elvis or Bingo. Try a little elegance like: Natasha, Kingsley or our personal fave, Mavis Astor. We particularly like Mavis Astor since she is a Yorkie who lives on the Gold Coast in Chicago but then we digress. If your small child or grandchild should come up with one of those unfortunately common names you might be stuck. We guess your friends may consider you quaint or old fashioned. If someone is new to your home and you are introducing your pet, you might add here that the children named it and you rescued it! Save some face students.

Remember, everyone always think highly of someone who rescues those poor unfortunate animals. Frankly, it is beyond us how anyone could dump their dog or cat which has done nothing but love you. These people will never be SOF material. Maybe some jail time might improve their attitude toward man's best friend. But we will get off of our soap box, for we think you know where we stand on this topic.

Students always be sure your pet has the finest in cages, collars, leashes, tanks and beds. Speaking of bedding, most of our little darlings manage to end up as permanent house guests. As well they should. How depressing to see some poor bedraggled dog or cat, hovering near the back door on a rainy night! Shame on you students if you ever put man's best friend through such an indignity! Oh, here we go again, we'll stop.

You have only to visit your local Pet Boutique to avail yourself of the latest and greatest in pet accouterments….sparing no expense, of course. Remember, you will be judged on the sidewalks and dog runs with your charges. Make sure both you look as stylish and befitting as one of your stature should. Riding the elevator with a wet, bedraggled hound is such a downer. If they had been wearing a cute jacket and booties this would not have been an issue. But just in case you were caught in an unexpected downpour have your staff at the ready with warm towels; not only for you students but have the doggies get the needed rub downs too.

The School of Flaunt handbook in Lesson 16 will go into detail about Pet accoutrements. Additionally we will give "Insider" tips on taking your puppy to the show ring! Hello Westminster Kennel Club!

Please tell us about your Pets and how you shower them with affection and luxury!

Treats for all!

Smythe and Cadbury-Clarke....now where is Mavis Astor?

Mavis: It is so refreshing to know that you own "good" parents that shower you with all of their love and leave nothing to chance as for your comforts in life. I especially approved of your name Mavis Astor, for as you can see my parents made sure that everyone knew they appreciated good champagne when they gave me a regal name. I hope that we will meet on Michigan Avenue sometime. We can stop for lunch and exchange recipes for homemade dog cookies. I certainly hope that your parents prepare those for you too! If not, not to worry they will after they get my recipes. Now go out and strut your stuff and let all of those other canines know what a true SOF canine is made out of! Waggin my tail back at you .... Dom Perignon

Greetings Ladies --- Warmest wishes from Chicago! My! Such large compliments to match my big personality from this diminuative Diva! I am so fortunate to own the parents that I do as they've showered me with nothing but the best. From my own personal set of Louis Vuitton luggage for travel, Buberry Slickers for both rainy days and damp walks along Lake Michigan, to my personal favorite - a fur coat most enjoyed when worn while holiday shopping down Michigan Avenue in the wintertime. I feel so chic during those times. Bows, ribbons, and bandanas are not "my thing" as I have jewelery with which to adorn myself that would make Liz Taylor envious. My intent isn't to brag (as that is so non-SOF) but to express my gratitude to the privileged life I am so fortunate to have as well as express my gratitude for your enouragement of others to think of their own pets as well in the manner in which they'd like to be accustomed to. Air kisses and a wag of the tail! xo Mavis Astor.
