Do I have my dog in tow or do I have my dog in toe?


(I think it's in tow but DH thinks it's in toe - he's almost always wrong though!!).

Is there a dictionary of american expressions online?

Thanks

It's "IN TOW" but I wouldn't use that term when talking about walking with an animal! Its more likely to be used when someone is towing a car or something!

it's "in tow" :magwink.

If you said "in toe", you would mean that you had your dog in one of the little appendages protruding from the end of your foot :p.

That said, it's acceptable to say you have your child or dog "in tow," especially when you want to give the impression that you are sort of dragging them (and all of their accoutrements ) along behind you. :)

Hope this was of some help.

tell 'im to think about it logically. TOWING a car.. means pulling it around right??? Towing means "taking with, taking around etc"
toe is.. well.. a TOE. part of your foot

:rofl


cute though!
