The purple pearl ribbon

Ribbons (DS)/Bows (3DS) are accessories that go onto a dog's neck or ears. The location of the ribbon or bow on the dog depends on the shape of the dog's ears. If the dog has ears that flop down (such as a labrador, golden retriever, dachshund, or cavalier), there will be two ribbons or bows, one on each ear. If the dog has ears that point up (such as a chihuahua, german shepherd, boxer, or husky), there will be one ribbon or bow that appears on the dog's neck, like a bow tie. Unlike other things, each ribbon has their own description.
