Is it just too ridiculous to want to buy things like clothing for a dog? I was wondering tonight about that very thing. I was at work and was telling the Enrolled Nurse about my little Papillons and how one of them is only very young and doesn’t have all her thick fur as yet. She looked at me strangely which lead me to explain the lack of fur… the cold weather and doggie clothes.
The other night I went a bit nuts and ordered another Pink Argyle ski jumper for’Lolly’ (the one we bought ‘Lovey’ was too small) from the US. It will take a few weeks for delivery. I also ordered a few bits and bobs from an Australian doggie clothing online shop. I bought 2 sets of pyjamas for her and a tshirt. Do you think that’s silly? I have to keep telling myself it’s the right thing to do because she is so cold.
When I look at ther little back legs, they are thinner than the drumstick of a chicken and you can see pink skin beneath it.
So there’s definitely no fur there to keep the poor little bugger warm. No darn it! It’s not silly.
I do however refuse to buy a wedding dress or party clothes covered in Rhinestones and sequins! That is out of the question.
Hubby says to me… ‘If you think I’m going to take out 2 tiny little dogs wearing frilly dresses for a walk, you’re out of your bloody mind!’ Ooooh the visual I get of that is freaky! Hubby is about 6 foot 3 and even without the dogs wearing clothes he still looks a bit odd taking them out on a lead for a walk! I told him once… ‘Honey, It takes a big man to walk a little dog!’ He does it now and doesn’t care but the frills are a definite no no!
