Clothing for dogs?

I’ve long known that there were peo­ple who inflict indig­ni­ties like sweaters and even tiny lit­tle boots on their canine com­pan­ions. I had no idea that the dog­gy fash­ion had become so very fash­ion­able, though.

Then I saw it. One moment I’m sur­round­ed by bird feed­ers and cat toys, the next, there it is: an entire row of Canine Cou­ture.

I called Katie to my side to make sure I wasn’t hal­lu­ci­nat­ing, but no, she saw it too. We brought home pho­to­graph­ic evi­dence, not expect­ing you to believe us with­out it.

Very tacky Brocade Dog Dress, mostly red and black

That par­tic­u­lar “dress” was the most eye-catch­ing of this season’s dog fash­ion — at least, what that Tar­get is car­ry­ing.

We were very hap­py to come home to our sharp-clawed cats, safe in the knowl­edge that they would nev­er per­mit such a thing.

I saw those at Tar­get the last time I was there, too. Oh, my! :p My mom gets sweaters for her rat-pig dog. A chi­hauha mix, I call her rat pig because chihauha’s are rat dogs to me, and her nose looks like a pig. :p Any­way, my mom says she buys sweaters for her because she gets cold. I say she just shakes because she’s neu­rot­ic and needs prozac. :p

Many dogs have issues with being made to wear some­thing; the only rea­son my family’s col­lie stopped tak­ing off a flower-head­band that was made for him was because he real­ized he was get­ting more atten­tion on Hal­loween as a “col­lie-flower”.

I’ve seen it, but I don’t under­stand it.

That com­forts me some­how. Thank you dear 🙂
