A Dog's Foray Into an Outdated Wardrobe

Yesterday, my sister and I were talking about getting a friend for Baerli.

Me: Should we get a girl dog or a boy dog?

Lizzie: Maybe we should get a girl dog, then Baerli can have a girl friend. And we could put cute bows in her fur.

Me: But Baerli's not technically a boy dog anymore, he's an it. We could probably get away with putting bows in his fur.

Lizzie: Mom has some old dresses in her closet we could put on him.

The next half hour we spent raiding the old dresses and clothes in my mom's closet and we found some goodies. Here are my favorite outfits on my patient, treat-loving dog.

He looks like a circus dog:


My sister was laughing so hard she could hardly lift him up enough to show off Baerlie's hot 80's jumper:


The vest with a lovely clashing peasant skirt:

My sister got jealous of his fabulous skirt:

And one last picture of him trying to tear of his flame bandana:

We sometimes put lovely outfits on our poor, poor cats. They should maybe get together with your dog and talk about their cruel owners.

I was just wishing my dog was small & a girl yesterday so he could wear a cute shirt that says princess on it, this has inspired me.

I like the vest. I'm half expecting him to begin doing a Russian dance.

You guys are having far too much fun. I will not let my 7 year old see these photos. Our poor dog would suffer.... :)

Those are hilarious! I like the one of him in the peasant skirt best. I could never get away with that with my cats. They would find some way to murder me in my sleep.
