I received the typical "dogs dressed up" in an email this past week, and there's NOTHING I love like a dog in costume. In fact, a few Halloweens ago, we dressed ours up as a cow (and yes, that is an UDDER). I was struck at how different The Offspring looked back then (on the right): I used to dress the dog up in sweaters. However, the hubby insisted that I was making our dog "gay" by doing so and finally disallowed the dog/sweater phase of our relationship. (I will share some cute photos of that in another post.) Then again, I can't imagine that having a dog's testicles removed would have ANYTHING to do with his sexuality. Right? I mean, that's NOTHING. But a SWEATER? Forcing a dog to wear a SWEATER? Yeah - I am warping our dog's sexual identity. Ha.
At any rate, here are my favorite dog costume photos from that email:Is anyone else wondering how long that balloon stayed inflated? And did the poor dog have to walk around all night like this? And WHAT is that balloon attached to? Granted, it is a little better than our dog's cow impersonation.Two scary things about this photo: 1) The dog seems WAY TOO HAPPY to be wearing a "Hello Kitty" hat. 2) This was done, from all appearances, in a professional photography studio. This is the best costume of the year, IMHO. LOVE the hooves.
So, do you dress your pets?
