From Our Department of Too Much Free Time:
First, let me get on the record as saying I'm not necessarily in favor putting clothes on dogs, with the exception of ballerina skirts on poodles.
Second, we had the dog shirt before we had the dog.
Third, I was not the one who bought the dog shirt.
Fourth, if you already have a dog shirt and you happen to have a dog handy, it wouldn't hurt anything to dress him up just once.
He'd be great at charades if the word was "Suburban sprawl".I like the way this photo captures his usual seated posture. More like a baby panda than a baby dog.
A beast can only take so much. Moments after we set him loose in his polo shirt, he tired his best to get out of it. He is not a dog to be accessorized. This photo also panders to the type of people who like to stare at chickweed in flowerbeds.
Still working on getting out, he alternates pulling on the shirt with soothing himself by means of his current favorite toy - the plastic end of a roll of wire fencing. FYI - our grass is dormant, not dead. DORMANT. How many times do I have to tell you?
He's trying hard to project an air of dignity. I regret that I subjected him to the abusive stunt of dressing him in a polo shirt with a popped collar. And posting pictures of it on the internet. For you to laugh at.
