Time to bring out the winter woolies!
Here we have Brett and Jeremy's pup Lucy. Here is what B had to say about it:
"Doesn't matter if you love to clothe your animals or not; look at the pitiful face on my Lucy when her Daddy Jeremy put a sweater on her. I don't know if she's just unhappy to have it on, or unhappy with his fashion sense, but she looks like she could burst into tears at any moment."
Now I know Dragon will have fits about this, as he does every time a pet appears here in clothes or a hat or whatever. Personally, I don't think the animal cares one way or another. A cat might, but not a dog. Dogs have stuck by our side for tens of thousands of years and they aim to please us and gladly humor us in our pet craziness. They hunt with us, protect us, work with cops, help the disabled and so much more. They are a pack animal and recongnize us as the leader of the pack (or at least they should!)
And face it, some breeds, like that hairless Mexican dog, really NEED a coat or sweater if they live in a cold climate to go for walks.
And dogs with special needs are the fault of humans, for breeding dogs for certain characteristics that aren't practical. When you breed for unique or crazy looks, it's like Frankenstien's monster, or an aging Hollywood actress who went too far with the cosmetic surgery and looks like a blow-up doll with a frozen face. Plus, it causes physical problems in many breeds. Short legs strain backs; overly pushed-in faces cause breathing problems and so on.
Back to Lucy's sweater. B, I don't think she is unhappy in a sweater, or even its colors. I think it's the horizontal stripes. We ladies know that if you have a few extra pounds, you NEVER EVER want to wear horizontal! I think Lucy would prefer a royal blue solid-color sweater which would go well for her coloring. LOL.
And it IS getting cold! I hate getting in the car and waiting for it to warm up. Scooter loves it--its the time of year he loves to stay outside on patrol. So, does anyone like winter? I like a little snow for beauty and it's nice to feed the birds. No mowing, no bugs. Everything has its pros and cons, right?
