Redneck snow dog by Skeeter
Being the 4th child born, I had to adorn my body with hand me downs at times. I think all children of the 60’s probably had to wear hand-me-downs at some point. But this one takes the cake! Our family pet Molly (Welsh Terrier) was also in the mix, she was one of us kids right? This was the first house dog we ever had and she taught us that dogs were family members.
I can remember life without such stores as Petsmart, Petco, etc. I can remember going to the pet food isle in a grocery store and finding nothing more then pet food and Milk-bones dog treats and maybe a ball! Wow, folks we have come a long way since those days. Now stores are filled with everything one needs to convince an animal they are human!
In this picture of Molly, you will see her wearing one of my hand-me-down tee shirts and a red scarf I put around her neck to keep the snow off her whiskers. (Dragon, forgive me, I was a mere child then) Does she look like a little Redneck dog or what? In the years to follow, my mom found her a nice red sweater to wear in the winter months. I think that was the beginning of Great Pet things to come. Or Horrible Pet things to come as Dragon might say…
Okay B, where is that picture of Lucy wearing her new Birthday sweater?
