YES I dress up my dog. Probably my #1 Pet Peeve about judgmental dog owners is criticizing clothing on animals. "Poor dogs" or "How cruel, dog's weren't meant to wear clothing, you are making them miserable." Says who... you?
I don't know about you but my Pomeranian LOVES her clothes! Loves them! She gets so excited and happy when I say "Do you want your jacket? Do you want your sweater? Want to wear your shirt?" And the second I hold up the clothes she's hopping around or sitting and wagging her tail so fast her butts moving! Once I put on the clothes she'll walk around like she's on the runway with this big puppy panting smiling.
Clothing for her = positive attention or = going outside. Yes I know she's got a fur coat but Kayla HATES the snow... I mean absolutely hates it. Buying booties and a jacket was the best thing I ever did. Once I put her booties on and jacket on she's like YES! LETS GO IM READY! :o)
So to everyone who judges clothing; think again. Not all breeds are farm/working/earthy-crunchy dogs. Yes I don't think I'd put a jacket on a German Shepard either but why not on an Italian Greyhound? Chihuahua? Pomeranian? Yorkie? These dogs were bred down to size to become small domestic "toy" dogs. If you don't like it, then ignore the thread.
Also, cute pictures everyone! I love the accessories! :o) Keep up the good fashion!
