Never Say Never

Once upon a time, I thought that people who dressed up their dogs and cats for holidays were right up there with people who stuck plastic pink flamingos on their front lawns. 

Meet Bella.

She's my sister Mary's dog and she's a little cutie pie.  Yesterday, Mary and I bought Bella a pink chiffon skirt and glittery tiara for Halloween. 

Clearly pink flamingos are in my future.

This is actually a very good point--and a hilarious one! Bella is certainly living up to her name. Was she pleased with her outfit?

Sarah, she didn't mind the skirt but wasn't too pleased about the tiara--until we offered her a little doggie treat. :)

Ahhh, so cute!
Try dressing a pink flamingo next time. Kill two birds...

A whole latte fun going on over here today :)

I hope you'll post a photo of that pink flamingo, when it makes its way to your lawn ...

What a cutie! I don't know that I would dress up a dog yet (not quite to that point) but that's a dog that can pull it off!

Oh Bella. I'm sorry. (Even if you are adorable in pink.)

I've never had a dog, and must admit I don't miss it. Kids never asked for any kind of pet >:)

Heck, I once knit a Christmas collar for my cat... He wore it long enough for me to take a photo and that was the end of that :-)

LOL, my sister used to do that to our Poodle when we were growing up. Poor dog. I'm with you on the pink flamingos!

We have a sweater for Roxy since her hair is so short but it hasn't been cool enough for her to need it :)

You'll have to take a photo of the flamingoes. :)

Janet Johnson said...

Too cute! And good point about saying never. ;)

Poor little pooch. Can't say that we've ever had the urge to put any of our pets into costumes, but I did let the groomer give one of our poor old dogs a lion cut one time. That was bad enough. (And shame on us; when we went to pick him up, we didn't even have the common decency to hide our laughter.)

Bella is soooo cute!

I wanted to dress up my dog last year but the store only had two outfits in his size: a santa suit and a pink tutu. As much as he sniffed around the pink tutu, I think the pink skirt would have made it hard for him to do his man things.

The pink flamingo fairy is going to attack your lawn now!

LynNerd said...

What a fun post! I got Halloween costumes for my dogs this year, too, and it's a running joke between my hubby and me about putting pink flamingos in our front flower beds! Haha!

Tracy Jo said...

Lol! I love it. Hey, life is short...might as well fly your pink flamingo flag. :-)
