Playing dress up
I’ve been looking for clothes for the last two year (not for me but for my little girl). Her name is Roxie. She is four and a half. She has short light brown hair, stands at about three feet tall, and weighs approximately 50 pounds. She is spoiled silly.
Now when I was in Ghiardelli Square, San Francisco I saw some adorable outfits but they were jut too small. Then when I was by the International Market in Waikiki, I saw some cute tropical wear. I figured the apparel would just be too hard to get on her so I decided to look back here. That way I could return it if she gave me any problems.
Now I am not like my children who let their kids decide what they will wear and what they won’t. I rule not Roxie. Joke! She is extremely strong and quick. She fights anyone touching her paws. Her floppy ears and wiggly bobbed tail are always going. You should have guessed by now that she is a dog.
Roxie barks whenever she thinks she hears something. Some watchdog she would be. If anyone gives her a dirty look, she runs to hide behind me. Still she loves to use those paws to play. Somehow she thinks she is the boss and tries to corner the cats. That is about when one of them swat her and she whines. She gets no sympathy from me though. After all she is the one who started it.
My pet is better dressed than some women I know. Her wardrobe includes a yellow nautical hooded anorak jacket, a brown and tan marbled zipped hoodie vest, a knit brown tweed zip-up, a black coat with a faux leather belt and collar, a collared brown cable knit button down sweater, a silky red quilted coat with a black faux fur collar and black cotton lining, and a soft sleeveless red sweater with a bow on the back–all from the Dickens Closet Collection.
Roxie is ready for any weather. . Normally large size pet clothes (much like large size women’s plus ones) are hard to find and rarely go on sale. I put it down to supply and demand. Each normally carries a #12.99 to $29.99 price tag; yet all six purchases were bought in PETCO with my customer bonus card at the unbelievably low price of 3 for $9.99
PETCO is a great pet supermarket, supplying all needs–veterinary, food, grooming, and on and on–for just about any kind of pet. And best of all its workers are thoughtful and helpful. I can’t say that about a lot of places.
Here are some pictures of my pet boxer modeling.
There is only one problem with dressing Roxie. She likes to take the clothes off. She can use those paws better than most humans use their hands. Hmm…. Maybe some burlesque house will hire her.
