I bought Rory a new down coat yesterday at the dog store.
I have no problem putting a sweater, raincoat or jacket on my dog to keep him warm and dry during bad weather.
But a doggie Halloween costume?
I have a really hard time doing that to him.
Sure, he will look cute in it, but it serves no useful purpose. He doesn’t need it for warmth or protection. And I feel like dressing him up like a vampire or dinosaur or Book of Mormon character strips away a layer of his dignity — violates the trust that he has put in me to protect him in every circumstance and against any foe.
Plus, he already gets all the treats he wants everyday without having to put on the tart.
