I just got my new DrsFoster&Smith catalog and normally I'm not one for dressing up my dogs, however I did think some of the doggie halloweeen costumes are pretty funny - I especially liked the little white dog being eaten by the dinosaur (http://www.drsfostersmith.com/product/prod_display.cfm?pcatid=17978&prodid=35393&catid=45)
Lexi LOVES to be dressed up. She'll even hold her paw up to put it in the sleeves for you. She's very good. I think she just likes the attention. She doesn't like things on her head, but she'll do just about anything if I ask her. She's just really good like that. Miles.. well, he'll tolerate a few things. I ought to find that lion costume I bought him last year for Halloween. His ears stick thru the top and he's got a furry mane… but he's too fat to velcro is shut, so he can't wear it this year. ha! He's gotta go on a diet. Ok, ok... and I need to exercise more!
Thank you for the wonderful pictures. I wish my B's tolerated costumes. The closest time I came to actually dressing up one of our dogs was with a Batman costume. The mask was a no go, but when the B 500 started with the intent to try and dislodge the body of the costume, that cape flying in the wind was as impressive as all the special effects in any Hollywood movie!!
I've had Lexi since she was a puppy. Most of the pics are of her. She lets me do whatever. I raised her to allow me to touch her feet and to be tolerant of being handled. And she really just likes the attention. Putting little outfits on demands that you get on the floor with her and talk to her and stuff. She just really likes it. And she loves taking pictures. You turn on your camera and she comes running!! You can pose her and ask her to "stay" and she'll hold the pose. And then of course you just point in the air where you want her to look and she'll hold the pose AND put her head in the right place. LOL… She is special.
We don't have the running shoes any more... mainly because we didn't NEED them. She hates the snow and it doesn't get THAT hot here. I just thought they were cute and matched her running harness. ha!
As for the Christmas picture- it was caught mid-yawn. I got lucky! ha
