not sure if this post should go under
“Dear Abby” or “Letter to the Editor”
but after being out with mass crowds this weekend
in two separate locations
on two separate days
I feel it is my civic duty to report
and possibly bring in to question
a couple of things
accessorizing “Man’s Best Friend”
Now y’all know I love animals
We live on a farm and have LOTS of critters
great and small
and I love them all. Really.
and I LOVE people
and I don’t want to offend my loyal readers
with this question
but if I may…
“At what point in life did you decide….’Well…today’s the day..I better get going .. I’ve got to go get Fido a visor… and while I’m at it I might as well get him a vest or a sweater to match? and gosh I guess I might as well pick up a stroller to stroll him in or a backpack for him to ride in ..no need in making two trips when I can get
ALL of my
DOG ACCESSORIES in one trip??????????!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!”
let me reiterate
I LOVE ANIMALS
IF it is absolutely necessary that you to take your dog(S) with you to the craft fair
because you just can’t stand the thought of leaving Fido at home
and you INSIST on leashing him
and bringing him with you to the craft fair
but do him a favor
DON’T DRESS him
he’s a dog.
want to wear clothes
or ride in a backpack
or stroll in a stroller
he’s a dog.
dogs like to run
and roll in the grass and dirt
and be free to roam at HOME
HE’S A DOG.
next case and point.
I am not the fashion police
(although I WOULD LOVE to play one on TV)
but I feel that it is
to share a bit of fashion advice with women particularly
(oh….and the man working the pottery booth)
#2 When wearing Lycra tights or spandex leggings
do us ALL a FAVOR
check and double check
the length of your top.
**If your top is not AT LEAST mid thigh
more preferably just above the knee
WEAR JEANS INSTEAD.
a good general “rule of thumb”
my Precious mother shared with me
many moons ago
that has helped
when trying to decide if an outfit
or action was appropriate..
“IF IN DOUBT…DON’T“
PS..Please send all unkind comments and/or responses to the woman wearing the pink hat that matched her dog’s visor.
Well…you know how much I love my dog Karmen! He gives me my “baby fix”! We have dressed him on Halloween because it’s just cute and the kids had fun with it! ok…i did too! once he was a “bumble bee” and then he had an Auburn coat!
