Good D.O.G.



It was a beautiful weekend here, and Brutus & I had lots to do.  In addition to watching fireworks and going to an agility trial (action photos coming soon, I promise!!), we did a little shopping for Brutus' birthday next week.  One of our stops was a a fun little boutique just a few minutes from our house, the D.O.G. store.  All the girls that work there know Brutus & always love to have him visit.  They cater to small dogs, so everything is scaled down in size - Brutus is an XL client to them.  Brutus' favorite part about the store is getting check out all the stuffies, conveniently located in baskets on the floor so he can pick one out all by himself.  I usually torture him a little by trying on some clothes (to my husband's chagrin), but nothing really ever fits his bowling-ball physique.  Here are a few pictures from the outing (sorry, iphone photos again...).  For anyone with pint-sized pups, check out the online version of the store at the D.O.G. website.  


So many fun things to check out...

Can you see that giant donut up there behind me?  Mmmmmm.....
Oh, it's a bed - never mind.

Oh, boy - stuffies!!  Decisions, decisions....

Whatever you do, mom - do NOT get me this raincoat for my birthday!!  UGH!

Poor Brutie! You look miserable in that raincoat! But what a patient boy to let your human put it on you :-)
Luckily, I'm too big to fit into the majority of the doggie clothes out there (whew!).
Looking forward to seeing your agility pics!
Your pal,
Sedona

Hi Brutus,

You look absolutely horrified to be wearing that raincoat! BOL We think you would look adorable wearing one of those Harley Davidson biker caps though.

Wags & wiggles,

HOW fun... except the outfit part! I had to wear a sweater once... it was a little bit too small... a hand me down from my moms ould doggie. GOOD thing it was too little or I might be stuck wearing that junk all the time!
