    Hey, it was raining today. While I admit that Cookie (aka "The Cook") is spoiled ... normally I don't dress her up. She's a Wheaten Terrier and her fur is more like human hair than dog fur. As such, she soaks up water like a sponge. So the boots and sweater is an attempt at keeping her reasonably ... somewhat dry. Fortunately, none of her friends saw her (she isn't too happy about me taking the pix ... if she sees it on the internet ... she' kill me).

    I was thinking the same thing.

    That's not rain on her face -- it's tears...

    Hopefully mine won't see this one from a few Halloweens ago. The one on the left is a squirrel (the irony is probably lost on him....when he sees a real one, he goes completely insane) and my fave bit is that he's "holding" a nut in front of himself.

    She is a great little girl. She knows that on rainy days, galoshes = walk. So she accommodates. She is without question the best dog/friend in the world and the smartest dog I've ever known.

    My dog is too smart to let us dress her up like that! This isn't embarrassing at all, but I felt I should put a normal dog shot in here because, 1) to stand up for all dogs everywhere against this horrid abuse, and B) this is the only dog thread going at the moment. This is my pooch a little while ago where she hangs out a lot, under my desk. Took a snap to test out the new Apple RAW support of the GH2 and all is good in the world. She's a happy dog in her natural state!

    This is from a dog show I attended last year. I had never been to one of these before and I must admit that I had a blast.
