what's up with this phenomenon? is it just because i live in a lovely, although materialistic, somewhat snooty, somewhat "keeping up with the Jones" town? (omg i hope the Mayor of Boca's wife isnt a member of tPF) lol everywhere you go here i guess since about a year ago, dogs have outfits on. Also they are in dog carriages, peeking out and surveying the world. In the mall you collide with the dog buggies, and alot of the time, the dog's outfit is cuter than anything i had as a little girl. Today i saw a 3 lb. chihuahua with a tiny pink and silver dress on. There is a doggie clothing/accessory kiosk in the middle of our main mall, selling designer purses for dogs (PAWDRA instead of Prada; DOGIOR instead of Dior, etc.,) The outfits are little T-shirts with sayings like "I make yellow snow", "What happens in the park stays in the park, "Americanine Idol", and for a female dog with a male human daddy, a little shirt that says "At least one of us has b_ _ _ s" also party dresses, Madonna-like outfits, biker clothes, clothes representing professions (doctor), tuxedos... The other day I saw a dog with little slippers on................... I did send my friend Penny a stuffed toy for her Roxy, shaped like a Chanel perfume bottle saying "Chewnel No. 5)..... and this weekend in Palm Beach, there is a contest for dogs "America's Top Model Dog" does anyone else have this doggie thing in their city!?
