Cute…or Crazy?

I have been studying Craigslist pet section searching for a new playmate for Mickey. He really misses Maggie. They used to wrestle together, run together, cause trouble together. Monty will tussle a little with Mick, but Monty is really a gentle soul, not a rough and tumble type like Mickey.

As I was perusing the pets section the other night I ran across this posting. DELIGHTFUL DOGGIE DRESSES. I couldn’t believe my eyes. Were they serious? Do people really dress their dogs in dresses? I must be out of the loop again. So of course I clicked on the posting and this is what I found:

I make dog dresses and would like to sell the following for $35 each. (size sm) Can custom fit any size dog. Wholesale pricing is available.
Email me if interested: 


Are you still laughing? Or are you emailing to order a couple? I went back to find that ad again and it was gone! I would chalk it up to my hallucinations, you know, the kinds your mother warned you about when you got the drug talk. But I have the pictures and I don’t know any chihuahuas. And no I didn’t have too much to drink and then messed around in Photoshop. I swear these were on Craigslist. Really.

    Yes, I have seen dresses for Chihuahuas. I have three chihuahuas. One is too fat to wear a dress, the other one is a male and my baby, Tinky would probably try to take the darn thing off. Those are cute though.

    I’d love to see your Chihuahuas. Let me know if you have pics posted anywhere.
