  • poll: Do you dress up your pet?

    Yes, I sure do and I find it adorable

    Yes, furbaby wears certain "gear" (like boots) but not a complete outfit

    No, I've tried but without much success

    No, I think it's ridiculous to dress up a pet

    @BoxerLady:  Well…they aren’t the only animals in the house, matter of fact, we’re sporting 4 dogs and one cat at this moment.  Cairo, my greyhound is 12 years old, but he digs Wort, my Great Pyrenese is kind of tired of having this little dog in his face and avoids him and my husband’s lab is batshit crazy about him, they’re best buddies and do everything together, they kind of make a dumb looking pair since Brock weighs 125lbs and Wort has yet to crack 2 lbs, but hey, if it works for them, it works for me!

    My sister’s poor puggle has more clothes than I do.  Here’s a picture of him on NYE.  He looks like Elton John here I think!

    Here’s my parents’ Brittany, dressed up for Halloween:

    And here’s our dog, who has no interest in dressing up for anything ever!

    I bought a bride and groom costume for two of my cats to pose in for thank you pictures, and I also bought some really cheap little things… a frog costume and a bumblebee outfit. I then attempted a trial run in the bride and groom costumes.

    One of my three cats is far too feral to even try this. The other is very sweet, but obviously hated being played with in this way. I put the suit on him and he didn’t complain, but he was obviously really uncomfortable and I felt really bad for making him do it. The third one is a bit developmentally special, and couldn’t care less about being dressed up either way, but I’ve only dressed her up two or three times (I feel quite ashamed of this, actually… I know that cats are living creatures and not toys, but they just look so sweet!).

    @BoxerLady:  The 99 Pack is renouned in our circle of friends, and something Mr. 99 and I are very proud of.   We have a couple of single dog owners that bring their dogs over for some good dog conversation and canine companionship, which soothes most dogs, because working so hard to understand people is exhausting, it’s nice to get back to basics and have some fun. 

    My advice would be to know the dog you have now, is he territorial, aggressive, anxious around other dogs and how well does your household work for him?  One dog is a pet, two is a family any more than that is Wild Kingdom….be prepared for a lot of different behavior out of both dogs….who’s the alpha in your house?

    Mr. 99 rules with an iron fist and our dogs are so well adjusted because they firmly believe that he’s the one who makes the decisions and that’s that.  Regardless of the situation, all of the dogs will refer to his judgement and follow…THAT’s why our pack is so functional regardless of who comes or goes out of it, because Mr. 99 commands it….he doesn’t yell, hit or anything like that, he’s just a person who owns his space and the entire house is HIS, dogs respond to that attitude, it’s comforting for them.

    If you’ve got an Alpha relationship established and your house is a good dog place, adding a second is no problem, I prefer males simply because I find females to be more territorial and moody, but that’s my personal experience.   Dogs like routine, consistency and time with their people, the rest is squeak toys and housebreaking.

    I dress up both my critters- one for fashion, and one for utility. My boy is a maltese/pom mix, and his fur gets caked with snow if he doesn’t wear a coat. Plus, he gets cold right after I groom him, so he has a hoodie he wears in the fall/winter.
    My girl is a doxie and she’s adorable and has a few fashion items, and I’m planning on getting a custom flowergirl dress made for her (because of her body shape almost no clothes fit her!) Shes very feminine looking so it’s only appropriate for her to be the flower girl.


    I love them so much its borderline obsessive.


    Here’s the boy as a pup:


    and older, in his lobster costume for halloween

    @BoxerLady:  Well, keep at it.  Boxers are high energy and STUBBORN, but if he’s still a baby, there’s still time to get his fanny in line with the program.  Don’t give up!

    He used to wear sweaters when he was a pup, he would always shiver in winter, or when we turned the AC on. Since he’s older and alot more furry, he doesn’t need one anymore.
