I have to take a moment and step back from my posts about my visit home to post this. Thanksgiving Weekend has been quite chilly for us, and this morning I decided that I would risk the broken bones and eaten faces and put Judy and Cueball’s hoodies on Flossie and Skeeter. After a struggle Flossie let me put her hoodie on and then decided (in her own mind of course) that she had put on her coat and therefore SHE WAS GOING SOMEWHERE, at which point she sat in front of the door because she had put on her coat and therefore SHE WAS GOING SOMEWHERE. After a while she realized the coat was for her warmth and not for a trip and decided to go with it. Skeeter was more of an issue, the hoodie had been bought for Cueball when he was just a pup, and obviously was not going to fit Skeeter. A quick snip of the scissors and hey presto, it fit.
After this picture was taken they then went down into the swampy area of the yard and rolled around in the mud until the hoodies were black. I cannot believe I am now going to have to do my dogs’ laundry.
