I like putting silly hats on my dog and funny clothes , but I don't take him out in public like that(except for halloween when I dressed him up as a dalmation). He would get too warm if I actually dressed him up like when people put tiny outfits on their purse dogs.

Putting silly clothes on your dog isn't completely useless because it introduces them to having things on their body, so when you have to put necessary things on them when they are older like backpacks, lifejackets, safety vests, cones, bandages or casts, and even muzzles, they are more accepting of it.

**** NO!!! I was in Big Lots a couple weeks ago and DD made a comment on some dog "clothes" and I said No! and a woman behind me giggled. DD made a smart comment to me and I said, "I have a German Shepherd. Not a foo foo dog" And the woman stopped away. Must be she does dress her dog.

I do. But she's an old Shih Tzu. Anything that keeps her warm is alright by me. Little foo-foo sweaters and all.

I only dress Dodger up on Halloween in his Bumble Bee costume to make him less intimidating. I have a jacket for him for the desert when it gets really cold at night. other than that no.

My daughter has a pair of reindeer antlers, devil horns and a princess crown that I like putting on Xander (poor thing with the princess crown LOL) but I would never take him out like that except on Halloween

GSD---Just the back pack when hiking and bandanna from time to time.

My great dane had a Harley leather coat but he has a different natural coat so he was always cold

I only put a coat on my mini doxie when it's really cold outside. She hates the cold. But one day Hondo was really ticked that he didn't have a coat on (kept attempting to grab her coat when I was putting it on her) so I put one of my old jackets on Hondo. He didn't seem too happy about it.

I do NOT!

Do NOT look at that puppy in my Avatar!!!

No really, I don't but my sister thought it would be cute for me to bring the puppies to the childrens' home in costume as it was a halloween party.

She suggested it at 11PM the night before.

Glad Wal-Mart is open 24 hours.

Costumes would have been too hot. I decided on infant onsies.

Cujo did not cooperate in that one, so,

Yeah, poor little browns fan dawgs.
Jenna and Babs are in the back row of the first picture. Brit (now Harley) is in the front with Cujo in the brown shirt. They were ten weeks old here.

Oh and collars and licenses were because we were traveling out of town for the party.

Odie, Joy-Joy
Bear Cub, Hepsi-Pepsi
Cujo2, Karma Chameleon
Ramona the Pest, Kojak -- who loves you baby?
Tiny Tinnie, Susie's Uzzi, Kaiah -- The Baby Monster.
