This is just so, so wrong

If you've been around for a while, you know how much I enjoy making fun of my mom, but sometimes I wonder if this is really fair. I mean, she really is a good person. Honestly. She's friendly and talkative (even to surly taxi drivers with limited English--no matter! just keep on chatting!) She's kind and loving. She'll do just about anything for you.


She's one of Those People.

You know the ones.

The ones who commit such crimes as BUYING SUNGLASSES FOR DOGS.

Does this dog look happy to you?

And that's not all. Oh no. Not even close. This tiny armoire is BRIMMING with DOG CLOTHES.
See that little flapper get-up in front? That's her dog's EASTER DRESS. Yes. Have I even thought of what my own human children will be wearing for Easter Sunday yet? No, I have not. What's more, this dog has her own LUGGAGE. I suppose it's for when she jets off to the French Riviera.

This all reminds me of something...hmm, what was it? Oh yes, Pets Who Want to Kill Themselves.

I can see why.

Do you know anyone like this? For the dogs' sake, I hope not. Think of the animals, people.

Lol! Poor pup. But at least your mom's having fun. I'm a little full to the back teeth of grumps.

Aww, whyfore are you grumpy, Jamie?

An ex-boyfriend of mine had a mother that was not quite that bad, but she was getting there. On the plus side, if your mom doesn't already have it you can buy her BEVERLY HILLS CHIHUAHUA. She'll love it and totally relate!

Robin, I was going to say the same thing! Adorable puppy, though. Maltese? Or the other breed I always get confused with the Maltese....either way, that's one cute unhappy dog!

LOL! Very cute post.

This is so right!! Look at all the writing potential! Perhaps even a childrens' book written from the dog's perspective. :D

I was just thinking today that I will do my very best not to become one of those people. The blog is a completely separate issue.

Hilarious post!

Did your mother also do this to you when you were a kid?

How do you feel about the dog? Do I sense a hint of "sibling rivalry"? (joking)

Take care.

Robin--I'll ask her if she saw it. Cute movie.

Christa--Yep, Maltese. There are a bunch of similar small white fluffy breeds and I get all of them confused, too.


JLC--I am, perhaps, just the wrong person to write that. Feel free to borrow.

Melanie--I don't know, you are treading awfully close given your dog's blog!

Purple Cow--No, we always had big dogs. I did, however, have a cat when I was about 8 that I used to dress up in baby dresses and booties. Poor thing. And he never once scratched me.

Wow. We've had to put Argo in a shirt a few times to keep him from chewing on stitches. Even though there was a reason for it, I still felt kind of bad for doing it.
