Dogs Wearing Hats

Whoo hoo, I’ve now finished my first round of the writers' campaign blog trail - I’ve visited/commented/followed/friended/circled/linked everyone in my horror, suspense/thriller, and YA groups.  I’ve seen so many funny/insightful/informative/enjoyable blogs the last few days and met some really great people.  It’s been fun, but it has turned my brain into a whirling, seething mass of goo.  And now I really need to post something new to entertain my new visitors, but of course I’m drawing a blank.  It’s probably stage fright knowing all these new friends are watching.

While reading though all the lovely comments, I saw several people were supportive of my weakness for putting party hats on dogs.  Either that or they were just being kind to avoid chasing the weird girl back into her corner.  So I decided to do what any proud parent does when someone shows the slightest interest in their ‘children’… pull out pictures!

For the record, all five of these dogs are not mine.  Freya is my girl, Lily and Chloe belong to my parents, Bailey is my brother’s handful, and Molly owns my sister.  So the hat obsession is not a Jocelyn thing, but a Rish thing.  Enjoy!

Lily looks so sweet in her party hat that Freya and Chloe are giving her kisses.  It has nothing at all to do with the fact that Lily is a messy eater and the other two are keeping her clean.

Bailey does not like to share.

Step away from the birthday cake and no one gets hurt!

 

Chloe has always been a rebel, so she wears her hat with style.

Chloe always does her own thing

 

I can read doggie minds.  Molly is clearly thinking about how much fun she’s having.  The phrase “I keel you!” never once passed through her brain.

I keel you!

 

The reward for all this adorable humiliation?  Delicious cakes made from canned dog food and doggie treats.

See what we'll put up with for some extra delicious food

 

And it’s not just birthdays….

But I promise, putting hats on the dogs is as far as we go . . . or is it?!?

Do you dress up your pets in any way?  Do they like it or do they give you sad face?  Or did you quit reading halfway through to run find the number of the Humane Society to report the crazy hat lady?
