My After Thanksgiving Shoppin'

Crazy M had a good bit of visitors for the holiday. My parents, niece, father-in-law and nephew came for the long weekend. Lots of eating, fishin', laughin' and shoppin' was done.

Saturday, we headed to town to find some goodies. The husband had given me money for my birthday (the true explanation behind the term Black Friday!) and it was burning a hole in my pocket. I was given explicit directions to spend it on me. And for the most part I did.

BUT I went into one store and came out with only dog stuff. Imagine that! Not even a pet store, Old Navy!! They had their pet stuff on sale for half price. I couldn't resist.

Lucky Dog got a plaid jacket/blanket. He is so skinny when he gets cold, his teeth chatter. Have you ever heard a dog's teeth chatter? I hadn't. The family made fun of me cause they said Diesel would tear it off Lucky. But he didn't. Lucky wears it every night to stay warm. I think he likes it. Looks a little small but that was the biggest size they had.

Then I got Diesel this shirt. Again the family laughed at me. They didn't think there was any way I was gonna get that shirt on Diesel. I showed them! Believe me, it was a workout, but I got it done!

This is what it says...

I don't think Diesel is a t-shirt wearing dog. But it kept him entertained for a good while.

He's still as goofy as ever.

I'm thinking he's a naughty boy and likes it;) The teeth, the eyes and well let's just say he's NOT camera shy;)

It was a good shopping trip for you - lucky dogs! That Diesel sure is entertaining and he is such a "HAM".

I got dog stuff at Old Navy too!! I got toys though, no clothes (this time). One of my friends said that the toys really hold up well. So I got a couple squeaky ones for the inside dogs and a rubber ball with a rope attached for the outside dog. He loves that thing!

I was surprised that Old Navy had such a great deal on dog toys!!

Diesel is so photogenic! Lucky dog is really cute in his coat. How is the battle going with Foxy's owners?

With 6 greyhounds, I have heard teeth chatter. We have a large variety of fleeces and winter coats to outfit everyone when we need to.

Hilarious!

There can't be much shirt left - bet Diesel has ripped most of it!

Maery Rose said...

Thanks for the laugh! I think Old Navy should user your photos of Diesel in their advertising. Something about how tough their dog attire is.

I would keep Lucky Dog's bed in a draft free area if possible or away from overhead ceiling fans. You could also put a nice warm blanket down on top of the bed. Our rottie, Handsome, likes to bury his nose and feet into it when he sleeps. Dogs are so funny. The plaid coat should help also. Poor baby.

Tatersmama said...

Awww... how sweet they are! And fancy you spending 'your' money on clothes for the kids. It's what I would have done too! Which is why I constantly asked for 'stuff' instead of money. I never got the benefit, otherwise! lol!
