I have never done this to my dog before. I always thought it was stupid and silly. But then I saw a flyer for a pet parade in our neighborhood and thought it might be fun to participate, and costumes were required. So I shopped for one online and today we went over to the parade. I now see why people do this. The moment I had Joe dressed up as a cowboy I was laughing my ass off. It’s nothing but hilarity. It’s so freaking funny when it’s your own dog looking like a goof ball. If you have a pet, I highly recommend you try this at least once. And the parade was a blast too, seeing all the dogs, and a hamster and a lizard, all dressed up. What a riot. Tons of fun.
