Sad Realization...

Sahara's 1st birthday will come around on September 27th, and I was wondering how I could celebrate this, without being too much of an insane, molly-coddling pet mother.
I had a little looky at one of my favourite pet apparel websites, PetEdge, and found the costume section...

I am speechless.

I don't know whether to laugh, or cry. Take a look...

So, obviously, I got carried away. I looked at safety reflective vests, so she can go to work with Daddy, and not get squashed by trucks. I looked at life preservers, for our trips to the beach. I even looked at 'East Side Collection Luxury Faux Fur Satin Robes', for when she comes home from the groomer.

And I wonder, even though I think these are slightly disturbing, and a dog should be able to go swimming unaided, or get washed down with a hose in the back yard instead of at a doggy day spa... am I not already half way there?

Recent photographic evidence would suggest I am, in fact, one of those doggy parents.

Hi, Katie, Just wanted to thank you for reading my blog. I really appreciate that & your comments. I have to tell you that in April I had a birthday party for my dog at his doggie daycare center and he wore a party hat and they had a cake & presents, etc. As far as costumes go...well, I am guilty of buying my dog a Halloween costume!

If you buy your pups some doggie goggles, I'll have to get child protective services involved.
