OK – after training class this morning I went to buy Lulu a new martingale because she’s grown out of the old one – and the store had the CUTEST sock monkey dog sweaters. Now I’ve been very adamant about not dressing her up in “outfits” – but of course in this crazy climate she’ll need a coat (which I already have) – but it is autumn…a sweater would be good, wouldn’t it? And if she’s going to be wearing a sweater anyway…couldn’t it have sock monkey ears??
That is just TOO cute! The store sells them all at the same price – which I’m sorry but the teenie tiny chihuahua sized one should not be the same price as the XXL great dane sized one…especially because they are hand made. The manufacturer website though has them priced according to size. It’s very cool – this company has them all handmade by the Quechua in the highlands of S. America – everything is all natural, etc. Very cool!
I think there might be a sock monkey in Lulu’s future….
We had a dinner party last night for my parent’s 46th wedding anniversary – it also coincided with my Dad’s retirement – so there was much to celebrate. I swear my Dad’s kind of like the Lulu-whisperer – she will sit in his lap calmly for hours – it’s quite amazing.
- Lulu’s first dinner party
Even though all the attention (or most anyway) should’ve been elsewhere, I’ve come to realize that no matter what I cook or who I invite, the pug princess is going to take center stage at all of our gatherings. This was her third or fourth dinner party, but her first indoors…Lulu really makes me wish we lived in a milder climate…I’m a little nervous about the imminent months of snow….unless she likes the snow?!? Here’s hoping…
I have yet to learn that whether I have one glass of wine, or eight, I still need to haul my ass out of bed REALLY early to let little miss lulu out…argh…my head…who’s for instituting nap time? Soooo sleepy!!
