shameless k-9 spoilage

So Brian and I seem to have fallen into a stereotype very typical of gasp "folks with no kids"...

We have definitively crossed the line of enjoying our dog as a pet to completely and shamelessly spoiling her as one might with a child

We lavish her with attention take her, EVERYWHERE, and she whines to get pretty much anything we could have possibly "forgotten" to give her. We make excuses like we don't have a fence for not leaving her behind and allowing her to actually be "independent" from us. We also let her run pretty much anywhere she wants on our 70 acres and then more around our canyon if she choses... so we pretty much felt we had hit the spoiling pinnacle. But there was one last bastion of spoiling and I will implicate Porter here as she participated in this.

Due to the cold climate and a house that ranges from 43 and 55 degrees and a dog with very short hair we have now "acquired" not one, not two but three doggie jackets.


The first one is a fleece made in Oregon just for our "principessa" ...


The second acquisition is a waterproof "outdoor" jacket with reflective strips the works...


And the third is a fabulous gift from miss Porter that is ..get this embroidered with her name...
Clementine

and then there is her "other" name which is rightly principessa...
