A new development in the world of Spencer

I am anti-dog clothing.

My sister and mother knew this, and still decided to give Spencer clothes for Christmas.  (A puffy vest and an argyle sweater, respectively.)

Strangely enough, Spence seems to be surprisingly into wearing clothes.

Even weirder? They calm him down, much like Charlie and his Thunder Shirt.  Spence took four naps yesterday.

I don't know how to resolve this dilemma.

Calm, happy Spence ... versus being that girl who dresses her dog.

It's a toughie for sure.

You wish you looked this good in argyle.


  1. He's sooo cute! My sister dresses her dogs, too. Only, one of them doesn't like it and always manages to fall out of them. :) It leaves the other one looking like the favorite.

    It was so great to meet you Friday!

    ... I tried to publish and was told that my account doesn't have access to comment on this page. Which made me question for a minute if you were as thrilled to meet me! I logged back in on the same account and all was well, so I'm going to go on assuming you liked meeting me, too. :D

  2. We don't do clothes for our dogs either, but poor Boston had to wear a Cozy Cone all during Christmas due to a hotspot she won't stop licking on her foot. If our dogs were smaller though, I might be tempted, Spence looks so cute!

  3. I'm not usually a fan of clothes on animals, but maybe he's really modest.

  4. Oh Spence is a cutie. Very chic if you ask me!

  5. Spencer looks ready to take on the world with a calm and preppy handsomeness.

    Perhaps one or two things won't hurt. But if Spence ends up needing his own closet rack...well, then an intervention may be needed.

  6. Wow. That sucks. I'm very judgmental of people who dress their dogs, mostly because if those people treated their children like how they treat their dogs, everyone would call their kids spoiled.

  7. I just went through this with Sparky. He now wears a coat when we go on walks and loves, but I am pretty sure I have lost standing as man by letting my dog wear a hunter-green sporting jacket when we go to the park.

  8. He's so cute. I've never put clothes on my pets, so I don't know what it's about. It does seem unnatural, but I don't think it'll hurt as long as it's not daily.
