It started innocently enough nine years ago. Someone gave me a cute little holiday hat or frock for my mini dachshund. As payback for all the years of kiddie holiday photo cards from friends, I decided to dress Phoebe and turn it into a card.
The wiener dog was humiliated by the costume and plainly displayed her displeasure in the photo. I promised her I’d never do it again. But then came the silly Halloween costume. Followed by yet another Christmas-y costume. And then another promise.
Every year I try to stop creating the ridiculous photos, but then a well-meaning friend sends another costume. This afternoon, we had our photo shoot wearing the latest holiday outfit gift. I can’t decide which pose to use. Care to share your input?
