Looking at the picture made me put a sweater on my dog. Last week I went to petsmart to try and find her a "reindeer coat", which is a little dog coat sort of resembling a onesie you'd put on a baby and includes a hood with some plushy antlers to complete the look. Unfortunately, I only found an xxs which wouldn't fit around her tummy (I probably should cut her off from meatloaf and original baked lays) and a large, which would make her resemble an ottoman with handles. I guess it's better than buying everyone in the family an anteater/aardvark/armadillo coat like they had John Cusack's "better off dead" film-mother buying. Her husband and the neighbor dad exchanged "for the love of god, please meet me out in the alley with some lighter fluid and I'll bring the matches so we can burn these things!" looks. But back to my dog...oh yeah, why I wanted to dress her like a reindeer....well, it's better than buying used breast implants for putting in her christmas stocking, and I have yet to receive a jackalope from someone for Christmas, so until I do I'll be looking for ways to console myself. Someday I'll get a jackalope, hopefully before the dog goes postal and takes me and the cat out with her UFC moves she practices when I'm not home.
