Riley is very cooperative when getting dressed. He will stand very still with his ears pinned back. I guess that means he is not sure what is going on, and he hopes it will go away soon. Katherine and I think he looks adorable. Don just rolls his eyes.
An article in the "Ask Dog Lady" column of the Plain Dealer on Thursday made me feel a little guilty. It was titled, "Halloween costumes are torture for dogs."
This expert, Monica Collins, says she's been around dogs long enough to sense that they're miserable in clothes. She says, "Woofers of all sizes are nudists by nature and want to wear their birthday suits on Halloween."
She might have a point. But look how cute he is in his "Bad Dog" costume! It's worth a few minutes of torture. Sorry, Riley.
