    Yes, my Ilsa is a fashion plate. She has sweaters, coats - including one fake fur with a lovely sequins trim. She also has two formal gowns, in my avatar you can see a bit of one of them, it's black velvet and gold. She gets quite cold in the winter and shivers a bit so I do think it's worth it. I've tried booties for the snow, ice and salt but she hated them and pulled them off her paws. Oh well.

    I have never put any clothing on any of my dogs. There is something attractive though about some type of winter jacket if it would keep the snowballs off their fur. I couldn't ever imagine putting booties on them - imagine putting 16 booties (4 dogs) on every time they wanted to go out!!

    I think my family would disown me if I tried to dress up the dogs.
    They each have a coat for winter when it gets below 0 here though. That's as far as I'm allowed to go with clothing.

    I'm with you MoJ, my family would crucify me if I went out and bought loads of lovely things for my precious Anna. She does have a life jacket and 2 sweaters, one heavy and one light. That is about it, and I HAD to justify those to the fam. Maybe someday I'll get some more, just I also don't like all those frilly clothes. If it isn't usable or needed I don't really want it. Anna is aready beautiful enough, the only reason we put her in those is so that she can be warm and make the other dogs not feel so bad about themselves.

    We have a little rain jacket for rainy days, and they each have a fleece shirt for when we visit home in the snow. Other than that we don't put them in clothes.

    Awww, Stacy those dresses are cute!!!

    I admit I do dress Alice up on occasion. We got her really young at 6 weeks just b4 Christmas. It was cold + she was shivering = we got her a little sweater. ($7 at Walmart)
    Then she hated the rain + hated getting wet = we got her a rain coat at Old Navy. (She hates it though = waste of $15 - I think they have them on clearance now a lot cheaper... of course! )
    Then we found this really cute dress on clearance at Walmart, only $5, it was pink with 3 layers, she wore it everywhere while it fit her and got lots of compliments....

    We also hit the post Christmas jackpot at Walmart - Got Alice a Christmas sweater, fancy holiday dress and t-shirt - all for about $1.50 a piece, they were 75% off... (Can't wait for Christmas!)
    Then we got her a pink dress with little brown hearts and a brown ribbon bow post Valentines day at Petsmart for $3. The dress is still a bit big, I may just alter it a little, it drags on the ground a little...

    Notice how I justify buying clothes for Alice by bragging about how little I paid for them??? I'm sure my family thinks I am crazy but Alice is my first little female dog and I am enjoying the cute little dresses!!! My Irish Setter has a pirate costume for Halloween & our local Pirate Festival, she also has a Fairy Princess costume, I actually bought that for my Goldendoodle, but she had a weird hot spot/foot infection at Halloween and couldn't go anywhere... You can see our family pics if you want at the website below, there are some pics of Alice and the reast of our herd, including some good ones of the Irish Setter, Ruby, in her Halloween duds...
