Hunny in Pink

My dog, Hunny is part cocker spaniel, part golden retriever. Yes, the cutest dog ever!

With our messy yard and all the dog park trips during the week, Hunny trails in dried leaves, dirt, and whatever else can get caught in her thick fur. Cute, but not so cute!


During a little heat wave we had earlier this month, her Mauntie (PBX) decided it was time for Hunny's semi-annual buzz-cut.

I came home to a completely different dog. She's even cuter without all that straggly, long fur.


The heat wave passed and we were left with a shivering pup. Apparently, senior dogs get cold easier than when they were young spry things.

I'm typically not a fan of pet clothing. Especially designer-type of clothes. But after spending a winter at a small dog park and having met a few small dogs who consistently came with different shirts, sweaters and sweatshirts daily, I began to understand that clothing is actually useful. Not just for show.

I knew Hunny was freezing one night when I covered her in fleece and she didn't move till morning. Very unlike her to tolerate anything on top of her.

Pet store clothing offered slim pickings - too thick, too bulky, too small, too big, too expensive. I just wanted to cover her back.

No more worries.

Thanks to her Mauntie, the Goodwill store and a toddler's vest, Hunny is fully covered, warm, comfortable, and seriously cuter than ever - for a buck-fifty.

Cute! And "Maunty" learned a valuable lesson about jumping the gun on the "Spring Do" didn't she?

Glad to see Hunny is feeling "in the pink" again.
