Dressing Up the Dogs in Star Wars Costumes

So my roommate, Harley, and I are massive nerds and when we saw at PetSmart that there were Star Wars costumes, we couldn’t help ourselves and got six of them for our two dogs: Kiki and Pixie. Now Kiki is totally used to wearing outfits while Pixie will occasionally wear them depending on how they are cut and fitted. As some are tighter in some spots than others. Her favorite thing to wear are bandanas, but even then some days she does not want to wear anything but her collar. What I’m trying to say in a very roundabout way, I wouldn’t do anything to my dog that she isn’t comfortable with. She makes the best facial expressions and I know how to read them all, including her sassy “I am not doing that” face. And luckily on the day we put these all on for the photoshoot, Pixie was totally fine with us putting them on. Though a few she did not like after a few minutes as they were just too much and they were promptly removed.

This month has had several key items but nowhere as many as February. Just as I did for the month of February I will break everything into area of my life though they are all really combined. But I think it makes more organizational sense this way.

And we’re not really sure where it stems…
