I've never been one of those people who dresses up his dog. For starters, I'm very leery of the whole pet-as-baby thing, afraid that I could become someone who's more comfortable with animals than people, like Prince Philip. What's more, I kind of feel sorry for the pets, who didn't ask to look ridiculous.
But this is a Year of New Things and who am I to judge that which I haven't tried? So, in honor of yesterday's visit to the cross-dressing mayor of Silverton, Oregon, I bought Sherman the Wonder Dog his first skirt.
Yeah, it didn't really fit, so I turned it into a cape instead.
I've gotta admit, it didn't change my opinion of dressing up animals like people. In fact, I still much prefer that people get naked like animals.
