My attempt to move from Southern California and create a happy and sustainable urban homestead in North Dakota, with some musings on life with deaf dogs, a gluten free spouse, and the occasional mischievous garden gnome. Thank you for visiting and I hope you enjoy.

Scandalous Sweater Pictures

Our mischievous little puppy Shadowfax has grown quite a bit in the past year.  How do I know?  The awesome lime green sweater she wore most of last winter (see New Green Sweater) is now quite snug on her.  What used to reach all the way to her furry doggy bottom now barely covers most of her back.
This is the sweater last winter, when Shadowfax was still a puppy.  It was a very conservative garment, reaching all the way to the base of her tail.  As an overprotective father, I approved of her wearing an outfit like this out of the house.
That sweater used to cover up everything.  A lot has happened since then, mostly our little puppy grew up and filled out.  Now?
As you can see it's pretty scandalous - it's like a tight tube top with exposed midriff and doggy decolletage, not what my little girl should be wearing. 
 
I think even the puppy herself realizes the scandalous nature of her outfit.  Alycia might let her go to school or doggy camp dressed like this, but I certainly don't approve.  I think it's time for a new (and larger) sweater.

Oh my, John... now you are just going to have to step in and let her know she has to show less skin. As a parent of used-to-be teenagers, I know all too well what their arguments can be like. You must remain firm.

I know, I know, 'All her friends are dressing like this' but if her friends jumped off a cliff, would she jump too? (On second thought, don't ask that one, as I recall one of my petulant sock puppets told me it depended on high the cliff was, and what the terrain at the bottom was like, i.e. water, rocks, soft dirt, forested land, etc.)

My dear fellow, you and Alycia have just entered into the tween years. Trust me, they have an answer for everything.

I know that we're in for a pretty rough ride for a few years, but we'll hope for the best and stick to our guns. After all, we have a reputation in the community and can't have a scandalous young lady running around all winter. Family discussions on this topic will certainly continue in the future.
