Winter solstice: survived thanks to a $7 designer coat.

I'm so sorry I've been a very bad doog pal of late. Can you all forgive me? (well, my slack ma, actually). I'm looking forward to sniffing around your smelly blogplaces real soon.

Now, on to the news.

It's been really cold here in Adelaide these last few weeks, almost as cold as we experienced when we lived in Canberra.

The ma was feeling rather sorry for me sleeping outside at night. I shivered and shook (at appropriate moments. I was actually rather comfy. But you doogs understand it's important to milk the sympathy line for all it is worth.)

So what did she do? Did she buy me a kennel? Nope. Did she allow me to sleep inside (the easiest, most sensible and PREFERABLE option by far)? Nope.

She bought me a coat. A COAT, for Dog's sake.

Me. Tin Tin. Who NEVER wears clothes. Ever.

(Except that one time Jay sent me a bandana, and I posed. And looked handsome.)

Okay, here we go:

See my wagging tail there? The treats made me do it.

My Yoda impression:


"A new coat, I have."


The coat fastens under my (much trimmer) tummy and around my chest.

I hope all you bee-itches out there have noticed how it strains over my dogly chest.

I actually got used to it very quickly. It's lined with real synthetic sheepskin, and although I'm loath to admit it, it has kept me really warm and toasty these last couple of weeks.

Oh, and those things hanging off my collar? My registration tags. The ma thought she'd leave them on like some kind of decoration or something.

So now I'm walking around with relics of my past status hanging off me.

Whatever.

Tin Tin, you look very dashing in your coat! I know about cold. It gets colder than a grave digger's butt here in upstate NY in winter. But I am way to spoiled to sleep outside. In fact, I am a wimp. Anyways, I hope your coat is helping. As for never posting, I miss you when you don't post. It makes me bite my foot!

Maggie

Sophie Brador said...

I'm a nudist too, so I get it. But you look super cute in your coat. You look cute no matter what. Glad to have you back Tin Tin!

Charlie said...

You look good in that coat, Tin Tin! But is it enough to keep the trimmer you warm? Keep pushing to sleep inside!! :)

Isabella said...

You look smashing in your new coat! But tell your mom you would keep her feet warm if she would let you sleep on the foot of her bed.

dear tintin, i'm sorry to hear that the shaking and shivering at appropriate moments got u a coat instead but i must say – it's very flattering on your tight little muscles.

then again, i'm sure the ladies can't wait to see it come off...

Oh Tin Tin - my humans got me a coat this past winter - as a retriever I was very embarrassed.

I wish it was colder here - We hit 90 and all I got was one dish of ice cream!!
