Small Girl, Big Ideas

The Glass Slipper

Back when I first got Raynor, I wanted to have matching puppy mamma/daughter things. I was really into this, and my mom bought us a matching tee and hoodie set from Toru Dog back in 2009 for Christmas, the first year I had Raynor. I open the package, and realize that I had drastically misunderstood the concept of a large, and voila, the littlest large ever that didn't even fit over Raynor's head back when she weighed just at 40 pounds. I stuck it in a jar (I kept dog things in a beverage jar back in Cincinnati for who knows what reason) and waited for my future corgi.

Fast forward a year and a half, and enter Teemo. When I got Teemo, he was only 21 pounds, and this sweatshirt was a perfect little fit on him. Like Cinderella's glass slipper, only you know, a purple sweatshirt on a male dog. I wanted to show us in matching purple - two peas in a pod - only he'd definietly gained 10 pounds and it might be a little tight. He definitely looks a little chunky in these photos. But it's okay, it's what makes him amazing.

  2. Currently trying to nag my mum into us getting a dog. I figure if I moan about huskies then something smaller will appear like a compromise x

  3. How cute is this! Sometimes my boyfriend and I match on accident, but it's not really the same thing. Maybe I should get a dog.

  4. Awww thats SO cute that you have matching tees with the pup, that's adorable. MrDukes winter jacket is the same colour as mine, so I guess that works too!

  6. Chunky or not, your dog is precious. Haha, now he's just snug as a rug in it, isn't he? Besides, we all know that's he's just fluffy and fabulous, not chunky. ;) Or maybe he's big-boned? I could think of a thousand excuses!

    I adore your bright pink skirt, Katherine. I hope the weather stays amazing (it looks beautiful here) so you can walk your dogs a bunch!

  15. The three of you look so adorable! I never thought of dressing my boy, but from the day 1 I always wanted for him to have a red leather collar and lead because the colour suits him. Needless to say, he's got one. :)

  19. Things never fit on corgis quite the way you think they would. They look like small dogs, but really, it's only their legs. I have a 6 pound corgi mix (she looks like a mini corgi) and I always underestimate her little log body. Her short legs sort of give her an advantage in that she can slip them outta the sleeves, but then she can't get her head out.

    Glad to have found your blog!

  23. It is so funny that we are THE SAME PERSON.
    I looked at that photo of you with the wavy hair...I actually think I want mine to be more curly than that. Maybe I really do just want a perm perm. Haha. I don't know, I'm super nervous about it. I was thinking I'll let it grow more and see. My hair lady is pretty much the perfect hair lady for me so she will know what to do. Haha.
