You know, I think of my favorite cartoons from my childhood, Rocky and Bullwinkle, Felix the Cat and Underdog, and I realize how dang funny and subversive they were, but ANYWAY, here is the story about the doggy coat and superhero beagle:
last winter a nice lady on the bus with the wife is like
"I see you and your husband out with your 13 inch beagle. Mine just died, she had a coat, I was going to throw it away. Do you want it?" and we were like "Sure!" and its a perfect fit. The lady also gave it to us the day before we got the biggest snowstorm of last winter which ALSO happened to be when the winter olympics started. So Penny ended up with this nice little coat that makes her look like an Olympian!
But yesterday, you know, I am realizing that she is looking alot like UNDERDOG in disguise.....

Just don't toss her off the deck to see if she can fly!

(And yes, she is adorable, as always!)

That's so funny Gary...she does look like the Underdog!! The Winter Olympics were here last year, my kids really enjoyed the spirit in the city!!

Yes pink and black totally rock. Whether it's candy or a puppy belly!!
