Haute dog couture

Today is my bestest doggie friend's 5th birthday! I can't believe how much time flies -- and how fast a little 9lb blonde fluff ball can grow into a 90lb mystery mix full of sass and silly. We think he's a mix of lab and akita (making him a labrakita -- such a cute name!) but since he was found as a stray at about 6 weeks old, we aren't sure what he is. Oh, and since he was adopted, we kind of made an educated guess about his actual b-day.

So in honor of my baby Elwood Blues who can't really fit into dog clothes (I think he's super happy about that), here are some of my favorite designer dog duds! 

I don't remember where this picture is from! Sorry!

And here's a pic of My Ellie Bellie on Halloween! Don't tell him, but this was the only costume we could find that fit ;) He may be a chunk of change, but to me, he's absolutely perfect! Oh, and this post wouldn't be complete without a HUGE thank you to CAWS Animal Shelter in Delta, Colorado for rescuing and fostering my little guy! 

Happy birthday to my Puppy!

ps -- Before going to a breeder, check out your local shelters. They have AMAZING animals just waiting for you to take them to a forever home.
