A New Year. A New Dog.

Well, hello everyone, how is 2007 treating you so far? Have any of your broken your resolutions yet? Better luck next year.

So you all know the joy that is the My Mom’s Ceramic Dog. She has a dog. It is ceramic. It sits on the front porch. She dresses it every month. It entertains me with its randomness.



But.

She’s had the dog for quite some time now. And the outfits are repeating. This is unacceptable.

So.

For Christmas I went to the craft store.

And I bought pretty much everything in the place.

And this weekend my mom and I spent quite a bit of time planning out the Outfits for 2007. It was a lot like Project Runway. Except with tinier clothes. But just like on that show we had a bitchy model. Ha! I kill me.

What also kills me is that I have to wait for each month to show you the outfits we put together. The randomness of them all makes me absolutely giddy.

So without further ado I give you....Oh Thank Heaven, it’s 2007.

Get it?

See the thing is a lot of these costumes are going to require explaining, because they are art, you know. And art is never fully appreciated in its time.

He’s an angel! And sorta the pope too! With a New Year’s top hat! And a noise maker sorta thing!

Ahhhhh, it’s gonna be a good year.

Ha! At first I thought C-Dog was wearing a toilet lid on his head! My eyesight isn't what it used to be (or maybe never was). Very cute start to 2007; looking forward to the monthly C-Dog debuts! Happy New Year to you!

It did look like a toilet seat. Angels have golden thin halos. Go back to Michael's and look in the embroidery section for hoops. They will have them in all shapes and sizes.

I can't wait to see what you both cook up. I think there should be a calendar of this too. You could have a picture of you and your mom and her dog and every month it could feature the dog in a new outfit. You could raise money for the SPCA or The animals of Katrina or something. I'd buy several. Work that up Dawn, and I will buy them all for Christmas presents next year!

I think the dog needs a picture with the shitbitch bear. That would be very festive!

Nice! It's good to see the dog made it through 2006 and into the New Year. Let the good times roll!
