The Holiday Advent (As In Advent-ure) Posts: Day 6 – Deck The Paws

"Are you kidding me?"

I can’t believe I’m admitting this, but I drove all over town shopping for a holiday dress for my daughter that matches the dog’s Christmas dress.

Yes, you read that right – to match the dog’s dress.

While dressing up a pet for the holidays might seem a little obsessive, there’s just something about a pooch in an elf hat that adds an extra dose of “nice” to a holiday card.  Afterall, she is part of the family.  So much so, that my daughter once asked, “How come I have a dog for a sister?”

This year, I spotted a canine red velvet dress trimmed in white fur and it reminded me of my favorite holiday classic movie, White Christmas.

I hope you enjoy my little rendition of “Golden Christmas” starring Ruffmary Clooney as Betty.

"Sisters, sisters...There were never such devoted sisters..."


Down, Ruffmary! You can dress a dog up but you can’t make them stop table surfing.
Disclaimer: No dogs were hurt in the filming of this post. The same can’t be said for the holiday barrette Ruffmary is munching on.
“…And, may all your Christmas-es be white goldennnn!  Rufff, rufffff!!!!”

  1. Rosemary Clooney was always so under-rated in my opinion…she would be honored at this homage to her, “Sisters” and White Christmas. Love the post and the holiday tradition of Grace & Lillie in their holiday finery on your Christmas card!

  2. Ruffmary Clooney! Adorable. But getting your daughter a dress to match Ruffmary? Perhaps Martha Stewart dropped you off on a doorstep by mistake; maybe Alexis is not her ONLY child after all?
