(Not) A Gurly Girl…

Penny is many things…cute, sweet, outgoing…but one thing she definitely is not is one of those “froo froo”, pink bows in the hair, gurly girl kind of dogs.

Being a fluffy little Bichon, she looks like she’d love to be pampered and walk around in rhinestone collars and cute little dresses, but No Siree, not our little Penny.  If she had her way, she’d be running around “Paw-naturel” wearing nothing but a smile.

On those rare occasions when we’ve been able to get her to wear a dress at home, to say she was not a happy camper would be putting it mildly.  So when my wife showed me the new outfit that she had bought in Japan for Penny, I was understandably doubtful.

Yes, I thought the pink and plaid outfit with matching harness was cute, but did I think that Penny would love wearing it…mmm not so much.  Throwing caution to the wind, we called Penny over and had her try it on for size.  As expected…she wasn’t as thrilled with the idea as we were.

"Dresses is for gurls...!"

My wife, not wanting to give up on Penny’s inner “gurly girl”, suggested that perhaps a change of scenery was in order, so we all headed over to the doggy park.

"Everybody's staring..."

Sad Face

At first she didn’t even want to step on the field and seemed a bit ashamed to be out in public wearing something so feminine, but as time passed she slowly forgot all about what she had on and started to play with all the other dogs.

Sometimes a treat helps break the ice...

"Hey, you're not wearin any pants...!'

"Hmm...wearin clothes isn't so bad after all"

After just one day, I don’t think that Penny will win any “Miss Feminine of the Year” awards, but perhaps she’s just that much less of a tom boy and a little bit closer to becoming a real “gurly girl”.

"Gurls are dandy...made of candy"
