Puppies on Parade, Shanghai Style

The Dogs of Shanghai know how to strut in style. I am having so much fun seeing what wild and crazy outfits the pooches on the streets are wearing each day. I’ll try to share with you some of the best dressed as I see them so you can enjoy them as much as I do.  Dogs always make me smile but when they are wearing bathrobes, it’s puts life into perspective, doesn’t it???WP_20131225_020

I’ve seen everything from rhinestones to jogging outfits to complete ensembles including booties. You don’t see as many large dogs here but the apricot poodle seems to be very popular and easy to dress up like a doll.  The huge Chow pictured here was hanging out in the ancient water town we visited on Christmas but you don’t seem them that big usually.

We had to leave our wonderful Vizsla, Izaak, with our daughter in Boise when we came to China. It not only would have cost us thousands of dollars to relocate him here but the whole travel/quarantine process would have been brutal to his health so we opted to have Hannah and Mike adopt him. He likes to spoon and has been a huge comfort to Hannah as she is napping alot now since she is pregnant. All things work out the way they should but we do miss him so much.


This cutie was protecting a handmade shoe store in Tianzifang Alley.  Sporting the polka dot fashion trend and a Snoopy character t-shirt, he was protected from the chilly weather and strutting his stuff, Shanghai Style.

We are trying hard not to get another dog while we are here but Thom just saw a post on Facebook for a dog needing a home in our complex so you never know…

For those cat lovers out there (James & Thom, not me!), here is a cat gnawing on dried fish cutlet at one of the stores in Tianzifang alley yesterday-yum!
