Tilly has a new sweater. Isn't she proud?
Sue is Tilly's favorite person in the world, and Sue made the sweater. When I brought it out to show Tilly, her tail began wagging like crazy, then she sat down for me to put it on her. Then she posed for the picture above. (Does she look maybe like Bazooka Joe?)
I guess I wouldn't believe that a dog really likes wearing clothes. Maybe it's just the pictures of the elaborate chihuahua costumes that I think this. However, Tilly pranced around outside in her sweater, obviously feeling pretty good about herself.
There is something to be said about putting on some "nice" clothes and going out, looking good. It boosts one's confidence level. Most of the time, I'm in my "dog" clothes, and "eau d'kennel" fills the air. Getting dressed up can be a welcome change.
There's also something to be said for spending an extra amount of time getting to know God. It's not always easy. However, it can boost one's confidence, knowing you're wrapped in the love of One who cares for you.
