I decided to buy a costume for my bulldog. Harvey doesn’t celebrate Halloween. In fact, he has no idea what Halloween is.
Harvey didn’t even get to choose his costume. I chose it.
Harvey is a little mad at me. He’s embarrassed.
Of course, the costume isn’t for him. It’s for me. And the people around me who will fall on the floor laughing.
Pet accessories have become a multi-billion dollar industry. Our pets could care less what they are wearing. You think our pets know real cashmere when they feel it?
I doubt it.
Turns out we buy many things, including things for our pets, because of how we want others to see us.
Or it could be you have a great sense of humor.
You’d buy your dog simple clothes that cost $10, not $85.
That’s marketing at work.
Good boy Harvey. Good boy!
