National Dress Up Your Pet Day [Photos & Video]

January 14th is National Dress Up Your Pet Day!  So, naturally, Brett and I decided to do our part in making the day special for pets and pet owners everywhere.  We called up our friend Joanie at Halloween Havoc and picked out some runway-ready outfits for our dogs and cats. (Okay.  We know this sounds insane, but work with us.)  Brett's cat, Bronson, worked the camera like a champ.  Like James Bond. Like Daniel Craig with a furball and a catnip addiction.   My dogs, Wilma, Dolly and Ellie, worked it like they were trying to make the cover of Sports Illustrated's swimsuit edition or, better yet, the centerfold in a Larry Flynt magazine.  LOL!  Check out the photo spread and the bonus video which features my dogs absolutely destroying Wilma's lime green tutu.

I can honestly say that I've only ever seen an owl up close and personal--relatively speaking--one time in my life, common as they are. So it was very cool to run into three of them at the Owensboro Outdoor Hunting and Fishing Expo at the Owensboro Convention Center.

No, it wasn't bad, but Aubrey Plaza, er, the voice of Grumpy Cat, nailed it.

There are times when I question if I'm doing this "Mom" thing right and then there are times when I know I am. Last night, I nailed it. I don't even know how it came about, but it ended in a triple-dog-dare between me and Carsyn. What was the dare, you ask? Oh... I dared my 5 year-old daughter to eat a dog treat. See, told you, nailed it. Haha! Not to my surprise, she accepted my dare! How did it go?

Take a look and see for yourself...
