Since deciding to spend all of my left-over financial aid my senior year of college on the impulse buy of a 5lb, 8 week old corgi at the mall, Addy and I have been inseparable. (Side note: I totally support adoption and not buying from puppy mills…this was a 21 year old’s minimally thought out purchase.) For the first several months of having her, I am ashamed to say that many times the thought “What have I done?” crossed my mind. When she would poop on things, or eat poop, or do various other things involving poop, I wondered if I was truly mature enough to own a dog. But then she would make the face she is making in the above photo, and I hated myself for ever thinking that there was a better place for Addy to be than hogging more of my bed than I thought her size would make it possible for her to do.
Now, almost three years later, I have become a crazy corgi lady. I bring Addy all over the city, and–as you have seen all over the blog–love to use her in my posts. She is the happiest, most friendly, lovable little sidekick, and I am the luckiest dog mom there is. Sure, everything I own is covered in her hair, but I wouldn’t have it any other way. Few things have been more rewarding than sharing life with this stumpy little lady, so when I saw this dress on Modcloth, I gasped and whipped out my credit card. I just have one question for you guys, readers whom I love so much. And this is serious business, because I really just can’t make up my mind about this one. Is it socially awkward to wear this dress without Addy? Feedback appreciated.
Otherwise, these could very well be some of my favorite outfit photos of all time.
