dapper doxie duds: rocky & penny's mad men sunday picnic in the park







Did you ever wonder what dachshunds wore for duds back in the Mad Men days when even casual wear seemed, well, dressy?  Did boy doxies walk in the park dressed like their dads in a bowling shirt  or a camp shirt made of comfy double mercerized cotton with a contrast textured woven panel inset?  Did little girl doxies go to their picnics dressed like Betty Draper wearing duds that had a seamed and fitted bodice and removable flare skirt,  done up in a lovely shell pink cotton and embellished with layers of pretty picot edge and floral jacquard ribbons, and made even happier with a row of cheery pearlescent flower buttons along the spine? 

Sadly, I suppose the answer is no.  But lucky for Baxter's modern day friends Rocky and Penny, they won't have to wonder at all what it's like to go for a picnic in the park dressed as little men and ladies want to be dressed.  Happy Friday friends!! :)

wait wait wait - did i just hear...?  mom! wait - don't say goodbye just yet!!  hang on...

Uh oh - I think you'd better hope dukduk is not reading the blog today. That's some serious blackmail material - but it should make lil pink puppy very happy!

OH look at you guys! Way too cute. You are very lucky pups to have such a wardrobe. We might have to get some duds ourselves. :)

Pink is not my favourite colour but the pink dud is beautiful.
