A few weeks ago, I bought Abby an adorable faux suede coat with a fur lining. It terrified her! She'd stroke the fur lining and say "Shah!" (soft), but she'd run away screaming any time I tried to put it on her. I cried when I returned it because it was so cute! I so wanted one for myself.
I should've learned my lesson.
I bought her this duck costume for Haloween thinking she would look adorable and it would keep her warm. After several laps around the house, I've given up. It's going back tomorrow. She thinks it's a neat toy, but I couldn't get anywhere close to her to get it on her.
Abby made a liar out of me. I tried again after her bath, and she let me put it on her with no problem. She LOVES it! I thought I was going to have a fight on my hands when it came time to take it off.
I took a bunch of pictures outside this afternoon. You can see them on flickr.
