Ollie loves car rides.
No. I mean really, really loves them.
He doesn’t care where you take him. He just likes to get into the car and go.
The sad part is that he is so short he cannot really see out of the window. This does not bother him. Ollie is a glass half full kind of dog.
On this day my husband decided to take him a little bit past the house. I asked my husband if I could join him and perhaps get some pictures of the outfit I wore that day.
Ollie did not.
When we got to the location I decided to see if Ollie wanted to pose with me.
You would think based on the photo above that he was not so happy about this (seriously though, how funny is that face? His is pretty hilarious, too).
I decided to show him how much fun taking pictures can be.
He decided he really, really liked getting his picture taken.
I think it is because he got a lot of love.
Who am I kidding?
He always gets a lot of love.
Dare I say it? It looks as though he enjoyed it more than a car ride.
I think he might be happier than I am with this outfit, too. I paired my grey dress from this post (which has become a layering piece ’cause I shrunk it) with a flannel skirt (similar here) and fringe vest (similar super fabulous vest here) that I scooped up for $10 each at a consignment store last winter. The belt was from Anthropologie.
If you have a dog do they like car rides or walks better? What is your best score at a consignment shop?
Ollie did so well taking pictures with me that I might do it again soon. It was much more fun than taking pictures by myself.
And the best part was… He got to get a ride back home.
His modeling fees are odd. But cheap. I pay him in car rides.
No need to tell him we were going back that way anyway.
