Busy with a new puppy!

Meet Shelley, the newest resident in the Sea of Shoes household as of Friday. She's a three month old 'maltipoo' (stupid name, cute breed-its a maltese and poodle mix) and is the cutest tiniest thing you've ever seen. Staci-the hideous orange oversized rat with catfish whiskers you may have glimpsed on Sea of Shoes from time to time-feels very threatened by our designer puppy. To add injury to insult she's been wearing a skunk costume for a good part of this weekend as well. Poor Staci…she's still my favorite dog.

It's really difficult to get a good picture of Shelley because she never stops moving…

See what I mean?

(Never got around to posting the picture I took of the above outfit…here it is)

I'm wearing a J. Crew pleated front cotton shirt, Y-3 skirt, vintage rhinestone necklace, and my mom's Chloe open toe boots.

Sigh…today is officially the last day of summer. Tomorrow is my first day of my junior year and I have to dig my hideous school uniform out of my closet.

    A reminder from a breeder of pure breed AKC standard poodles, there is no such thing as a labradoodle or a maltipoo or poomaltie or whatever. They are just mixed breeds like any other you can adopt. People place names on these “designer breeds” to make money selling them, and that feeds puppy mills. Please buy from a reputable breeder or adopt a dog that has no home. There is an archive article about designer dogs on the internet at NewYorkTimes.com –
    Thanks for your awareness, Kim

    thanks for your concern kim-over the years my family has had about 150+ dogs come through our home, we were active members of the north texas corgi and bullmastiff rescue for a very long time. all of our dogs have come through us
    second handed’ and when we visited the breeder this weekend we had planned to do the same-there was a puppy that had been attacked by a coyote so badly that its body had been twisted and the owners returned him but this dog turned out to be very male-agressive (not a good thing in our household-we have one other male agressive corgi) and ended up falling for Shelley. if this had not been the case we would have adopted a dog that was truly in need of a home.
    i believe that the puppy we had planned on adopting will be going to a new home soon.

    What I love about how you dress, is that you really wear and appreciate all of your clothes. You seem to really utilize what is in your wardrobe. It is very cool.

    your puppies are absolutely adorable. I agree with the dorky name (malti-poo??) but the breed itself is quite sweet.
