Shop Dogs and a Fancy New Coat

I went to lunch and then shopping with a friend in downtown Portland today. We stopped in to Michael Allen’s to greet the the two Cavaliers who “work” there and to buy Kendall a fancy new coat for Christmas.


Charlie is 11 1/2 years old and goes to work every day with his owner. They were both doing what Cavaliers do best, sleeping on the couch. We woke Charlie up to try on the coat for size.


Max was doing his part to make the customers feel welcome.

I picked up a new Barbour coat for Kendall for Christmas. Here she is modeling it.

A perfect fit

Now that I know it fits, I can wrap it up and put it under the tree. Do you think she’ll act surprised when we open it on Christmas?
