Well Leila and I FINALLY got to petsmart today. I've been wanting to take her for a looong time and today I was free and the temp was 60,... so awesome day. The best part was they had their coats/fleeces/sweaters etc. clearanced and must have recently done it cuz they had a great selection. Leila got a lovely knit sweater

and a super soft girly fleece hoodie

she wore her cheerleader dress there, and one lady came up and said "what kind of dog is this?" to which i responded "chihuahua" then she said "aww HE'S cute." :mad: I hate that. I mean seriously she has a DRESS on, doesn't that clarify her sex?? I wouldnt put a cheerleader dress on a boy! One lady asked if she was a teacup. bahaha.. I said "no just a regular chihuahua". And she said,"But, she's so tiny!" I wasn't going to go into that whole deal.
Anyhoo I got a super cute small chihuahua puppy calendar for 75%off which came to 2 bucks. And she got a 3 pack of bones, which she loves. :) The tops she got both had been 25 dollars (WHO would pay that??) I got them at $6.25 a piece. :) I was gonna get her one of there fur collared sparkly winter coats but the color i liked they didn't have her size. :(

Aweosme haul!! I love the sweater especially. But Leila could make anything look stylish lol. The biggest thing I miss about not working any more is I don't get out to the town that has our PetSmart.. I love shopping their clearance section. And now that it's nearing Spring it's perfect timing to stock up on all the sweaters and hoodies for next season...

I love that sweater on her. She takes the best pictures, shes just so expressive.

I have the same problem with my dogs, two are black and white and everyone calls them "he". My husband even says they look like boys and not to put pink on them lol. I'm gonna have to go back to petsmart in another town, the one I went to was so picked over!

Thank you! :) I am glad she is probably her size she'll stay and i can shop ahead and get the deals.

Thanks!! :) I just don't get it. I don't think being black makes her like boyish.

I wonder if some people have male dogs so they associate all dogs as being male? Then again people did the same thing to my daughter in a pink frilly dress when she was a baby so maybe some people are just a little slow.

I also went to Petsmart today, and got asked if "he" was a teacup or toy. I said no, "just a chihuahua" and she went into how she had a teacup...then I say her name is Vanna and she still asks if its a boy or girl! Come on now! Lol!
Our clearance section was picked over, we went there for strictly business (shampoo) so we didn't get to bring home any fun stuff. Still had a good time though! And convertible top was down on the way there...perfect February day!

I wouldn't take it personally, i've learned that some things are just generalizations. The person may have known but just referred to her as such.

For example this is a conversation I hear everyday: "Go get me a coke" "What do you want?" "A sprite"

People are just jaded I think.

Cute just the same!

AW Leila so glad you got to go out and have fun today at Petsmart!! She looks so cute in her outfits!! Yes, I have had people think my girls are BOYS when they are in pink :/ I think many people think black dogs are BOYS right away lol Rather they have a cheerleading outfit on or not...Leila is adorable! I just love her!

Wow! I was at Petsmart today and saw that exact same sweater! I SO wanted to buy it for Jazz, but they didn't have her size.

And I know what you mean about the gender thing. I wondered if Tango's frequently mistaken for a girl because he's white. It doesn't matter what I dress him in, what color his harness and leash is in, it's either assumed he's a girl, or I'm asked his gender. What's even more frustrating is when I have them out together. Tango is ALWAYS in basic red or black, Jazz is ALWAYS in florals and pink. I mean, come ON! Could I MAKE it any plainer???

Awww Leila is adorable in her new GIRLY outfits. :D My daughter and I are going shopping today for swimsuits (we are going on a cruise in April) and there is a PetSmart in the shopping center so we will have to check out their clearance rack and see if anything is left. Maybe we need to design pink doggie sweaters that say Hello, I'm a GIRL! and blue sweaters that say Hello I'm a BOY! for the people that just don't get it. LOL
