Daily Photo: And Your Little Dog Too

window with vintage clothing and dog
Is it really just a setting of mannequins…?

They really did look real, and I totally appreciated the setting of white on white in all that cotton and feathers and pearls and faux fur and just a few touches of black and red, and even the little Italian greyhound coordinated with the arrangement. But wait a minute…

Or is someone being very good?

He’s real! He sighed and his paw twitched! And if you look closely you’ll see that the woman has her toenails painted to match the dog’s vest!

I walked past this shop over the weekend when I was camera happy on a lovely day. The shop was closed so I didn’t get a chance to stop in and ask the dog’s story, but if I’m over that way again I’ll stop in if they are open.

  • As soon as Mommy saw this photo, she was positive the dog was real; but thought he looks dead. We want to know his story as well. XO, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jo

    • Kitties Blue, that was what I thought too! I’m not big on taxidermied animals, it kind of gives me the creeps, but I think my friend and I–who is a veterinarian–kind of knew instinctively that he was alive.

  • That window looks like it was professionally arranged – very sweet.

    I love their vintage look..Did you jump when the dog moved B??

    • I did too, and I really thought the dog was a mannequin as well, and it was the dog that made me take the photo. I was in photo mode when he moved though–had I not been I would have, but focusing in that way kind of cushions me from reacting to things like that.
