Do I even need to tell you how unamused Bailey was by this? And yet I found it endlessly funny, especially since when this was taken she was growling fiercely at a cat outside. Poor Bailey. It's hard to be fierce when you're a dog wearing socks.

It's true that in comparison to ocks, putting socks on your dog is TOTALLY NORMAL. I am normal, people.
