The poodle is not wearing a coat, It's fur has been dyed pink and purple, I'm not a fan of animals having their fur dyed but I don't know what type of dye is used and they did look cute. They were not for sale, just there helping their owner who had a pet supply stall at the market.
I have not given in yet and bought Emily a cat water fountain (they cost $80 and what if she still preferred the laundry tub) so she has to make do with the laundry tub with the tap just dripping a bit. There are three water dishes on the floor but they are not good enough.
I made the mistake here of opening a wardrobe door to look for something and Charlotte immediatley leapt to the top shelf via my back and shoulder as she does on occasion when Im silly enough to open a cupboard door when she is nearby. I had to get a ladder to get her down-and no Charlotte I don't want the christmas paper yet, still six months to Christmas.
