Gus (4) and Travis (10) are both rescue dogs. When we added Travis to the family a year and a half ago, we designated these German Short-Haired Pointer dogs The Pointer Brothers. They both like to sleep completely under the covers — head and all. Gus has a thing for socks, is an excellent paddle boarder, and could run for hours. Travis, on the other hand, still has a bit of a limp from a bear attack years ago, but he still gets around ok. Both love the camera — maybe just because they're hoping for a treat — and don't mind when we dress them up.
Raincoats, winter booties, Santa hats...we're all familiar with the sight of dressed-up dogs. Heck, some of us even partake in the practice of clothing our own canines. Sure, it's silly — but when done right, it's the most adorable thing ever
. Dog owner Stephanie says that her German shorthaired pointers, Gus and Travis (fondly called The Pointer Brothers), get excited when she brings the camera out.
"They associate it with treats, but they also love to please and 'work,'" she says. "I know a lot of dogs would hate wearing hats or being dressed up, but my guys seem to really enjoy it." We'll let the photos speak for themselves.
