Study of A Lady Sunbathing


Please meet Sassy Mae! Ms. Mae hails from the San Joaquin Valley and enjoys snorting, sleeping and sunbathing. She is two years young and immensely thankful that she doesn't live in a world where dogs ride in large potato sacks precariously attached to the sides of moving vehicles.

Thank goodness for that rubber tubing that prevents marring to the *car*. (This reminds me of the Romney family dog on roof story, from the election.)

Sassy Mae is GORGEOUS. Yet another new internet dog crush for me.

She's lovely, but what a great dog sack! Thanks for sharing.

she's sooo cute!

she's allegedly a purebred Boston Terrier, but she has certain features that make a her look a touch 'frenchie'

I read recently that 'FrenchBos' are actually growing in popularity because they're cheaper to breed (apparently frenchies are shaped in such a way that they can't usually successfully mount, so the female almost always has to be artificially inseminated! cha ching!)

off now to Google "romney family dog on roof"...suspect this will be even better than the story about huckabee eating fried squirrel

I wonder if having a hole for the dog's head is a good thing. If I were strapped to the side of a fast moving car I may actually prefer not seeing what is going on. Terrifying!

She's so cute!! I can't believe people had the idea to put their dog in a sack on the side of the car! If you don't want your dog inside your car, you shouldn't have a dog!

Oh, is that your dog? She is the cutest thing!
Haha, I think any dog would be glad not to have to ride in that sack. Who thought that was a good idea? hehehe

What a cutie! But she looks like a free spirit. Might be trouble in the pee dept.

She's darling! And what ever happened to putting your dog IN the car? Ha ha ha

peter, I can assure you that the lady has no such problem. she is, in fact, mortified by incontinence.
