Is it crazy to dress your pets in clothes?

I dress my chihuahua in clothes and pajamas. I also push her around in a stroller. My friends think I'm crazy, but I consider Belle to be my daughter.

One time, a teenager came up to me as I was pushing Belle in her stroller and asked, "Where's the baby?" I told her that Belle was like my baby.

Is it nuts to treat a pet like a child?

Well, if it is you're not the only one who is crazy!!  lol  I do know a lot of people who do that.  I use to have a chihuahua (sp?) when I was growing up and I'd put clothes on him in the cool months but only because he'd freeze!!  lol  It's your dog....your baby...do what you want to do.    :)

If it makes you happy, it's not crazy. But I'm a person who likes to go against the grain, lol. Life should be fun and happy, so do what makes you happy.

 It's not something I would do but I don't see the issue with it.

 Clothes no not crazy. Pushing it around in a stroller YES crazy. Besides the dog needs exercise you would think.

It is different. I understans a jacket on a pet when it is cold.

Whatever floats your boat.  My dog is a companion, and has been my buddy through many different situations, but I don't think I would ever dress her up and she would just give me the look and jump out of a stroller.
