Does your pooch ever dress up for your favorite sports team?
Cara Bailey, a former Charleston Daily Mail staffer and current blogger for the newspaper’s Mommyhood blog, recently wrote a freelance piece for another newspaper, the Herald-Dispatch in Huntington, about Marshall fans whose doggies dress up for the Thundering Herd.
From jerseys to T-shirts, muzzles to beads, the four-legged Marshall fan is showing up everywhere.
Jen Chapman, 25, and Evan Worrell, 32, of Huntington, have a Great Dane, Piper, and a Chihuahua named Daysie.
With such a drastic difference in sizes, Chapman had to get creative when it comes to getting the dogs ready to cheer on the Herd.
Piper, who weighs 130 pounds, wears a green adult Marshall T-shirt, while Daysie sports a green teddy bear shirt.
“The bear shirt is a little small now,” Chapman said, while holding the 6-pound dog. “She’s gained a little weight.”
What about you, gentle readers? Does your doggie or kitty share your rooting interests?
