Have you ever wondered what your dog would look like in sports attire? Or beach wear? For a recent product that is going unused (except for this blog post), I had the opportunity to dress Mort up in stylized “beach wear”. Unfortunately I only had old sports bras available to stand in for beach wear, and you end up with this photo shoot.

Sportswear Dog: In white

Mort can totally pull off pearls with a deck hand sailor cap, right?

Sportswear Dog: Wearing pink

Mort is wearing a lovely pink sports bra with a fabulous pink neckerchief.

Sportswear Dog: In blue

Chains top off this look. A junior sports bra for a junior dog, accented with a cheap necklace from my costume jewelry pile.

Mort hopes he can pull off any look – he’s just that kind of dog. Want him to wear some clothing of a different sort? Let me know in the comments! A thrift store trip might be on the horizon.

    OMD, so adorable! I like the necklace! :-) Um, how about beach wear? Like maybe a toddler bathing suit?

    • Haha – that’s so funny! The reason I did this photoshoot was to apply for a toddler bathing suit campaign since I thought it’d be pretty good on the social medias (I was told “yes, please apply!” and then “no, we don’t want you to apply!” – arg! But hey, it became a blog post anyway). I think I’ll see if I can find some mini bathing suits at the thrift store :)

        Haha! That’s so funny! I would apply anyway! Why not?! You have a very photogenic dog. :-) Good luck! I look forward to seeing the next photo shoot!

        • I would have loved to (which is pretty rare for me – I usually don’t apply for them), but they wouldn’t allow me to :( I totally would have regardless, if I could, and was pretty disappointed in the organizers for the runaround! Campaign wise I always love the “out of the box” different stuff, I think it would have worked well. But that’s just me! (And thanks! Mort loves doing the photo sessions since it always involves toys, food, or both and the attention that guy craves).

  • Dude Mort can totally rock pink like no one else. And you can tell he knows it to by that smirk on his face.
