Pepe got a gift back when i went to San Antonio -- his own sombrero.  He's embarrassed, i think.

  8. I think he looks quite handsome in his sombrero. It looks blue in the photo, but I know better.

    I think it's fun to dress dogs -- of course having a Small Bad Dog who loves to be dressed does make it easier. I think that Pepe needs a poncho to complete the look.
