But appearance-wise, she actually does come across as tougher without the little band of pink around her neck.
"You talkin' to ME?"
I bought her a pink collar specifically because I'm so frequently asked "how old is he?" and "what's his name?" In my experience, people tend to assume pit bulls are male unless informed otherwise. I guess that's because pitties are such a strong and muscular breed, which are typically interpreted as masculine characteristics. I wonder if it works both ways...maybe owners of male poodles purchase blue collars to avoid gender confusion?
Maisie is just as cute collar-less, of course. Perhaps even cuter since you can clearly see her "tuxedo" front...though that doesn't really help her look more feminine, I suppose!
"How YOU doin'?"
I also happened to catch a rare shot with her ears sticking out. It's quite adorable, if I do say so myself.
Hope you all have a happy Friday...whether you choose to spend it clothed or not!
