We should all be so lucky as to have a wardrobe like Miss Prancer’s. Her attire includes a Ms. Santa outfit, a leprechaun suit, angel wings and many others.

CHARLESTON, W.Va. — Bailey is a 4-year-old, 75-pound mix of boxer, Rottweiler, Rhodesian ridgeback and some other breeds who lives with the Boyd family in Charleston where she loves to play ball and play hide and seek. She also knows how to sit, shake, stay and drink from the bathroom sink when the faucet is on.

Miss Prancer is a 10-year-old Pomeranian who lives with Becky McLaughlin in Cross Lanes, where she has developed quite a love for fashion. Becky says in addition to her leopard coat, Miss Prancer’s wardrobe “includes a sundress with matching visor (her favorite), a kimono, a yellow raincoat, a pink bathrobe, a red cheerleader outfit and various scarves, hats, tutus and accessories.”

Tabasco is an 11-year-old Maine coon who lives with Steve and Tracie Hamula in Cross Lanes. Steve and Tracie tell us Tabasco “is a very big boy who loves to give ‘bear hugs’ when you pick him up.”

Tenders is a 4-year-old black Lab who lives with Kenny, Theresa and Lindsay Bolar in South Charleston. The Bolars say Tenders is a bit stubborn about some things — for example, when going for a car ride, “she has to be the front passenger’s seat no matter what.”
