Hootie's Dress Up Contest

Hi, it's Molly here. I hope I am not too late for Hootie's Dress Up Contest, but I do wish to share this.

Some of you may have already seen these images, however, perhaps I haven't explained things properly yet....

My "dress-up" is less of a costume but more of an expression of my true inner self.
I believe in traditional values. I'm a real woman, all about  the home and the family.

I like to look after my family. I spend hours running after them, cleaning up their spills, including those they leave on their faces, especially around the mouth area (you'd be surprised).
I like my family to present itself the best way it can and I detest unclean spaces and faces!

I take great pride in doing the dishes. While everypuppy else inhales their food and walks off onto the next best thing, I like to stay behind and ensure the dishes are cleaned, spotlessly!
I spend up to 20 Minutes cleaning one bowl - I do take this task seriously.

I like gardening. Nothing fills me more with joy than having a good dig around in the garden and then having a snooze in the sun on the deck, in the hammock bed.
For naps in the sun after gardening, a long sleeve dress and headscarf protect me from the harsh Australian sun.

I am happy at home. I do not like venturing out much. Although a trip to the beach with the family is much appreciated, I do not like exiting my physical and mental comfort zone.
Home is what I know best and home is where I am the happiest. At home I can be who I want to be and dedicate myself to my family.

That being said, I like to dress  in a way that is most appropriate to the home scenario. A dress gives me the freedom to move around my legs in a way that is best suited to any given duty I am about to fulfil within the confines of our dwelling.
For practical reasons (I have a lot of hair) I like to wear a headscarf, too. That way I can ensure that nothing gets in the way when I am in action around the home.

Furthermore, as a female, I like to dress gender-appropriately. I feel at home in dresses and skirts, thats' just the way it is.
I like strong colours that complement the neutral colour palette of my natural hair - I feel confident at home and like to celebrate my true personality with bright colours and bold patterns.

I am proud to be female. I don't mind showing a bit of leg (see last image). I have nothing to be ashamed of.

Thank you for letting me share this and explain why I dress the way I dress.

Yours sincerely


  1. You looks very pretty!

    Nubbin wiggles,

  2. Hi Molly,
    You are a true lady through and through and I only wish my coon hound would follow in your footsteps! Don't get me wrong, I love Daisy but if she would dress up just a little bit more and help with the dishes I would be happy. I would also love it if she would show a little "leg" but the only leg she shows me is when she's *well* pottying and that hardly counts at all! I love your outfit very much and I think you are on your way to becoming a successful model!

  3. Well, you look like a super model to me!!
    I like to do dishes too, does that make me girlie?


  4. That was a very clear explanation and now we got to know you a little bit more.

  5. So you enjoy the role as the little woman! Well, you look the part!

    XXXOOO Daisy, Kendra & Bella (Career Girls)

  6. We both think you are adorable in your scarf and fancy dress. Hootie is getting all excited at the sight of you and you are surely twice his size!!
    Smooches from pooches,
    BabyRocketDog & Hootie

  7. You look just beautiful and are a true lady, Molly!

    Love ya lots
    Maggie and Mitch
