We have had rain the last two nights. Lots of rain. Hurricane Alex is playing games with us.
Due to the rain it is not very hot right now.

I was feeling sad thinking about our soccer team failure. Then I thought... What can I do to feel better?? Hmmm... A new dress can make the trick. I talked with my grandma. She understood me... And now I have a new one... and I went out for a nice walkie wearing it!

Back at home... I went directly to my doggie door... thinking of a nice splash in my pool... but a "Noooooo, Lorenza" made me stop...

OK. No splashes wearing my new dress.
Now... Where is my dinner??

Have a good night

awwww lore~! just take your dress off and you can splash all you want. ;)
i know how you feel--my mummy was very disappointed when USA and MEXICO lost....she was even sad that JAPAN lost. :(


A MilShelb Mom said...

We love you dress. :) Too bad they won't let you splash in the pool in it! Maybe you need a bathing suit??

Oh, Lorenza, all we can think is: Oh so pretty, so pretty. Your Grandma is so good to you - you look lovely. Now maybe you need to get her to make you some swimsuits for that fancy pool you have too.

We sure hope that hurricane doesn't cause you too many problems.

MadameMoiselle said...

Hi Lorenza

But mommy love your water and food tray more !! She has been looking for one for me but they are either too expensive of too low...

I bet the food taste yummier served in there..

Glad you're feeling better. Next time I'm sad, I'm going to wear a dress & see if that helps. Did I really just say that?!

Minna Krebs said...

Hurricane Alex is also playing with our weather. Isn't it odd that we lives so far away and the same storm is affecting us both? I am in Texas and we do not have the sames severe weather as you...but lots of rain and wind!

Stay safe dear friend


Lacy said...

Kess And Her Mama said...

Nothing like a new dress to cheer us up! Did your mum get a new one too?

Sam and Pippen said...


Everytime we see a new dress we think that's the best one yet and they couldn't possibly get any better or cuter... but they always do!

This one is our favourite for sure! We're glad you didn't go swimming with it on!

Lola said...

Such a pretty, cheery dress, Lorenza. That's a good way to lift the spirits. I'm sorry the weather is bad. I hope it doesn't get any worse. It's so early for a hurricane in the Gulf.

wags, Lola

Twix said...

Lorenza, tell your grandma she did a wonderful job on that new dress. I love it! I hope the hurricane doesn't cause you too much trouble. I was thinking about you and said a prayer for you this morning when we heard about the earthquake in Mexico. I hope you didn't feel it where you live. I wasn't sure how close you were to it. So, it is good to see you tonight ;o)
Snuggles and hugs,

Ozzie and Rocky said...

This little dress must have done the trick! You look so cute wearing it! We are feeling the effects of Hurricane Alex here on the coast of So. Texas. We have had lots and lots of rain (it is still raining). We now have a swimming pool in our back yard too, lol:) Stay dry Miss Lorenza and keep making us smile!

Hi Lorenza, we are sorry to hear about your bad weather.
We have rain this morning for the first time in ages!
Your new dress is delightful - we always love the bow detail on the back - now that is not the kind of dress you go out in the rain in!
Enjoy your dinner

Hey Lorenza,

Mexico is not bad. You should see how we (England) played. We were a disgraced and we don't deserve to win.

Oh, nice dress. Can you get Grandma to make me something?


Jan's Funny Farm said...

What an adorable dress on you, Lorenza. Definitely don't wear it in the pool. Do you have a one piece bathing suit?

Khyra And Sometimes Her Mom said...

Another inkhredible dress!!!


Frankie Furter said...

Lorenza, I don't know how I missed your post until now. Sorry.

That's a bummer you can't go swimming in your dress. The price for fashion.

Your new dress is really nice. We like that one a lot. Glad the hurricane didn't hurt you too much. Take care of that beautiful dress and no swimming with it.
Have a great day.

BRUTUS said...

They don't call shopping "retail therapy" for nothing! A new dress is like medicine for the soul - any you even have you own personal seamstress! Bet you are feeling like a million bucks now!

Hi Lorenza,

You are so pretty! I like your doggy door. I would not be able to resist splashing in the rain even if my mom would ask me not to.

This may be the most beautiful dress so far!

ocmist said...

Another super beautiful dress, Lorenza! Your grandma is SO TALENTED! This one is so festive looking! I hope that Alex has decided to settle down a lot by now. Since I'm doing catchup, it probably has. Dott
