I used to make sweaters and dresses for my mom's dachshund, she loved it and would prance around. lol! We never polish their nails. My dog now is a male and would look silly.
My daughter-in-law polished the nails on her female pit and since she was a blue pit and her nails were lavender, it looked odd. Someone stole the dog though so they don't have a baby right now. She is badly missed. She was so well trained and so sweet with the kids. They climbed all over her.
