As long as the hat was on the top of his head, he was fine. As soon as it slipped back or to one side, we had to run in and grab it before he attacked it. He really doesn't care about wearing shirts. Rob will throw one just around his neck without putting his legs through while they're playing and then forget and Dante doesn't try to take it off. So of course that turned into anybody coming across our dog while he's got a t-shirt around his neck putting his legs through the sleeves instead of taking it off. I came home one day and he'd been in a shirt all day without trying to eat it or get out of it or anything. He's a very strange canine specimen.

A Carnival reveler presents his pet dog dressed as Cangaceiro bandit Lampiao, during in pre-carnival festivities along Copacabana beach, in Rio de Janeiro, February 15, 2004. Revelers in Rio presented their costumed pets in a carnival fashion parade for the second straight year.
