Behind The Awkwardness: Made In The Shade - Pets

“This is a photo of me and my pet ferret around the time I was three. My aunt decided to surprise my parents and take me to the local PetSmart for a photoshoot. A toddler holding a parasol with a pet ferret, along with unfortunate 90’s attire, makes for one awkward photo.”

    Unfortunate 90’s attire? Sweetheart, you had it good. You should see the unfortunate 70’s attire that a lot of us are saddled with for our memories.

    This is really cute, but it does lend to the old adage that people tend to look like their pets … Good thing for the girl, the ferret is really cute!

    Other than the parasol, I don’t think it’s that awkward. In fact, I think it is incredibly adorable!!! What a cute little girl 🙂

    This is cute. I can not find the awkward part. I want to cut it up. But it is just cute. Not awkward.

    Love that the girl and the ferret are both staring off in the distance. Where’s the ferret’s parasol? Aunt must be dancing over there to get everyone to look.
