"Yellow Dog Democrats was a political term applied to voters in the Southern United States who voted solely for candidates who represented the Democratic Party. The term originated in the late 19th century. These voters would allegedly "vote for a yellow dog before they would vote for any Republican"."......taken straight from the gospel aka Wikipedia...hahaah
Im pretty sure my favorite American History teacher~ Mr Warner~ taught us about this term back in my junior year of High School. Correct me if I'm wrong, but I believe the Democrats wayyyy wayyyyy back then, were really like the Republican party now in their views!! Right- Tommy Perkins??
Regardless, we wanted to give a new spin on the old term and created our own #YellowDogPatriot.
We really do try to stay out of politics but everywhere you turn, it is Trump this or Hillary that...Honestly, Im not real pumped about either of them. I think if I had been given that same question in the recent Miss USA Pageant, I would of just avoided answering the question too. My VOTE would be for Old Yeller!!!
The shirt design went through a few phases.
We set up a shoot with the famous "Baby Tuck". Baby Tuck really isn't a baby any more, but this is how Phoebe and Pearson affectionately refer to him.
Tuck has beautiful blonde hair just like his mama Amber. And Amber, well...
And the Fabulous Heather Land was doing the shoot. So thankful for her calming demeanor and cool vibe. We had initially wanted to take pics by the Ouachita River,
And a little close up...
LOVE to dress up and match their parents. I know I will be sad when the day comes that the Two P's do not want to dress like me.
