Trotter the bulldog never minds donning a flowing blond wig. "She is perfectly content to just wear (it) around house as if it's the most natural thing," Trotter's owner said.

We all know that kids playing dress-up is adorable — a guaranteed Kodak moment.

It’s no wonder, then, that a dog would be just as charmingly photo-worthy in costumes and frocks. Because, let’s be honest: Who doesn’t want to see a dog posing in wigs, scarves, baseball caps and antlers?

Don't hate me because I'm beautiful.

The 2-year-old French bulldog knows it's time to pose when any camera or iPhone comes out, Sonya told

Sonya and her husband, Zack, have dressed their real-life Mr. Potato Head up with accessories like pouty lips, sunglasses, a pipe and Hawaiian lei. In full disguise, Trotter has posed as a clown, reindeer, Minnie Mouse — even Harry Potter — for the camera.

Mwah! I adore you!

"Her favorite is probably the blond wig," Sonya said. "Which she is perfectly content to just wear around house as if it's the most natural thing. It's quite hilarious."
