Fringe on Halloween

One of my favorite new trends right now is FRINGE! Whether it's bangs or on bags and shoes, fringe is definitely IN here in Ohio! On my last thrift store adventure I was thrilled to pick up a long brown cardigan with fringe on the ends, and I can't wait to shoot pics and share it with you guys. Combined with my fringed boots (also a thrift store find) I think I have a winning outfit that will be just perfect for fall! What do you think about the current fringe trend?

This is what it would have looked like in a real, live dog:

Now, under normal circumstances, of course, we would never recommend that a veterinarian treat a human, but in the midst of a zombie apocalypse, well ... physicians might be hard to come by, governing boards and malpractice laws are out the window, and if one of your party is bleeding to death, a veterinarian just might give that person the best chance of survival.

Which got us thinking ... how else might a veterinarian prove useful in a zombie apocalypse? Here are our top 5 reasons you'd want a veterinarian as part of your zombie apocalypse team:
