Got durags? Can I get one for my dog too?
Oh for your friend?

In an interview with the Huffington Post, Simon said “I treat him as if he were my son. I truly believe he acts just like me and thinks the same as I do. I felt like putting a durag on him so we can sleep and walk around alike.”
Can't wait to see their Christmas portraits. We're sure they'll be lit!
