"Sweetie, it's okay. Daddy doesn't mind if you want to be his little girl sometimes."
The big dog reaches a paw over, rubbing his little girl's back, ready to pull her in for a hug. Why would he care what his little one wants to wear, or if his raccoon wants to be treated like a princess some days? He just wants his cub to be happy and comfortable liking what he likes.
"You never have to be afraid to tell me the truth sweetie. You're a good kid, and I won't ever let you think otherwise."
