I LOVE the Velma idea maybe something like this sized down?

Oh I've been looking for a good dog sweater pattern. My dog (MoMo) hates to go out in the cold. I'm also going to have to make her booties this year too, because she's decided that she is unable to walk on wet grass anymore lol. When you put her down on it she does this weird three legged hop right back to the concrete (which is slightly embarrassing because people stare lol but they might stare more when she's out in her booties and sweater!lol geesh).

But anyways, you're dog is adorable and thanks for posting the link.

PS- gloriana- poodles are hypoallergenic. or atleast that's what i was told and I've never had an allergic reaction to mine, but i'm pretty allergic to other dogs.

That's because they have hair and not fur.  Some other ones are Bichons, Havanese and the Maltese.  The down (and plus side) is that they don't shed so they need to be groomed and clipped.

Thanks so much for the link - I can't wait to try it!  I am getting tired of doing the SNB sweater (I have actually done that sweater about 20 times in different ways - as a bumble bee, as a ladybug, etc.!) but that is the only one I have been able to find that you can adjust to "ahem" accomodate the male dog.  Monkey always ends up peeing on his sweaters so I end up giving them to clients with female dogs! 

BTW - a cute trick for the SNB sweater is knit in black, don't do the cowl part, just do a regular neck then whip stitch "lady bug" spots all over it in an eyelash yarn, then do six to eight i-cords in black and attach buttons to the ends of the i-cords (make sure that the buttons are small enough to fit through the sweater.  Then measure our dog's head and separately knit an eye shaped piece in black, once again adding a couple of "lady bug" spots and attach two short i-cords on the top for antennas. Put on some elastic and you have yourself both a sweater and a lady bug Halloween costume with detachable legs!  Unfortunately, I gave this one away to a client but I will see if she has a pic.  Sorry about the horrible description but hopefully you get the idea!
