rely a bit too heavily on alcohol and irony.

 I'm working on a pattern. Right now it's more of an idea than a pattern.
 Ma Rut: that is the beauty of the dog shrug, you don't have to put it over their head, that's what gave me the idea in the first place, and because my girls have long hair on their chests and tummys, it always matts if you put a normal sweater on them. (I don't want to violate crafster rules, but if you look at the bottom of my post, there are ways to learn more about the puppy shrug and it's various forms of amazing.)

Also: I'm still sick, but weaning myself off of the cold meds. I'm glad everyone liked this idea, it's given me great confidence to try more of my own stuff without patterns. I've only been knitting about six months, so going off the beaten path is a bit scary sometimes!

My little girl poodle would think she was hot stuff in that. I like the length because they can still get a good scratch in without hitting the sweater.

I'm not normally a fan of doggy clothing either.  (Of course, I have a great beast of a rottie/shepherd mix, and she doesn't need or want any doggy clothes.  No way I'm gonna try putting something on her if she's not absolutely amenable to the idea!)  But for some dogs, particularly greyhounds and italian grehounds, and other low-body-fat dogs, like my sis's rat terrier mix, sweaters in cold climates aren't just fashion, baby!  It looks so comfy and easy to put on!  Having struggled once or twice to put a Scottie in a tartan jacket, I know how difficult it can be, and this looks like it pretty well solves the problem.  Would not be enough coverage for MY climate in winter, but that's easily solved by some additional shaping.  I imagine it's probably perfect for a Las Vegas winter.

Sometimes I post at Lothruin.com!

Oh, that is soo cute on your doggie!! My FH would absolutely hate it (he hates all dog clothing), but I say, if your dog isn't itching to get it off, it's a cute hit!  Grin
