Im am SO glad to report that Howie LOVES his new sweater! REALLY he does...he runs over, lowers his head so I can slip it on, then lifts each paw as I scrunch it up to put it on. Its been witnessed! Im not making it up! :rofling:

From Knitting For Dogs (http://knitpicks.com/books/books_display.aspx?itemid=30686#), the fair isle pattern (http://knitpicks.com/books/book_inside.asp?bookID=30686&bookName=Knitting+for+Dogs&bookAuthor=Kristi+Porter&myPage=3) without the colorwork because Howie doesnt care about colorwork. LB Woolease, color Wheat.

How did YOU know that one DD should get the Cozy and the other would more truly appreciate the butterfly shawl?? ;)

AWWWWW!!! Howie looks so handsome in his sweater. Great job. You can tell he is very proud of it. :cheering: My little Scout thinks he looks pretty "hot". :inlove:

Chihuahuas are great communicators. We used to spell words so our dog didn't know we were talking about f-o-o-d. Now she can spell! :-)

Howie is too cute for words. And while I know I am biased, chihuahuas are the best sweater dogs!

Chihuahuas are great communicators.

They SURE are! Howie is EXTREMELY expressive. His ears, his eyes, I always know what he's thinking. There are shirts that Ive bought him for which he hides under the desk. For this sweater, he comes running TO me! For comparison...here is the sweater I attempted to make for him several months ago.....look at the difference in his expression and body language:

My human-chihuahua manual translates this as "you have GOT to be kidding me!".

:roflhard: :roflhard: :roflhard: He is just not feelin that sweater!!! Chihuahuas are so smart. I think Howie must know you knit his sweater for him with love. And he is so proud.

Y'all should have seen Amy's little impersonation of Howie doing this! :roflhard:

Great job KK! :D
