I luv doggie sweaters! (Post more dog pix!!)
If you love your pooch , here's a perfect place to show them off! Show off your knitted sweaters with your dog wearing it, or any knitted dog accessories. I love seeing the creativity! If you have pets other than dogs, they are also welcomed! My next project is to knit my loveable yorkie (Buster) a hooded sweater. (Well, he's my brother's dog, but I love him anyway!) :XX: Share your pet stories as well!

PUPPYLICIOUS!
This is the whole reason I learned how to knit. I owe it all to her, my first ever dog. She is three now, which means I have been knitting for three years. I still take time between projects to knit her and her brother little blankets and sweaters and things. Having them helps me during those unfortunate "baby cravings" I have about once every few years!

I love that sweater. Do tell the pattern and yarn colors please.

I just lost my beloved dog, Chloe (chihuahua), 2/16 from an attack Rottweiler and his lab mix mother. She was 8 years old 2/15. Her brother, Silas is very sad and lonely and I think that sweater would look perfect on him. (attack story is I let her out to pee, turned my head to pick up my oldest and she was attacked, less than 2 feet from my front door and we live on the back of 7 acres....by a neighbors dogs. It was truely one of the most horrible things I have ever seen)

Anyway, not to dampen the mood! I love to see pics of furbabies.

I am so so sorry! I just made this sweater up, but I know I have my notes on it at home, so I will put them together and send them to you!

I hope the authorities took those dogs away! They need to be put down. Any dog that attacks another animal or a person shouldn't get a second chance.

Truly sorry about the loss of your chihuahua baby. It seems that no one is safe from vicious dogs whether in rural areas or urban. We have a few pit bulls in our neighborhood that concern me. Fortunately, they aren't next door, but still make me nervous to walk my dogs past them.

Chihuahua's are awfully cute. However, I believe that yorkies are the cutest dogs that God created. Can't help being partial. I've had three of them.

Here's Pepper in the sweater I knitted for him.

I am really sorry to hear about your dog. :crying: I used have a flat-coated retriever named Midnight Shadow. She was all black. She was the best dog ever! She died Christmas Eve (1999) morning from a tumor in her front left leg. She was only about 7 yrs old. My Dad cried the most, though we all cried too. I still think of her every day. She was a big part our family. I should scan her pictures. I do agree they need to put those dogs away! I will post the link of the hooded dog sweater I want to knit. I have it saved on my comp at home. (I'm at work.) That would be nice to knit Silas a sweater! I'm sure he would love it!

Thank you. Its still hard for me to talk about but the good news is I can go about 8 hours now without crying! That is a drastic improvement. Even my 2 year old still asks about her and gets very sad. (he saw the whole thing happen) Really, just a horrible, tragic death.
