Oh mine would too. In a heartbeat. Did you see the looks on those bigger dogs faces on ravelry?

I think little dogs tolerate outfits better than big ones.

Mmm.... maybe. But I can't picture getting this to stay on a Jack Russel either.

Not enough coffee. I made my dog two darling sweaters. He hid under the bed and refused to wear them. He does chew on the squirrel costume. It's an affront to his pride.

You have a Jack Russell? They're adorable dogs! You must see this video Useful Dog Tricks by Jesse. The dog is amazing.

No, I have a 10-yo Lab mix who would never ever submit to such treatment. I was just imagining a Russel's reaction to such an affront. I suspect it wouldn't be pretty.

I promised Tonka from his puppyhood that I wouldn't ever make him wear silly human-type clothes. We have an understanding.

Thanks everyone so much . My little chihuahua loves to walk about 2 KM every day . He loves to be warm so a good coat and this snood and he is all set . I made it on straight needles and sewed up the seam . I do not put the ears on it . Guess its like a tube sock . but for the head . Greyhounds need thse because they have not much fur . I want to try it on the circular needles but didn't know how long a cord to attach to the tips . I have a set of the Denise interchangeable needles . I don't knit much so I knew someone here would know how long a cord for the 48 stitches .
Thanks for the help

I used a 5mm straight needle and a worsted and it fit chico fine . I knitted for 6 inches and it was fine for him perfect fit
I would post a picture of him in the snood If i knew how to attach
