Fortune's "birdy" Sweater
Since everyone else got something for Valentine's I decided Fortune deserved something too so whipped up this doggy sweater for him. The colors are canary and dove thus the bird reference.

What a beautiful sweater! But Fortune looks like he's not very happy. Were you trying to make him stay in one spot again?

Poor camera-shy poopy dog!!!

Fortune is this super duper codependent, clingy dog and he will do whatever you tell him to do pretty much, BUT that doesn't mean he doesn't talk ugly in his mind! He knows when I bring out the camera that I am most likely going to take a pic of him so he just stands there! He is almost 12 years old so I figure the look is just being too old and too tired to complain so I get the look.

Ha ha! I swear he looks as though he's thinking, "My momma dresses me funny!"

Of course, we all thinks his attire is adorable, but he doesn't seem to think so!!

Great sweater, nonny2t!

Older dogs do have a way with giving us that "I can't believe you're at this again" look, don't they?

I remind my old guy that it could always be worse, I could be dressing him in a tutu instead of a dog sweater. Not that it matters much to him - anything reeking of dog clothes is an insult to his dignity.

I caught him today with it half on, half off. I have no idea how he gets his paw out of it when he is sleeping, but he does. He is my little character. His human sister is doggysitting him this weekend while we are on a romance/shopping trip for the long weekend. She has a yorkie who is 16 I believe and he and Fortune get along great so it we sit for each other's dogs so they don't have to be kenneled. We dropped him off at their house and as we walked out the door he came up to the door like "where you goin?" I told him he was staying with Thomas (my grandson) this weekend and he turns his back on us and walks away like, "Oh, ok, that's ok then!"

My dog did the same thing, Nonny! Somehow she had one leg out of the neck! I don't let her wear a sweater when we aren't home to watch her now.
