I need a dog sweater!

Because I just added a new family member I am so darn excited!!! I wish you knew! :balloons:

But… I have to wait 2 weeks to pick her up :frowning:

YOU GOT YOUR CHINESE CRESTED?!..When?! I was not aware of the arrival, I remember you saying that you wanted one!!
:cheering: :cheering: :cheering: :cheering:
I’m so very, very :happydance: :happydance: :happydance: HAPPY :happydance: :happydance: :happydance: for you :smiley: ! That’s very exciting!

NiK, you may like THIS

We just got word that were were approved! Like 20 seconds before I posted this. She is 4 hours away from us and this weekend my husband has guard so we have to wait until the 13th to pick her up :frowning: I want her NOW!

From the pic, it looks like she’s already dressed! Congrats! I knew you were really hoping for this. Enjoy her. :smiley:

Congratulations on your new family member!! Chinese Cresteds are soooo cool looking! :slight_smile:

Here’s another pattern for a custom fit dog sweater. (click on “dog sweater”)
Or… Kelly knit one for Howie, right? Oh KELLYYYYYYYY

Congratulations :cheering: on your new family member!!

KK may be in hiding because we were picking on her in another thread…we were just teasing KK…we :heart: you!!


In all actuality… I’ll probably end up just buying some for her. A lot of crested are allergic to wool. :frowning: I’ll have to wiat and see if she is one of them. I just told my cocker spaniel… she looked quite annoyed :roflhard:

Look at me… I am so excited I can’t even type :rollseyes:

Silver, I didn’t get anything from your dog sweater post :frowning: …is it you or me? I have a mini doxie, so I must custom fit, too :wink: …she HATES fittings…lol!!

:cheering: :cheering: :cheering: :cheering: :happydance: :happydance: I KNOW that you are so very, very EXCITED, as much as you wanted her and, as you know, our pets are family members…you should see my big 6’3" husband with this little 10 lb doxie :roflhard: :roflhard: …we :inlove: our babies :smiley:
[color=red]EDIT[/color]…I decided to SHOW you Lonnie with Sally, you can find them here :smiley:

I fixed it. :slight_smile:

So here now is my dilemma… I hate her current name. But she is 10. But I just don’t feel that I could live with that name. But, she is 10 :rollseyes:

What is the name?!..is it Gomer or something?!..you won’t hurt my feelings if it’s Sally…lol

No, it is Betty. Which just reminds me of Betty White. I don’t really like “people” names for dogs (well I don’t like cutsie names either)… but I do tend to name animals (and children) something very meaningful to me.

What name do you have in mind? You CAN teach old dogs new tricks, u know. And, who knows…she may associate her rescue and new home and her new people with a new name?!

Let’s see – so far I have:

Rory, Linda Lou, Eowyn, Zep, Titania.

Start by calling her Betty (something), then eventually eliminate the Betty.
I think of Betty Rubble and Boop.

I think she looks like ‘Linda Lou’ :smiley:
Like my dh thought Sally looked like a ‘Sally Mae’

Well the pic of her on her hind legs is HILARIOUS!!! You need to knit her a little purse she can hang on to, too!!

:roflhard: :roflhard: :roflhard: :roflhard:
I can see my Sally with a ‘dog purse’ now; carrying her doggie nail polish, YipYap breath strips for dogs (like the people ones) and her treats…all of a girl dog’s ‘must haves’ :rofling: :roflhard:
