I took a bunch of pictures of all the animals in their gear. It was a pain in the butt to get Buster, Mahalo, Teddie, and Duncan to all sit still next to each other..but some how we got it done.





Buster was so scared and didn't want anything to do with pictures..Poor baby.

The Ferts were next..I made all the animals matching Bandanas; even the ferrets. Theirs were only about 2 inches tall.
Pistol

Cobain

Cobain and Teencie (Kisses)

I took Millie one of the dogs I sit and dog walk a bandana too. Hers didn't show very much because of all of her hair, but she was still really cute!



All done. Happy Valentines Day everyone!

You did a wonderful, stupendous job, your critters are adorable and look so festive, just thrilled to see them, thx so much for the peek. And Happy Valentines Day to you too!

PS Would seriously send some of these pictures into one of the upcoming pet calendars, the photos are terrific.

PPS Did you make the bandanas? Can't wait to see them all gussied up for St Patty's Day but I don't know how you can top it!

Thank you!

I make all kinds of doggy stuff; t-shirts, hoodies and slip over the collar bandanas. That way they're not in the way and they don't slide off. You don't have to worry about making them to tight.

You know I thought about making bandanas for St Patty's Day seeing as I am part Irish..but to be honest whipping these up was such a pain and the material was such a butt.

You do a great job! I have smaller dogs and sew scrunchies (w/ elastic) for them, sort of one-size-fits-most but I've made bigger for bigger dogs too, a little fabric goes a long way, it just makes them look so cute. That said, ours didnt wear any today (bah-humbug!) but I think I'm gonna get on the bandwagon for St P's day (and we're not Irish either). Old Navy has some neat doggie items, they used to carry more (bandanas, toys, collars etc), it seems like there's less things now but maybe I'm just going at the wrong time. I may venture out tomorrow to see if they have any half-price but it's kind of hit-or-miss and I hate to waste my time (and gas) if they have nothing so we'll see. Anyway, yours look precious, can't believe you actually sewed bandanas for the ferrets, seriously they'd all make wonderful calendar-kids, they're just too cute!

Lol I am Irish so I guess I might have to go buy some more material..

How do the scrunchies work? Do they slip over the entire collar? How do they close..? sorry for all of the questions they sound interesting.
