Before I had a dog, I thought it would be silly to dress a dog. Now, I look but I have not bought anything - except for a christmas sweater that he wore last year.

I was just wondering if you put clothes on your dog? Is it just a particular season or all year around?

The only time I have put clothes on my dog is a snug t-shirt after surgery.

i only dress my male shih tzu when it's winter and i cut his hair too short...then he has a sweater that i put on him to keep him from shivering with cold. he just doesn't look dignified in clothing...that's what he has his fur for!

oh, but hey, this is funny! something that he does with the sweater sometimes:

the sweater is a red and green plaid turtleneck, and sometimes in the middle of the night he'll work it down over his hips, so when we wake up and look at each other, it looks as if he has a kilt on. never fails to crack me up!

Before I had clothes for him, but it was more because it was silly and he didn't mind since his hair was still short.

Now he HAS to wear a shirt or he will scratch himself raw. He does have a lot of them because they're worn daily. Lol they make him look even more sissy like; when really he's a rough tough boy. Since he has to wear them I made them cute. I make all of his clothing so it fits him and the arms are made for a dog. They aren't made like human arm holes. And the're all hand painted.

Deadbolt is his nickname.

When I first got him I made him this hoodie.. I made it out of an infants hoodie. I altered it so it would fit right on him.

Shadow is a brat about cold weather. She loves wearing her coats. The hoodie is her fave.

We are getting ready to move to someplace that gets a lot of snow, and I am sure there is a 2 piece snow suit in her future........

My other half's dog is dressed as a "Harley Dog" more often than not.

It would be cute if it weren't so stupid and pathetic.

That is so funny - my husband is absolutely opposed to even the thought of dressing the dog too! He says the dog will be "humiliated" but I really think it is because he knows how much money I can spend dressing kids!

They have worn the silly rabbit ears or devil horns at Halloween to make the kids giggle, but other than that....NO!
