Methinks Miss Ebby has just upped the EF canine style stakes. Lookin' mighty good!

(And toasty warm.)


I am very impressed with your knitting skills. My New Year's resolution is to learn to knit. (Actually, I should also learn to card and spin - got to do something with the fur tumbleweeds floating around the house...)

Re: You know you have gone to the dogs.....

Lovely sweater!

I can crochet, but knitting escapes me. I admire your skill too!

Lily the pup would not tolerate a sweater.

She's pretty spoiled already, but she also got a box of treats for Christmas. Plus a pile of new toys in October when I came back from the U.S.

Happy New Year to all the pets!

The good thing is that for Chis you can find prét-ŕ-porter which is a bit more complicated in XXXL

I had to look it up ,too but ended up knitting free style, taking her coat to measure and in between she had to try it on, which came with a goody every time.

Dirty Harry, Captain Greybeard's avatar mutt, needs no sweater. He's nicknamed "Hairy" for a reason.

Taking into account that your dog is smaller than Ebby's head it shouldn't take too long to knit one. I'll pm you and tell you what you need to measure.

Yes, halfprice coats are a good thing. I bought Ebby's online for 20 € last year. Cassie looks great and comfy warm.🐑
