Dogs like Fashion too. OK, well maybe just the warmth of Fashion.

If you live in the North of the USA and have dogs (or cats for that matter ) that need to go outside on a blustery cold day you might need to think of ways to provide warmth for them inside and out.

Number one option look online or in a pet store for a ready made sweater ,coat or bed. Or if you are handy with sewing, crocheting, knitting, maybe you want to try your hand at making something for your special canine or feline friend.  Several years ago I was presented with the need to make a sweater for a friend’s adopted greyhound. I was delighted with the opportunity, but not quite sure where to start. After researching patterns I ended up making my own. The picture of Tessie in the sweater I made for her is above.

Here are some places to start your search for free patterns:

I hope this gives you some inspiration. And if not, there is always Amazon or Pet Stores.  Have an enjoyable warm evening.
