Do dogs really need to wear T shirts? Ok I will admit that as a former chihuahua owner, I did subject our puppy to wearing a sweater. It was cold, but...was it necessary??

As we drove through our neighborhood after picking up 3 little ladies from school, I noticed a little dog with it's owner..wearing what I would consider a fall day sort of shirt. Not too heavy, not a tank top either. I live in a very easy going climate. Most would consider it warm year round. I turned to my hubby and said "Is that really necessary? Dogs have fur for a reason!"

We giggled.

My point is this..I turned to him and said.."This is my next blog topic."
He replied, grinning.."AAhahhh..I was waiting for you to start saying that!!Yess, that's what I've been waiting for!!"

I want to welcome my new followers and thank you for your support.

This is a shorty post. Hubby is cooking us dinner ( I know, lucky girl!), and multiplication tables have to be studied.

I love all of your comments..some brought tears to my eyes. Having each other's support means everything, doesn't it? I think so.

I am looking forward to reading all of your blogs as well..forgive me if I haven't visited yet. As most of you know firsthand..I don't have lots of "free time"..I forget what that even feels like..but somehow I think the day I have too much of that coveted "free time", I'm gonna miss these days gone by. XOXO


  1. I love my Australian shepherd, but he would not be caught dead in a t-shirt. Or costume. He inherited a raincoat and booties from a friend of ours after her dog died and there was 1) no way he was going to put up with that and 2) no way I would take the time to put all that on him. I like having a dog, not a dress-up doll. Just my 2 cents! Come visit whenever you have time, but no rush.

  2. In this house we only have plain t-shirts (that were given to us and hardly ever get used), one sweater per dog and hunters jackets (for their protection and warmth).

    I have three chihuahuas and my smallest will bring me her sweater. So, I guess she likes it. The other two don't really like it, but on occassion I will put their jackets on them when the temps are super cold.

    I firmly don't believe in putting my dogs in costumes! To me that is for the humans benefit, not the dogs.

  3. I have to admit - animals in clothing makes me smile, unless the animal looks mad. Heh.

  4. I have a four month old Staff/ Mastiff mix and I just couldn't put him through the humiliation. HOWEVER, I used to have a black lab (great dog) and he would let me put wings on him. It started for Halloween, I dressed him as a fairy (don't know what I was thinking) he seemed to like it, so sometimes, I'd just strap the wings on him and he'd just hang out like that.
