Sweaters, beds and bow-ties! Oh my!

Melvin’s birthday weekend consisted of a lot of walks followed by a lot of snuggle time, just the way he likes it! Melvin got his usual birthday gift,a new bed, and both dogs got matching Tiennot’s sweaters!  Our dearest Emily from Our Waldo Bungie sent along a gift with this order, matching bow-ties!!!!  Yay us!!!  Let me be clear, we LOVE our Emily and our Tiennot Knit Sweaters.  The boys each have their own ‘closet’ due to all our adoration!

During the sweater modeling session you’ll notice that Melvin tolerates the camera (he’ll do ANYTHING for a treat).  Jake on the other hand finds the camera to be terrifying  horrifying scary (and treats don’t really make up for the fright of it all), as seen in the second photo (and many of the others)….

New bed for the stud!

Twins! (side-note: I was not pointing a gun at Jake. I don’t even own a gun.)

Lesson learned: turtlenecks accentuate head size.

Me: Jake, face the camera.  Jake: No.

There is a very good chance that Jake is in a witness protection program that I am not aware of.

No photos of them in their bow-ties YET, but just you wait, they are a-comin!  We LOVE you Em &  Tiennot Knits!!!!  Thank you!!!

Sweater love.

Not sure if you noticed but Melvin has a very big head. A child once asked me if he was pony. Add to that he is extremely deep breasted and getting him into any type of clothing has been worthy of a reality show called ‘Comedy & Torture’. I once had to cut him out of a XXL dog-sized Redskin Jersey. True story. We figured Melvin would just go through life naked and natural.

Oh not so!!! Custom made, hand knitted dog sweater for just $30 and 50% of the proceeds go to animals in need! That sentence makes me giddy in every way! See Melvin in his below. It was easy to get on, it fits him perfectly (I measured twice) and when I asked for something with orange in it I had no idea it would be so Harry Potter-esqe (bonus)! Perfection indeed!

Get yours here! You’ll LOVE it, your dog will look super cute(r) and you’ll help an animal somewhere who is not as blessed as ours are.
