dog sweaterNosing around etsy looking for holiday gifts, I bumped into all these adorable photos of adorable dogs in adorable handmade sweaters. 21 dogs in sweaters on Retro Renovation, you might ask? Heck, yeah, they belong here because first of all, retro dogs are a regular category considering I have a dog named Astro, after the Jetson’s pup. Above: Melody’s pretty pup shows off her handmade dog sweater, $30 from 44softpawz. Yes, can you believe it, 20 more adorable dogs in adorable sweaters — cute, cuter, cutest all the way to the end — click on through what are you waiting for!  –>

Above: Cute overload in a handmade knit sweater and matching cap, $36 from thedoggiemarket. Owner Robin says, “That cute pug by the way is my baby, Buford. He’s a very good sport and gets lots of carrots as treats for modeling.”

    My dog didn’t like to get dressed until I ordered a custom sized sweater for him. I guess he always felt uncomfortable because somehow I was never been able to find a sweater that really fits him. There is a company that will make a sweater just for your dog, you just have to send them measurements, and pay of course. The company is called My Dog Sweater and the website is http://mydogsweater.com

    Can’t help but smile when you look at these photos. It’s impressive how so many people are knitting and crocheting nowadays, and have found this new niche for their handiwork.

    How adorable!! Why don’t they make sweaters for cats. Oh yeah, they would react like the beagle mentioned above. Never mind.

  4. Diana of Mt. Lebanon says:

    Very adorable, but where are the photos of the medium/large dogs? They are CUTE too and especially when shown in knitted sweaters :-).

    Too cute! Unfortunately my beagle will have NOTHING to do with clothes of any type. I bought her a fleece coat, but when I put it on she absolutely would not move. It was as if her paws were superglued to the ground. I tried a lighter t-shirt fabric style, but again: would. not. move. Darned stubborn beagle!

    1. Diana of Mt. Lebanon says:

      Wendy, I have the same problem with my dog Boo. She refuses to move when I put any clothing on her. I ended up buying her festive collars, one for each season and for each holiday. I figure that is the only way to “dress” her up and she has always worn a collar so she doesn’t mind it at all. I would bet that there are etsy artisans who make festive dog collars!

    Ha! These pictures are cracking me up! Sooooo cute! That pug in the Christmas bandana – the look is priceless! I also love the little backpack on the Jack Russell. I have a “sister” (as my Dad says) that’s a Jack Russell and I think she might need a backpack. I have cats, though, and they wouldn’t think of letting me dress them in sweaters. That would turn into a bloody battle, I fear.
