Thoughtless Thursday: Another Craft!


You heard it: another crafty post!  Yahoo!

I decided to showcase the little puppy jacket I had last winter.  Unfortunately, I am now much bigger than I was when I was tiny, and no longer fit into it.  Fortunately, Boss is considering making me a bigger one so I can still support my football team in style!

Tiny me in my tiny coat.
Boss usually doesn't dress up animals, she says, but last winter was frigid up here in Minnesota (as is this year too, apparently).  Schools cancelled classes because it was too dangerous to wait for a bus, cars wouldn't start, businesses closed, it was just that cold (no, we're not wussies up here, either)!

My Iowa State Cyclones jacket!
Bosses were fostering a dog at the same time they initially adopted me, and he had very short hair (black lab mix).  Foster brother Harley refused to go outside to do his business unless he had little booties on and a jacket.  If I had a short buzz cut like that, too, I would've demanded some outerwear as well!  All factors considered, Small Boss whipped out some dog jackets and bought some coordinating dog booties.  It made the -40 raw temperatures more bearable, that's for sure!

Take a look!  Pretty functional.  It was originally a flannel dog pajama pattern that went along with a pattern for bosses/small mailmen pajamas, but Small Boss decided it would work well for a fleece jacket.  It was a success!  I certainly like it, do you?

I really do wish that I didn't grow out of's just so comfy!
Maybe Small Boss will make a few for a GIVEAWAY someday!  She'll have to get her mind working on that one- I'll make sure I run this by her.  Literally, and I gueeesssss I can bark at her and let her know.  I just like running better.

Well, I see that it's snowing outside, and it's warmed up to a balmy -15F (windchill included), which is at least better than yesterday's -35F! :)  Time to go out and catch those snowflakes!

  1. Brrrr, dat stuff are too cold for me.

    1. It's pretty chilly! At least it was warm enough outside to snow a little bit. :) That's saying a lot! BOL!

  2. I made Monty one a few years back, just for the frosty days. I've got enough left over for a second but am not that motivated. Haha!

    It looks great!

    1. Boss wanted to make me another one, but the sewing machine is broken so....she's been resorting to knitting as a crafting outlet these days. Maybe she'll knit me a cute doggy sweater? ;-)

  3. You are growing fast!

    Your Pals,

  5. Oh my gosh, that is SO cold!!! My dogs don't want to go outside without their jackets if it's below 55! LOL

  6. Absolutely love that little coat. If you ever do the giveaway I'll be standing in line to enter. My dad is a big Redskins fan so of course that is my team too. The colors are pretty similar to the Cyclones though. Your pal, Toby
    P.S. Amy here to say that you were just about the cutest puppy on the planet in that jacket.


Thanks for stopping by! You're "paw"some. I do my best to respond to my "fan mail" within 24 hours of it being received, but please be patient- my paws are pretty clumsy at the keyboard! :)
