Regular readers of the blog will recognise Fifi and Tess, a 14 year old Yorkie and 3 year old Chorkie, respectively.
Here they are in their Winter coats, all long, shaggy and warm.
Whilst we were in Spain, my mother looked after both dogs and took them for their annual haircut, and they now look just a tad different!
This one was a non-stretch fleecy number, made specifically to stop her licking her wound after an operation.
And who can forget this disastrous effort made in rather too much of a rush and was miles too big?
Of course, technically, her Rudolph coat would do the job perfectly well but, quite frankly the excuse to knit up another cute little number from Debbie Bliss’ “Woolly Woofers” in summery colours was too good an opportunity to miss.
It’s called “Mod Dog” for obvious reasons, but it was the tube style that I wanted, not the Mod design.
Wool Warehouse stock it in a dozen different colours.
I put the coat on Fifi as soon as it was off the needles and she wore it all night without the need to be wrapped up in a blanket. (For “blanket” read “one of Mr H-L’s jumpers”, because he’s so soft).
Perhaps I could make a matching coat for Tess….?
