Sweater Weather

A couple weeks ago, our neighbors took a trip to rural Pennsylvania to visit Amish country. While they were there, we tended to their adorable little plump cat, Snip. According to Sid’s allergy test from a few years back, he’s highly allergic to cats and so, unfortunately, we didn’t get to do a photo shoot with the two side-by-side.

Our neighbors are very thoughtful and brought us back an amazing gift that has actually come in handy now that the weather has taken a turn for the worse (e.g. it’s freezing outside!).

So – not only are the Amish adept at making rugged, hand-crafted wood furniture, apparently they also know a thing or two about knitting rugged cable-knit sweaters – for dogs.

This truely is a distinguished gentlepug’s sweater. Sid just needs a few accessories – a cup of tea, a pipe, and a good novel – and he could be on the cover of The Gentle Pug Quarterly.

    Oh man, Sid you are so handsome in that new sweater! I think the Amish may have a new pug sweater industry on their hands 🙂

    Hi Sid! That sweater is awesome! You do look like the cover of a magazine, sitting on a leather chair talking about the stock market and the lovely home in the Hamptons and the guys only hunting retreat coming up! I can’t believe the Amish knit dog sweaters. I’ve wanted to go to PA to visit a town that smells like chocolate (mom told me how cool it is), so maybe we need to take a detour to pick up one of those for myself. They even accounted for our large girths!

    Ps. You better really watch out for Gampy now. Not only does he love you but he likes to wear that kind of sweater so he is doubly likely to pugnap you in it!

    Pps. Our weather is getting cold too, so I’m glad o got to patrol when I did. I knew you would understand.

    That is a fantastic sweater, Sid. You do need sleeves so you can have elbow patches. That and a pipe would be perfect.

    Hi Sid! The sweater looks awesome on you! I really like the look. You could also be on the cover of any preppy magazine. In fact, gossip girl needs a pug and you need to be it!

    where did you found the manual for this knitted sweater. I have 3 pugs and I would like to do sweater for them.
    It would be very nice if you could send me manual about your pretty sweater.
    Thank you in advance.

    Best regards,
    Satu 🙂
