Happy Holidays!

I have to agree with all your comments that Little Guy is a cutie (thanks! I'm just the auntie..I had nothing to do with it!). But I realized that I've been neglecting these two cuties on the blog lately. So, modeling Little Guy's new Candy Cane Hat, here are Puddles and Bailey to bring you some holiday cheer!

Disclaimer: The hat will be washed before being mailed to Little Guy! And, no doggies were harmed in this photo shoot or taken out in public looking this way, and they were actually quite happy as they received lots of doggie treats during this photo shoot!

Wow. . . there are not enough dog treats in the entire United States that would convince my dogs to model like that! Is it bad I'm more impressed with your dog training skill than with the knitting?

Totally adorable pics! Love the hat!

Bezzie said...

Oh my god, cute little hats on cute dogs? Oof! I think the sweet factor is overloading me! Love it!

Jo said...

Now I think your dog needs a hat of his own!

Awwwwwww....I just loves Puddles and Bailey in Little Guy's hat! I did kinda wonder about how the parents would feel about the hat being on the dogs heads, first, though!-lol!

VERY cute hat! VERY cute dogs! I'm smitten!

PS-I can't believe you'll be knitting 11 more of those ornaments! Very cute, but sure doesn't look quick to me-looks more the time it takes to knit 1/2 a sock! But then again, I'm the one with 1,000 UFO socks!

I love the hat! I agree with Zonda - maybe I should knit an adult version...

Cute hat, cute dogs, cute ornament. That STR colour is so perfectly Christmasy. I am buying that hat book this weekend :-)

Heh, you know now you're going to have to make a hat for Puddles since he looks so darn tootin' cute in Little Guy's hat.

Love the ornament!

The hat does look good. Can't wait to put it on the lil guy. Thanks for washing it before you send it. You know how lil guy's mom is.
