Doggie Duds

This is my first attempt at crocheting a dog sweater.
No, I don't dress my dogs up and no they don't have huge wardrobes of clothes.
This is more function than form, mini dachshunds and below freezing temperatures with bitter wind chills don't tend to mix well.

The whole thing took me about 4 days to crochet which really is much longer than it should've taken but life gets in the way of creativity sometimes.

She's not much of a model.  She seems to view having her picture taken as some sort of punishment.

I guess she's not destined for a life in the spotlight.

This is the best shot I could get out of her.
The sweater is pretty cute I think and it serves it's purpose.
She went outside just after I took these pictures and was able to stay out for more than 5 seconds.  She was even able to explore her favorite holes and nooks and crannies.
