Something for the Best-Dressed Beloved Animal Companion



I don't know about your mailbox -- though I have a good idea -- but I get a lot of catalogues. Most of them go immediately to the recycling bin, but on occasion a new one catches my attention. One of the things about having a cold is that I spend more time at home and I peruse the mail more carefully than usual.
 
The other day I started to flip through the catalogue for Uncommon Goods, a company in Brooklyn. There were a number of useful, well-priced and fun gifts, but the one that I found especially captivating was the unicorn pet sweater. I've seen a lot of cute sweaters for dogs, but this may be the cutest. Before anyone writes this off as impractical, please remember that New York dogs are out walking in the cold and the little ones are especially close to the cold, cold sidewalk. There are a few pups I know that are definitely putting this cold-weather outfit on their lists for Santa. Does anyone dress their pup for cold weather?

This is my second day of staying home and resting. I did get out to the walk-in clinic this morning and was pleased to hear that my lungs are clear and my ailment is a bad cold. I have cough syrup and I'm still drinking lots of ginger ale and, while I'm not 100% cured, it's amazing what two days of rest and care will do for a cold. I hope to be out and about tomorrow, but nothing too strenuous.

As ever, thanks for visiting and take good care. Colds are no fun!

A www... I hope you get to feeling better, sooner than later. Nope, I don't think our 100 lb. German Shepherd would allow such a thing, lol.

I have several rain coats for my little Chihuahua Terrier dog, to keep him dry and warm. He looks very jaunty in his plaid outfits and I am thinking I will get him a Christmas outfit. Be well Carol, I was sick for 10 days with what I think was a cold. Don't go out and about too soon so you heal fully.

I have to admit that I enjoy seeing dogs all decked out in sweaters.

I also received that catalogue and have no idea how they got my name. I did find one gift for Christmas that I ordered. Not for my son's dog, but for my son.

So glad to hear you are feeling better. They say a little fresh air is good when we are sick so the short walk you had was probably a good thing too. Take good care !

Oh Carol, how cute is that! Thank you for the smiles :)

I am sorry about your cold - no fun! Praying you feel better soon.

Hugs to you!

So glad you went to be checked and all is well - other than the cold. The hardest part about being sick is getting energy to go to the doctor. Praying you will soon be all the way healthy. You are smart in taking care of yourself so you can recover quicker!

SO CUTE:) Several of my family members are sick with a cold, happy that you got yourself checked out! Feel better my friend, HUGS!

Ha that is cute! I must admit I know I have more fun than our Crazy Poodle when I dress him up. There are occasions when I can't be doing with a wet dog and so he has a raincoat but he always has a 'do I have to expression?!'
