Now That Winter Is Behind Us (let’s hope!)…

This winter I knit a few sweaters for charities and as prizes in my Guess the Breed contests (here, here, and here), and I thought I’d share pictures of the adorable dogs in their new duds.

First up is Jersey, whose sweater was purchased at a charity auction for a Humane Society in the Waterloo area (raising $70 for the charity):

My mom bought a sweater for her dog, Misha, with the money going to The Animal Guardian Society.

Ty’s mom won the contest to guess Cora’s secondary breed, so Ty is now sporting this adorable sweater:

Cutie-pie Ty looks even cuter in kelly green!

During the brief time we had foster dog Noelle stay with us, I saw how cold she got outside, so I knit her this sweater (one of my favourites!):

Chappie and Blossom’s mom saw my three dogs in their sweaters at the dog park and ordered two for her babies (proceeds to TAGS):

And, finally, Hogan’s former foster mom, Julie, won the contest to guess his primary breed, and she chose as her prize a sweater knit for Rocky, an adorable pug puppy with no use of his front legs.

So cute! Rocky’s sweater had to be customized so it was easy to put on and take off around his front legs.

I knit two other sweaters for TAGS (one that I think is still available for sale and one for a very cold and tiny chihuahua foster dog). I have one more sweater to knit, which I donated to the Loyal Rescue auction (raising $40). And that will be it until next season!

    Such beautiful knitting & even more beautiful puppies! Well done Cathy!

    Beautiful knitting Cathy! All the dogs look so smart in their sweaters. My favourite (of the sweaters, not the pups) is the hoodie in grey and blue. So fashionable!

      Thanks, Debbie! I really enjoy knitting, and it’s great that I can pass the winter helping out rescues while doing it. 🙂 I like that sweater, too. It’s similar in colours to the one I knit for Hogan last year.

  • Johanna says:

    Oh, I love Ty in his kelly green sweater–so cute! All your sweaters are gorgeous, Cathy. 🙂

      Thanks, Jo! And isn’t Ty a super-cute little guy? He’s smaller than Hogan. When his mom chose the kelly green yarn, I wasn’t too sure about it, but I love it so much that I think I’ll make another one that colour! 🙂
