Humiliated Dog

My sister has this great little dog Emmett, who I think is a great dog. I am sure he doesn't think of me as anything since he really doesnt like people that much. But since I think he is great, I decided to make him a sweater for when it is cool in the mountains of NC. I found pattern in Crochet Today. I got it all done just in time for her visit. One look on her face - I knew this was not going to fit. My assumption was proved correct when I saw the picture. It looks more like a some sort of PBS super hero outfit - turtleneck cape.

It fits a bit better on her cat. So what did I learn from this? Next time I make a sweater for Emmett, I will do it while I am visiting him, so I can chase him around to measure if what I am doing will actually give him a sweater, instead of a silly photo op.

Ah, but what a great photo op it was! Made me laugh, so thank you very much.

I Love You,

I think Emmett is a cool name for a dog.

Thanks! His name was inspired by the movie "Emmet Otter's Jugband Christmas." I highly recommend it if you haven't seen it.

Okay, I LOVE Emmet Otter's Jugband Christmas. That is a great name.

Cindy-keep trying. Great post.

Aww, Emmett looks so cute! Kitty looks like she's really enjoying her new sweater made by her Auntie.

My Dog Maxine, just told me to get busy. She wants a sweater now too. See what you started!

We have a Jack Russel too. Found her in the woods of Virginia after she killed a bear. She is a big baby now, though still ferocious with animals ten times her size, the clothes the wife puts on her are a wretched thing for me to see.

Oh how I would she had retained her dignity before we brought her home.

On the contrary, I think Emmett looks cool with it! Perhaps because I'm more of a dog-person. Nice work!
