My person is crazy (or, The Sweater)

Dear friends,

My person bought me a SWEATER! ME! Cobi! This is preposterous! I am a Dog of the snow and the cold!

Okay, yes, I have lost a bunch of fur this past year. Okay, yes, I have no fluffy undercoat left. Okay, yes, I have bare patches around my neck where you can see my pink skin when the wind blows.

But, really - a SWEATER?!??

She says it is only for the coldest of cold days in the snow. She says hopefully I will not need to wear it at all. She says it is "just in case" because she does not want me to shiver.

But, really - a SWEATER?!??

She says it is hand-knitted. She says it is wool, and the wool came from sheeps that were treated nicely. She says this sweater can get snowy and still feel warm.

But, really - a SWEATER?!?? Really?!??


Pee Ess Do not worry, Vet says I seem to be very fine. No one knows why my undercoat fur disappeared last January and did not come back. They did very many tests, and everything is normal. They say perhaps I am just getting old. (I covered my ears at that part, eleven-and-a-half isn't THAT old!)

Pee Pee Ess Okay, I do look kind of swanky, don't you think? But do not tell my person. I would rather not wear the sweater ever again, thank-you-very-much.

Your sweater looks beautiful on you, Cobi! Just to let you know - I have a coat for when the temps go down into the teens and below and I am very grateful when mom puts my coat on me to head out for walkies. I hope you love your sweater as much as I love my coat.

Yes, Cobi, I haven't commented before (although I have enjoyed your antics), but I must say that the sweater DOES look swank....and can "get snowy and still feel warm" (sounds pretty good!) ! /Fay and the cardis3 and the New SPoo

Being snowy but warm, may be okay; but we can't move if we have on sweaters. We just freeze!

You look fabulous. I hope your hair grows back.

Well, your Mom is just trying to make sure you don't get cold. I hope your fur grows back.

Cobi, that is a very spiffy sweater and a much better look than 'shivering dog.

Beautiful Cobi, we can understand why even if you look very smart I it, don't want to wear it. We hope boots don't follow.
