Okay, so I am really not the kind of person who dresses up animals. I swear.
But this little terrier has a mind of her own. And she's obsessed with neckwear. The bandanna was a Christmas joke, but now she wants to wear it constantly. If we try to put it away she finds it and brings it over. We pry it off to wash it every week or so and she gets giddy with excitement when it emerges from the dryer.
Feeling sad that she's still wearing a jingle bell bandanna in February, I crocheted a little cowl for her. If we must have a dressed up animal, she might as well be hip.
Her reaction was less than enthusiastic. She will wear the cowl with minimal complaint, but she continues to beg for her bandanna. And she resolutely refuses to pose for photos.
If you'd like to try to put a cowl on your dog, this is just a simple bobble stitch alternated with single crochet. Rather than putting fastenings on it, I just crocheted it as a single piece, so it slips over her head.
