Siriusly Stylin’

We admit this post is a little late, as you’ve probably seen Johnnie’s new threads pop up in our pictures the last few days – but we needed to officially share: our pretty pup is now donning some fabulous new accessories! Before we even brought J home we went straight to the Sirius Republic website in search of the perfect collar for her. After lots of back-and-forth, we finally chose this Billie one because it was feminine enough to stick up for her tomboy name, but not too over the top girly. It was perfect for our little Johnnie.

And of course we had to get her a snood as well. We chose this red roses one to continue with her girly yet not obnoxious color scheme. I LOVE this snood on her. . . it’s the perfect compromise for chilly days where both of us are too lazy to put her in a coat! Or when it’s so cold we need the snood AND the coat.

Thanks, Sirius Republic, for another awesome addition to our foster dog wardrobe!

SNOOD Life

There is a trend sweeping the doggy nation, and it comes in the form of tubular neck scarf – for dogs. Known as a snood, these scarves make the perfect cold weather accessory for your pooch. Don’t believe me that folks everywhere are dressing their dogs in these neck warmers? Check out Our Waldo Bungie’s post about it from just a few days ago (one that I didn’t see until after I started writing this!) or any of Two Pitties in the City’s recent posts!

We all know that the key to staying warm during the winter is to cover up your extremities, mostly importantly your head. Since many dogs won’t put up with wearing a hat, a snood to cover their neck is the perfect compromise to for those cold-sensitive areas not sheltered by a coat or jacket. What I also like about snoods is the fact that they’re (I think) more comfortable and free for dogs to just wear around the house.

When Charlie came to stay with me, his mom sent him with his Sirius Republic snood. While I’d seen so, so many of my online doggy friends rocking their snoods, I’d never had one for a dog myself. On that first chilly afternoon together, I stuck Charlie’s on him and didn’t take if off the entire time he was with me.  He’s still got thin hair and he’s a tiny little thing, so I’m always worried he’s too cold in my house (considering I always am), and the snood was the perfect solution. . . not to mention it was ADORABLE!

Whether we were inside on the couch watching a football game (see Monday’s post) or braving the cold outside, Charlie had on his snood. As you can see, it did not restrict his playfulness or range of motion one bit!

If you live somewhere cold, I highly recommend you invest in such a versatile piece of doggy clothing!  It’s pretty much a guarantee that your pup will look irresistibly cute in it!


What’s a Dog to Do?

Poor Sinclair is just all worked up over this crazy weather! Here in Maryland we have experienced a total identity crisis for the month of December – this week it was in the 60s! What!? Sinclair just does not understand how he is strutting his stuff in the nice weather one day, and then bundling up for frost the next. What’s a dog to do!?

Get dressed up in cute winter gear, that’s what:

And then sulk about it because it’s embarrassing:

Sorry, Sinny – guess you’re just going to have to get used to it!  We’ve got a long winter ahead of us. Hopefully a family will come along, scoop you up and snuggle you all winter long so you don’t have to wear any more embarrassing scarves.

If you are interested in adding Sinclair and his sonar ears into your family, email me at peacelovefoster@gmail.com or fill out an application on the Jasmine’s House website.


The Rain: It’s My Turn

Yesterday it rained. I don’t like the rain. I often stick up my nose to the rain and refuse to get my precious paws wet. It seems fostermama got a little tired of my drama, so she put me in this green suit. I instantly became a Kermit the Dog, much to my chagrin.

It is my understanding that this green thing fostermama has made me wear is quite the tradition in our foster family. My foster half-sister Zabora wore it, and so did my half-brother Baxter. I will admit, it did keep me dry – but I will not use that as an excuse for them to get away with making me look like a frog! I can’t believe even FosterG was in on it!

I guess I have to get used to this outfit since it’s likely there will be rain again before I move on to my forever home. At least I look cute, right?
