I love the dog bed! I'll have to try that... They're so expensive at pet stores.

Just wanted to share some pics of Ode wearing her sock sweaters as a puppy! It just makes sense when they grow so fast! One of them was a leg warmer, so it didn't look quite as good but did the job.

These toys are AWESOME!
I use old jeans, sweatshirts, etc, any old clothes really, it all works!












ps: Oh my! Baby Odessa was too precious! So so cute!

Angie, it's so easy and fun. I even made sweaters for my bigger dogs(22lbs) out
of hockey socks(since they are large). As for sweaters for tiny dogs, you can
buy cheap socks at places like Walmart for example, in many colors and fabrics,
the possibilities are endless. It sounds silly but I think it's a great idea, especially
for growing Chi puppies.

The bed is easy too, I made mine from an old blanket that had holes in it, mine
turned out oval for some reason, lol, and for the stuffing I did not buy anything,
I just used an old dog bed that wasn't very pretty anymore. It turned out pretty
good.
