    The last 2 pics are Zeus in his new winter jacket and Zeus and Sully, who has enough fur to keep warm.

    It was so cold this weekend and now this week that I decided if this was the winter we are going to have that my short-furred dog needed more to keep him warm. I am also now going to sew jackets for 4 more short-furred dogs belonging to friends and family because I can’t imagine being taken basically naked outside in this weather and I feel very sorry for those dogs who have little fur.

    Zeus’s favorite winter activity is playing with his ball in the snow on the deck. The last of these pics show him lifting his front right paw because he has frozen snow between his toes. I think it feels like a human ice cream-induced brain freeze.

    Beautiful bracelet.Those stones are drop dead gorgeous. It’s neat that you’ve used created this look,so the wearer can see the stones. (Rather than look in a mirror with a necklace.) Know what I mean? They’re just so unique and pretty to look at. I also like your choice of metals to contrast with the light blue.
    The doggies are so adorable. How cute is the name “Sully?” ;)

    Thanks! They hardly ever stand still and then they are black so it is usually hard to take pics of them and be able to see their eyes. :) Zeus was showing off for the camera today. Sully is a total couch potato and he watched literally from the couch. :)

    Beautiful bracelet Becky! I love the ice blues combined with the bronze. Great job on Zeus’s coat! I’ve made a few for Pipin. Greyhounds have like zero fur. Her teeth even chatter inside the house. ;)

Zeus in his little sweater is adorable! My mom has a bright orange neoprene vest for their dog! Too cute! Now you just need to get him some booties to wear! ;)

    I know. :) Booties are on Zeus’ Christmas wish list. :) Sully doesn’t mind the cold at all. He is loaded with a double coat of fur.
