Monday Mischief-Sweater Time

The pugs at Urban Hounds have impressive wardrobes for sure....coats, PJs, t-shirts, but  there is one clothing  item they, (or really mom reaches for again and again) Sweater Vests!  Specifically the adorable sweater vests from Life is Art blogger Melissa and her adorable pug Archie.  They sell their vests at their Etsy shop Pug Notes.  Tubby and Ping already have 3 vests apiece and the late, lamented Dr. Z had several as well.  Obviously, Weasley had some catching up to do.  So I ordered him two vests about a month ago and the weather has finally turned crisp enough for him to wear them. 

You can see that Weasley was very eager to try on his vests

Plus they came wrapped in his favorite thing...a plastic bag (see this post).

I even made a video of Weasley unwrapping the sweaters (please excuse production quality as I am no film maker)

The sweaters sure look great on Weasley and they compliment his hats from All You Need is Pug perfectly.  One sweater is a pretty dark and light brown with a black collar.  Its like a chocolate chip cookie and it goes very nicely with Weasley's black cat hat.  Now Weasley can look like his favorite animal, the cat.   See he loves our cats Baby, Scooter, and Ernie but the feeling is not mutual.

Now perhaps the cats will enjoy playing with me.

The other sweater is a lovely Burgandy Red and Gold sweater the colors of Gryffindor house, just like Weasley's fictional name sake!  

and it matches his Gryffindor Hat.

  Now our Weasley is totally ready to play Quidditch on the house team(if only he had a flying broom). 

See Weasley would fit right in that empty seat on left, next to the real Ron.
The sweater really must have made Weasley feel pretty magical because as soon as he put it on and I gave him my Ron Weasley wand, a thoughtful gift from my friend Pat who visited the Harry Potter amusement park (because even I would not spend  my money on a wand, that money is for pug clothes), he took off around the yard.  Perhaps on the look out for dark wizards?

We know Weasley is going to be enjoying his sweaters for years to come.  If you have a pug or other small dog get them a sweater vest, you won't be disappointed.
