I'm quite happy with the way this turned out - it definitely says "I'm a GIRL doggy" -which is fairly important because, for some reason, 90% of the world thinks she's a boy when she's naked. Can they not see what a glamorous girl she is? I also finally remembered to leave a hole at the base of the collar for her leash to attach to her collar - which has eluded me on every other sweater I've made her so far.

Sweet ZUZU it's been a long time since we've updated this blog! Hard to keep up with this schnoobadoob. Zuzu's been pret-ty busy. When she's not napping.
You can probably guess one place she's been if you watch the first minute of this little video clip ...
Yup - that is Jon Stewart. Yup - he was talking about Zuzu. Sometimes her daddy takes her to work. Too bad he didn't bring her in that day. She and Betty would have gotten along famously. Zuzu did visit The Daily Show just a few days ago - because we just couldn't leave her home alone looking like this:
Last week she scratched and scratched and she made a bad booboo on her lip.
It worked. But it was a little tough for her to eat and drink, and she she had a hard time getting cozy in her bed - although she always seems to find a way. They have a much nicer option in Japan.
Doesn't that dog look happy? Even with a giant blue puffed doughnut around it's neck? The real question is - does this dog ever NOT look happy? I'm not sure if that would have been quite enough of a deterrent for Zuzu, but it does make you think, why a horrible plastic cone? Zuzu's all better now - and much happier taking naps without that darn cone on.

This Friday Zuzu will be 2!
Now all we have to do is make them!

humans are just silly...
I'll admit that I do love to dress up my dog - in fact I've just knit her another sweater. But people. Or should I say - Dog People!
All credit for the photos to the LA Times for their gorgeous coverage of the Westminster Dog Show. Now that it's over I'm sure all of the contestants will be quite relieved to return to their little doggie lives.

Poor schnuksie really doesn't like to be outside when it's cold. She makes lots of very loud snorty sounds when I put her in a sweater, but the truth is, an extra layer really does make going outdoors much more tolerable.
Now she runs under the bushes to do her business....

When we leave her in the morning, we STILL put Zuzu in her crate with her dog bed, a treat and a toy. She doesn't seem to mind so much. As soon as her peanut-butter-smeared-purple-treat-saucer is placed inside the crate, she plants herself next to it and stares at us while we frantically clean up breakfast dishes, pack lunches, hopefully all of the homework, and push kids out of the house. She sits very still and focuses all of her energy on us making sure we don't forget to put her IN the crate WITH the treat. But doesn't it seem like a nearly 2 year old dog should have more freedom in her own house?
Baby steps...or gates. We put up baby gates in the kitchen so that she could at least roam the one room when we are not there.
But every time we come home - she's at the front door to greet us. We've tried piling chairs in front and behind the gate and still - our little houdini manages to get free. How does she do it?
Secret cameras reveal...
it's the old face-smush trick.
It works every time.
