My mom bought Java this pretty pink sweater. She loves it. She's always cold and this is very snuggly and warm for her. I had to fix the neck of it, though, as it was too tight around her stocky neck and it really restricted her movement. I took a pair of scissors to it - good thing it's polar fleece - and made a few cuts in the neck. Now it makes her look like the center of a daisy! So cute. She wore the sweater today on our walk.
We are officially the geekiest dog owners in the world, or technically, I am. I bought this stroller so that Java could come with us on our walks. We have been trying to walk Bobby twice a day. The walk we have been going on is about 3/4 of a mile with lots of hills. There's no way that Java would walk that far, so she has been missing out on the fun. Now we can bring her in the stroller, take her out and let her walk for a little while and then when she gets tired and stops walking, she can ride in comfort.
Today was beautiful -- almost 70 degrees -- so we took a longer walk than usual and brought Java in the stroller for the first time. She actually had a good time looking out at the scenery. While we were out we saw some people with a human baby in a stroller and they waved to us. I felt kind of like an imposter, but Java liked it and it's something that will come in handy for her.
