great for Halloween doggy parade. Our dog would not stand for any kind of "dressing up".

I think this little coat is adorable. I have 2 little Poms and they have been wearing coats and sweaters, tees since they were very young. They do well wearing coats/clothing. Where we live we have very cold and rainy winters, last year we had snow. I am sure that my dogs enjoy and are very happy to have a coat or sweater when it is very cold and rainy outside. Just because dogs have their own natural coat does not mean that they cannot be harmed by very cold and/or uncomfortable climates. The plus side is that they look so very cute in their clothing and don't get as sick or as icky in nasty weather, especially rain and snow. I think this costume is very cute, I will keep ours simple,( I won't be adding the batting as it will be used for a coat rather than a sweater). I may change the colors to make it look more authentic :). Doesn't seem very difficult to create.

adorable!!!

I only understand diagram and not words, can anyone know how to change from wordings to diagram (mesh) I luv to crchey n I like to crochet new things too Please I m desperate Email to me if any one knows or have any diagram pattern xpecially table cloth, bedspread, cushion etc

This is very adorable and yes I would make bunches of these for gifts. Thank you

Dogs have coats and do well most of the time w/o one. We've had 2 dog that have to go to the groomers- A poodle and now a Shih Tsu. We usually put a coat on them when it's bitter cold or right after they are groomed. It is normally too warm for a coat on Halloween or at other times, but I might use it in the winter. Yes I'd make the Shih Tsu the coat and let him wear it if it were cold outside. I wouldn't worry about embarrassing him- he's a dog, not a person, & dogs don't get embarrassed. I would not embarrass myself by making him burn up with that coat on in the fall just so I could make a "fashion statement."

I have a Chiwennie he is always called a Mexican Hot dog. I am going to make this for him for Halloween. Love it

Of course!! It would be a show stopper no matter when or where they were wearing it!!! Totally Cool.

this is just too cute.... i have seven doxies and i am going to make them all one for a halloween pic for next year.... too cute

Absolutely would make this. Got the pattern saved on my computer, will probably make as a Christmas gift for my husband's min pin/dachsund mix. May change up the pattern for the bun a bit, but I think it's cute. I just designed a two-button Henly-style dog sweater for him, gotta sew on the buttons now. I have a Chinese Crested of the hairy hairless variety and she wears sweaters most of the year. This isn't her style however.

I have an adorable boy dachshund and I would never make this for him. Some dogs do like sweaters but my dog just gives me a sad look when I put one on him and he won't move at all. For me this is degrading to the dog. I would never put this on my sweet little dog who daily gives me such unconditional love. Robin

This is the most ridiculus thing I've ever seen. Something for cold weather is one thing but I would never embarrass my pet with this...UGH!

I have made dog sweaters, but I would never make this.

My Chihuahua's LOVE their clothes and get all excited when I bring them out because they know they are going to get all dolled up and go to the dog park. In the warm weather I don't dress them, but they do love it when there is a little nip in the air! They also all have parkas for winter and love to wear them outside - it keeps them warm!

I think this is an adorable idea for a halloween costume, if you're into all of that, but it's a little silly for a coat. My dog is not a cold weather dog & I put a little coat or sweater-looking thing on her when it's very cold out & it doesn't bother her at all. Unless you're looking at this costume very close though its difficult to tell it's a hot dog & a bun because better colors could have been used, resembling the bun and hot dog better. To answer the question, I would not make this because a more practical dog coat/sweater would keep a dog warmer than this.

I agree with those who would never make this. Dressing up a dog in very cold weather might be practical for purposes of warmth, but if I put a coat on a dog, it would be a very plain-looking garment. I think it's stupid and degrading to put something on an animal that looks silly. This is a very silly-looking costume of not much practical value. As catnaps 7028372 says, those with time on their hands could play fetch with their dog... or maybe if the dog won't fetch, you can try obedience training. That would be more useful.

Well I love it and will be making it for my Sister dog for as a gift to her. Sassy will love wearing it and my sister will love it on her. Sassy is a hot dog.

Please if I put that on my dog he would run away from home. Who really would make this :)

I think it is pretty neat to dress up your dog or cat I know I would do it if I had a aminal because I use to dress up my dog before it died. And I love the outfits you can make for your aminal good job I might try to make it for my moms dog.

I think dressing a dog in anything is degrading to the dog. I have 2 Labs and not only would they not allow me to put anything on them I wouldn't even consider doing so.

With all due respect to the artist, it's hard to discern this is a hot dog. As to the question posed, no, I would never make this; yes, it is mean to the dog. Further, our society is getting carried away pretending that dogs are mini humans and want to be treated as such. In reality, they want to be dogs and not forced to pretend they're human. If you have time on your hands, maybe you could crochet for a charity, and play fetch with your dog.
