There are basically two schools of thought regarding clothes and dogs. Those who believe that dogs have fur and that should be the end of the subject and those who believe that humans have skin and most have hair, yet we wear clothes, so why the difference? Dogs are rarely asked their opinion although they are quite able to convey their thoughts without need of speech. Meet Santino, foster turned forever baby in pajamas????

Any doubt on his opinion of having yellow ducks all over his back?
And here to also express her displeasure his Santino's sister - also not a fan!

Boston Terriers may have fur, but not much of it and therefore most appreciate a sweater for the winter months. The astute family can usually guess whether their dog likes a sweater by the amount of tries, flying fur, barking, overall movement and time it takes to get the sweater on the dog. Most that like it will sit very still and actually help you by raising their paws and bending their heads. Turning into an octopus with a flight instinct is not generally a good sign.

Ah no..... says Puggles former foster now forever baby!

And then in a whole other category are holiday costumes. It take a very special dog to embrace this concept. Maggie found a way to enjoy her Easter costume - just stick your head in the bucket and look for treats at the same time ensuring that no other dogs will recognize her!

Halloween costumes are big business in the dog world and have enjoyed their own blog space in the past. Here is Callie as the devil and she seems to be enjoying the entire idea!And finally, doesn't Thumper look just adorable in her little dress? Koochie Koochie Koo. Can't you close your eyes and hear Thumper's response?

Funny how I don't seem to have pictures of happy bostons in their sweaters even though they are many? Guess they don't make quite as memorable a picture. Seriously, if your boston or other very short haired dog is shivering or flies in the house to lay across the nearest heat vent, has to be carried outside in the cold, or has any skin condition making their fur even less, by all means put them in a sweater. Rain coats and booties.. the Boastful Boston will leave between you and your best fur friend!
