Weenie Wednesday: Conrad’s Sweaters: A Retrospective

Sweater weather looms distantly in the future here — usually shows up around Halloween? I have posted things like this before, but who’s gonna stop me now? Conrad models sweaters so perfectly and professionally (kind of). I like to review his wardrobe periodically to give away stuff that doesn’t fit his ever-plumping weenie bod and see what new things I can add. So here’s some of what he has donned in the past!

bluestripeblueandgreenmooseyscarletandtanrainbowsweaterI think we did have to give away the marled technicolor sweater because Conrad got too swole.

Weenie Wednesday

I have a very short “bucket list.” Frankly, I am not really into bucket lists at all, as I change my mind about things on a whim quite frequently. Best as I can remember, my bucket list has two, maybe three things on it, and they all involve animals:

1. Shark diving

2. Frolic with wolves because they are SO FLUFFY

3. Jump side-saddle

Number 2 is about halfway crossed off, as I got to pet a rescue wolf while I was in line at the Village Alamo Drafthouse to see (probably) a Sherlock Holmes movie. The wolf was lusciously fluffy, friendly, and as big as a mastiff.

So what does any of this have to do with Weenie Wednesday? Socks. Socks are the segue. Socks with a howling wolf, socks with dachshunds.

And His Majesty Cookie Face.

Weenie Wednesday: Chilly Dog Sweaters

Conrad has a lot of sweaters. People remark that Conrad has more sweaters than they do. While he has sweaters in a variety of different brands and materials, my favorites and his are definitely Chilly Dog Sweaters. I stumbled upon the brand via Amazon, but you can check out their website! Seriously, read the About Us section if you need a little warm & fuzzy consumer pick-me-up.

monkeyhoodieTheir sweaters are 100% wool, which keeps Conrad quite warm on our walks when it’s chilly out. I love them, and I will definitely be buying Conrad more! They are extremely well-made, durable, washable, and beautiful! Also, so stinkin’ cute, with little ears or antlers on the hoodies. And long enough for dachshunds! Total plus in my book, as his other sweaters are pretty short on him and leave his butt cold.

This one isn’t on the website, but I am 95% sure it is a Chilly Dog Sweater. Probably should have double-checked the tag before writing about it!

If your dogs need sweaters, I strongly and cheerfully suggest trying the Chilly Dog Sweaters.

exoticSuch pathos!

Okay, I’m done. Stay warm out there, friends, ponies, and pups!

Full disclosure: I have bought or been gifted via friends all of Conrad’s sweaters and I write about Chilly Dog Sweaters totally of my own accord. It’s a great brand with a great product, and I just wanted to share, as many of you have complimented Conrad’s sweaters whenever he’s wearing the Chilly Dog ones.
