I have rasing mini pins for about 4 yrs and when I sell a pup I always dress them in doll clothes when they come to pick them up. My mini oins like to get dressed up in their going out clothes as they know they are going to go. I have evening clothes for both the boys and girls... Is that silly or just fun?

I love to put clothes on my doxi. Her name is Izzy and she loves to wear them too. I will strecth out the neck and she sticks her nose in. She is cold by nature and this helps keep her warm.

Isn't it cool that they love getting dressed..I buy stuffed animals that have clothes on at the thrift store and then take them off and give the stuffed animals to my greaat dane she loves stuffed animals. I dress the mini pins so cute too. They all have winteer clothes when it is cold they beg for the sweaters to be on.

I buy children's clothes size 9 or 12 months and they fit better than the ones made for dogs.LOL Doxies are hard to fit because of their body style.

I bet she is pretty too. My girls are not as silly about getting dressed as Jose he loves to put his clothes on . I got him a white shirt with a bow tie he loves that. I also have a suit for him that he will go get for me when he thinks he should be dressed. Sometimes he just insists he gets dressed so I take him for a ride and he loves it. I take him to Petsmart on Sundays and he looks forward to it. My Boston Terrier Clyde hates to get dressed. I buy adult sweat shirst and cut the arms off for Deliah she is a great dane. She does not like to go outside when it is cold without her shirt or sweater. Jose will wear his boots when it is raining he hates getting his paws wet. Also they are sooooooooo cute

I agree. Most short hair dogs LOVE wearing clothes because they are trained to. They realize that they get more attention when wearing the clothes. They also realize that if it is cold out, they are warmer. I trained my min pin by bringing him out in the cold without a sweater on, and then bringing him back out with a sweater on. Now he fights me when we get inside to keep his little clothes on! He loves them! I knit him many of his sweaters, but I also have a store bought jacket for those extra cold days. I think it is fun. But, it can also be silly when we dress them up for the holidays and for special occasions and outing. But, silly is fun! So, I wouldn't worry!

Jose loves to get dressed up but he also likes to wear his sweater when it is cold. If he goes outside and it is to warm for him he takes off the sweater and puts it on the porch. He is such a ham........
