Magic Sweater

It was only 6 degrees outside yesterday. Before taking Stella on her walk, my girl put this sweater on her. One minute she was squirming all over the place, and as soon as the hood went over her head she just froze.

Seriously. She didn't move for almost 2 minutes. She was glued to that spot...

except for this little head tilt.

Nobody was holding her there. She just sat there while I took photos of her from every angle.

She stood there so long Merv decided it was safe enough to go over & investigate.

If I had known about the power of this funky magic sweater, I might have whipped it out sooner.

Any other dog out there need to borrow this sweater for their younger sibling? I'd be willing to work something out.

Goober love,

Who would have known that your girl had gotten a magic sweater. I have heard of them, but thought they were urban legend. Do you suppose those aliens that Grammie is always talking about are real? I just thought she was one crazy old lady!

Ruby Bleu said...

OMG...if only you new sooner, right? It truly is magic and I bet you will never take it off her, will ya?

Lots of Licks, Ruby

Noah the Airedale said...

Hi Stella,
Don't listen to our brother, you look adorable in that sweater. Bet it kept you nice and warm in that freezig weather you're having.

Hugs and tail wags

Sophie Brador said...

Stanny, Stripes totally define her. I believe it may have been zen, or something. Stella clearly needs a cookie.


Tofu Burger said...

Omy!!! That sweater is totally the coolest! Funkadelic colors and magic too :)


Hercules said...

Ah Stella! Mom and I think that is the cutest picture we have ever seen! How adorable you look! Mom wanted to pick you up and give you a big-go hug! Dad thought you were SUPER cute too!

Momo & Pinot said...

OMD, Stella Girl!! You look SO adorable in that cute sweater and hood!! We all smiled when we viewed your pictures.

Now Pinot is in the middle of 'sweater training'. Mom put one of Momo's baby hoodies on Pinot. He was first confused but now he's ok with it.
Stella, it's cold out there. 6F means -14C!! It's freezing here, too. It's about the same temperature and it's snowing now. Sweater keeps you nice & warm. :)

Momo & Pinot

pee ess: We wonder if our christmas card made the way to your place safe. Mom dropped it off around christmas so it was actually very late christmas card... :)

Amber-Mae said...

Hey, then this will be good to calm her down Stanley. Anytime when you need to take a break from all the madness from her!

Love licks,

Molly and Taffy said...

You will be in my dreams tonight.

Pacco de Mongrel said...

Lenny said...

Stella looks pretty cute in that sweater! It's nice we got a good look at her from all angles in it. Perhaps she is practicing for a career in dog fashion modeling.

Your friend, Lenny

Butchy & Snickers said...

Oh that's funny. We can't believe she didn't move. She sure looks cute wearing the sweater though. Maybe it was the hood part that bugged her.

Snowball said...

That sweater is magical! It can freeze up hyper pups! I will bear that in mind that I shall borrow it from you when I need it.


Lorenza said...

Stella looks adorable in that sweater!
I hope after a while she went back to be herself!
Kisses and hugs

Jan said...

Hey, that's neat. Have one in Large for Samaritan? We need him to stand still once in a while.

Koobuss said...

You better hang on to that sweater, Stan. It looks like it can be very valuable. If you could capture the magic qualities that the sweater has and then reproduce them, you can make lots of older doggies very happy. Probably lots of people, too.

Stella is adorable, sweater or not.

Koobuss Kisses to all of you,

Lacy said...

woofies Stanley and Stella...heehee i didnt fink u wood ever find anythin to calm her down...she dose lookies pawsome in it...bol and CALM!!!!

b safe,

wally said...

HaHaHa! I nearly fell over at this. I need one of those sweaters for my sissy!


ps. No GooberPictures! NOOOOO! I can't take much more of this...

Ferndoggle said...

Don't tell Sherman about this sweater. Please...

Because I love wearing sweaters in this blasted cold. They make me want to Goooooooo!

You keep that sweater for future bouts of puppy frenzies!


Sophie Brador said...

Stanny, I heard that Stella's bio-bro was adopted with Janie. Great news!


p.s. Tigre & Baby's guy will be thrilled to hear you still visit the blog. He thinks no one cares ... boo hoo. It's not true! He has loads of fans, but not many leave comments.

p.s.s. The softy poo was from my anti-B's. All's better now! I've been doing some toning up in the poo department and feel fantastic!

Oliver said...

OMG!!! That first pic of Stella in the sweater couldn't be more perfect! You should submitt that in for Hallmark's pet card contest.

Oliver and I were at Swanson's last night for hydrotherapy, and I told Dr. Swanson you might be bringing Stanley there. They will LOVE him!

Penny & Poppy said...

Wow, a magical sweater! You could patent that and make loads of money. Everydog with a little brother or sister would buy one no matter what the cost! Think of all the treats your girl could buy for you. Don't forget: every dollar in human money equals seven dollars in dog money!

Poppy & Penny

Ike said...

Hood paralysis, interesting ... do they make it in cat size?

Scruffy & Lacie said...

Whoa...poor Stella...she looks mad...and she looks JUST like's scary. I doubt the sweater would work on her...she's too ornery not to boss us around...

Loved the stunt doubles courtesy of Miss Sunshade...they look just like u guys!!!

So is Stella gonna wear that sweater till the 4th of July??? Works for you Gooberboy!!!

By the way, I can't think of a goober name for Babystan...Mumsie suggested Gooberlugnuts, but that may not be weigh almost 40 lbs more than Babystan and he's HUGE! I am barkless....


Scruffy & Lacie said...

Stella...get that sweater off will not be in control over your sibling. It is imperative you remove it immediately...cold or not...


Petra said...

And why are they taking you for a walk when it's soooooo cold outside?! I totally understand why you stood like a statue in that sweater. I do the same thing when Motch tries to dress me up.

Putter said...

That is ONE super coolest ever sweater!!!!!! OMG!!!! Can I borrow it for MY BABY BOYS???? OMG!!!!!!


Putter ...:)

Mack said...

Sister looks soooo sweet in that! But she does look a little stunned!

Can I please borrow that for Paris so she will stay still longer than half a second???

PeeS: Can we share Ruby too??

jaffeboy said...

Wow, I must say Stella looks WAY cute in that outfit.

Can I borrow the sweater to put on Kaylie so she can just freeze for like the rest of her life?! Gosh she is annoying at times.
