Buddy goes "SIMPLE DOG" over wearing his sweater.. So it's full on winter here, deeper snow, wind like icey knives, and i don't own a real dog coat. So i always put one of my old sweaters on Buddy for his walk. It's an old sweater with a zipper on the neck, (ey i said it was old!) and i just leave the zipper open. I washed it in hot water to shrink it up more. It's super soft, reeeally warm, and not superbulky. If you do this, you have to gather up the excess sweater so it won't dangle below his stomach and get wet when the dog pees. So Buddy is not wild about wearing a sweater, but he goes along with it like a trooper, cuz he gets treats and praise for it.. But last night, his 1st time wearing the sweater in a year, buddy went all "SIMPLE DOG" on me, acting like he could no longer walk. for real. He started walking all stiff legged, cuz he had a sweater on. His legs worked just fine prior to wearing a sweater. Then he realized his legs still work fine, even if he has a sweater on, and began walking more normally. then Buddy decided he can not lift his leg to pee. He walked up to mailboxes, and stood there, looking confused, and moved on without peeing. Next mailbox, same thing. He knows "go peepee" but, he just stood there, looking baffled, like, "how can i pee, if i wear a sweater?" (the sweater stops at his waist) He continued to do this, for several more mailboxes. Eventually, he decided to give it a go, but then, Buddy thought he can't lift his leg if he has a sweater on. He'd lift his leg a lil bit, and then act like he was going to fall over. Then he did this "How do i get my leg to go up?" routine, for many more mailboxes, before he got over himself and acted normal. too funny, maybe you had to see it. what a character....Buddy got soooooooooo completely baffled over wearing sweater that he couldn't walk correctly, then deciding dogs with sweaters on can't lift their legs.... facepalm. These are actually older photos of him in his sweater....maybe i should have shown him these photos prior to trying to walk him in it, so he could see, "Oh yeah, i can wear a sweater and still live.." NOT liking the sweater much.. See the knob of bunched up sweater up on his back? see, he isn't even sitting right, that isn't how he normally sits.. good grief. Buddy can't understand "the concept of sweaters" .
