I view it like how mom's dress their children. I might fake fun of you and your dog, but it's all your choice. Lol. That being said I can't wait to dress batman up as...batman for Halloween this year! Already found the costume. :)

I think a little sweater is really good for thin-skinned breeds (chihuahua, whippet, italian greyhound...) in the winter. I think if you dress your dog up, you should always remember that your dog is a dog, not a furry little person, and to stop if the dog is very uncomfortable.

No way! I'd never, EVER dress my dog up, it's SOOO dumb! I can't believe anyone would do such a thing!

Honestly? If the dog has no problem with it, I fail to see how it's anyone business, and there are far more important things to worry about than whether an obviously well loved and care for dog is wearing a cute sweater or dress.

While I do think it's harmless fun, and I'm all for dressing up for fun occasions, one of my neighbors has a little Westie who wears a different dress every day, and I think that's just plain weird. But whatever.

I dress Hitch in jackets and blankets when he feels too cold. But I don't dress him up other than that. (maybe halloween also)

The only reason that I don't dress him up is because he doesn't look like a dog that I should dress up. If I had a smaller dog I might.

I don't see the point in costumes and dresses on an everyday basis, but I see no harm in it either.

My dogs only wear functional clothing, but I do tend to get the cute stuff when choosing new clothes. If I need a knitted sweater, why not get the one that looks like winnie the pooh?

Aidan likes wearing his coat and sweaters. He refuses to go out in heavy rain unless he has his waterproof coat on, in fact. This winter, he will wear boots and a hat, too. I expect last winter to have been a lovely exception to the two very snowy winters we've had here.
