I have a thing for dogs in hats. The whole outfit ensemble can prove a bit sad to me as the dog often wants no part of it, but a hat...that's just fun. Even if they get a little annoyed, it's kinda worth it. Above is the Oh Christmas Tree hat, hand crocheted with kelly green yarn and trimmed with red and white crocheted Christmas balls.
Bernadette and Julie, a mother and daughter team from Sykesville, Maryland have lovingly created these hats for pooches of all sizes but the inspiration comes from their three pugs; Jellybean, Pickles and Pumpkin. Pickles has grabbed the limelight from her siblings however. As Bernadette shares, "Pickles loves to model. Jellybean and Pumpkin like to stay behind the scenes." Find the Little Devil hat here and the Dog Groom wedding hat here.
It's kinda hard not to love your dog infinitely when they put on the Church Mouse hat. If you prefer something a little more subdued, I like the neck warmer which can be adorned with a flower of your choice.
I do believe I've saved the best for last. Pickles strikes a pose in the fabulous Carmen Miranda ensemble, which includes an apple, orange, banana, cherries and grapes. It's hard to top this ...yet in the new year, Bernadette and Julie will venture into the not so charted territory of cat hats. I look forward to sharing their feline creations that will amaze me in the sheer fact the cats keep them on long enough for a photograph. Thanks for sharing your wonderful dog hats Bernadette and Julie. To see all of their creations, which would make an excellent holiday gift, just click here.
