The best thing about having a pet is that you don’t have to buy them clothes. Yet I found great joy in buying clothes for my pets. After all, who cannot resist buying tiny clothes and dressing up your pet?
I dress up my pet in many ways such as using old handkerchiefs as bandanas, buying a differently designed collar, and buying clothes made for my dog. Since I own a dachshund, its unique body type can make buying clothes a little harder.
For now, the dachshund clothes that I have seen are sweaters or shirts just made a little longer than usual. It makes me sad that there’s little improvement in the kinds of clothes that my pet can wear. This is why I want to learn how to sew clothes properly for my dog.
I’ve created designs which are similar to dog fashion that I see. Even with their short legs, I still think that clothes that make the dog look like they’re standing is fit for my dachshund. Dresses would also look cute on them because their long and short haired bodies can make the end of the dress more prominent.
I think that dressing up my dog is one way of setting him apart from other dogs. While my dog will most likely have a physical look-a-like, its clothes add personality that will make it different from others.
Accessories are also part of clothing. I choose not to put any ear accessories or bling on my pet because for one, his ears aren’t made to stand out unlike other breeds, and second I might unintentionally hurt my dog.
I want to be one of those people that “match” with their dogs. Our fashion sense will be simple and casual, with one thing standing out to make us look different from others. For my dog, I will make sure that its collar will always stand out.
