Remember these??

Do you remember this ...

AND this ....

Well they both grew ..... very, very, big. In fact they are both humungous.  Mum didn't know where to stop on the coat.  She must think I'm an elephant or something.  Well not quite but she certainly thinks I'm greyhound size.  She just kept knitting and knitting. It does keep me warm and there's sure room for expansion.  Maybe she'll feed me lots of ice-cream just so I fit into it better.  I sure hope so.

Looks ok, aye?
As you can see I just LOVE wearing it ..... not!!!!

Crikey .... it's like a furnace in here. 
And as for Herbie ..... oh my he's like a weed. He just keeps growing and growing. He weighs almost as much as me now.  AND he's famous. He does photo shoots for an advertising agency. Yes ..... Herbie!!  Everyone says he's very well behaved.  Could've fooled me.  You should see him here. He's out of control.  He's all over me like a rash.  He hangs off me.  I can't stand it. Mum says he LOVES me.  Fair dinkum ..... if that's love you can keep it.  

Look .... he's as long as Jo, almost.  

Mr Perfect at his photo shoot.  Who's he think he's fooling?  Not me that's for sure.  

Hmmmmmph!   Butter wouldn't melt in that mouth, aye??

Wanna run .... Love, Charlie.

    OMD Herbie sure is a heart-melter... but you have my vote every time Charlie mate!!! ...and just for the record - I LOVE you in red &*> Hugs and wags, YAM-aunty xxx

  2. Charlie, you are not a wee bit jealous of Herbie's fame? Your onesie? Well, I hope it is warm as it is not a fashion statement.

  3. Oh look at Herbie and Jo, what a splendid pair they make.
    As for that red sweater, well yes Charlie it's quite, er, generously sized. Bring on the ice cream, I say.
    Toodle pip!

  4. Look at Herbie! He's huge!! Poor Charlie. You'll always be my favorite.

    Miss Ginger feels the same way about her little brother George. He's huge too. Ginger has to remind him who's boss almost daily!

  5. Herbie sure is growing, like you sweater, very nice, should keep you pretty warm in the cold weather

  6. Wait until it gets REALLY cold and you will love your new coat, Charlie. You look great in red!
    Herbie is a handsome lad!

  7. We stay in the warm weather so at least we don't have to wear a sweater. But Rocky Joe likes the sweater he came with. He didn't have much fur so his sweater was a good thing, but now he's plumped out and got beautiful fur because Mom and Dad take such good care of us. Herbie really is cute but you're still my love. And Rocky Joe doesn't understand personal space either. He's always sitting on me of laying right up against me. Feels kind of good sometimes though.


  8. OMD Herbie is HUGE!!!!!
    You'll be very pleased to have that jumper when it gets REALLY cold Charlie….I mean if it snows!
    Loves and licky kisses

  9. Heeeeeeeey Charlie my matey! Oh how I have missed you. Well good buddy you know I love that red coat and it versatile w a turtleneck or a hoodie!
    WTG Herbie! I guess when he is w you he can 'let his fur down' and be a dog.
    I agree w your mum Herbie loves you.
    Hugs Madi your bffff

  10. Save that sweater for when you come to visit me in winter! It'll be great for romping in the snow!

  11. Charlie, you look very striking in your beautiful coat. Better you than us though. We don't like clothes:) We are sure it keeps you warm in the cooler weather there. As for Herbie, he sure is a handsome boy and BIG!!!

  12. Looks like Herbie is sure playing up to the camera, eh? Did you tell your mum it's hard to run fast when wearing clothes?

    Your Pals,

    Murphy & Stanley

  13. We think your coat looks very stylish on you Charlie - and keeps the hiney warm too!
    Mr Bailey, Hazel & Mabel

  14. SHE once knitted a woolly jumper for camping. When finished, it only needed a few poles and 2 people could have slept in it! At least your jumper will keep your nether regions warm.

    Herbie is quite the debonair little man...when the camera is on him, hey.

  15. Charley you look lovely in red. Knitting is on my bucket list of things to learn.
    Coffee is on

  16. Oh charlie, red is your color!! You look very spiffy!!

  17. Charlie while you look really swell in that beautiful red coat, maybe Herbie would like to have it?? Just saying. Red and dark brown go well together too, you know! And since he is becoming a furmouse lad, well, he just needs a wardrobe! Yup...

    And maybe you need to tell Herbie that dogs should just romp...and chase and suchlike, BOL!!!

    You know what? Petcretary knows how to knit and crochet and even sew...but um...she has not even thought about making me any wardrobe items...likely a good thing, BOL, BOL!!!

  18. Your new coat is a bit... ehm... biggish. But you look really good in it!! And it nearly being winter where you live, you might learn to love it.

    Mara from Norway

  19. I just snuck in after Mara, so she wouldn't see: the coat is not good. It's red for starters and waaaaay too big. What was your two-legger thinking? And why do they always try to get us into stuff? Just because they get cold. They are all a bunch of sissies!

    As for that other dog: those eyes are too blue and bright. Not to be trusted at all. Jus' sayin'...

    Miss Oswin from Norway

  20. You are a fantasic model. Your mom is going to need more material to make one for Herbie

  21. Am I detecting a shade of green in the air, Charlie! Green doesn't suit you, me lad!!

    Good to have you back, though :)

  22. Woof, Charlie! We were just ovfur at Harri's Dogster page and left him a remembrance fur his Rainbow Bridge Day. Pawlease let your mommy know we still think of him. Crikey, we miss you ovfur there! I know, we should be here more often. But now, who is this Herbie fellow??!!

  23. Oh, my! Herbie is huge! Mom says you are the most adorable reluctant model!

  24. Oh Hershey ... we've missed you, mate! AND Winkie. Your comment brought more than one tear to Mum's eyes. We too think of you often and we're so pleased to see you on Facebook. We thought Dogster had disappeared altogether but we will pop in if we still can. Herbie is a pest but I love him ... kind of!!! Our love to you all! ��

  25. Thank for your very good article! i always enjoy & read the post you are sharing!
