First Attempt at a Doggie Pouch Falls Short !!! Second attempt-A perfect fit!

I have seen a lot of the new crochet baby pouches and I love them. So I decided, since my chihuahuas are my babies and they love to snuggle under make them some pouches. 

I picked out  a crochet pattern for a baby pouch, thinking I would modify it for my furbabies. I mean how hard can it be?????   right?  I added on to the sides to make it wide enough for them to curl up inside, then I  added on a few rows at the bottom, so they can hide in there.  They love that. Well, As you can see, in the pic...It came up short.  Maximo doesn't seem to mind.
 He loves the crochet blankets the best. He loves to curl up on top. He walks in a circle, about 10 times, till he has it just right and then plops down, and quickly falls a sleep.

Well, here is the finished product.  It looks like a great Big hat!  It's okay, you can giggle, I did!
 The colors are not my favorite, I was using what I had on hand for a test. I am going try out some other color combinations also. Do you have any colors you would like to see? Anyway, If it works good...I'll post the modified pattern, for others to try.

Lime green and Lemon Yellow Doggie Snuggle pouch

Second Attempt - A Perfect fit!

I added some width to the pattern, as well as, added 10 more rows to the length.  It is 22 inches long and 30 inches around. Maximo thinks it is a perfect fit for him. He is a total snuggle bunny!

Rosie wasn't so sure at first. She is always a little scared of new things. But she, like Maximo, loves to snuggle in blankets so I knew it wouldn't be long and she would also love it.

Yep, She loves it too! I knew she would.
The yarn I used is a soft baby yarn, and it it completely machine washable....YAY!

The yarn color choices are endless..I am thinking a black and white pattern with hot pink or Lime green trim, or maybe red trim, Or pink and white with black trim, ..... and there is always camo and orange......and........Like I said endless!
If you would like one for your pooch. Just email me at I don't have them listed yet.

Meet Rossita Bell - Dog Model

Meet Rossita Bell, Rosie for Short,
Dog Model of Posh Pooch Designs Dog Clothes.

When we got Rosie she was 14
weeks old and weighed 1.4 lbs.
 She was tiny and under fed ,
 but I saw a special spark in her eyes.
We were going to call Her Lily Bell,
 but when my husband saw her,
he changed her name.
Maximo and Rosie became inseparable. 
They were and are Best buds, and BFFs!  
When one is away from the house, 
the other one whines and cries until they return. 
When I took Maximo to the Vet, 
She was so unset that she wouldn't eat till he got home.

Now Both, pooches are great at modeling for 
  (They will do anything for a cookie or two) 
 But both dogs have to model at the same time. 
I cannot have one model by themselves, 
When I have tried this, the other one lays down and pouts.
  So maybe I am the one who is trained, not them.

And Even though Maximo is older, 
Rosie is in charge and get them into lots of mischief.

Selfies "they" for Selfie Day!

They say the dog is man's best friend.

"They say that the dog is man's best Friend, I don't believe that. How many of your friends have you neutered? "  (this is a quote..not sure where I got it)

Meet Maximo Taco, He is a Chihuahua, a rescued Chihuahua, a dog model for Posh Pooch Designs, and was just neutered on Friday.  I had not felt the need to have him neutered because, Rosie our other Chihuahua is spayed, and they never leave the play yard.....or so I thought.

Maximo had become an escape artist, when I went out to check on him and Rosie, Maximo was out of the yard, and visiting the neighbors pretty white Fluffy dog, who was in heat. So I felt the only responsible thing to do was get him neutered. In Maximo's defence, the White fluffy dog was out of her yard, as well.

When I picked him up from the Vet. he looked so
Then he looked at me with those eyes as if to say,
"Mommy, what have you done to me?"  So I held him in my arms all night.
Now three days later, He is feeling much better. Not back to his old self, but better, and I know I did the right thing .
