My grand dogs are UT fans

 I thought you might enjoy seeing my grand dogs (I have 2 others now, but I don't have their photos).  I made these University of Tennessee jackets for them a year or so ago.  I wove orange and white ribbon together to make "fabric" and went from there.  The dog with the baby is Boomer.    He was born on the 4th of July, but his name really fits him.  He is the funniest dog I've ever been around.  His "sister" Emory sure does have fun with him.  
The Pekinese belonged to another daughter.  She and her husband got him very shortly after they were married 10 1/2 years ago, so she, Gizmo, was very much a part of the family and very loved.  All three of my daughter's little girls loved her so much.  She died a year or so ago.  It was very sad.  I'm glad I have this photo of her.  Now, my daughter's family has a new dog, Patches, that I will need to sew for soon.  
I have made my other grand dog, Sissy,  the same jacket, and need to get her photo, too.

Oh my goodness, they are adorable. I love the way you call them granddogs. My mother always referred to my cat and dogs and her grandcat and granddogs. Unfortunately, my dogs won't let me dress them up. They give me these sad looks at just lay there if I try to put clothes on them.
