Are You Ready For Our 2015 Ugly Christmas Sweater Party Fundraiser?
Tis’ The Season…To Dress Up Your Dog In Ugly Christmas Sweaters.
Christmas is right around the corner. It’s a time to treasure family and friends, to celebrate and to give back. Nothing says Christmas quite like dressing up for parties and holiday photos so I picked up a few Ugly Christmas Sweaters for Kilo the Pug. He is all ready to rock an Ugly Christmas Sweater Party LOL.
An Ugly Sweater used to be just that. The incredibly ugly, tacky seasonal sweater some relative made for you and expected you to wear at the family gathering.
Now they are the rage and we think they are too cute (the opposite of ugly). There are “Ugly Christmas Sweater” Parties and Ugly Christmas Sweaters for Dogs. There may be some pooches out there that still growl at these Holiday fashion choices, but Kilo says “fine..as long as there are treats” of course. His are very comfy and oh so stylish.
Thanks to everyone who shared a photo or let us take one at a recent event. We will donate $50 to Kilo’s rescue tomorrow.

Shopping for Ugly Christmas Sweaters for Dogs
Haven’t picked up your dog’s Ugly Christmas Sweater yet?
We were inspired by our friends at DogTipper who recently posted about a great auction celebrating funny holiday sweaters and supporting dogs in need. Project Runway stars teamed up with UglyChristmasSweater.com for an auction running December 7th through December 18th. Fans and dog lovers can bid on the festive dog apparel with all proceeds benefiting Leave No Paws Behind, an all breed, all foster California-based non-profit that saves the lives of the most at-risk dogs– the elderly, the terminally ill and pets with special needs. What a fun way to support a great cause.

We loved their booths at the Winter Woofstock and Fall Canadian Pet Expo.
The bells on the wreath add just the perfect touch to this sweater.
