When we got Zeke last week, we quickly discovered that he doesn't like going out early in the morning. The grass is wet with dew, and it is cold --- our temps have been around 40 degrees overnight. So when I set him down in the grass, he makes a beeline for the sidewalk and sits there shivering. When Mom heard that, she immediately decided that he needed a sweater to keep him warm on his morning outings. Above is Zeke modelling his new puppy sweater. (And you thought Jim and I were the only ones spoiling him!?!?!)
P.S. Yes, that is a leaf in his mouth. So far it is the only thing in the yard smaller than him, so he chases them, pounces on them, and parades around with them in his mouth like he has really caught a prize!
