for the walter fan club

This is the "I've just been bathed, aren't I handsome" pose.


And yes, he's wearing his fleece jumper - it drys him out super-quick and saves the house getting soaked. This is his second one. He ate the first (just like those gloves).

I never ever thought I'd be the sort of person who'd put a jumper on their dog.......

Harry loves when I bring the dirty washing down to sort and wash because his favourite 'game' is to run off with either dirty knickers or socks....if I don't swap them for a biscuit he then rips them to shreds.
Touch wood that is all he eats that is forbodden.
Cashmere gloves or fleece would be out of his range.
Why did Walter need a bath? Any special disgusting reason or just general smell?

Hey, as long as you're not wearing a matching jumper, I think you can get away with it!

He looks very proud of himself. What a fine fellow he is!

I love his fluffy bath fur! I can't believe that you blamed Walter for eating the fleece and gloves! His little face says 'who me?' He is a wonderful big cuddly teddy bear.x

Bless!! I looked up those coats. THey are cool! We need one for Marley so that'll be what I get for him. Thanks for the tip! xx

Gina said...

He is so handsome and fluffy! I've never seen fleece jumpers for dogs before... what a good idea for after a bath.

Ali said...

Just don't give in to nail polish! Our neighbours poodle has purple claws - I kid you not.

I love Walter!
He looks gorgeous, all damp and fluffy! Aren't retrievers the most delightful of dogs? My sister's family have a darker retriever and a black labrador - two very excitable bouncy boys!
The jumper sounds like a great idea.

He's a very handsome boy indeed.

Aw what a darling - but eating his own jumper? Was he okay afterwards?! xxx

Award for you on my blog later today!

Gorgeous ! We have Dillon and he needs a jumper just like that .... !

Diane said...

One of my friends has a dog who eats socks and pants from the wash basket - which is bad enough, but very embarrasing when it comes out the other end and people are watching!!! I love Walter - he's the best looking dog EVER!!!

Sign me up for the Walter fan club - he looks pretty adorable and quite incapable of being naughty.

we went for a lovely walk on sunday and a dog just like walter came bounding up to us like a lovely big creamy teddy bear I was dying for a cuddle.....

this is my patch said...

I'd love to become a member! Walter has such character in his face, and must be such fun to have around. What a handsome jumper/glove eating fellow he is! This photo is most definitely one for a frame. x

As far as the jumper goes - needs must!

The White Bench said...

Oh what a handsome boy!!!! Love him!
Please come and meet my girl if you have some spare time.
Have a great Sunday,
Monica.

He does look quite handsome. And my mum's greyhound has fleece pajamas. Otherwise he gets terribly cold at night (and we're not dressing-up-the-dog people either). K x
