When I first got Mia, she could sit in the palm of my hand. At night she would cuddle in her blanket, trying to stay out of the cold. As a toy breed, not even the XS dog sweaters would fit her. Here is a inexpensive way to recycle old socks for small dogs or puppies. Enjoy!

    I have made so many of these. my chiweenie loves them...I used men's old hunting socks and cut the top off and use the toe part of the sock as a little hat.
