    Dear Aunt Louise,

    It's your fave nephew Phoenix, in Texas. The weather has been so screwy lately that mom-lady had to go to the little boys section in Wal-Mart to find me a coat to fit, so I could stay warm. it fits but it isn't the same as a nicely hand knitted sweater from my fave Aunt. :D Mom-lady didn't want to take me on vacation, because we were going to the mountains and she was afraid I'd be cold, so I had to wear the goofy jacket again. I would be so happy to get a sweater from you. I hope you are well and your fave nephew Phoenix misses you and I was wondering when I could come visit and give you lots of slobbery kisses. And lay on your feet to keep them warm. :D

    Much Love,

    p.s. I am attaching apic of myself in the goofy jacket that mom-lady put me in. :D

    Dear Aunt Louise,
    It's your niece Molly here! I know it's doesn't snow here in San Francisco
    but it gets very foggy and windy and it's very cold in the morning when
    we go walking before sunrise! Plus, mom is a sucky knitter and only manages
    to knit scarves but nothing special for me :(

    I know I'm not always very lady-like with
    my clothes

    But I promise that if you knit me a sweater,
    I won't wear it when I'm climbing trees
    so it doesn't get snagged

    And I won't wear it during swimming lessons

    And I won't wear it while playing in dirt with my
    cousin Livia (she belongs to BF's aunt)

    But I will wear it special occasions like when we
    go to Union Square

    And when we go on paved trails where I have to be
    a good girl and not tear up rehabilitating plant life

    Dear Aunt Louise,

    Hello from your favorite nephew, Howie! The weather has been very screwy lately in Michigan...there was one week where we got dumped on with 8 inches of snow, and then a few days later is was 40 degrees! I was born in May, so all of this snow stuff is not very fun for me! Mom and Dad often find me laying in front of the heater vents to keep warm, and I shiver if the house is colder than 70 degrees! Mom bought me a coat to out in, which keeps me nice and warm, but a nice comfy sweater from you would be oh so nice to cuddle in while I'm inside the house.

    Here are some pictures of me!
    This is me laying on my bed in front of my favorite heater vent, trying to stay warm! Mom will usually cuddle with me on the couch with lots of blankets, bud Dad doesn't like me on the furniture, so we can only cuddle when he's not home (shhh!). They used to have the Christmas tree in this corner, and I used to have to crawl under the tree to get to the vent! But I was careful not to knock it over.

    This is the blanket mom got for me to stay warm in. This is nice for when we go out, but definitely not good for lounging around the house! It was a bit big when we got it, but I've grown since then, and it fits better now.

    I can't wait to hear from you, and I hope you are staying warm in all of this crazy weather!

    Much love and lots of licks,

    Hi Auntie, Its BuddyBuster, I heard you were making a sweater for someone? Could it possibly be for me? Its quite cold here in michigan. Is it warm where you are? Ive been working on this bone for about 2 days santa shoved it in this new kong toy. I dont know what he was thinking like i cant get it out!LOL:) well i asked santa for a sweater for christmas but he couldnt find one that was my size because yah know i am pretty muscular. Soooo if that sweater is an extra large or yah know a bigger size than you expected it to be I would greatly appreciate the sweater.

    Well gotta go love yah!


    P.S Remember Auntie I am your favorite nephew!

    Dear Aunt Louise,

    It's your niece, Emily! It's been awhile since we've last spoke but, I really miss you!
    I heard that you were making me a new sweater! Thanks! I really need a new one. It gets really cold in the Indiana winters. I don't have all that extra fur that my Alaskan Malamute brother has. Two weeks ago, it was in the negatives and my other aunt wouldn't let me and my brother eat our christmas bones in the house. What a mean lady!!!! I was outside shivering! My brother just laughed at me! Can you believe that? I had to hurry eating my bone so I didn't freeze!

    Do you remember how you always told me that I was your favorite niece? I sure do! I can't wait til we meet again! Maybe if you make me a sweater, I'll wear it for you!

    I love you so much!

    Your most favorite niece,

    Dear Aunt Louise,
    This is your favorite nephew wondering where my sweater is. It has been snowing a lot here in Colorado and I don't have a sweater. It is so chilly outside and when I go out to potty I freeze.

    My mommy has tried to keep me warm but I would pee on this hoodie if I went outside in it.

    I really need a new sweater, please help a nephew out.

    Your Favorite Nephew,

    Ps. I will be waiting here in the snow.

    Dearest Aunt Louise,

    Thanks for those "Ruger Is The Best Nephew" cookies! They were awesome! And boy did I get excited when your letter said you were working on my very own sweater! After a looong day playing in the snow and doing chores, I realized how chilly I get!

    Boy, a sweater would be nice... it's windy up here!

    The only thing cuter than me right now? Would be me in a sweater!

    Will it match my booties?

    Thanks so much Aunt Louise.. I'll keep an eye out for the mailman to bring my new sweater!

    Hello, Aunt Louise!

    I am really looking forward to the sweater that you have been knitting for me.

    I want to go play outside, but it is too cold.

    I tried laying by the fireplace to keep warm, but it was not lit.

    I know that I will be so warm and comfortable in the sweater that you have made. I will be patiently waiting for it to arrive.

    I can not thank you enough for all of the love that you give. You are the bestest aunt ever!

    Love always,

    Dear Aunt Louise..:wave3:..I hope you're keeping well,

    I have to say that I was thrilled to hear that you were knitting a sweater because god knows I sure could use one right now with all this deep snow!. I thought I'd jog your memory and remind you why you should send it to me. :)

    As you may have forgotten...I have little to no fur on my under belly and I'm very self conscience of this. As I live in a mostly rainy place I take full advantage of every single ray of sunshine tanning... :sonn_u11: ...so most of the year people don't notice the lack of fur.

    This is me keeping up the appearence of having fur....as you can see I do a pretty darn good job of it! :)



    But unfortunately it doesn't last and this is what happens when the tan wears off...:eek:...I become so obviously "NEKKID"!!!!


    We've had a tremdous amount of snow this year and being only 14" tall your sweater would be of a great asset in keeping me very warm. Aunt Louise I really hope you will take my hairless plight into consideration and "PLEASE" send your beautiful sweater to me. :D

    Love Hobbs xx

    HEEEEEEY Auntie Louise!!

    A little birdie told me you forgot you were knitting that purty sweater for me?


    How could you forget that, silly! It's sooo cold up here in Alaska, my mommy says it was minus 11 this morning. Whatever that means! The snow is real deep here and is cold on my belly when I go potty.


    and then when we come inside, my mommies put weird, not warm, things on me when i lay by the warm thing


    My two mommies (i love them) won't let me go outside and play very long so we sit inside and dream about it...


    I hope you remember who you were knitting that warm sweater for, i lub you!

    Dear Aunt Louise,
    Its the best niece an auntie could ask for, me, Charlemagne!
    How are you? Im doing good. I just got my CGC certificate in the mail last week! My dad put it the fridge for now, but has been keeping an eye out for a nice frame for it. You should have seen it here in Portland Christmas week we had a storm that broke 40 year records! I loved it! My dad got to stay home from work for almost a week! when we went to the dog park a few blocks away i would run full speed with my mouth wide open to eat as much snow as i could! When it iced over i slipped a bunch, but i was very good about not pulling on the leash so my dad wouldnt slip. I am not only the best neice, but the best daughter too! anyways look how my dad would dress me when we would be out in the snow for a long time... he has no fashion sense... [​IMG]

    Dear Auntie Louise,

    I hear there is a sweater that needs a good home. Well, I think I could give it a really good home, just like my mom gave me. I've grown back most of the hair I was missing when she got me,



    but I still have a really short coat and it gets COLD when I go out to potty or hiking. Last time I was out I was shivering like crazy cause I have no body fat. Mom keeps trying to fatten me up by I don't want to be one of those lazy squishy dogs, I'm not sure what an-o-rexic means but that is what she calls me every time I refuse to finish all my kibble. I thought my new name was Pax...





    So I would really like a coat of my own that I don't have to share with my sister (she gets EVERYTHING)


    I promise if I get a coat I will continue to work hard to be a good boy and do everything mommy asks



    Even when I think it's really boring


    Love your fav nephew,

    Dear Aunt Louise,
    Hi, this is your all time freezing niece Nikki. I just want to ask if you could please make me a sweater. I know how great you are at these things and big butt Rocky keeps stealing my blanket he is such a bully head. I know your really busy and all but I am freezing my tail off not to mention how much the wind blows up my back when I go potty. I would really love a bright pink one that way I do not have to share with Rocky or Kane them two boys have all kinds of stuff, mom lady says dad likes the boys best, but I am her favorite. Well I must go, I have to find where those two bone heads hide my new toy...I love you Aunt Louise and I am sending you a pic of me waving hello........

    Miss you bunches .....Nikki your freezing niece

    Dear Aunt Loiuse,
    It's me Gummy Bear. You probably don't remember me. I am not a Pitty but I am a Terrier and I love my Pibble friends. Mommy showed me the pictures of all the niece's and nephew's of yours, they sure are beautiful! I wish I could be as big as them but I am getting old, 10 years old now and I was abused and starved for 8 years before my Mommy found out about me and adopted me after I was rescued from a very, very bad place. The animals, I mean humans, who had me would beat me all the time. They even kicked out my front bottome and top teeth which is why my name is now Gummy Bear, lol. Anyway, it is really, really cold here in Virginia and when I go outside I have to wear a sweater or a hoody because I get soooo cold and if I get too cold I get sick. Most of the coats that Mommy bought are now too big cuz I keep losing weight. She tells me it is because I am getting so old. I know that all your niece's and nephew's are very beautiful and deserving but I thought that maybe, just maybe you were knitting the beautiful sweater for me???? If not, that is okay too because any of the dogs are worthy of getting this special sweater. I won't be hurt or feel left out because my Mommy loves me very much and helps me to forget the bad times in my life before I found out that someone really does love me. Her love keeps me warm so if I am not to get the sweater, it is okay! I wish everyone good luck and just know that whomever gets this very special sweater will be blessed. After all, it was made with love by Aunt Louise! Everyone needs an Aunt Loiuse in their life!
    Here is my picture when I was rescued from a terrible place.

    And here is what I look like today.

    So thank you for knitting such a fine sweater for a very lucky dog. And...thank you for caring about all of us.

    Gummy Bear.

    Dear Long lost Aunt Louise,

    This is your long lost niece, Rain. I'm so happy I've found you at last. Now I can hit you up for stuff, like that sweater. As you can see, I'm cold. My person puts me in her people-jacket, but it doesn't fit and the look on my face tells her I'm not really thrilled. I hope she gets the message.

    And, it seems I've got something funny going on with losing my hair so I'm off to the vet's tomorrow. To add to my discomfort, the cat I moved in with here at my new home keeps stealing my nice warm bed. See?
