This harness was made with loving care! After I purchased another listed harness- I had second thoughts because Penelope is a big puller! Loyce made this special sweater harness for her instead and it is perfect!!! Thanks for your thoughtful consideration of my concerns and for the precious harness you made! Penelope is ready for the town!!!

Nic-Nac Paddywack was born from the idea of sharing my love for small dogs and little girls.

In December 2006 my daughters were about to relocate to a different state; so in their belief that I would be alone and needed a companion, one cold winter night just before they were about to leave, I opened the door to my youngest daughter with a bundle hidden beneath her hooded sweatshirt... I said to her, "that had better not be a puppy," but alas as she slowly unzipped the sweatshirt, out peering at me were the little crystal clear, marblelike, chestnut brown eyes and a tiny chocolate nose. The tiny marble eyes immediately said, "I'm yours!" ... as my daughter continued to unzip the shirt, there shivering in the cold winter's night was a tiny 1-1/2 pound puppy. Although I was taken aback , I was also immediately smitten by this itty-bitty ball of shivering fur. I took him and wrapped him in a small blanket (one I'd crocheted sometime in the past}, and that became his "go to blanky." After days of searching the stores I was unsuccessful in finding doggy clothing to fit such a tiny dog, so I took the arm of a child's long-sleeved shirt, cut it and added a slit on either side and Voila!!, this was he beginning of my "small dog shirts." After receiving many compliments and requests about where I found the tiny turtleneck sweaters for my "Charlie", I decided to start making them from my stockpile of fabric, sweatshirts and huge supply of stored yarns. One day during a Skype session with my eldest daughter, she suggested I should try to sell the sweaters on Etsy (my first time hearing of the site)... It took about a year or so (maybe more), but after I had a large supply of tiny sweaters that Charlie had outgrown, I decided to take the leap and within a few weeks the Nic-Nac Paddwack Etsy Shop was started; at that time it only showed items exclusive for "...your small dog... ."

Since then both daughters have had baby girls and, of course, I started crocheting and sewing for those little ones, and added items for little girls to the shop.

Also, being one who loves to crochet during my quiet, meditative periods, I would make hats, scarves, shrugs, jewelry, etc. and wear them to work, shopping, everywhere; these requests prompted me to also added such items to my Etsy site. Well, in a nutshell that's my story... and I'm sticking to it :-).

Nic-Nac Paddywack would like to take this opportunity to thank you for helping us to celebrate the growing addition of the "small dog" to the American family. We pamper them, take them with us wherever we go, buy them special treats to eat, surprise them with something new on special occasions and we even buy them holiday presents. Why not, for they are not just our pets they have become bon-a-fide members of the new American family.

My 4 year old ChiPoo (Chihuahua-Poodle mix) , Charlie, is one of this growing group of lovable pooches. He goes with me everywhere and LOVES to wear his simple pullover sweaters... They are easy to wear and simple to care for, with just a gentle wash in cool water and a tumble dry. Why shouldn't your pooch be as well dressed as the rest of the family?

Most of our sweaters are made of soft acrylic and/or polyester yarns that do not require special handling. However we do have some sweaters that are made of mohair, cotton, and silk (by special request). We hope that you and your pooch will enjoy our sweaters.
