Couple's Beloved Dogs Made Into Sweaters

After they lost their beloved dogs, Beth and Brian Willis of Newcastle, England, found a unique way to keep their beloved pets close to their hearts: by turning their fur into sweaters!

After seeing a picture of Princess Diana wearing a dog fur stole at Crufts, they collected thousands of dog hairs from brushes and carpets.

The pair said the his and hers dog memorials were "warm and waterproof".

Mr Willis, who worked for Pickfords Removals for 27 years, wears his doggy jumper into town every Saturday to do the weekly shop.

The 73-year-old said: "They are extremely warm and pretty much waterproof. I've always got a sweat on by the time I get from the bus to the shops."

Great, just friggin great!
These people may have done this out of love, but guaranteed there will be other people who read this and
start a new canine branch of the fur industry. I agree with Michelle on this one.

When your dog or cat turns up missing, remember, I told you so.
When you see idiots who give away dogs and cats for free.
You can know that they are no longer being snatched up and sold for medical testing. No, they will be snatched up by the local thugs and made into trim for some fake designer. When you see it, remember I told you so.
When our great country misunderstands what this crazy old couple in England did. We will be reduced to the mentality of China. God forbid, we will not take the next step to having them show up on our dinner plates.
God Help our Nation and keep our children and animals safe from those who will do them harm because of this.

Personally,I think its disgusting,that Americans,would think of wearing their dogs fur alive or dead.Honestly its a inhumane idea,some people need to watch vidoes of cats and dogs in China being skinned alive for their fur,and see them being tortured.Dead or alive have respect for your animal,cause if they were still alive,they wouldn't be enjoying it.
