Susanna S. says, "I just placed an online order for a vest. It's the 5th I have ordered. They are great & very durable. Thought you might be interested in knowing that the mesh is so strong it may have saved our dog's life."

"I'm enclosing a photo. Soon after I took the picture, the dog sitting on my husband's lap was viciously attacked by another dog. Unprovoked, the terrier clamped down on Ricky's neck and shook him violently. I thought I was going to see him killed in front of my eyes. Thank goodness we were able to get the dog to let him go. Ricky is fine; the fabric is shredded in one spot, but the mesh wasn't damaged at all."

Amelia W. says, "Ollie and Max's first time being in their take-a-long bag! I'd say they are pretty content! Ollie fell asleep and Max is get drowsy!"

Mary S. says, "I had to send you a picture of my 2-year-old dachsie Honey and my oldest daughter. Honey looks so cute in her Heart print Snap-A-Danna!!!"

Back in early 2004, when we opened our gallery here, JennyB the beagle was one of the first dogs to be displayed.

Bandit is a real dachshund; you can see his nose poking into the bottom of the frame on JennyB's photo.

This is Buddy. He was attacked a 2 pit bulls, and his throat/chest area was still healing and tender, so he couldn't wear a regular collar. We made him a special harness that would not irritate the healing wounds.
After we went to the annual wiener dog races in Buda, TX, in April of 2007, Courtney A. sent us this picture and wrote, "We've been fans of the Hug-A-Dog for a long time and were at Buda this weekend staffing the Central Texas Dachshund Rescue booth. We decided that we must get matching new harnesses for our boys, as we had just adopted our newest dog, Fred, from CTDR and were one short. Here is a pic to show how happy they are to wear them! Thor (Dr. Thorester Hurley Funkenstein) is the big standard black and tan. He is 3 and was adopted from CTDR in 2006. Fred (Baron Friedrich von Ballhopper) is the red dapple in the middle and he is 6. Napoleon (Napoleon Dynamite) is the other black and tan in the black/orange harness. He is 2 years old."

As for the longhairs, the black and tan is Polly, who is mother to the silver dapple, Solo. Jean is from Oldham, in the north of England, near Manchester. These photos were taken on holiday in Scotland.

Some say that Italian Greyhounds are hard to fit, but we love to work with them, especially if there are as good-looking as Jada here. Jada's mom says the new harness fits just fine.
Displaying their good-dogs-secured-in-the-car behavior are, from top to bottom, Roxie, Addison and Bean.

With his new all-black harness with the extra D-ring, Clancy feels just like a biker dude. His folks assure us that the closest he comes to a hog is when they let him have a piece of bacon.

Every now and then, we have to remind you that Hug-A-Dog harnesses are for big dogs, too. Here to help us with that chore are Summa-Thyme the Rottskey (Rottweiller-Huskey mix) in the blue harness and Valley-Girl the Greyweiller (Greyhound-Rottweiller mix) in the purple harness.

Won't we look special walking down the beach together! "

Nonetheless, his mom Jean and his dad Richard love him dearly.

Dick and Doof are the constant companions of Betsy Barca.

Brandy and Amy live in Homestead, Florida. Amy (on the bottom) had her picture taken just three days after she was spayed, and it looks like she came through the surgery with flying colors.

This is Lyly. Reports her mom, Sandra, "I adopted her just one year ago, at age 6. She had been with one family her entire life from birth. The family was Vietnamese, and I found out just recently that "ly" is a Vietnamese noun for "millimeter; or little bit" which is just adorable, as she is a miniature! Hence, Lyly (which we Americanized to Lily in pronunciation)."
On the left is Willie Mac (2½) and on the right is Max (1). They are enjoying the shade and modeling their new harnesses before their daily walk. Thanks to Steve and Jackie Williams of Indianapolis, IN, for the picture.

What are the odds of getting pictures of dachshunds named Lucy coming from Florida within days of each other? Well, it happened. Here you see Mandy, Lucy and Bella.

People actually slowed their cars on a busy road to look at these 3 beauties walking so proud in their new outfits."

Lucy hails from Masillon, Ohio, near Dachshund Delights Headquarters. This photo, however, was taken in the car as she headed for her winter vacation in Florida. She's missing all the snow and all the cold and all the fun.
Mary and Martha come from 2 Dogs Long, as do so many fine dogs. Says their Mom, Tina, "They love their new harnesses! Mary is petite and lights up when I put it on her, I just know she was a fashion queen in another life! Martha is a rebel and the hot flames fit her perfectly."

Ruthanne Williams writes: "We bought a Hug-A-Dog harness from you almost a year and a half ago, and it is still going strong.  Our Sammy wears it on two ½ hour walks every weekday plus many strenuous hikes on weekends!  It gives me such peace of mind to know that even if Sammy lunges at the occasional squirrel or bicyclist, he no longer yanks his little neck. Other dog moms often ask me about Sammy's harness and I always refer them to your web site.  I believe he is calmer when he wears the harness as well.  Perhaps he finds it comforting. I have attached a photo of Sammy wearing his harness and kissing his Daddy, David Roussel.  I bet Sammy is saying, "Thank you Daddy for taking such good care of me!"

 Thanks, Ruthanne.

Here are Archie (black and tan) and Katie in Thermapolis, Wyoming, on the vacation trip they took to South Dakota with their mom, Veronika. Katie is wearing big brother Archie's handa-me-down first harness, since it was still good. Veronika tells us that she gives our Web address to the many people who ask about the harnesses. Thank you, Veronika.
