Toronto dog sweaters

Toronto shop makes neighbourhood dog sweaters

If you love your neighbourhood so much that a toque is just not enough, or you've decided those are soo last winter, two Toronto clothing designers are letting you show off your neighbourhood pride in the most meta way thus far: accessorizing your most loveable accessory, your pup.

The Parsons Design grads behind the Higgins Would Be Proud shop and the doggie Stomping Grounds collection are inspired by their 10 year old pug Higgins, and they're giving back: ElderDog charity receives 10% of every purchase, meaning you're helping both aging dogs and aging dog owners when you're taking your Queen West Bitch out for a sprinkle.

Warning, many Toronto dog owners will be let down by the shortage of hoods represented here, but if your Scarborough pooch loves to mingle at the Trinity Dog Bowl, maybe a compromise can be reached. For me the bigger issue is the quips - where's "Too presh for King West," "Ossington Fire Hydrant Early Marker," Leslieville/The Junction's "Stroller Rider or Die," "This Yorkville Pup's Nose is Higher Than Yours," and something about starting from the bottom in Forest Hill...help me out here.

Will you buy your pup a neighbourhood sweater, or is your miniature schnauzer holding out for "Drake you ho this is all your fault?" Let us know in the comments.
