Summer may still be in full swing but our fashion forward four-legged companions are already looking for the next big trend in fall and winter wear. Sweaters are a great way to keep your dog warm and stylish during the colder months ahead, and this season there is one look that is a must.

Watch these lovely dogs with their fashion protective clothing…..

2018 will mark the twenty-year anniversary of the cult classic, The Big Lebowski. Some of us may have never seen the movie or even forgot the plot, but despite that, the iconic Pendleton sweater worn by the Dude is recognized by most people proving this cult classic is still just as culturally relevant today as it was in 1998.

How fortunate are we that Pendleton still makes this sweater, called the Westerly? So lucky are we that we can still buy the classic cardigan for ourselves and our four-legged little Dudes.

Granted, the size only goes up from a toy breed to a medium-sized dog weighing up to 40 pounds. My dog Sam, who isn’t the right coloring and is a little on the heavier side to be a little Dude would not tolerate this cardigan, but maybe I can get one of my cats in it a small size because I want it.

The little Dude Pendleton Westerly cardigan is a must have, especially if you already dress your pooch in sweaters to protect him from the elements.

Smaller dogs often need that extra protection, and the best part about owning this sweater is it can easily double as a Halloween costume come October. Just grab some doggy sunglasses and a little mousey brown, shaggy hair piece and your little Dude is all set, man.

Get ready to introduce your pooch as “his dudeness, duder, or el dudornio.” They will all fit this look, and most people will appreciate the reference. And even if you meet people who are not in the know about the Pendleton Westerly cardigan, it’s still a rustic look to sport around town and will grab attention.
