BARKING MAD!!!!!!!!!

HERE BOY!!! Dog Jumpers - hot for parks in 2008...Dogs are shitting themselves.

Many animal lovers have their pets stuffed when the creatures pass away but one couple had a rather more novel idea – turning their dogs' hair into his 'n' hers jumpers.

Beth and Brian Willis combed their carpets for dog hair and then had it spun into yarn, which Mrs Willis knitted into winter warmers.

Mr Willis wears his doggy jumper every weekend into town to do the shopping. 'They are extremely warm and pretty much waterproof,' he said. 'Unless it is banging it down, it is fine.

I've always got a sweat on by the time I get from the bus to the shops,' the 73-year-old retired removals worker added.

Mrs Willis, a retired St John Ambulance telephonist, said she got the idea after seeing a picture of Princess Diana wearing dog fur at Crufts.

She first used the hair of their white Samoyed, called Kara, to knit her husband's sweater in 1990. 'We began to save the hair, by taking it off the brushes after we'd groomed Kara or by rolling it from the carpet where she had been lying,' she added.

Mrs Willis said people sometimes come up and tell them they're barking mad but it 'seems normal to us'.

'Brian can go out in his jumper in the winter without a coat, even in the snow, and when he comes back in he just gives himself a shake,' she added.

I wonder if he's ever involuntarily given the nads a lick in public...hmmm!!!!

This woman is on the show tomorrow get your vegetables ready!!!!!! -
