I love it, but how about a brown shirt?

I thought about brown but i've heard that black other dark colors don't show up well on brown, so I went with olive instead.

I love it! Would like a different color shirt but I'd order one anyway.

I still don't like the green - it looks a bit pickle-like. A dark brown alpha doggie on a brown shirt would be perfect, but I would still buy green - I have three dachshunds, and how often can you find such a cool dachshund design? !

Yes, one of them is the alpha dog, but he is better know as the alpha wimp.

that looks great, very nice contrasts! you'd get my vote for the yellow one. Much nicer color for summer dog walks.

My kids and husband would love this! my husband had "hot dog dogs" growing up. I'm an "ears up" dog fan myself, but I still like the design.

& the Gaggle of Girls; so many shirts, so little space in the dresser!

How about beige/tan/natural/off white shirt with the brown dog? I love the design and will buy 1 or 2 but I don't look good in yellow or white. Green is dark always seems armyish. Hey, purple is my favorite & I'd buy several then. I'd like it but some might not. Some might think weiners look un-natural in purple?! F.Y.I. We have 2 dachshunds. Ours are Black & Silver Dappled so we can't ever find anything with their coloring, let alone a nice design like this. Can't wait till it's on sale! Thanks! Good Job!

Just realized you also designed Dragonly Love. As I went out the door for work on May 2nd, I asked my boyfriend to order one for me. I love that design too. I keep checking my mailbox for it to arrive... Thanks again for another grate design!
