It’s a Great Day to Wear Argyle!

Greetings Fellow Breeders 🙂

Today marks one of those obscure holidays that I know K-9 breeders will be delighted to celebrate! It’s National Argyle Day! That’s right, January 8th recognizes and honors the pattern derived from the tartan of Clan Campbell, of Argyll in western Scotland.

An argyle pattern is made of diamonds or lozenges, with overlapping motifs that typically contain an overlay of intercrossing diagonal lines on solid diamonds. The pattern has been used for kilts and plaids and the patterned socks (known as a tartan hose) worn by Scottish Highlanders since at least the 17th century.

Argyle became fashionable in England and the U.S. after the World War I. The Duke of Windsor, a luxury knitwear manufacturer and importer, helped increase argyle’s popularity by incorporating the argyle design pattern for golf clothing.

Since then, argyle has been adopted by other golf enthusiasts and, today, it’s considered “preppy”. Even the most stylish Amaretto K-9s wear argyle! Just look at these awesome traits.

Back in December 2013, Amaretto threw a twist into K9 breeding. During that month, when you bred any color of Yorkie and any color of Chihuahua together for the chance at a Chorkie Coat. These awesome little doggies came with the Argyle Eye and Collar, both of which do have the ability to pass.

So you see, it really is a great day to wear argyle, not only on yourself but your K-9s too!

Until next time…HAPPY BREEDING!
