Bringing Home Puppy


Shop Till You Drop!

Toronto has just declared an Extreme Cold Weather Alert Рwhich basically means its going to be damn cold, not including windchill.  This does not bode well for our canine friends, particularly the skinny ones with no hair on their undersides.  Canines just like Timmy.

Last winter, while I really enjoyed his Chilly Dogs coat (you can read about that here), I couldn’t get over the notion that his little (big) ears must get pretty cold! ¬†We had fashioned a little hood for him out of a tube sock, by cutting the end off, and sliding his head through. ¬†This kept the ears pressed to the head, and hopefully warm. ¬†But he hated it, and it looked rediculous.

Well, lo and behold, while perusing Etsytoday, I found the solution! ¬†Now, if you aren’t familiar with the site, Etsy is basically a crafter’s paradise. ¬†It’s a site where people can post their handmade items for sale to the general public. ¬†They’ve got everything from¬†jewelery¬†to furniture, to clothing, soaps, knitting patterns and more. ¬†Much, much more. ¬†Etsy must have been made by the devil, because you could literally spend all day on it, not to mention thousands of dollars.

In any case, I came across this coat:

It’s made by VoyagersK9Apparel, out of Deerfield, Michigan. ¬†Notice the handy ear covers?! ¬†When you place your order they also ask for extensive measurements, so that this coat will fit like the proverbial glove! ¬†They even provide a YouTube link so you can make sure you take your measurements perfectly. ¬†Its not just for little dogs either. ¬†You can get your Boxer, Doberman, Boston Terrier and Greyhound fitted, and all other breeds as custom orders. ¬†Fingers crossed this is the solution to our winter problems!

We were home in Chatham this weekend to celebrate Christmas with my side of the family this year. ¬†Even my bro made an appearance, all the way from Iqaluit! ¬†It was a great time. ¬†Most exciting for Timmy however, was recieving a new coat! ¬†Upon opening it, we assumed it was store bought…but it fit perfectly! ¬†In fact, my mom had actually sewn it herself! ¬†How impressive is that?!?!?

Gotta love the houndstooth with fur trim! ¬†What a stylin’ pup!!!
