There are directions on  this site: http://www.janitasdesign.com/softspot/english/index.html

You have to click on the Cat Crafts link to the right and then find the radiator bed project from the list.

Check out this realistic fox sewing pattern:
pattern.html  (This one looks very life-like!)

Follow the links because she has a few other animal patterns there as well.

Here is a fox puppet: http://www.puppetpatterns.com/Downloads/4003%20Fox%20Finger%20Puppet%20(R1).pdf

Here is a lion puppet: http://www.cranstonvillage.com/uploadedfiles/LionPuppet.pdf

Another place to search for patterns is on del.icio.us. This is a social tagging site and you can search through other people's bookmarks to see all the cool things they have found. You'll find amazing things this way.

My del.icio.us ID is "tagmysites". I have a bunch of cool animal sewing patterns bookmarked. I have lots more on my Internet bookmarks that have not yet made it over, but they soon will. So if you set up a free account at del.iciou.us, just add my id to your network and you will be able to see when I tag new stuff. 

Still another place I find great patterns: Go to Google, but then click on the More > Even More links until you get to the Blogs search option. Blog searches are WONDERFUL places to find patterns you might not find doing a general google search.

Here is a pattern for a life-size stuffed hound. You can modify it to make the dog look more labby.

Here is a pattern for male cat "studpants" -- but you should be able to modify them -- or at least get an idea how to make something for your female dog:

Did you check out this site: http://www.sewing.circleofcrafters.com/freepetvestpattern.html

It has a small jacket and dress for a chihuahua. The looks like you can turn it into a vest somehow.

If you decide that heat will be a good option for your dog, a simple idea is to make heat packs out of  rice bags that you can put into the pockets of the garment. There are surely instructions for them somewhere on Craftster. (Warning: if I remember correctly, you should only use cotton fabrics and thread for these -- you can also fill old cotton socks with rice, heat the socks up in a microwave and use them).

If you want to go down the cooling road, you might want to check out these instructions for making "Cool Down Mats" using polymer crystals you can find in a garden store: http://www.ceannmor.com/cool_ties_cool_mats.htm

Note: The polymers are sold under several names. You can find more patterns by doing a search fo "cool ties". These will be bandana patterns and you'll have to modify them, but by looking at the instructions you'll be able to come up with some of the different names the polymer is sold under.

This site has a pattern for a cat sweater that you might be able to modify:


Note: The website is set up in frames and I can't find a way to link directly to the pattern, so once you are at the site:

Click on the CAT CRAFTS link in the left, blue column

Click on the CAT SWEATER link

They also have a post-op garment and other patterns as well.

If you can modify the pattern they posted, please show us pictures and share your instructions with us!

Maybe you could try this pattern: http://www.saunalahti.fi/glottis/raincoat.htm

It is a full body "rain coat" for a dalmatian sized dog, but you could alter the pattern to fit your dog, use warmer fabric and sew pockets on the outside for the cold packs (wouldn't heat packs be more useful for arthritis)?
