I have a standard sized dachshund who has very short hair and is black and tan.  He gets very cold in the winter so I wanted to make him a coat.  I made a coat from Butterick... but I had to make size Small and it was too loose around his bum and he looks silly... anyone know of any weiner dog patterns for the long and short legged?

I love kitties!!!

Heres another way to make one. Post #54

We have a weenie too...its always been way easier to make one than try to find the right size in the store.

When I first started in the pet industry 25 years ago we had lots of doxie sweaters.  Now there are none.  A doxie sweater has no ribbing around the leg.  That ribbing somehow opens the leg up enough that they walk out of the sweater.  A coat doesn't work very well because it is too open and they walk out of it.  If your short legged doxie walks out of the sweater just cut off the ribbing and finish off the leg hole.  I sent doxie sweaters all over the world and still think the stupidest thing was to discontinue them--all in the name of streamlining marketing for the big chain stores.
