Greetings Crafty Beavers,
He's not really fat, but Gus (my supportive assistant and Rhodesian mix dog model) posed for this finished dog coat picture (the coat looks silly because it is actually for a Jack Russell).

I wanted to make a warm doggie coat for one of my freinds in the Rocky Mountains who has a Jack Russell terrier, but I didn't have exact measurements to work with, so I made a generic cape-style pattern with velcro in front and under the belly with a partial-elastic belt under the tummy to adjust to fit.  The lil guy's name is Jack (ironically), so I personalized his coat with brown suede letters and matching brown suede collar so he's look all stylin out in the bitter Colorado snowdrifts.  The suede-covered elastic straps are attached at either side of the tail and slip around the back legs to hold the back of the coat down.  Maybe a pair of bitchin dog snow boots next?  Who knows - I hope you enjoy my post - any and all feedback and improvement ideas are, as always, highly welcomed!  Thanks for looking,
-Erika

Excellent title.  Cheesy    I'm making a covering for my sister's huge dog (a few months too late...), and this shape and style looks perfect.  I hope you don't mind if I borrow it!

This looks like a breeze compared to some of the knitted coats I've seen.  So sweet with the name on it & everything!
