So our 17 year old "puppy" gets extremely chilly in the winter and will sit in his kennel shivering and shaking all day without something besides his fur to keep him warm in our cold Wisconsin winters.  Not to mention that the snow around here is about twice as tall as he is.  So, this winter I decided to make him two polar fleece jackets (so there's a clean one when he's getting a bath because he gets stinky faster with clothes on).  Not only does he like them, he will happily sit in his kennel on top of his heating pad wearing them and hibernate all winter. 

As an added benefit, he also has started to let us know again when he needs to go outside (before when he was nekkid and chilly he would just go in the house instead).  Can't say I totally blame him.  If I were 97 years old, nekkid, and crotchety I'd pee in the house too.  Smiley

I traced a pattern off an existing "dog shirt" and made this one out of double layered polar fleece. Since it didn't "give" like the shirt did, I added the zipper.  The zipper closes away from his head so I can zip it closed as he walks away.

He's some type of poodle mix, we're not really sure.  When he is groomed short I can see terrier in him too.  He was all black as a puppy with a white stripe on his belly within a year he turned totally grey.
