My poor angel gets sooooooooo cold in the winter, so I thought I had better do something about it.  (All the shivering and sad looks were really getting to me.  He is a bit of a drama queen.)  I start looking around for patterns and found one on BurdaStyle http://www.burdastyle.com/howtos/show/199



Overall the jacket turned out pretty good, but Howl is part Mastiff and I didn't allow for his wrinkle skins, or the fact that his underside slopes up. 



I also learned very quickly that the dark flannel and black corduroy that I used are magnets for puppy hair!   Smiley  I think I am going to make him another one with what I've learned, but in the meantime, he isn't let me take his new jacket off!  Lucky for me, cold dogs aren't picky!

Awwww it's a big doggy coat. Howl is adorable. My big puppy is double coated and we live in Texas so a coat for him would be kind of silly, but I've entertained the thought. For now I stick to putting cheerleading costumes on him at Pet Smart.  Grin For your next coat I'd just match a color to his fur. When I have my own house I just want carpet that matches the animal's fur colors when they're all mixed together.

Ha!  We live in Mississippi!  Howl is a wimp.  I bet he would let me dress him up in other stuff, but his dad had a hard enough time with the coat.   Cheesy  Too bad all of my furbabies are way different colors...that carpet plan is brilliant!
