This summer my Military husband, myself, and our two Italian Greyhounds will be moving from
the West Coast to Nebraska.  This winter they will need more jammies, boots, snoods, etc.  I
would LOVE to be able to make their coats, and snoods.  Does anyone know of a pattern I could
follow?  THANKS!

I have made a number of 4-legged fleece suits for my chihuahua and for my little whippet X. This pattern is very simple to sew but you would need to make some changes to the pattern to get it to fit your little sighthounds. If you put a long turtleneck on you could pull it up over their ears.

Here's a free pattern and tutorial for boots. In my experience the boots need to come quite far up the leg to stay on little feet. I make the back ones long enough to fasten above the knee as well as around the wrist. On some dogs even long boots won't stay on without some help (remember idiot strings for mittens that you had when you were a child?)

This site has free patterns for several coats and a 4-legged suit. Again, you would have to make alterations to get them to fit your dogs.

Good luck. Please post photos of what you make.
