Lady Bing Cherry is a husky/shepard mix, and although she is well equipped to face Ontario winters, she tends to hold a lot of moisture in her heavy undercoat after an outing in the snow, not to mention I have to pick about 10 pounds of snow balls off of her belly and legs.
Since she has never before worn a sweater, I was reluctant to sink hours into hand-knitting her one, and so decided to make good use out of an old wool people-sweater.
I felted the sweater in the machine and re-fit it for doggy proportions. The neckhole and armholes are the same, its just wider in the chest and shorter underneath to accomodate her back legs. There are real mother of pearl buttons to close up the sides, and the sweater itself is 100% Italian Merino wool! Classy Doggy!
The fit isn't bad, though it's baggy around the shoulders. I think I will take them in a bit, but she seems to like it quite a bit. Clean up after an hour long romp in a foot of snow was minimal. It really did help!

She really isn't snarling here, she had cookie caught in her gumline
