I and my 2 year old Boxer, Jewel, recently moved to Tennessee from Texas. My poor litte baby (60 pounds is little..right?) is freezing up here!

If you've had the pleasure of knowing a boxer then you would know that they have very thin fur coats and on thier chest and stomach they only have peach fuzz. So when I take Jewel out to potty she shivers and it makes me so sad. I bought a pre-made coat which doesn't fit because she has a huge chest so I'm attemptimg to work out a pattern. I bought this pretty purple fleece I want to make the sweater out of since she looks stunning in purple Smiley So if you have ever made a sweater for a four legged friend who was 50+ pounds and have advice please let me know.

I went ahead and tried to make it. I made a pattern but then got stuck in bed for a few days and so my wonderful boyfriend ended up doing all the sewing for me. Here is what he came up with Smiley Jewel loves it because she is soo warm in it. She even helps you put it on her lol. He finished this a couple of days ago.





The deep purple didn't show up very well in the pictues Sad But I think it came out very nicely.
