I agree that being in the garage isn't ideal for a poodle, but Marcie had some great advice on making the area warmer if that is what you decide you must do. Also, a crate cover may help keep and drafts from chilling Georgia. I am going to cover two sides of Lily's crate with a blanket to make sure she doesn't get a draft (we live in an old house).

is she crate-trained inside your house during the day? where is her crate then? it would be nice if her daytime and nighttime crate spots were the same. is that possible?

i know you don't want her to wake the baby in the middle of the night, so can the crate go in a room with a closed door so that she'll be comfortable but not so loud?

do you have a white noise generator (or box fans) that you can sleep with and particularly where the baby sleeps so she'll be less likely to wake her?

I just thought of these heat reflecting pads
Dog Beds: Cozy Cushion® Dog Bed by Drs. Foster & Smith
It may work for your use.
I have one of these - gotta dig it out for Lily

Thank you all for your input. We are still discussing what to do. For tonight I am going to take some of those UHaul moving blankets and let her sleep on those and cover up the kennel as well. I was googling various things and found this: Winter Coats

This lady made her poodles coats to wear. I can sew, so this was a neat idea!

I could not find a way to contact the author of the website or the maker of the coats. In general, it's a courtesy to ask if they mind if we copy their pattern. Most people do not mind, but it is nice, if you ever run into the original designer, to have had their blessing on the item you copied. This allows the designer to ooh and ahh over whatever you have done with the design, rather than to take the opportunity to get in a snit about your not even bothering to ask if they minded... (I've had the opportunity both ways, and I don't think I've ever said NO to anyone, but to some I have sent a copy of my pattern and some instructions and helpful hints, and to some I just say, "Sure", and give them nothing else. I have been in a snit when I have seen someone selling my designs, which they have clearly copied - since mine is their "Display" piece... - really, if you plan to do that, please at least cut my tag out...)

Does anyone see a way to contact them?

Sarah,
If you click on "Seminars" on the link you posted, there is an email link to them. Those are great jackets, much nicer than other patterns I have seen.

Petedge.com has some great clearance prices on shirts,sweaters and jackets. That design you are considering is wonderful, but thought i would mention for those, like me, who don't know how to sew, a doggy sweater instead of a coat, or even a doggy thirty with a coat over it solves the bare tummy issue. Has she ever worn clothes before? You may want to put one of your old thirst on her and use a rubber and to cinch the waist to see if you think she will even tolerate it, especially overnight. I'd hate for you to spend time and money only for her to chew it off!

I honestly didn't plan to steal her design and take credit for it but I like the idea of asking and then showing her what I came up with if she said it was okay. I'd probably buy one before I'd try to make it without a pattern anyway.....because let's be realistic-I'm not very good at sewing without a pattern. My daughter's dress this week is a good example of that! Good looking out though! Hope you hear back.

If you're not trying to sell her design and especially since she's not selling them, I don't think an OK is really needed.
