Default Poodle Sweaters!

I have a confession to make! I want to buy Millie a sweater for the winter!

In my defense...it does get quite cold here in the midwest and considering Millie will be going through coat change mid winter, it does make SOME sense to have a something to warm her up! I never thought I would be the type to put clothing on a dog, but after seeing flyingduster's pictures from her poodle party in the snow, I want to get a leopard print fleece sweater! I already asked flyingduster where the owner of the poodle got the leopard print sweater - but apparently they made it themselves.

SO does anyone know where I could buy a leopard print (or other cute pattern) sweater for my brownie spoo, Millie?

Thanks!!!

Mine have knitted sweaters for very cold, wet days - they are wool, so are warm even when wet. A friend knitted them fo me from a pattern available free on the internet.

i'm no help on sweaters- but all my guys have blankets. I own a tack store- so my guys are all decked out in 'dog clothing' that comes from horse blanket companies.

So cute- functional and CHEAP compared to the 'dog store ones"

millie would look smashing in a leopard print one.

I want some of these!

TheGrey has one winter coat - that is quite girly - and most greyhound coats are like this anyway.

Admittedly, I have a coat for my pood man. Yes, he is fuzzy, yes that protects him somewhat, but he shivers anyway. So he has adorable coats. So does TQ. They both also have winter pj's. I live in an old drafty house, so they need them!

I say, if you feel that Millie needs one, get her a coat! You're her caregiver and she trusts you to keep her nice and safe... warmth included (I mean... that's what I'd tell A if I was told "no coats"!)

Sounds like creating my own sweater is the way to go! Now I just need to learn how to sew......

There are lots of knit and crochet patterns out there, too.

NeVar, did you make those horse-blanket coats, or is that something you bought?

Petedge.com has some very cute sweaters, too. You need to buy a certain amount all at once to not get charged a "small order" extra fee, but I never seem to have a problem hitting that amount. ;-)

Yes NeVar...do tell about your coats.

I put clothes on my girls in the winter, it gets really cold here. They have wool and fleece and down filled jackets. I used to laugh at people like me, but seriously, they need it! They have boots for the salt too, they really lay it in the city. I don't know if I would 'dress up' a standard though.

Nevertheless, poodles do not sport a double coat like Shepherds and Huskies...you can go with that as a rational excuse!

ANNDDDD....all those burs and snow balls on their fluffy hair!!!

That dash up there, is another link. I dunno why it appeared that way. My two normally wear the fleece jacket, very nicely made. Sporty and not too shi shi. They definitely have sizes for the bigger dogs.

How cool do these labs look, not sissy at all. -
