IA completely. Bailey is a Maltese and they have a single coat of silky hair. It really doesn't keep them warm, even if it's long. He's always needed a shirt, sweater or jacket when it's cold. He loves to be dressed too, he get excited when I pull a sweater out. To me, it's a fine line between keeping the dog comfortable and going to far. I think the degsigner dresses and swimming trunks are just silly, but that's me.My greyhound NEEDED her coat to go outside, as she had no fur or fat and got really cold really fast. I know they are particularly thin-skinned, though.
My point is, some really do need a jacket, not just for our vanity.
These people are local, and they make amazing jackets.
I wish Flip would grow into my old grey's coat, it is still in perfect condition, and they're not cheap!
Did you get any snow recently? I know they quite a bit in Houston. I still need to call my brother in Louisiana and see if they got any.When I was young my grandmother had a minipoo and he wore a sweater in the winter but we lived where it snowed and was very cold in the winter. Here I don't think the dogs would need sweaters unless they spend a lot of time outdoors because the weather just doesn't stay cold for long periods of time.
