Rekindling the Puppy Spirit

Now that he is getting on in years, Terry has lost much of his puppy-like exuberance. He rarely will go on jogs with me, and constantly shivers and shakes in the house. I recently picked him up a dog sweat shirt, and not only does Terry seem more comfortable, but it also gives him a younger, edgier appearance.

The Functional Side of Canine Clothes

dog-coats

These days it’s not uncommon to walk down the street and see pets adorned in all manner of human clothing. Paris Hilton helped to popularize the trend; her Chihuahua, Tinkerbell, practically served as a fashion accessory in her own right. Hilton would parade around with the dog peering out of a purse or handbag, and it was almost always decked out in miniature pink apparel.

Dog coats aren’t just stylish statements, however – they have a more practical purpose as well. Now that the air has turned chilly and snow will soon be falling in many parts of the country, a puppy parka or rain slicker is an essential part of any walking routine. Even though dogs’ natural fur is usually enough to keep them warm, it doesn’t always cut it in harsh conditions.
