I went to the store to buy Chloe's winter gear. I bought a 16" , was too small , went back and got a 18" , now I wish it was a bit bigger , what do you think ?

If I go back for a 20" , it might be a tad too large for her ?

It looks perfect to me, Frenchy!! And look at that smile on the fashion model's face!! :cloud9: I think she likes. :D

Is the measurement from collar to tail? If so, 20 inches will likely be too big :shrug:

Oooo, I love the plaid :thumbs up

So cute and it looks like she is very proud to wear it!

I think the size is just right.. any longer and it's going to interfere with her tail wagging (and seeing how happy she is she wouldn't want her tail to be impaired:lovestruck:)

Any bigger and the wind would probably blow underneath and make her cold :sad:

Love her pics...she looks very happy with her new outfit :lovestruck:

May I ask where you bought them that they were not that expensive???? Hobo is not much of a cold weather guy so I might have to cave and get him one this year... totally Macho, of course ;)

as everybody says, I think it's the right size, and she looks great in it!!

I had some problems getting the right sizes too... Got one online wich was too big, than exchange it for a too small, (then I kept it cause sending it back was costing too much for the worth of it) and I just got back from Mondoux and it's too big :frustrated: I guess I should learn how to sew and make this one smaller, since I can't return it (stupid policy)

Pet store near my place , in Napierville , this one was $16.99 !! It's a 18" , I think the biggest size they have was 24"

I think the best way is to bring the dog , once you know the size you won't have too. But then again , same size doesn't always fit the same :frustrated:

You can't return the online one or the one from Mondou? Why? Who has a policy like that, especially with dog clothes :wall::wall::wall:

Frenchy, ur right, I should have brought Lex but ended up at Mondou without planning it.. and you know, Lex isn't that great on leash with other dogs around (off leash he is awsome) and there always are dogs at mondou (wich is great, obviously)

diandpat, I returned the online one, asked the online store what would be the proper size since I ordered the jacket following the chart very cautiously and it didn't fit, and the lady told me a large, so I returned the big one and finally received the large, wich was too small :wall: but since I would be ending up paying 3 times the price of the jacket if I retruned it again (arounf 11 bucks shipping back to them) I just kept it and let hem know how unimpressed I was :rolleyes:

And yeah, Mondou has no return policy for clothes, so I really have to just suck it up and learn how to sew!!!!! bleh.

:sorry:for the rant

BTW Frenchy, I really like the look of yours, it is a simple look. I am no big fan of fancy fancy ones with the matching scarf and hat... :laughing:

That looks good on her.I think the next size up would be two big.i know it's from collar to base of tall unless the coat is made to go around the neck.
lucky girl.

You don't live west island montreal do you? I saw someone walking a familiar looking dog with a reddish coat on like that this after noon, and someone in front of me had a off leash GSD mix that ran up to it (while the other dog walker was obviously trying to avoid this)

No , I'm on south shore. So you mean another dog is walking around with the same coat ? Oh noooooo , Chloe will be crushed :sad: I told her it was a "one of a kind" !!

Frenchy, I really love the coat.

But ummmm errr and please scuse me for asking this..(I love to live dangerously...:D) .. but why does she need a coat? Isn't she a Golden retreiver?

Does she get cold? Or does Mum just like the look of them? :D Or is Mum going to buy a coat that matches Chloe's and make a real fashion statement walking down the street? :D That would be kewllllllll.

That is a gorgeous coat, and it looks like the perfect fit.

I desperately need to find a style like that for Pugs at least, if not Bo as well.

A Golden ? :laughing: that's what I was told when she needed to go into rescue .... and when Poodletalk picked her up for me to foster , she called me with the breaking news : Chloe was a Cocker mix lab/golden :laughing: so she's a mini golden at 38 lbs ... or an oversize cocker :D

Shop around , I know online these coats must be very pricey , still can't believe I got this one for under $20.00 !
