Molly's makeshift cold weather wear

Molly and I are having a rough go these days but I took these pictures and they made me smile... and smiles are best shared with friends so, I post them for you.

It's been COLD and with Molly not being so well, I'm trying to keep her warm when she wants to venture outside.

First try... a way too small jacket with a fleese blanket underneath
Worked pretty well but was so NOT stylish


and it didn't cover her belly...

So, I tried out one of my vests on her


I think it worked out really well! and the black absorbs some of the sun for extra heating capacity

Not too shabby


Perfect ball chewing gear


sorry no standing pics.... she's having a mostly laying down day

The vest was a great idea! although I thought the first solution was pretty snazzy. Looks really warm and actually pretty sylish...that layered look is in, y'know.

But the vest was a stroke of genious--warm but not too bulky!

I love the "Not too shabby" picture--she looks so regal!

Ya, the vest has worked really well... wish I had of thought of it earlier. Even the zipper up the back works well, easier than velcro and the vest is big enough that I can lift it away from her fur to zip up.

I too love the "not too shabby" shot... just gotta find me a really good photoshop editor to take out the garbage in the background

She looks comfy enough in it--plus very proud to be wearing something of mom's!

Otter, what are Molly's measurements? I might have something that could fit her. I have SO many big dog coats, it's ridiculous! She looks happy to be outside though! And I think your ideas were actually really clever! I had to do the vest thing with Petey once too when we were on a trip and it was much colder than expected.

Molly is beautiful Otter she has such a soulful face.

Sad to hear that she is going through a bit of a rough period that it passes soon for her and she gets back to feeling her old self again.

I think she has to lay down... she hasn't perfected standing and keeping all her paws off the ground As soon as she was standing she was all "my paws are cold, my paws are cold" holding them up one after another

If there was treats in the pockets... there probably wouldn't be pockets Someone would have chewed them out (not Molly, of course). Good idea though
For Diamond you'll probably need to do a little nip and tuck to reduce the amount of fabric in the body... I used safety pins but you'd probably want to use thread to be safe.

ADULT XL ... need to have a bigger size to accommodate the neck and length in the body. Molly might be bigger than ya think

Thanks so much Smiley14, I really appreciate the offer I'm afraid Molly might not make enough use of it though :sad: I'm terrified to order anything for her, cause she might not be here when it arrives :sad::sad: Sorry to be so depressing... but I know the end is not far off
