I recently bought Spencer a coat. He is 13 years old & has never worn a coat. He's never really had to, as he never stayed outside much. Well, some of you may know he was diagnosed with doggy alzheimer's & the vet suspects he may also have a brain tumor. He's had some behavior changes, one of them being that he has decided he is now an outdoor dog. I have a hard time keeping him in the house. He wants to be outside, but he doesn't do anything to generate any body heat. He just moseys around or lays & sleeps. We also walk everyday, no matter what the temperature. It's been pretty cold this winter in Cincy & that along with the fact he has lost some weight had me worried. I wasn't sure if he would wear a coat, but I thought it was worth a try. I found a lady on the internet that custom makes the coats to fit the unusual Basset body size/type. As you can see by Spencer's face, he's not terribly thrilled with the coat, but he does wear it and does not try to get it off. He wears it when we walk and when he decides he's going outside for longer than a quick potty break. I told him he is handsome & the other dogs are surely jealous, but I'm not so sure he agrees. ;)

Aww, thanks for all the nice comments. Lightning & Stomps - you make Spencer blush!

Yogi's Mom - the website is: gotsnoods.com

The coat fabrics on the site are fleece, but in a variety of patterns. From looking at her site, it seems she takes special requests also. She was very nice to deal with & filled my order quickly. I would recommend her.
