Here in the Pacific Northwest raincoats are just part of the uniform. I know some people would never put a coat on a dog, but what dog would want to be wet? Definitely not Deedle. She is cold most of the time, anyway, and all this rain just isn’t what this African pooch signed on for. So, she gets to wear a coat. We got her a great coat a few years ago, but it is starting to get worn out, and it isn’t completely waterproof. I cheated and just copied that coat to make this one.
I used some leftover exoskin from my stash and used fold-over elastic for the raw edges. Easy peasy. It is not as toasty as Deedle might like, but it is just fine for the mizzly weather. Someone commented that she looked like she was wearing a spacesuit.
