And what breed/s is/are it/they?

I have a greyhound, and he has a housecoat, a lightweight mac, and a fleece lined waterproof coat. He also has a woolly snood for when it's really cold!

Oh and he has 3 bandanas. But they don't serve a purpose other than make him look cool grin

I have a greyhound too - he is very old and feels the cold. At the last count he has a fleecy housecoat, a warm waterproof coat, a lightweight mac and a knitted jumper to keep his tummy warm. He is considerably better dressed than me grin

Mine has a jumper( no sleeves) , a fleece coat, a waterproof coat and a scarf that he wears when it's really cold. He doesn't need indoor clothes .

Ok, so greyhounds don't have long hair, but they are waterproof? Coats for indoors? AIBU to find this a slightly odd thread?

jk greyhounds have very thin fur and skin with virtually no body fat, so they get cold very easily, getting drenched in the rain doesn't help. And our house is early 1900's so no wall insulation and it gets very cold at night (dropped to 9 degrees last winter in our bedroom shock ) but we can't afford to have the heating on all night.

When we adopted him he came with his fleece waterproof grin

None, but he's a big fat Lab.

and the bandanas? hmm

monsterchild Thu 27-Sep-12 14:32:20

None? She's a Blue Heeler.

my boxers have bandanas smile

None. A big shaggy Labradoodle that doesn't need any but a shave in summer and a Staffy that refuses to leave the comfort of a centrally heated house.

TheGOLDCunnyFunt Thu 27-Sep-12 14:32:52

As I said above, they just make him look cool grin

I don't dress him up just for the hell of it (apart from his bandanas), he has clothes to keep him warm and dry. That's the only reason!

hurtta winter coats and a couple of Outhwaite jackets for cold days only

My cocker has a blue fleece, a raincoat....

...and a multicoloured Arran sweater with matching legwarmers that he got for Xmas one year grin

Jk mine has a fluorescent bandana so it's a safety thing not a fashion statement

Aaaw mine have rain coats and a jumper each - a polo neck because I think these are cute grin

Am also thinking of purchasing boots for Christmas for them

My dog is a pug. Apparently they love dressing up! Mine doesn't. I did try with a jumper but she just stood very still looking petrified so I gave up grin

Housewifefromheaven Thu 27-Sep-12 14:50:59

I do rather like lo

nameuschangeus Thu 27-Sep-12 14:53:34

Mine has a lovely black furry coat made of genuine Labrador skin and a smelly extremely fetching red collar grin

Housewifefromheaven Thu 27-Sep-12 14:54:10

Oops! I do rather like though looking at pictures of dressed up dogs. There's a site where people take pics of their dogs dressed as bees!! Bee dog I think.

Min's a whippy-cross but she is fairly furry, with an undercoat. But still feels the cold as she is delicate and thin (the backdoor is open at this moment so she is wandering around looking very cold).

She has two warm coats, a raincoat and several rather snazzy bandanas. And I have a pattern that my mum gave me, for a snuggly sweater.

I used to have a very tiny rescue yorkie, who had, amongst other things, a lovely Santa suit to wear on Christmas Day. Bought, needless to say, by my then teenage DD ('He looks so cute, Mum!')

I tried to put an elf's hat on mine once and he nearly took my arm off...

LottieJenkins Thu 27-Sep-12 15:00:40

Bumbledog has an army commando dog coat, a raincoat and a Chelsea football shirt!!! grin

When we adopted our dog she came with a bag of stuff which included a full santa outfit. She's never worn it as she'd obvious eaten too much turkey and sprouts and I couldn't get it over her fat arse.

i have a mini Schnauzer and as of yet he has nothing!
After pay day I am going to get him one of these for when the weather gets really cold. A friend with the same breed has one and they seem great!
Before we got him I was quite against dressing animals (and babies for that matter!) in silly outfits, but I have found my self looking online for a doggy santa outfit or similar! blush
