She has a bloody death wish and keeps ripping herself open from nose to arse.

If I had my way she would have a full set of leathers grin

So what's the best place to buy a nice thick winter coat?
And she needs pyjamas as my house gets cold overnight during the winter.

Indulge me with some shopping linkys please!

Equafleece do nice warm jumpers and coats and they wash beautifully.

I really like Milgi raincoats and house fleeces. For pjs, I am v happy with the Meggie moo ones cmotdog has. Though he is a bit addicted to them, and would like to wear his jumper permanently.

We also have a high vis Blizzard coat.

I'm in a quandary here - as Milgi is my business, but we do make lovely cosy fleece housecoats, tough ripstop raincoats, and bandanas to complement.

Personally, I don't think you have to have PJs as our housecoats are cut very deeply round the body, and keep tummy, bum and chest lovely and warm. Couple of pics attached of whippy clients looking especially adorable.

Scuttle I want one of those fleeces in the first picture!!

I feel your pain. Rarely a day passes when Pip isn't sporting yet another new wound of some sort and we've had numberable emergency vet trips for stitching in his single year on this planet so far. hmm It comes with having turbo power, very little control over their legs and no brakes! grin

We have a Milgi fleece in place of PJs for him and he adores them. As Scuttle said, they are cut big and he looks ridiculously cuddly and snug in his (pic on profile (scroll down a bit, after all the ones of him unpacking his new treat ball grin). He can't wait to get into his at bedtime, but does have a tendency to take it off himself if he feels we aren't moving fast enough in the morning and he wants his breakfast! grin

I've bought all his outdoor coats relatively cheaply off an ebay seller that makes them to order very quickly (usually a 48 hour turnaround) but hesitate to recommend, as the only time I did the coat concerned didn't fit the dog properly when it arrived, which is a shame, as we've had several off her as he's grown and they've all been great. We have both fleece lined winter coats and lightweight raincoats for Pip off her and they're both fine for him. She does do coats specifically for Whippets though, so you may not have the same problem with fit as someone with a Lurcher, as they can be such different shapes and proportions. Let me know if you want to check them out and I'll pm you the details.

Yes please!

I'm still waiting for scuttle to come back and offer me a price with a good discount for a fellow MNer grin

monkey, it's already reduced on the website. We only have limited sizes left as the wholesaler has stopped supplying that fabric. We have it in an 18", 20" and 24" at the clearance price of £20. A bargain. Here is the link Enjoy!

Eek how exciting, I only need a 20" too!

Whippy is measuring a smidgen over 18", so shall I get the 20"? Just wondering if they come up big?

Oh decisions decisions smile

monkeyfacegrace Mon 01-Sep-14 06:36:53

I've just bought it in the 20". Fingers crossed it'll fit. Pup is only 9 months old so I went bigger to allow her to grow a touch more.

I'm all excited that my woofer has a nice snuggly jumper coming blush

I really like the spotty jumper but dont think dh will be pleased with me getting dafty dog another jumper dafty has her own duvet and duvet cover and fleece blankets in winter we just see her nose poking out underneathgrin

Scuttlebutter Mon 01-Sep-14 09:32:50

It's all wrapped up and ready to post this morning. smile

If it's too big, you can always exchange it - not a problem.

Think we will hear lots of excited squeals when the parcel is opened. grin

I've missed the boat but can thoroughly recommend scuttle's lovely house coats as PJs. I'm not sure how it happened, but we have a little stack that I've now found a space for in my wardrobe grin They are also fab for keeping warm and drying off after bathtime.

monkeyfacegrace Mon 01-Sep-14 13:50:19

You haven't missed the boat spicy, I've ordered a fleece from scuttle for Mrs Whippy to wear in the house!

I'm so pathetically excited. I really need a life outside of my kids and dogs hmm

mistlethrush Mon 01-Sep-14 13:57:24

I can thoroughly recommend the cordura fitted coats made by someone that advertises on the Lurcher Link forum here - my lurcher has had hers for 18 months and it looks brand new (despite her tendency to go through hedges without worrying about the blackthorn or barbed wire). I love the milgi housecoats - he should be lovely and warm in that.

It's here its here its here!

monkeyfacegrace Tue 02-Sep-14 10:56:32

It's a little big, but she is only 10 months so room to fill out. I'm going to order one a month until Feb so she has a nice supply grin

CMOTDibbler Tue 02-Sep-14 11:00:23

Oh, she looks so cute in it!

I'm cross. The sun came out and now it's roasting outside so I had to take it off. Come on snow grin

SpicyBear Tue 02-Sep-14 13:37:08

Oh sweet! Yes roasting here too. Dogs not sure what to make of it after a miserable day yesterday!

moosemama Tue 02-Sep-14 15:30:53

Ah, she looks really sweet.

Shame about the sun, but she'll definitely appreciate it come bedtime. smile
