Wearing a dog coat?

We received a box of doggie items to pass along to one of the rescues we know.  There were a few little dog coats, some dishes, a harness and a couple of collars.  As with everything that is brought into the house, it had to be thoroughly checked out.

"Is this stuff for us?"





Callie seemed to think that one of the dog coats was a toy and she kept mouthing it as if she was expecting to find a squeaker in it.

"Where's the squeaker?"

Breeze was interested in the pink satiny coat.


"ohhh...pretty!"

Perhaps Breeze realized that the pink one wouldn't fit or maybe it was the fact that the others were playing with a different one.  She left the pink one and went outside with one of the other coats.  I followed her outside and placed the coat on her back just for fun.  

It's so difficult to be a fashion model when you're getting your back leg chewed!


Breeze stepped on the coat, picked it up in her mouth and as a result, her leg went through the leg hole.  It looked like she was trying to put it on.

"Does this fit?"

It was funny watching her trying to walk with her leg through the leg hole while she was holding it in her mouth.  She seemed determined to wear a coat!

After a wash and line dry in the sunshine, we happily donated the items to be used for some little rescued dogs who really do need to wear coats.

  1. I don't know why I read your blog title as "Wearing a Cat". I'm clearly dyslexic.

    Breeze has a good fashion sense, even though she can't see :P

    1. NO!! : ) We can't do that. She does wear a pink bandana, that's about as fashionable as we get.

  5. That is too cute, walking and wearing at the same time. A very thoughtful thing to pass on those coats to dogs in need.

    1. Sometimes Breeze is more clever than we realize. Once people know that you're a dog person and involved in rescue, they always ask, "do you know somebody that can use these?"

  6. Happy that you passed these on! Breeze looks so funny and cute trying on the coat- I bet she would have managed in her own time!

    1. You're probably right, she would have eventually got the coat on. Not sure the coat would be useable after that though!

  7. Hahaha, I love the packs' modeling skills!! :-D That's how I like to "try on" new things...chewing, running around, and taking them outside! ;-) Breeze, I definitely think that grey is your color though, looking fab!

    1. I'm just glad they didn't try and get into a serious game of tug with them!

  8. Breeze obviously has a keen sense of fashion.

    I will hang my head and confess that Silas has a coat, even though it never drops below freezing here. He almost never wears it unless we're traveling, though.

    1. Well, Silas is little and has such short hair, so that's okay. Some are more sensitive to the cold.

    1. We're into the heat and humidity here. While Barbie is wearing her coat, the pack will be trying to cool off in the pool while eating frozen treats!

  10. Maybe Breeze realized she's been walking around naked her whole life and decided to cover up!

  11. That's a super cute photo of her with her leg through the coat!

  12. I think Callie has a winning idea--dog coats with squeakers! Breeze is too funny. Love these pups!
