Milo's rain suit

Well the stuff finally arrived from Muttluks and I couldn't wait to get the rain suit on him since he's been getting grungy from head to toe in all the damp weather we've been having. Based upon Sam wearing a size 12 and he weighs more than Milo I thought it would fit great. Well it doesn't. Maybe because he's in full coat, but shoving his hair inside is less than pleasant for us both and the openings for the paws are tight (which is good once on to keep the weather out). So, I'll be returning this and ordering the 14, that is unless someone here needs a 12 and would like it.

BTW, it amazingly photographs blue while in reality it is the most beautiful royal purple color.

Oh how adorable!!!! Milo looks very sleek in his Rain Jacket---ready for a shock!!! I had to order my huge Havs an 18 and a 20!!!!! Cash is really long. Jasper was between a 16 and an 18 but I sized up-- I just ordered them 2 days ago- I will certainly post pictures!!! I hope I didn't order too big!!!




Missy, Jasper & Cash

Geri,

i just ordered Polertec snowsuits (windblock/water resistant) for both my Havs from
Bark and Stuff. They are making it per my measurements of my Hav's. This looks easier to put on and take off and I figure they won't be in the rain long enough to soak it..

Here is the site if you want to scheck it out..I think they have rain coats also..

Geri,

Milo looks like he really does not like it!!! I had the same problem with Missy's sweater, I bought a small and it was very unpleasant getting it on her....so we went back for a medium. I thing the sizes are wrong sometimes....hard to believe Missy can be a medium at all 6.5-7 pds.

I really enjoyed the pitures... gave me a good smile this morning. With all I have to do today I needed it.

How cute! I didn't realize how much black hair Milo had either! I think that is a sign we need more photos!

What I love about it is the fact that it covers all of his four legs. That should cut down on his baths and my aggravation. He has a very thick coat on his body though and since he's in full coat he needs more room. I still have to try on his snow suit, which I did order in a 14. We'll see. I'll post those pictures later. I'm giving him a respite for now.

I'll take another shot of the rain suit without him in it. It covers a lot of him while giving him plenty of room to pee unencumbered.

Milo probably weighs about 12 lbs. (he was 11 the last time we went to the vet). He's about 12.5 inches neck to tail.
