New Coats

Mom is very upset with me this morning. Yesterday a package came for me, it was from BaxterBoo.com, with two new coats. Mom was so excited she spent lots of time, and money, trying to find me something to wear for our walks when its really cold out.


The first one she tried on me is the fuchsia fleece by Ruffwear. It has reflective piping and a zipper, which mom found very hard to start. But the fit is nice and roomy and covers me up good, even my bare tummy. I don't look very happy with it though do I?


The second coat she got is by Hurtta, for the active outdoor dog, which mom must think I am. I don't like it at all but Mom loves it. She likes the way the flap folds under and a belt adjusts around my middle. There are elastic bands that my back legs go through keeping the coat down, which is what I don't like the most. It doesn't cover up my tummy at all though.


So this morning mom and I were up early and I new she was going to try and put that coat on me so it took lots of coaxing, chasing, and some treats to get me in the back porch and get ready to go outside. She was so excited it was finally snowing out! I did not cooperate at all! She has been trying this new trick lately when I don't want to walk. She drops my leash, after making sure it is safe, and then walks off without me! She got me most of the way down the alley that way with a few treats then I turned and headed for home. She took the leash off me so I could do a quick potty in the backyard and then we went inside. She has ignored me ever since. But that's okay I went back to bed. 

If any of my followers can understand what we are going through and have any advice we would greatly appreciate your comments! Love, Dolly

  2. Oh I wish I knew the answer...Maggie sometimes will just stop and stare if I walk a different route than the one shes wants. I have been so tempted to just drop the lease and go home! However she seems to do this with traffic around.
    Love your coats Dolly, you getting a real nice wardrobe!

  3. Dolly, you need to work with Mom and get her trained properly. Yeap, I have a coat that I don't like either, but when the cold, wind and ice are here is sure feels good. You just need to wear it around more, and grow into it!

  5. Dolly, get those coats when Mom isn't looking and hide them somewhere that she will never find them. Problem solved! And by the time she buys you another one, it'll be summer and you won't need it!
