thanks Cher. I see many more dogs wearing paw protectors and most of the little ones wearing coats. It's very cold here in winter and I think it's a good idea.

While I don't agree with dresssing dogs up at all dogs do get cold just like people and often like their coats. In winter my dog wears one at night to bed, and if I'm not sure its that cold she will wake me up if she does get chilly :D

I live in Florida, it does not get too cold here, but when it gets a little chilly I do put coats on my animals when they go outside.

A dog wearing a cot in winter isn't dressing them up.They get cold the same as humans do.Would you like to freeze without a coat during winter???? Think about it!
