Took Millie out in her lovely new rain coat today and it worked a treat. She has wet legs, tail and head. But her body is lovely and dry.




I took some frankfurters out with today, haven't used them as a treat for about a month. Oh boy did she want to please :D I even got a distant 'wait' and 'sit' out of her - could just be luck :)

Tomorrow is 1-1 training with the dog trainer to curb her dead rabbit desire :deadhorse: - No dead rabbit smilie :). Think frankfurters will be in abundance in my training pouch. I'll let you know how it goes.

aw! how cute. Sounds like a good girl. Food works well when training.

How old is your dog? I want to buy a coat for Pixel but no point until she stops growing-I don't know when this is.

Millie is so gorgeous she could make a bin bag look fashionable!!
Thank you Donna, that it such a nice thing to say :D

Millie is 7 1/2 months now and I think she has practically stopped growing. It slowed right down at about 6months. She's filling out more now rather than actually leg growing or body length.

I bought 1 coat and fitted lovely, but hubby said it was too short along the body and it needed to reach her bum more. So he took it back with her and got the right size. It goes on really easy and fits beautifully. :D

I got it in Christchurch Clare, but have got the coat in my hand and found the website.

It fits so well that her tummy stayed dry.

Nadine, they do come in a raspberry, which is almost pink !!!

Sarah love the idea of snow boots.

Wendy, I'll take a look at the new equafleece, thanks.

:smow: :rain: :smow: :rain:

I got a 16" in the end. I've just measured Millie, she's about 18" from neck to top of tail and 14/15" tall. I couldn't work out her chest circumference as she's lying down and the tape measure is one of those metal ones. She didn't like the sound of it ! :D
