This Hound Needs a Harley!
Woofing Wordless Wednesday

Oliver Sports his Leather Jacket
It is forecasted to be 82 degrees here today, so it's ironic that I choose to show off Oliver's Christmas gift from his special girl. Check out this fur-lined leather jacket! Oliver's got a "little black book" tucked inside so he can collect phone numbers from all the girls that come to see how studly he looks.

We're hoping for at least one cold snap when he can get some use out of this adorable addition to his wardrobe. I have to admit, it is rather fun receiving cool stuff for Oliver to wear. Poor Tanner only owns one jacket, recently received from Petco as a review sample.  What about your dog? Do you dress him or her? Do you find that your small dog gets all the cool fashions?

I have a theory on that common situation. Beside the obvious factor that smaller items require less fabric and therefore are not quite as expensive to make or to buy, our smaller pups' bodies have less mass, making it a bit harder for them to stay warm.

Of course there are owners out there that dress their tiny ones strictly for cuteness, and I can enjoy them as well. Oliver has a few Tshirts that are obviously not for warmth. They are generally just used for "events" like conferences and photos.

Tanner can still swim on a chilly day and not seem to notice the cold. Oliver, on the other hand, will shiver on a cold day while we walk, if he is not wearing a sweater. I've come to believe this is at least partly due to the different in body mass. Any opinions? 

PS--Have you heard about the Red Carpet Cat? The Tiniest Tiger will be tweeting from the Academy Awards, and Dogtipper is lucky enough to join them with a Twitter Party to post their pics with the stars and give away some Tiniest Tiger Hipster bags. Sounds like fun--January 22th.

82 degrees? Boy, you are lucky! Come to Seattle and Oliver could wear his jacket all day. It's 40 degrees here.

He certainly won't get much use out of it, but looks really cute!

Oliver is adorable in his jacket! Shiloh had a Harley leather jacket that he wore only long enough to take the picture, then he gave it to a dog who would appreciate it more. Shiloh doesn't like to dress up. The only things he's worn other than the Harley jacket are a Halloween costume last year and a t-shirt for his Super Dog Sunday photo, and he wears his Thundershirt when needed.

82 degrees?? I envy you.

I don't dress my dog up as he's too big. I tried putting a t-shirt on him once & he didn't appreciate it.

I'm with you on your theory about body mass. I also think the style & thickness of their hair helps some.

I had to laugh at 'studly' & his little black book. He looks very handsome in his new leather jacket.
