Wow! Now that is one nice coat! (And it covers all the bare spots.) If you decide to take orders, let me know! Please post a picture of Oslo wearing his coat for us to see!

Tazzie's mother is not very talented in the sewing department so he will have to rely on store-bought. The Ruffwear fleece just arrived this very minute. Good thing as the thermometer dropped last night! I'll let you know how it works.

Sid feels the cold, not because of chemo, but because the other hind leg isn't covering up that side of his belly!  Winker

I just bought him a ChillyDogs coat (http://www.chillydogs.ca).  They're made in Canada, but they shipped to England for me.  The good thing from my point of view is that they do a 'long and lean' fit for sighthounds as well as the standard fit. 

I don't think they'd be great for a front leg amputee, but they're wonderful for a hind leg amputee.  They have a T-shaped belly piece, with straps that come up each side and clip on top of the back.  They're shaped at the rear and Sid's doesn't slip.

They do several types, this is the Great White North coat.  The 'polo' neck can be turned up like a snood.

Thanks for the link! Syd looks great in his Chilly Dogs jacket, and it looks like it does cover much of the body.

Chilly Dog Fair Trade Sweaters - M

Searching our affiliates, we found another company called Chilly Dogs Fair Trade Dog Sweaters that manufactures 100% hand-knit wool sweaters, made in the Northern Highlands of South America by descendants of the Inca Indians.

Thanks! The other thing I forgot to mention about the Chilly Dogs coat is that because it's cut quite high at the back, it means that Sid doesn't pee on it - a problem we've found with other standard jackets.  Because he can't lift his leg (d'uh! Laugh) he just uses his hips to 'point Percy', and this means that a normal coat gets wet as he dips to that side.
