Small really does mean small
on 29 November 2014
I have been having great difficulty finding a warm coat to fit my little chihuaua cross dog, as, at 13 inches, she is a little longer than the average chihuahua. She is also 'whippet-shaped', in that she's very slim with a slightly barrel chest.
After much deliberation, I found this little coat. I thought it might be a little short, but the body size appeared to be fine, so I ordered it.
The coat arrived quickly and excellently wrapped. It is beautifully-made and would be (I would say) medium-warm - quite warm enough for anything but a really hard winter. I doesn't have a hole for a harness, but I usually make a hole for this in most dog coats I buy anyway.
The only thing was.....although it fits my skinny chi perfectly in the body, it is much too short - at least 2-3 inches too short if not more.
However, because this is such a nice coat and it fits so well everywhere else, I am keeping it. I'm going to buy some waterproof material (possibly gaberdine) and put a 'hem' on the bottom of the coat. A fair bit of work, but problem solved!
So overall, this really is a 'small' coat, in all ways.
