    My take on them is that they have a coat for a reason. I think the dog clothes look pretty gay.

    Buuuuuuut, one morning this week my Westie was actually shivering waiting to come in from the back yard. My routine is to wake up, come downstairs to let him out, go back up and take a shower, then let him back in. I felt pretty bad about that.

    So, I bought him a doggie sweater. It's the least gay-looking one I could find - beige. I've never seen him shiver before, so that was odd. He seems to like the damn thing, too.

    Yeah, I did it. Feels weird, too.

    Pics or it didn't happen. lol

    Some dogs have less fur than other dogs and need that extra layer if they're outside too long or for walks. At least you got a non-gay looking one. I didn't even know they made them in anything other than awful.

    Oh, I had to go to three stores before I found one I could stomach. Petco and PetSmart were an absolute waste of time - nothing but 'awful'/gay.

    Then I recalled a locally owned, non-chain store in Annandale with almost anything one might want for pets. It took me rifling through tons of awful to find this one.

    K...gonna put it on him again and snap a pic. Will try to post.

    sport hunting stores would be a good bet.

    Some dogs really need them

    Good idea! I didn't think of that. That might have been easier instead of going to three separate places.

    He's absolutely adorable!! Doggie clothes being "gay" has never crossed my mind! Some dogs just can't take really cold weather. Opinion: Ya shouda gotten him a nice plaid. :D
