It's Raining, It's Pouring...

Pose #1- No Hood!

With this new, stylish rain-slicker there's no excuse not to take Jasper out for his daily walk. I bought him a XL rain slicker recently and it was way too small, so I copied the pattern (then brought it back to the store, tags intact) and proceeded to make him this custom one. It sports a hood, a velcro belt, and a large buttonhole at the neck so that I can hook his leash to his collar. He loves it! I have about 2 or 3 more yards of the fabric. If you are attracted to the fabric, let me know by emailing me or leaving a comment. I'd love to pass it on.

Pose #2- With Hood!

Pose #3- No More Photos, Let's Walk!

Jasper the Wonderdog is a 2 1/2 year old Aussie Doodle. He weighs 111 lbs. and is a big sweetheart.

I can't believe that he would wear it so happily. Simon and Frida would be chewing and pulling. But I guess that the promise of a walk would bribe any dog (except for mine).
I had booties for Simon and he just wouldn't budge.
Love the fabric and love the dog!!

He is just too cute and you are so clever to make that yourself. Kristin

That is the cutest thing ever!! I bet you get LOTS of comments when you are walking him in it. I just adore Jasper.

Patrice, tried to email you and got message back that there was no response from SBC servers. Would like to let you know that Griffin isn't doing very well right now and there is some chance he's not going to get through it. :( -Leslie
