|Article Author: Dog Clothes Review - A Merryvaluation|
When Merry and I received our package from Chic Pet Boutique, I was laughingly reminded of a quote from the movie Good Morning Vietnam:
You know, this whole camouflage thing for me doesn't work very well. Because you go into the jungle, I can't SEE you! For me, I want to do something different. You know, if you go in the jungle, make a statement! If you're going to fight, CLASH!
No urban warrior-ita ever said it better, mister, and there's no better way to do camouflage (in our humble opinions) than to do it with bright and brilliant pink.
The stylishly bold hot pink camouflage raincoat from Chic Pet Boutique is guaranteed to make your urban warfare a little more girly and a little more civilized. Plus, it keeps you dry, you know?
The outer shell is nylon, a water resistant covering over an inner lining. While the lining is decently thick and would work well for fall or spring, it's so lightweight that the coat weighs barely anything. We will say that the lining is probably sufficiently warm that the coat would be too much in the summer. It's really more of a spring/fall coat.
The small fabric tab at the back of the neck hides a handy sewn leash hole to allow your princess to still wear her harness underneath the coat. Faux pockets on either side at the back and a faux belt are a nice decorative touch.
The dog coat fastens with velcro. The neck fastens with a single strip of velcro, and three velcro strips an inch apart fasten the coat under the belly. The Velcro strips are a shorter length - perhaps two inches - so this coat may not work well for the overly pudgy dog, but average-girth dogs shouldn't have any problem at all.
This coat is most definitely for the teenies on your shopping list. Merry's sporting the largest size available - a L, which fits toplines of 13-15". There are also XS, S, and M sizes available, as well as two other colors (real camo green and a stylish camo blue).
Do you have a little clasher at home? This is the coat to get!
