Sadie got a new coat.
I know other dogs have a hard time finding coats and sweater that fit just right, but when you are a dachshund its harder to find a coat that is just right.
After not being able to find a coat that Sadie and I both like and fit, her grandma and I decided to make her one.
Although I was never a Suzy Home Maker, we found making Sadie's coat fun and challenging.
We made her coat with two layers of fleece and a little hood to keep her ears warm.
( Sadie is always cold)
Sadie couldn't wait to try out her new coat, and it was good that we got it done with it when we did because we had snow and had to cut our visit at my parent's house short yesterday.
But Sadie tried it out when we got home while her dad shoveled an area in the back yard, so she would have a place to what she refers to take a squeege without getting snow on her bum.
Sadie was so warm in her new coat that she even jumped in the snow pile.
Sadie isn't usually a big fan of snow, so she wanted to pass on one of her secret snow tips " Before you go outside in the snow have your mom or dad put some Pam or some vegetable shortening on the pads of your feet, because it helps keep the snow from sticking between your toes and helps to insulate against the cold."
