Raincoat Rant: Dog's don't wear raincoats

Can you believe this thing? Isn't it ugly?
Dogs don't wear raincoats, do they? Yesterday after a full day of rain we wanted to go for a walk. Not wanting that wet dog smell in the house my owner got out the dreaded raincoat. Not only is this a people thing (dogs don't wear clothes), it is a bright orange raincoat. I don't know why bright orange... maybe she thought I'd get lost in the woods or something.

And not only is it bright orange, it has my name emblazoned on it in big bold block letters. How embarrassing. I might slink through the neighborhood unnoticed if it didn't have my name on it but, now everyone will know who is out there wearing this ugly thing. Grrrr.

So she put it on me and I didn't like it one bit. I just stood there and waited for it to come off. But no, it was velcroed on. "Oh please don't make me wear this," I thought. On went the leash (usually that makes me happy) but the coat was still there.... stuck on me! I didn't rush for the door as usual. I just stood there wincing.

So she pulled on the leash and I made it outside but, again, just planted my paws so she'd take it off. I hate raincoats!

In a few minutes it stopped raining. There IS a doggie god out there. There IS! She ripped off the raincoat and I happily went for a grand walk through the neighborhood, trotting and prancing.... sans raincoat. I was so happy!

    Cinnamon, you are beautiful no matter what your owner makes you wear!!

  2. What a great idea! I had no idea that there were such things as raincoats for dogs... I'm totally getting one!

  3. This post solves a lot of my problems. I was thinking to buy dog raincoat for Joss my lab as he doesn't like to move out of the house during rains and i wasn't sure of buying one for him thinking he might not like it. Many thanks once again :)


Thanks for your comment. Love, Cinnamon
