    Thanks guys. All of those are fair reasons IMO. I've know of ppl who just don't have a fair reason IMO. Other than the darned coat matches what they are wearing, or 'it looks cool', or 'it's a fashion accessory'...

    They don't cut it with me. I have no issue with ppl who put Chrissy stuff on their dogs or other stuff for photo shoots and such. A lot of them are gorgeous. But to wear clothing to match the human owner makes me ill, I'm sorry.

    I completely agree with you DA

    I've seen fairy costumes and things like that too, which freaked me out until someone told me they were for Halloween (I don't celebrate it at all - I'm Australian not American FGS, and I don't think it's a good idea for kids to be running up to peoples homes and knocking on the doors etc, plus the majority of the time the kids are rude so I give them nothing anyway), but I figure giving the dog a halloween costume is fair enough if you're the type of person who celebrates it.

    Each to his own, and the dog is loved. Doesn't fuss me as much as one that is not.

    Sometimes I hope I can come back as one!

    If you come back as a dog, what breed do you want to be

    My Mum is terrified of Halloween. Last year the kids went to her house with a big plastic bag of chocolates etc. She had NFI, so she grabbed the bag off them, thasnked them profusely and tried to shut the door on the poor kids.

    When it was explained to her, she was mortified, and swore she'd never answer to kids again. I was ROFLMAO at the time. Norty DA.

    I think of doggy clothes as the ones I wear when I'm washing the dog, and the ones I give to my dog for bedding and to chew when I'm done with wearing them.

    Sometimes she beats me to it (or my mum). Mum has one pair of "odd" socks she wears on the golf course because Frosty ate one of each pair. I bought mum replacement sox but she likes to wear the odd pair too.

    I think they're ridiculous. Where we live it doesn't get cold enough to warrant a coat (coats I think are ok, they are serving a purpose).

    I think that coats or snoods, things that serve a purpose, are fine. But the dress up because "We are going for walkies and you don't want to look silly all in the nude", is a bit kooky!

    I want a raincoat for him so I don't have to follow him around with an umbrella when it's raining though!
    I can understand the need for a coat especially in areas that get really cold overnight in the winter! We used to live in Dalby QLD and minus 5 over night in winter was quiet the norm. The raincoat Angela sounds like a pretty good idea.
    But a bit NO to dressing dogs up in skirts and jeans, fairy costumes etc!

    Like I said...the frilly skirts and little shoes and puppy prams are just pathetic!!!

    I think a coat will be useful and wish I could find a snood to buy somewhere!!! Might have to just make one!
