We recently adopted a toy poodle. She is an absolute love and she has been an inspiration to extend my walks. She and I do mile long walks on the road. The only things that stop us are dangerous roads or dangerous temperatures. With enough bundling up we have ventured out for our long walks even with the very cold temperatures we have had recently. I have coats and scarves, the little peanut has her own wardrobe for our jaunts. So far she has not shown any signs of minding the cold but she does wait for me to put her coat on her before we head out the door. I am going to work on a rain coat for her next considering spring is bound to be rainy. Maybe even a lined rain coat for our stormy days. Once I finish making a couple coats with my free dog coat pattern, I am thinking about buying Wild Ginger's, Wild Things Pets. The free evaluation download looks like I will have to have it to make her some special little outfits, especially for Halloween.
