I have some leftover polar fleece and I thought I might be fun to make something for my friend's dog.  The dog is itty-bitty--a Chihuahua like the Taco Bell dog.  I could ask her for the measurements, but I'd rather surprise her.  Does anyone have any Wild Things measurements for this type of dog that I could use?

Thanks!

I have a 4-5 lb rat terrier that I could measure if that is small enough and You tell me what I have to measure.

Thanks, Glenda.  I really appreciate that.  I need body length, body circumference, neck circumference, front and back leg circumference, and front leg span.  I just copied this from the instruction manual:

A. Body Length - from the nape of the neck where the collar sits to the base of the tail

B. Body Circumference - the largest circumference of your pet around its middle.

C. Neck Circumference - around the nape of the neck where the collar sits

D. Front Leg Circumference - around the top of your pet’s front leg where the leg meets the body

E. Back Leg Circumference - around the top of your pet’s back leg where the leg meets the body

F. Leg Span - the distance between the two front legs

G. Around Head - the circumference of your pet’s head

I may not need to remind you of this but I'm going to say something since I have forgotten more than once when making dog coats: remember the ease!!

When my dogs were standing still, the coats fit great! I only found out after I attached all of the snaps and bundled them up that they needed movement room. Duh.

When talking about dog clothes.  We were given a sweater for our 8 lb. Chihuahua mix.  This dog is a hyper but loving dog.  When we put the sweater on him he layed down and refused to move.  Here is a picture of Jetson in his sweater.  No dog clothes in this house no matter how small they are.  Jellybean who is 5 pounds a normally docile dog won't sit still until the clothes are off.

I know my friend likes to dress her dog up, so I think she (the dog) will be agreeable!  My cat, however, would never stand for it.  I will have to check with Lisa about the ease issue; I just assumed that ease would be included, but I realize now that could be a dangerous assumption.

Lisa, do the Wild Things Pets patterns account for any wearing ease?  If I put in the measurements that Glenda gave me will my friend's pet be able to move?  I think the dog is even smaller than Glenda's, but I'm not sure.  I know it doesn't have to be a couture fit!  I'm doing the winter coat, so it won't have to fit around the legs and arms.  I just checked the program and there aren't any options for adding ease on this selection, so it looks like everything will be okay.

Dog clothing is certainly big in Japan...I regret to say, you can even put your dog in kimono.

I suppose some twisted people even...dress their dogs in Hello Kitty, though bunny ears seem to be more standard for the cross-dressing canine.

Just looked at the dog kimonos - kind of cute, but at the same time totally trashy. You'd never get my dog in one, that's for sure!

Jetson is so cute in his coat. If he only knew!

I make coats for greyhounds...a way different type of dog...

Vicky your jackets look really nice.  Jetson and Jellybean might tolerate something like that.
