Last Winter,Divinity was very cold and actually froze in mid-step on a number of occasions. Divinity has a warm winter “horse blanket” she wore over her fall hooded sweatshirt, but she still shivered most of the time when outdoors.
I searched for “long-johns” for her, and posted my needs on a Cairn Terrier rescue group where several other people had similar problems with their Cairn Terriers. Unfortunately, at the time, I failed to find anything that fit Divinity’s needs without requiring the services of a tailor.
This winter, finds the cold bothers Divinity much more than last winter. I started looking for more winter clothes for the little lady. As winter began in Minnesota, Divinity & I moved, and I met someone that sews. They offered to make a winter outfit for Divinity. This suit was literally custom made, and hand tailored. Divinity actually had three fittings! Divinity loves this new outfit, she is warm, comfortable, and with the addition of her Ruff Wear boots, she now zooms all over the place.
Just an FYI before anyone asks, this suit is a “one-off,” the person who made it said this is the only one they’ll make.
This was specially made for Divinity.
I promised the person who created this lovely outfit I’d post comments made about their creation, so here goes!
Here is Divinity looking for my landlady to thank her for her wonderful suit.
