Default Darn, Louie outgrew his winter coat :(

It figures, I had a nice winter coat for Louie that fit when I got it but all our playing and exercising made his chest expand just a little too much for his coat. It only misses fitting by about an inch but it just won't fasten on the bottom. Just my luck I have a Louie dog with a strong chest, lol He is not over weight at all, he has a very nice build for a small dog, no fat on his belly, he is lean but muscular. I do have a real light coat for him and he loves to wear it but it is no where warm enough for the winters we have here with the high winds. At least I have a Louie dog that doesn't mind wearing clothes

Jerry what are Louie's measurements for neck and chest? I think we have a couple extra coats that maybe would fit and would be glad to send if the measurements work out.

His neck is 11" but thats snug, so probably around 11.5-12" would be a good fit
His chest is 17.5" snug, about 18-18.5" would be a closer fit, even slightly larger on both measurements I can work with.

His waist is only 14" so as you can tell, he isn't fat, just well built. He actually bent the metal loop that you hook the leash to from pulling on it and he is less than 10lbs, Lots of exercise and he loves to wrestle with me, very strong for his size! I love this little monster!

oh, he loves it! We play fetch 2-3 times a day, we play fight/wrestle a few times a day plus he has his lessons for tricks. He said he wants to look his best for when he meets some of your furry young ladies!
