Snowing in Houston? Cold Puggies got new fleece Rain Coats

I am still in disbelief that it snowed here in Houston last week.  It was 33-36 degrees here last week.  The weather is weird with the extreme hot, then cold and freezing, then warm…during all this, we have rain which comes sporadically through the day, whenever it feels like.  I was worried about Porky & Brownie catching a cold since I noticed their appetites have not been that great the last few days plus they both have wet, drippy noses.  This is their first time in such cold weather.

I got Brownie a Seattle Slicker Rain Vest in large and am waiting on the backorder for a size XL for Porky.  I am in love with this jacket.  It has a detachable hood which buttons down to the top of the jacket so the hood doesn’t fall forward and cover his eyes.  The fleece inside is super soft, warm, and fits Brownie’s deep Pug chest very good.  We love the detachable water resistant shell since we can take it off when we get in the house and not get water everywhere and Brownie can still wear the fleece to stay warm.  It’s got a strong magnet on the back of the shell and the fleece so if the wind is blowing or when they are running, the vest stays in tact and keeps them warm.  I love the drawstring toggles on each of the sides since Pugs tend to have girthy chest but skinny waist.  This makes the vest look more fitted for them and keep the warmth in.  Whenever Brownie lifts his leg to pee, the bottom and sides of the vest don’t flap around.  This rain vest jacket is just the best!  Brownie is definitely more willing to go outside for walks.  He doesn’t like to go otside if it is cold, wet or raining.  The hubby usually is not a huge fan of me dressing up the Pugs but even he loves this rain vest. He keeps asking me when Porky’s going to get his size xl rain vest!

More good news…this rain vest just went on sale for $39.99!  Yippy!

It’s 30 degrees in the morning and freezing…Brownie was so excited to wear his new rain vest.  He actually wanted to go outside!

Brownie got some rain on his vest but didn’t seem to mind at all.

Yup he’s peeing.

Since Porky was cold and did not have his size XL yet, I put on his Tobey Lilysweats hoodie. As you can tell, he’s put on some winter weight.
