While out walking most evenings, we used to encounter a pack of Greyhounds, former racing dogs that had been rescued and fostered by an agency here in Orange County. As the evenings grew cooler, we'd eventually see their svelte frames walking towards us, blanketed with little custom coats to keep them warm. These were not particularly designed to be fashionable, but I always marveled at how elegant these beautiful dogs looked and particularly so as they paraded past in their colorful, wool coats.
Skipping around Etsy this past week, I spotted a shop- Acme Couture- that makes custom dog coats- many fashioned out of Pendleton type blankets with colorful tribal designs. They made me think of our little four-legged friends we used to meet up with while walking the old neighborhood.
Be sure to stop by the shop for a peek at their design portfolio. They custom make coats in all different styles and sizes. Our old boy rarely heads outside these days, but I'm thinking of ordering up that purple beanie below to help Dylan keep his ears warm on cold mornings.
