Feel the need to share with you what's hip and happening on the fashion scene here in London Town. What's hot to trot for Dogs. The One. The Only. Autumn 2008 Fashion "Must Have Item" And yes! I have it already.

See. Being a dog about town, I appointed my own Couturier. The most fabulous and famous Mrs.Snitchybug of Snitchbug Dog Designs.Butchy and Snickers Momma. And my own stylist, Momi Square. Came up with a blinding raincoat for me. Poor Mrs. Snitchybug. Sigh. Mom's exacting. My coat needed pockets, maybe two. Why? For me to carry Mom's mobile and keys! Be piped with a contrasting colour . . . mmm, maybe red , with a fun lining material . . .waterproof . . .and an initial like they have on those American Baseball Jackets....blah, blah,blah, you know how she prattles on . . the list was endless. My involvement was the most impawtent of course. Must be Orange. I'm a vision in orange. It's the only colour I'll wear.My Favourite colour (and my bootiful friend Asta's too) Must be a city dog thing. Do your own colour personality test below.

What Your Favorite Color Orange Says About You:

Joyful Enthusiastic Optimistic Outgoing Accepting Confident Loud Unruly Impulsive

Back to my raincoat. Me and Momi finally chose everything and the lining with the printed with Mini Me's all over. Neat huh? Using every inch of my very vital statistics Mrs Snitchybug stitched my coat just for me. Probably wearing a pair of sunglasses. Might need to issue doggles to playmates and passing pals when I'm out in it too, teehee!

Mr. UPS delivered it last week. I howled with excitement. Smelt of my pals Butchy and Snickers - especially of the fit Miss Snickers who had tried it on for size. I'll never be able to let Momi wash it in case her smell goes down the plughole. Now take a look see at the detail. Lined pockets. Matching orange Velcro to hold the pocket flaps down so Momi's keys don't jump out as I'm high tailing it. Expanding pocket sides. All that piping. It's a work of art. Isn't she clever? Pawsome. It fit's a dream. Made to measure. Looks the dogs.

Initial E for 'ere I am- 'ere comes Eric. As if you'd miss me in this!

Pannier type pockets

Copies will be seen on every dogwalk show this Autumn. Go visit my pals Butchy and Snickers and their Mamma. She makes all manner of doglightful clothes. Get her to make you a coat too. Just remember you saw it here first.
On me Eric Square. Trend Setter Extraordinaire.

I love my new coat Mrs Snitchybug and you too!!!! It's rocking!! City slick!! WICKED!!! Can you see? I'm yelling you my biggest best big thank you.

Bloggies. Creep a bit closer to the pooter 'cos I got to whisker my secret to only you. Um . . I er . . I . . .dogtest rain. Refuse to go out in it. Or I go outside, find it's raining then won't budge.Throw my stuffies out of my crate! Won't walk at all. Mom is sure I'm going to venture out when it's raining now I have a special coat for protection. Mmmmm. What dog knows? Stranger things have happened. I'll keep you blogged.

Jackson said...

Wow dude, you look stylin'! I've already got a rather smart red coat from team Snitchybug. I hope you don't think red is too girly for me? I saw Asta wearing hers and just had to have one the same! J x

Dewey Dewster said...

Ya know ya can use it fer sure on Halloween (my birthday, in case ya wondered)...just add a green stem and yer a pumpkin fer sure.... Butchie and Snickers Mom did a pawsome job on the rain coat and you did pawsome job reportin' on the creation of such a unique and fashionable creation.....I hope ta see ya on the fashion runway at Westminster or in yer case Crufts...

Maggie & Mitch said...

You are one stylin' dude, Eric! Orange is DEFINITELY your color! You'll be a showstopper in that everywhere you go! My denim coat was made by Butchy and Snickers mom and I just LOVE it!

Love ya lots,
Maggie and Mitch

Jake of Florida said...

Pawsome doesn't begin to capture the brilliant splendor of your stylin' couture raincoat. We love it. Why, we ask, have our humans not thought to ask Ms. Snickers to fashion something for us, when rain is the common denominator every freakin' afternoon here in South Florida.

You are so cool. We are proud to know you, Mr. Fashionable Square Dog!!!

Jake and Just Harry

Butchy & Snickers said...

Oh Eric,
You look so pawtabulous in your new raincoat! We knew you would though since it's your favorite color. We hope you enjoy the special pockets. We had Mama add those to our new raincoats too. Gee, next time you go walking in your raincoat, all of the girl dogs will be chasing you, tee hee!
Luv & Wirey Hugs!
Butchy & Snickers

Lorenza said...

Hi, Eric!
You new raincoat is pawesome! You look great! Yes, orange is your color!
I am sure you will got out happily when it rains!

Kisses and hugs

Petey said...

Hi Eric,

You are quite the studmuffin in your new raincoat. The pride of Saville Row, to be sure! I have a summer raincoat and a winter raincoat (lined in fleece) but the summer one has a HOOD which I absolutely refuse to wear. Better that my golden locks get soaked. If it's a drizzle, I'm all for it - but real rain? Forget it!

Wishing you sunny skies!

Your pal,


Scruffy, Lacie and Stanley's Place said...

Let us get this straight...ya got a raincoat and you won't go out in the rain???

Makes about as much sense as Scruffy does...must be a WFT thing.....

That coat is BOOTIFUL....and what are ya goin' to keep in the pockets??? Coins???? um...I could guess other things....Scruffy and Babystan have some suggestions...none of them good....

Did ya have a good holiday???

We missed ya Eric!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Blue said...

My, what a very smart dude you are, you'll brighten any grey wet day in that raincoat.
And, we'll certainly see you coming too!

Pats & pets

PS - I think it would look equally good in blue, but I'm bound to think that aren't I?

Noah the Airedale said...

Simba said...

What a great coat, your Mum is so clever. Now they can even see you in the dark.

William Tell said...

Yes, orange is the perfect color for you, and you look absolutely dashing in your new raincoat. I admire the pockets, though I know in my heart Mom would never trust ME to carry her keys. Go figure.

Happy Tails,
William Tell

Ooh la sure look stunning in you're definitely going to be a spot on!

Good evening eric.
An orange raincoat is suited very colorfully.
And, it is a wonderful color seen the dark.
The mark and the pocket of E are also practicable. :)

Chef said...

Honestly Eric, you are a metrochien if I ever saw one! Supersharp! B&S's Mom has golden hands, doesn't she? ... I think you'll pray for rain now that you have that coat just so you can show it off! I'm also pretty impressed that it was designed to carry your Mommy's stuff. How clever! Wear it well.


Mr. T-Bone Beasley said...

Oooooooo...Eric! You are a vision in orange! The jacket looks perfect on you! You are such a trend setter!

What will you bring to the world next? I think you should bring in waterproof boots to go with the jacket! My human want me to get soe of those 'cause the ground is so hot out here...

Mr. T-Bone Beasley

Lenny said...

Eric, you are a great model and you look fantastic in your new coat. You have an excellent fashion sense!

Hey, did you know the fashion designer Vivienne Westwood has a WFT?

Your friend, Lenny

Stanley said...

That last photo of you CRACKED ME UP BIG TIME, Eric! If you won't go out in the rain in that gorgeous coat, then I'm betting you won't go out in the rain EVER!

Maybe that coat will scare the clouds out of the sky!

Goober love & smooches,
