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.

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.
