I have a really stupid..funny..question, what really should we wear on our boxers during cold weather???  I live in Pennsylvania.  Our summers can get up to high 90s, our winters run around 20's with a few exceptional days in the negatives.  Right now, mid-Sept, we go from 70ish weather in the afternoon to 40s in the morning hours.  Jaxon has made it clear he does not like the cold.  He'll pee on the sidewalk in the morning rather than go into the cold grass...I personally don't blame him! haha  I have a hoodie for him which he is quickly outgrowing.  If it is below 60 degrees I wear it on him when we go out.  I love the way it's made because it has long front sleeves and velcro closure the whole way down under his belly.  It is short enough underneath that it doesn't get in his way to pee!  Anyhow..I'm shopping online with the sites Liz posted and also a few I found, the "coats" are more just decorative and made more for females.  I found a few hoodies that I like but I also found these fleece jackets.  The fleece jackets cover only the top and velcro around the neck and around the chest sort of how a harness would fasten.  They cover nothing underneath and have no leg coverage.  Do they really just need their backs covered in cold weather or should I look for leg coverage too?  I wouldn't be so questioning, but a lot that I find that I like and think would hold up are $50-60.  I'm not wearing them on him to be cutsie, just he goes with us a lot and needs to be covered.  Thanks a lot!  By the way..here's the site I'm on at the moment..

I agree..most of the doggie "models" are toy breeds...the boxer specific site that Liz posted only had large and extra large clothing...too big to Jaxon yet..but I did find a few I'd get once he's old enough!  Has anyone seen the wiggle butt apparel???? LOVE IT!

I love both those coats on those sites.  My husband...gotta love him...went shopping today with his dad for "guy stuff".  He came home with a doggie septic tank thing and a new woolrich coat for Jaxon!  He must have read my mind!  We'll see how this new one works out.

Of course his dad thought he was hysterical! lol
