Belle's New Coat

  This is Belle. She is Mom and Dad's new Border Collie who's recently had to have surgery on her shoulder for a bone growth in her shoulder that she developed from birth.  Because of the surgery, they shaved a huge amount of her fur from her shoulder, side and back leaving her skin exposed to the elements when out walking in this winter weather.  So her mom decided to sew her a new coat out of fleece remnants and I thought I would share it as I think it's too cute!!

   She found the tutorial for the coat on utube and it was super quick and easy to make.  Best of all she doesn't seem to mind it at all.
   So until her coat grows back, or spring comes (whichever comes first) she'll be sportin this new outerwear on her daily walks.

Isn't she cute ! It's -7 today and the wind is blowing . Belle needs her coat. Thanks for showing this I will have to make another as it gets wet when the weather warms up and the snow melts.
