My Airedale Coat

Mom has been very busy lately working on a new project for me - customizing my new denim coat! Now don't get me wrong - Butchy and Snicker's mom did an awesome job - actually mom says Linda did all the hard work and she gets to have all the fun! It's been a few days now and the project is finally complete and ready for me to show off.
I need to step back for a moment. We did have 20 degree temps here one morning and I did get to sport my new coat without the new decorations but no one was walking but me, mom and dad so I didn't really get to style and show it off :-(
Next time will be different!

Here's one side of it:

This picture was taken before we left the house. Do you see the resemblance? hehehe

And here's the other side:

I like this side better. This side took mom longer to applique. We didn't leave the driveway as it's 50 degrees here today! So off the coat will come and we'll save it for a cooler day. Sooner or later the temps have to get cold, right?! It's January!

Until next time................



  1. Oh my gosh Maggie! Your coat is so very kewl now!!! Your Mama did an excellent job on the applique. Now you have our Mama's head spinning. She says she should make us on our coats. She has always been wanting to make a quilt hanging of our portraits. But she says the coat pictures would go much faster, hehehehe! Thanks for the great idea!!
    Luv & Wirey Hugs!

  9. Hey, that's a great idea!~ I love the detailing your Mommy did!!! I wonder if my mommy can do something like that for me? Nah, she's not very talented....


  10. Wow, that is such a cool coat. If my mom was cool like yours, maybe I would have some neat clothes!

    Lots of love,

  11. Oooh Maggie, you look so purrrrdy in your new coat. Aren't you lucky!! The appliques look so beautiful, you should really have a close-up too for us to see.

    If you really wanna use your coat, you should come to Vancouver.. we're having some freakishly cold weather lately!! Mum went up into the mountains today to go snowboarding (without me.. grr) and it was only 4 degrees. Luckily the winds were light or else Mum would have needed your doggy coat too, hehe!!


  12. I LOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOVE your coat Maggie, I just LOOOOOOOOVE it. Of course, Linda did a great job, but what your mom put on there was just tooooo cute!!! Looks so much like you! I wish my mum was half as talented as your mom...
