roeffel's new coat!

My friend in Belgium, Annemie, has a beautiful west highland terrier called Roeffel. It's been a cold winter over there, so I made a crocheted coat for Roeffie, so he could keep warm on his walks. Here is Roeffel, wearing his new coat! It fits nice and snug around the neck and front legs, and is really warm, as it's crocheted in softest merino wool.

It's red, with two pockets, one with the letter "R" and on the other side, one with a little West Highland White Terrier. These are knitted into the design.

You'd never guess how old Roeffel is - he's 14!!! Isn't he just beautiful! So handsome and so SWEET.

PS let me know if you'd like to know more about my dog coats - they're made of superfine, machine washable, pure Australian merino wool, naturally water-resistant and soil-resistant. I make to order and mail anywhere on the planet. I made one for my old dog Frankie, and I'll make another for Hamish if he ever stands still enough to measure!

Here is Frankie in his coat, about 2007. I made it because he had a back injury and he needed to stay warm as he got older, with his arthritis etc.
