The rectangulation

seems to have run its course and to be having the effect on certain blogees that installations of dismembered dolls, pubic hair and the top off an old babies’ bottle has on me. So instead of a rectangle here is a picture of Dylan clearing the water jump even in spite of the restrictions imposed by the silly coat he’s been made to wear.

    Having spent a while this morning trying to capture a photo of Rudi in the white stuff (and his mac), I can truly appreciate this snap!

    Well done both.

    Dylan looks as if he is taking part in a Royal Marines training exercise.

    Great coat. 😉

    He was on his way back from pheasant bothering and had some hundreds of yards to make up : )

    He’s got a Barbour even if I have to scruff about in Anorak at Millets Camping ; )

    Those ears act as wings – not leaping so much as taking off!

    A fantastic pic.

    Oh….there’s my boy! I’ve missed him these past several days. He looks handsome in the coat, and green is definitely his color. Drzl hates her coat and spend half her time outside trying to rip it off. But it is below 0 with the windchill factor, so no coat….no outside running. My friend has a tiny dachshound who “had” a little coat for running about in the snow. But their German Shepherd who was playing with the dachshound, stared at the coat and then ripped it right off. He ran away with it, and to this day they have not been able to locate it. What does go through their heads????

    All dogs by religion are naturists and the imposition of coats, by their human oppressors, disgusts all other dogs. The Gernan Shepherd the ‘Soldiers’ of the species have a duty to rip these signs of oppression off at any given opportunity and destroy them.

    Hope this helps! 🙂

    Oliie still manages to run and jump with his coat on but when I first strap it round him he acts like he’s got a baboon on his back!!

    Happy Christmas to everyone here. xxxxxxxx

    And to you Jan x

    (nb: I find Dylan makes no protest at the coat if it comes straight off the radiator ; )

  11. Jan says:

    I will have to try thzt one ! 🙂

    Dylan looks lovely in his coat, tell him. 🙂

  12. Patty says:

    Ohhhh, now I get it! The German Shepherd was simply doing his job. Giving the little dachshound a little help in freeing him from the encumbrance. Thanks for that bit of doggie psychology, Daftburger!! 🙂

  13. Patty says:

    Gee, I’ll have to put Drzl’s coat near the woodstove before she goes out. Maybe that will help. We’re in the process of purchasing her a “dog cave” to sleep in now…..the interior is completely lined in sheepskin. She seems to get very cold at night, and manages to slither her way from the foot of the bed up to the pillows. We like to sleep in a cool house, but she apparently does not….hence, the dog cave. 🙂 And a Very Merry Christmas and Prosperous and Happy New Year to all you dear people!!!

  14. Patty says:

    Stephen, if I may ask, does Dylan’s lovely coat cover his belly? My husband feels the dogs are still cold because the coats only cover their backs. Do you know of any reason why they’re made with the bellies still uncovered?? Thanks!

  15. Stephen Foster says:

    Not quite exactly, but in fact it goes most of the way round him because it’s Ollie’s old coat and therefore too big for Dylan. He only really needs it for exceptionally cold days or a turn round the block – he warms himself up in pretty short order once he gets into the field with all the other dogs… ; )

    Merry Christmas & all the best for the New Year to you and yours, Patty.
