While our Central Texas winter has been mostly mild this year, we've had a few occasions where the temperatures got down pretty low (for us). And of course, the weather here can never seem to make up its mind. You can be sweating in 80 degree weather one moment and freezing in the 30's the next.
Shiner has a few sweaters and dog shirts. To be honest, I don't often come across dog clothing in the stores that will actually fit her comfortably. Some of the sweaters she has now fit her snugly and don't leave too much room to breath, if you will.
We recently discovered Gold Paw Series Stretch Fleece and decided to give it a try. Shiner selected a beautiful Fuchsia colored Fleece. When it arrived, I was amazed by how soft it is. It feels like velvet!
The Gold Paw Series Fleece is super stretchy, which I absolutely love. Perfect for dogs who are active and for dogs who are lounging around the house. It's important to stay comfortable after all, right?

It's also extremely lightweight making it easy to pack along for trips. Or if you live in Texas and the weather suddenly changes (hey, it's possible here), you can easily put it on or take it off your dog and stick it in your purse or backpack. It's not a bulky item.
Shiner has been wearing her fuchsia Gold Paw Series Fleece when it's chilly outside and I haven't noticed her feeling too cold. Sometimes if it's very cold outdoors, she won't want to be outside for long. She just wants to do her business and rush back in the house. It seems like she's happier to be outdoors longer with her Fleece on though.
Because the material of the Gold Paw Series Stretch Fleece is super stretchy, many dogs do well with a size smaller than their regular size. I do believe Shiner could have gone down a size but I still think it fits well. Just something to keep in mind if you order one for your dog!
Speaking of which, you can browse Gold Paw Series' website for their Fleece and other clothing products for your dog HERE. Oh and by the way - they also sell Stretch Fleece for cats! If you have an outdoorsy adventure cat or a hairless cat, I think these would be purrfect for them.
If you're looking for a way to keep your dog warm in the winter, we highly recommend checking out Gold Paw Series. Both fashionable with many colors and patterns available and functional, your dog will thank you!
