Winter is coming. It may not seem like it what with triple digit weather but it is on its way. That or I made Mr. N suffer through modeling a fleece in August for nothing.
|This is Mr. N’s you made me wear fleece in August face|
Several of you have commented on the tartan fleece that Mr. N sometimes wears. It’s from Gold Paw, a local company which also makes harnesses and rain coats and other items. To celebrate our blogiversary, we’ll be giving away a solid color fleece so your dog can dress like Mr. N! He gets more compliments on his wardrobe than I do.
While Mr. N has many fripperies (like his dinosaur hoodie for example), I find myself reaching for his Gold Paw fleece quite often. It’s quite stretchy so it doesn’t impede his movement at all. The fleece is light and warm (fall-weight) and good for layering under his rain coat. Mr. N gets cold pretty easily (he was shivering yesterday after playing in the river and it was 90 degrees) due to having little body fat and having a single coat. So it’s nice having something that I can stuff in my purse just in case.
It washes nicely and dries fast. I’ll wash it the night before and it’s usually ready to go the next morning. I haven’t tried putting it in the dryer but the care instructions say it can tumble dry low.
The fleece comes in sizes ranging from two (Chihuahua puppy) to 30 (Great Dane), according to their sizing chart. Mr. N wears an eight for reference. The solid color fleeces are made with recycled polyester and spandex and made in the USA. Some are even made in Oregon!
The print fleece is not as stretchy as the solid colors. They sent us a size eight and ten (which is what he wears in the print fleeces) and the ten looks like a robe on him. Gold Paw suggests sizing down. He is wearing the eggplant fleece in this photo and marine blue in the others (it also comes in camel, grass, fuchsia, red pumpkin, eucalyptus, robin egg, blue, black and sunflower yellow).
