I-i-i-i-t-s MACY!

Our youngest son and his girlfriend came here for Thanksgiving last week and they brought her dog, Macy with them as well. She was rescued just recently, and is learning the ins and outs of belonging to someone. Macy is probably a Miniature Pinscher and Chihuahua mix and had definite opinions about the various family members. Our cat had definite opinions about her!

Michele mentioned she had not been able to find a coat that fits Macy. She is longer than a chihuahua but more slender than medium sized dogs. So I figured, who better than “You’re Getting Warmer” to custom tailor a coat for a poor little dog who lives in Michigan and comes in shivering from every outdoor adventure!

Macy hated the measuring and fitting process. The paper pattern stage was the worst, but even the fleece fitting sessions made her try to run away. But despite her best efforts, the coat was finished–including her very own youregettingwarmer.com label sewn into the neckline. And with her mom being a photography major and me wanting  to show off our latest creation, we had to have a photo! And h-e-r-e it is!

Isn’t she stylish? We may just have to come up with a new line of fashion accessories for min-pin-hauhaus (my name for her breed) and name the line (what else?) Macy’s! Or maybe not…I talked to her agent who said that Macy really doesn’t see modeling in her future. What a loss…



About Linda

I am a learner. A teacher. A questioner. A lover of nature and of the big picture of life. Why and how and what if are questions that I constantly ask, since I am too lazy to do things the hard way and too out-of-the-box to do them the way they have always been done! I love growing things, building things and helping people define and reach their goals.

    Cool addition! Keep that paper pattern and then you can adjust it to other dogs.

    I totally love it!!!! 🙂 Looks great (though poor Macy seems camera shy). You should definitely start adding these to your line. Too many people buy these for their dogs and they should all have an original!

    How cute! Neat idea. How about my cat?
