Snickers and the yellow rain slicker

Captain's Log, Stardate 01.21.2010

I tweeted a couple weeks ago about taking my dog walking in the rain with her yellow rain slicker, and a bunch of you guys asked about it, incredulous.

Oh ye of little faith.

The truth is, Snickers is not a water dog. She hates getting wet. She will shy away from sprinklers and hoses. Giving her a bath is a two-person job and she shivers and has her tail between her legs the entire time.

I also am not that fond of wet dog smell.

So when I was visiting my friend Cheryl Wyatt in Illinois, we went to a store called Rural King, and I got this cute doggie rain slicker.

It works perfectly--it keeps the rain off her back and part of her head, and she smells much less when we're back from our walk.

What do you guys think?


  1. I think she looks adorable if unhappy. It is very practical, and I wish my mangy mutt would wear one, he refuses coats or boots of any kind yet gets mad when he gets wet or gets salt on his paws. It is more about the practical than the fashion, I get it. With you on the eau de wet dog.

  2. LOL She's actually unhappy because we just came back from a walk and she's cold, wet, and wants her dinner, but I made her stay in the garage so I could run in, get my camera, and shoot pictures of her! Poor pooch.

  3. Hi Camy:

    Those pictures are so funny. I immediately knew what the dog was thinking: “And I thought it was only mad dogs and Englishmen who didn’t have the sense to come out of the rain!”


  4. Rural King, one of hubs favorite browsing stores when he's at drill.

    Don't blame you for not wanting the wet dog smell. I don't like it either. The slicker is cute, even if you had to fly to IL to get it! LOL!

  5. Juju--thanks! Er...Snickers says thanks. :)


    Winter--I loved Rural King! OMG it was amazing!

  6. Love it. She looks like a fire fighter dog. Off to go save some people.
    And just so you know, I had to type in "mampire" to get my comment verified. That should be a real word.

  7. ROFL!!! Wendy your comment cracked me up!

  8. I love what Vince said. LOL She does look unhappy but the coat does help keep the rain from her coat and the wet doggy smell down.

    I have cats and you don't have to walk them that goodness. When they do get wet I just towel them dry.

  9. In her "I can't stand getting wet" shtick, Snicker is a lot like a cat!

  10. That looks so cute, and dry. Though I guess the feet still get muddy.

  11. Yes, her feet unfortunately do get really muddy. Yuck! Usually I try to make her walk through a water puddle to get some of the mud off before we get home!

No Cold Bums toilet seat cover

Captain's Log, Stardate 08.22.2008 I actually wrote out my pattern! I was getting a lot of hits on my infamous toilet seat cover , and I wanted to make a new one with “improvements,” so I paid attention and wrote things down as I made the new one. This was originally based off the Potty Mouth toilet cover , but I altered it to fit over the seat instead of the lid. Yarn: any worsted weight yarn, about 120 yards (this is a really tight number, I used exactly 118 yards. My suggestion is to make sure you have about 130 yards.) I suggest using acrylic yarn because you’re going to be washing this often. Needle: I used US 8, but you can use whatever needle size is recommended by the yarn you’re using. Gauge: Not that important. Mine was 4 sts/1 inch in garter stitch. 6 buttons (I used some leftover shell buttons I had in my stash) tapestry needle Crochet hook (optional) Cover: Using a provisional cast on, cast on 12 stitches. Work in garter st until liner measures
