‘Tis the season for cold weather, snow, and — you guessed it — even more snow. Unfortunately for Wookie, my rescue dog from Hopeful Hearts, he was not blessed with a full body of thick, luscious hair. He takes after his mom (me). Luckily for Wookie, Canada Pooch has arrived on the pet apparel scene.
Canada Pooch, designed by pet mom Jacqueline Prehogan, is based in Toronto, so they know a little something about our brutal winters and whatever else Mother Nature feels like throwing our way. You can have your ice cream cake and eat it too, though, because not only are their jackets designed for Canadian winters but they also look amazing. It doesn’t hurt that their quality assurance team consists of one puggle, two poodles, and a lab.
When Wookie’s Winter Wilderness Jacket arrived in the mail it was like Christmas. The first thing I noticed was the quality. Bar none, it’s the best doggy coat I’ve ever laid my eyes on. I might have had to stop myself from trying to squeeze my not-so-svelte body into it. Wookie, on the other hand, was not so excited and looked at the jacket wearily, knowing what was coming next. His first and only experience with any type of doggie wear ended up with him in a monkey suit. Literally. It was for Halloween, okay?
Nonetheless, Wookie humored me. Awkwardly.
However after walking around in his new coat for a few minutes, Wookie’s super model side came out in full force and he was prancing around like a furry Cindy Crawford. I think he realized that not only did he not look like a monkey — he actually looked good.
My partner in crime and I have discussed getting winter wear for our pooches for over two years now, but it always ends with the same arguement: everything we found was way too expensive for our Kraft Dinner budget, too girlie for our male dogs, really ugly, or just simply useless for the harsh weather we get.
But the tides have turned, folks. Once he saw Wookie in his adorable (yet manly & rugged!) coat and found out how reasonably priced they are, he changed his tune.
Suffice it to say, we’ll be picking up a second one this weekend for our other dog, Halladay.
If you’ve been looking for a coat that is not only great looking, reasonably priced and amazing quality — look no further. Visit Canada Pooch and get your furry friend bundled up for the holidays. If your dog could talk, he would be asking for a Winter Wilderness Jacket for Christmas.
Canada Pooch jackets are available at Global Pet Foods in Hintonburg and Kanata
