Is dog clothing really necessary?

In this edition of Dog Days, we seek the answer to the common question, ‘Is dog clothing really necessary?’ Having a small dog, I buy clothing to keep her warm on walks outside during the cold winter months. When my husband first met my dog he asked, “Is the pink, puffy jacket really necessary?” The answer is yes! Minus the pink and puffy, many dogs need to be bundled up during Seattle’s cold weather.
