Opportunities for trying new stuff comes our way ALL THE TIME. Part of this is Mommy #2's persistence, and part of this is the BLOG. We have some visibility and we are. . . how to say this without sounding too SMUG . . . ADORABLE!
So WE were approached by #ChewyInfluencers about an opportunity to try some of the new PET APPAREL by Frisco. Why not, we thought. Afterall, the SUMMER DRESS was a success. This time we decided to try a HOODIE. It was the most logical since despite the cooling down of our weather, it does not get so cool here that we need heavy JACKETS. Plus, we already have more sweaters than we can wear AND some jammies that we only wear at Christmas. For these reasons, we decided on the FRISCO French Terry Heather Lightweight Hoodie in PINK
I wanted it SOOOOOOO BAD. But Mommy looked at the sizing and took our measurements and . . . there was no size that was a good fit for a PUG princess. Here is the Size Chart
As you can see in the last column, there is no PUG! Why such a blatant discrimination? Well, let's break this down -
- MY length is 14" and that is X-Small
- MY neck is 18" and that is X-Large
- My chest is 20" and that is a MEDIUM
So needless to say, Molly got the FRISCO French Terry Heather lightweight Hoodie in Pink
because as a Maltese Mix, she is a SMALL. Her Body length is a problem though as she is 16" long. That is between a MEDIUM and a LARGE and we knew neither would fit. Well, in hindsight, maybe the MEDIUM would have been better if only for coverage.
We waited an excruciating WEEK for the order to be delivered. I apologize to Ms Kristin and Ms Natalie of Chewy.com because I think I was becoming a PEST asking about it every couple of days. They were so good to me, though. Never once did they respond with SARCASM. I love them. They embody Chewy.com
service - which we ALL know is THROUGH-THE-ROOF fantastic. In ONE WEEK exactly the box arrived. Needless to say, we LEAPT with excitement when we heard the GOODY MOBILE drive away leaving a CHEWY.COM
This is the hoodie PRE-TRY-ON. Isn't it beautiful? It is just as described - PINK, lightweight and soft. The construction is superb, not a thread broken or showing. Really nice. Mommy is a sewer so she checks all that stuff out. The really nice feature on this hoodie is the Velcro at the neck. Even though it is made to fit a certain neck size, it gives one a little extra room to work with when putting it on. And Molly really does not like her eyes covered under any circumstances so the Velcro helped speed up the PUTTING-ON process.
As you can tell from the photo, the HOODIE fits Molly to a tee. It is comfortable around her chest and neck. The hood, which she hates having on, lends a nice touch of style. She can go all Mark Zuckerberg (early days) in it by adding some cargo shorts and a tee shirt. Or she can just fulfil her Cali-gurl dream and cart it along to the beach for when the late afternoon fog rolls in. It is THAT versatile.
It was a coolish morning when the HOODIE arrived so Molly ended up wearing the HOODIE all morning until it warmed up. It looked very good on her and did not shift or ride up. It is too short - it hits her mid-back rather than top of her tail-end - but that is a pretty minor thing. She has roomier clothing that gets all twisted around on her because she id so skinny. With the weather getting breezy and cool, she will get a lot of wear out of this HOODIE. And it being pink makes it the PAWfect accessory for OCTOBER IS BREAST CANCER AWARENESS MONTH
We give this item the
Because other than it not being PUGable and a little short on length for the MIX to Molly's MALTESE, it is a top-notch clothing item that will wear well and look good for a long time.
