Furry Fashion

Dogs around Bend are getting ready for winter by sporting vests and bandanas. As the temperatures drop, humans and our furry friends put on extra layers. . It’s important to do this safely as dogs can overheat.

The Broadside: What is your opinion on dogs and fashionable pieces of clothing?

Marco Mazariegos, a student at COCC says, “As a dog person, I am a big fan of dressing my furry companion up in all sorts of attire. I have an array of bandanas which I custom made from various fabrics for unique patterns, a jacket and several backpacks for my own dog.”

When asked why, he said, “Obviously jackets keep him warm. Bandanas are kind of a little stylish thing. But also he uses his backpack to carry both his own food and water when we’re on long hikes.” … “He’s kind of utility, and fashion I guess for him.”

According to the American Kennel Club, large dogs with thick, dense coats such as Huskies, Shiba Inus and golden retrievers are more equipped to handle the cold while dogs with short hair and/or are small in size may need to bundle up if going out in the cold.
