Today's autumn-inspired feature (brought to you by the letter "W"!) needs little introduction - here on the East Coast we only wait all year for sweater weather! (if only Oscar were as big a fan as I am of accessorizing - winter would see him wrapped up in neck scarves like a Siberian prince!)
*Before one makes a crack about toggle-jackets for creatures without the thumbs to work them, the Beast and I would like to remind everyone that not all canine clothing is silly and superfluous - there are a legitimate number of dogs out there with natural coats not befitting for their environment, and for these pups, a barrier against the elements, or simple added layer of warmth, can mean the difference between an uncomfortable dash around the block or a more pleasant, extended stroll (and when it comes to the deep dark depths of winter, every extra minute in the sunshine and fresh air helps). So if your companion is a sleek-coated, low body fat, sensitive soul, don't hesitate to help a critter out - zip, button or velcro him or her up into some Woolly Wear and get outside!
