Dog coats

Three lovely dog coats from the 1950s - I especially like the yellow coat on the terrier on the left (or "Model B" as his owner has rather unimaginatively called him). It's worked in K2 P2 rib with cosy knitted lapels that wouldn't look out of place on a sweater.

Note the tension in the lady's hands, as if all three dogs are seconds away from leaping as one savage beast towards the photographer and lunging for his throat. Or his sandwiches.
