Rain Ponchos For The Pooch

We have become aware of a somewhat crazy trend in the rainwear industry. People have been purchasing rain ponchos for their dogs. The last time we checked, a lot of people are braving the elements by not buying rain ponchos for themselves, yet dogs in rain ponchos are becoming more and more common. I actually grabbed a hold of this story from a Twitter post which I cannot locate at the moment, so will just link our tweet about it: Twitter Doggie Rain Poncho. I laughed at the little doggie picture for about 10 minutes. The little hood for the dog, and the confused look on every dog’s face that has on a rain poncho is by far the best part of this little dog wear trend. A close second goes to the little flap for the dog’s tail to stick out of.

"Help me"

Now the thing that I don’t understand is why worry about a rain poncho for your dog? Dogs seem to not mind the rain half as much as cats do. If a dog gets caught outside in the rain he might wander over to the door and bark a time or two, but he’s not really in a panicked state to get inside the house. A cat is an entirely different story. If a cat gets a single drop of water on his body, it ruins his day, and he freaks out like he or she is about to be thrown into the middle of the ocean. Now are we recommending that pet companies start creating rain ponchos for house cats? Uh.. no. But honestly one for a cat makes a lot more sense than a rain poncho for a dog. We aren’t complaining though, stories and pictures like the one to the left are always funny for us to find. It even started up a brief conversation of “Would this somehow be feasible for us to do?” The answer is no, but it was at least a fun conversation for us to talk through. Never in my life did I think I would be writing blog posts about the rain poncho, let alone rain ponchos for pets.

What will people think of next? I’m going to be on the lookout for Dog and cat umbrellas in the near future.

Actually, I once had a dog that really hated the rain. We lived in an apartment when he was a pup and walked him, with an umbrella in the rain, so he could do his business. As a result of the rain protection as a little 5 lb. pup, he grew up into a 110 lb. dog who wished they made these ponchos in his size!

110 pounds!?!? You might as well buy him a human poncho!
