Everyone loves a new wardrobe, and this fall there are plenty of opportunities to shop for a new "look." Whether the new duds function to keep the cold or snow out, to protect the paws from ice and rock salt or just to be way cool, nothing is better than a new wardrobe.
We searched the web to come up with a fall/winter buying guide to 2001 fashion. Although most are for dogs, we've included some fall fashions for birds and cats. Try on these ideas:
Golf Suit. A golf suit is always fitting for the fall. Whether running across the greens or walking down the street, this tribute to golf comes in a Burberry plaid pattern, $19.99 from www.maddogdesigns.com.
