So my dog actually had her surgery in summer! But her hair is slow to grow back. I read a corgi board (she is part corgi) and some people were reporting up to a year before the coat coming back!

So I looked at leg warmers but they seem to be geared towards small dogs and not due to surgery. This is her hind leg so would need something that wouldn't hinder her bathroom business.

Any ideas on how to keep her thigh/legs warm during walks and at home at night?

Oh and she is a medium sized dog, around 38 lbs or so.

You can find dog snowsuits and outfits with full pants - they're adorable! Just one example:

As it gets colder you may find the rate at which the hair grows back will increase, also.

Oh that might be a good idea but she definitely would be a hard fit, her body length is that of a much bigger dog (she is very long), her legs are short for her length. Even if I had to cut off the bottom of the legs for a larger dog, it might work.

Oh and actually one site recommended this for long dogs!

This is a Canadian site, but I'm sure you could find similar in the states. The jammies are custom made, so weird dimensions not a problem!

I know I've seen pics of friends' dogs in the US who had pjs on - they're popular in greyhound circles especially. This reminds me I've been meaning to get a set for Mona.

aww. We usually put a jacket thing on my beagle in the winter but after seeing these full sized things, we may buy one for him. My corgi mix is the one that loves loves snow and doesn't seem to get cold... well before her surgery that is. My beagle sometimes gets cold and my husband ends up carrying him home if they go for a walk in the winter.

Make sure your pups wear boots in the snow, it can compact between the paws and cause slices not visible to the naked eye, it's pretty painful... add road salt and ouch!
