Tulsa ladies create fancy coats for dogs

Considering all they give us, our dogs deserve a nice outfit every once in a while, don't think?

News on 6 reporter Rick Wells has found two former middle school teachers who scour thrift shops for coats they can turn into wearable art for dogs.

Pam Smucker and Kathleen Gilbreath design and make fancy coats and neckwear for dogs.

Pam Smucker: "We turn it into something unique." Yes they do. They take people coats and turn them into apparel for dogs. Kathleen was working on one Friday morning. "It was a coat before, I've re-stitched it up." It was just a plain brown coat and when they've finished, added fringe and buttons, it will be a one of a kind coat.

The ladies shop the thrift stores for coats they think might look good on a dog. The coats must be taken apart and cut down to fit dogs large and small, then stiched back together.

A little girl's pink jacket that cost 50 bucks new, has become an outfit they call classic caplet. But it's more than a coat it is really art.

The first one they ever made was was Pam Smucker's mother's Hudson Bay wool coat. They reworked it and decorated it and now it's a handsome jacket for her greyhound Tanya to wear on cool days.

Does she like it? I think so, looks like a big smile to me.

The ladies have a showing of their fancy dog wear Saturday at the Dog Dish store in the Farm Shopping Center.
