Dogs who comfort pain need pajamas too

Actually this is an email I received from Nancy at “Pawsforcomfort”, who contacted me a while ago about dog pajamas  at my site for her xolo dogs.  I think one of them was allergic to cotton.  For that reason and the fact that I myself have fibromyalgia, I wanted everyone to know what these wonderful dogs do go people with fibromyalgia and other pain issues. So I am quoting her whole email here for you. The dogs are absolutely wonderful.  Almost before you realize your pain, the dog goes to the right spot and covers it with his body.

Dog jacket clothes

a-night-at-the-opera.jpgDogs need to be in style wherever they go. There are special class.jpg  dog jacket clothes for them with a hat too. There are dog jacket clothes that are appropriate for a trip on the yacht, or dog jacket clothes that are worn to the park on a Sunday afternoon. These dog jacket clothes are trendy and also protect your pet from the wind. However, I wanted to mention of a real hot dog I discovered. Actually I received the information from the fibromyalgia network. They are breeding Xolo dogs who do not have much hair but create a lot of heat, and therefore they are being used as service dogs for chronic pain relief that is relieved by heat. They are basically, hot dog heating pads. If you have a chronic pain condition check them out at: http://pawsforcomfort.com/site/
