Winter has returned—the temperature has dropped and it’s time to dig our winter coats out of the back of the closet and remember where we stashed our collection of winter hats and scarves. But when it comes to staying warm this season, we can’t forget about our pets. Sometimes a fur coat just isn’t enough to keep the cold at bay on chilly morning walks, and luckily there are dozens of products on the market designed to keep your furry friend comfortable (and fashionable) all winter long.
