Spoiled dog alert!

Younger daughter and her husband don't (technically) have children.  
They have an adorable Cavalier King Charles Spaniel female, named  
McKenzie.  They are going on a car trip in November to Vancouver  
Island, and expecting lots of rain.  Natch, right?

She has asked me if I can make a dog rain coat.  She linked to this:
http://www.baxterboo.com/p.cfm/yellow-rain-jumper-dogo
and
http://www.saunalahti.fi/glottis/raincoat.htm

She wants a four-legged coat made of slicker fabric, lined with  
light-weight cotton terry.

I have knit a dozen doggie sweaters (for my cockapoo and Shih Tzus),  
this is a little out of my area of expertise.

I'm not crazy about that pattern link. I could probably just take  
lots of measurements and draft something, but  can anyone point me  
to something better?  Or does someone here have a doggie raincoat  
pattern I can purchase?

Thanks!

Given that this breed is a small version of a gundog is a coat really
necessary?  Generally in the UK (where the climate is very similar to
that of Vancouver) only breeds of dog with very short hair (greyhounds &
whippets) wear coats routinely.

Just my two penn'orth.

DD thinks so.  ;-}  Her wish is my command...

A couple years ago I was in WalMart and found a raincoat when I was shopping  
for a warm coat for my dog.   He prefers the sweater for when it is cold,  
but the rain coat was unnecessary since he won't go out in the rain and get  
his feet wet and Reese won't wear boots.

I wish some one with some real experience with soggy dog would chime in  
here.  Our Yorkie - who has Very uppity AKC papers has the restriction that  
he can not be shown.  He is a 'woolie' meaning his coat is triple heavy much  
like a red-haired stepchild.  He loves water; heads for the deepest rut in  
the lane so he can really get soaked.  I 'think' we could keep a Chihuahua  
warm and somewhat dry - but a Yorkie?  I am eager to see what success  
Beverly has with a spaniel.  I'm thinking they think water is big fun too.

Reese is a Chi & Winner dog mix.  He is brown and looks more like a Winnie  
dog with legs about an inch longer than they are supposed to be!  He looks  
like the Winnie dogs on Greeting cards and that is what he sends me for my  
birthday.    I love the Yorkie dogs, too.  A couain has one.

I have seen the doggie rain coat pattern in either McCall or Simplicity  
book.  Don't remember which.
