These Chilly Dogs coats are warm, easy to put on and look great, but none of those are the most important quality in a coat

Any Chicago residents who can’t make it to an NHL game can visit Montrose Dog Beach this winter to watch my two brawlers pull on each other like hockey fighters.

Admission is free!

  10. Thing at least one of those photos shows a clear-cut cross checking penalty and another borders on a game misconduct. My kind of girl. 🙂
