I know what you mean. Miss Tallulah has to wear a winter coat because it is freezing cold. She just stands stick still -paralyzed, - won't even move to eat a yummy treat. When I put it on her she looks so devastated. I have to guide her outside with a firm hand on the leash and she takes little tiny baby steps. Once outside she kind of forgets about the coat because there is so much sniffing to do. Then we start all over the next time she goes out.
