Sunday Mail – Up On The Dogwalk

by Jim Lawson

It all started when designer Aileen Toynton got fed up cleaning her American cocker spaniel Toto after walks in the rain.

Driven to distraction, she invented the doggy onesie. And overnight it has become the must-have item of the season.

Aileen, from Elgin, Moray, says she’s working “eight days a week” to keep up with the demand from as far afeld as Tasmania and Canada. The former court shorthand writer said: “It all happened by accident as a result of creating something for Toto. I was fed up with the daily bath routine after his walks.”
