Loved the jacket, but not a good fit for my dog

My Dobie girl is deep-chested, so the medium was perfect in length but too snug around her abdomen. I was told by the folks at Ruff Wear that the large is two inches longer. This will cover my girl's nub, which she doesn't like at all. But the product is great - the material is soft and keeps the dog warm, and it's elastic enough to accommodate movement.

I read your review and have a few questions for you. I have a Dobie too, a boy, and we just returned from our first climbing/camping trip with him along and I realized that I need to get him a coat as well. My dobie is about 90 pounds, so he is on the taller and all around larger side of average. Is your dobie girl around that size or smaller? I'm curious about the fit, as dobies by nature are deep chested. Did you find that this held water when it got wet? It rains a lot here and I wouldn't want to put him in a coat would just soak up the water. Thanks!
