In truth, the jacket is more for ease of getting Molly back into Baby Jane in case she jumps or falls in. Despite everyone telling us flat coat retrievers love water and swimming, my experience with Molly is that she loves to paddle but will not swim or jump into deep water.
It's unlikely Molly will jump or fall from Lady Jane because the sides are a little high for that. Still, a game of fetch with her favorite toy could go horribly wrong, so we will need to take care.
I'm thinking the jacket will be handy for taking Molly shopping or something, as she looks a little like a guide dog. Pity she can't act like one!
