  1. Think This Will Be Humiliating?

    November 30, 2008 by MyEye

    I love my puppy and my puppy loves me.  My puppy does not want anyone else to love me or to distract me from his wants and needs.  So when he is picqued, Chase lifts his leg at the corners of my bed.  He’s confined in the kitchen/laundry room/half bath/dog-door-to-yard when I’m not home.  When I am home, the dogs are loose with me.  Yesterday my granddaughter was visiting, so, sometime during the afternoon, Chase sneaked upstairs and marked the floor at the end of my bed.  That’s it!  He gets to wear a belly band as if he was a Min Pin, or another of the breeds that has no house manners.
    Of course, I looked on line.  Best price for his size is $28, plus shipping for four solid colored cumberbunds.  Whoa, too much!  . . . like I need another project . . .

    What’d you do to me?

    I called my DIL and asked for return of my sewing machine.

    Then I went to buy fabric and velcro and maxi-pads.  I stopped first at a Dollar Store.  They had kids’ camouflage fleece scarves for $1.00.  Although I am pretty annoyed with Chase, I refrained from buying him pink scarves.  I got two blue and two tan.  At the fabric store I bought iron-on velcro.  I think I’m going to put a few holding stitches in the velcro, but I’ve avoided a major sewing job.


    Now, when Chase is in the bedroom at night, this is how he’ll look — and the carpet at the foot of my bed will be saved.


    He says, “I won’t wear this outside.”
