Think This Will Be Humiliating?

November 30, 2008

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.”

    shame on Chase…. He’s lucky he didn’t get pink 😉 Good job, Penni! Now… can you figure out how to make girl panties?? If so, I ‘ll place an order or two 😉

    SHAME ON CHASE! Traum went through THAT phase…. Oooo was I one PISSED mama! LOL

    You shoulda gotten pink 😉 I’ve found personally that the dogs seem to prefer flannel panties and such. I made bands for a friend out of flannel too. Fleece gets HOT, so I tend to use flannel for everything animal related, other than blankies, and bedding.

    My toy poodle Charlie used to do that… I HATED it! (except that he’d get mad at Jeff and pee on his pillow 🙂 HAHAHA)
    The family he lives with now says they don’t have any problems- but they are retired and take him EVERYWHERE.

    What a fashion statement. I’ve never heard of such a thing but then I’ve always had female dogs. Hope Chase gets the message.
