50s swimsuit for my pooch!

My poor Huntey had to get 6 lumps removed from all over his body (including a nipple and his manhood) because they might have turned into cancers. This means that the poor thing had 6 rows of very lovely stitches. Which would have been fine. But lovely Hunter is a licker! And he licked and licked until he was given one of those big plastic elazabethan collars. They are a wonderful invention. For smart animals. But silly Huntey insisted on walking into the back of our legs every two seconds and almost taking us out every time. So after very many bruises and a few harsh words I decided the collar would have to be replaced with this lovely coat I fashioned from gorgeous stretchy blue and yellow striped knit fabric. I think the pretty boy quite likes it!

Material Notes

some scraps of yellow and blue knit fabric




Garment Type
Grunge, Preppy, Romantic

    What a cute suit for such a good sport. I hope he recovers quickly and is back to his old self soon.

    I started laughing when I saw the thumnail image, until I heard the stoy, then I felt sorry for the poor pooch! Hope he gets better soon! God bless you, M

    So much nicer than those awful collars! I hope Hunter gets given a clean bill of health :)
