My family has a dog that was badly burned 4 years ago, he recovered just fine and is really no worse for the wear, except the hair where he was burned never really grew back. (Our hot water tank had "broken" and we were moving boiling water from the kitchen to the bathroom, he decided to appear out of nowhere and my mom tripped on him. The three of us all got burned but the pooch definitely absorbed the majority of the spill. Turns out the first plumber that came to our house to look at the water tank turned it completely down instead of turning up the temperature.... ). There are some areas where there is definite improvement, such as small, thin tufts and patches of hair.
Anyway, I was hoping to find a creatve way to cover his bald patch, as he tends to lick it and get wierd questions about it and is moving in with me now. I am hoping to shy away from a shirt/coat fix because he is long haired and it is on his back close to his tail. The bald patch is about the size of a medium dinner plate. I was thinking of making a back wig (lol) that I could clip onto his fur, using the hair clips that look almost like combs...almost a clip/pick hybrid? The other idea I had was to make the patch just look like a patch from a patchwork quilt. Is that too dorky?
Any ideas, however small or seemingly odd would be greatly appreciated!
