Again...just breaking it up into more than one post so I don't overwhelm anyone's computer.



(This one is made out of a tee that used to say guide dog puppy trainers and now just says guide dog. I got the shirt at goodwill.)




These two were made a bit longer:

Wow...those are so cool...have you tried the doggie dresses? They look just like little girl dresses.
I honestly thought they were ridiculous at first...but they have grown on me.
Do you ever work with or sew for greyhounds?

diosperdida,
I've made one doggie dress and its reversable. I'll have to take photos. I haven't tried to make dog dresses because I've discoverd that Clover can fit into size 6-9 month baby clothes, so one saftey pin and a baby dress fits her. (Not that she's thrilled, lol). I've never made a pattern or sewn for greyhounds. I traced a hot topic shirt to get the pattern for clover-sized shirts and I shrunk it down and worked with it to fit on my cousin's tiny chihuahua for the xs size. I do have a friend who wants me to make a shirt for her dog and while it isn't a greyhound, it's tall and slim like one. I am assuming you have a greyhound? If so, what size is she normally? I bought some pattern packs online but have yet to try them out. If I get a basic pattern down, I can definitely make one for that kind of dog, even if it means mailing you the basic piece to see if it will fit. Smiley

I have had greyhounds in the past. They have very long bodies, very wide chests, and large necks..all topped by tiny heads...and narrow hind quarters at the other end. They have a physic more like a cheetah than the average dog, I always thought.
I am thinking of making greyhound wear to donate because greyhounds really do benifit from some extra warmth in cold winter places. They dont regulate their own temps well themselves, and have a small amount of fur for staying warm.

I looked at all of your Clover posts.  I won't reply to all of them, but I am in love with your dog!  I can't believe how tolerant Clover is, to just sit there while wearing all of the different outfits.  So adorable!!!! Do you have a rescue group for dogs???

Peardream,
Thanks! I'm in love with my dog, too. Tongue I don't have a rescue group myself but I work at the city animal shelter where we work to get a lot of our dogs rescued (unfortunately pit bulls aren't very popular with them). I want to to eventually have my own rescue group. One of the girls I work with wants to be a vet and wants to have a rescue group, too, so we dream together. Tongue

That would be my dream too, if I had a lot of land to keep them on.  I got my dog, Goober, from a rescue group.  For some reason I always see Dachshunds in shelters...They can be a handful sometimes and some dont' want to deal with them.

How many dogs do you have?  I'd end up with so many dogs if I worked in a shelter.  I have such a soft spot for doggies....

Maybe I'll try to make some outfits for my lil' old man dog (he's 13).....

Thanks for all of the wonderful work you do for the animals

Peardream,
I've got CLover and then there is the family dog Thistle (chihuahua/terrier) who will be 12 next month. THose are the only dogs we have. I used to have three guinea pigs, but two died and the third was given to someone who had some (they're social creatures and she was lonely by herself). I'd have more dogs, but I live with my parents and they have a say in what gets to come home. They do let me foster little dogs, though. I've had about five I've fostered now. Most of them are older ugly unwanted animals, but they've eventually gotten adopted. I fostered a jack russell puppy and my mom said no more pups after she got adopted because it was too hard to give her up. We don't have many dachshunds in our shelters. Most are chihuahua and pit bull mixes around here.

I love the doggy shirts.  I like that they are sleeveless - they look like wife beaters, which seems appropriate for your dog.
