Okay, I know it looks more like an ape, but it has a tail and "monkey" is more fun to say than "ape", especially when talking to the dog.  Anyway, standard operating procedure for The ManFlesh's dog is to pick up a somewhat floppy stuffed animal at Goodwill for her to cuddle and eventually eviscerate.  So, I had an opportunity to pick up free, barely used stuffies from a friend.  This was the only somewhat floppy one available and when I got it home I realized that it was a puppet.  That's my hand in its, uh... cavity, before the transplant surgeries.



As I find it hysterical how the dog both cuddles and disembowels her "babies", I decided to fill it's cavity with fabric guts. 



I used all scrap fabric and the stuffing from the head and legs to stuff the brain and bones which all went back into the head and legs, respectively.  The stomach-like piece is made from the puppet lining fabric.



The brain is my favorite.  I haven't told The ManFlesh about this project, so when his dog tears it open it will be a surprise for them both!   

The pics are with my phone, because I can't find my camera anywhere.  Sorry they aren't so hot.

Oh, ow...my sides hurt from laughing so hard! This is the most hilarious thing ever!! This is just great. Hope the dog doesn't tear it apart too quickly! I want one for myself. Grin

Still laughing...

But we have flamethrowers. And what this indicates to me, it means that at some point, some person said to himself, "Gee, I sure would like to set those people on fire over there. But I'm way too far away to get the job done. If only I had something that would throw flame on them."

That is wonderful! [admittedly a little morbid]
I may have to steal this idea for my own dog.

Thanks everyone!  The image in my head was of much more detailed guts, but then I realized that they were just going to get slobbered on, chewed up and spread around, so it was best to not fuss with details. 

I was tempted to put monkey thoughts inside the brain (a banana, maybe a fez) and monkey foods in the guts (more bananas, leaves, cheetos), but then realized that was too much effort for this kind of project.

Now I just have to wait for the dog to come back to her dad's house from her mom's house in another state.  They  share custody, just like me and my ex do with the cats.

Thanks!  I had a fun time giggling my way through making it.  SOOOOO hard not to tell him about it, but I think the surprise will be worth it.  Too bad I probably won't be there when Mr. Monkey spills his guts.  I hope that he sees the dog open it up, because I bet she'll be surprised about it, too!
