I put a lot of items on my dog – a lot of them homemade knitted objects. He’s a good sport, though you can tell by his face that he is doing it only because he loves me. Currently I am working on knitting his Halloween costume – it was an ambitious project and I should have focused on it more previously – not just this past week. It should be ok though, so I’m not worried too much.
At target today I did find the astronaut costume! I was so excited – a back-up costume, just in case. I bought the small size (for dogs with 10in – 13in neck to tail length) – there weren’t any mediums. I cut it off the hang tag board and pop it on the dog. It’s a disaster.
There’s no way his back legs can fit into those leg sleeves. Now that I look at the corgi model closer it doesn’t look like his legs are in there either – they are not velcroed shut. I could live with that, but being a dachshund he’s endowed in the chest area and it barely stays velcroed there. Anyone interested in buying it from me? $9.99. I’ll trade for yarn or books (check out my amazon wishlist even)….
Now the pressure is on and I really need to bust out the original idea!
