Happy Dogs on Thursday! Despite battling severe fall allergies (which I’ve never had before, thanks much) and the danged allergy meds that don’t suit my system a hoot, it’s been one speedy week.
Yesterday, I (again) showed you Lulu DIVA and her grand tutu. I won’t link and talk about her cause again, but I do owe you lots of LTS photos.
My girls are too frisky to get the whole waddle idea. (Waddles are popular with basset folk, for obvious reasons, but we all know Sissy is hardly a typical basset.) Still, we all wanted to support Lulu in her first waddle, so out came the tutus and the cameras!
For unknown reasons, Sissy got a case of the zoomies as soon as her tutu was secured around her waist. Of course, what Sissy does, Gretchie does, so we had to wait for Sis to calm down a bit to get Gretchie’s tutu on.
The tutu was a bit big for Gretch (one size does NOT fit all), so she was very lady-like and just waltzed and sat while her skirt was on. Of course, Gretchen does seem to get the concept of decorum far, FAR better than her big sister…
The tutus were purchased at PetsMart, and while they are marked “one size” I would guess they’d best fit dogs in the 25-50 lbs. range. Sis has TONS of room in hers too, but most dogs near 50 lbs. are bulkier than she is!
My dear friend Ann has hatched a scheme for no-sew me to create a purple tutu for Sissy though. Tulle, lots of velcro for the waist, and fabric glue… I’ll probably add some sort of (insert proper sewing/fabric term here) 1/2 – 3/4 ” binding or whatever so I don’t have to try to match up all that velcro around that waist.
And whoooo hoooo, it’s little friday! Look for an FO report tomorrow.
