Effie hasn’t a thing to wear. What’s a girl to do?

Improvise, of course.

But wait.. I’ll back up..

The post-op instructions specified that she needs to wear either a t-shirt or The Cone of Shame, until the sutures heal. The t-shirt is definitely the preferred option, but we have had a ridiculous time trying to get it to stay on. Myself, C, and doggie-daycare staff have all tried some combination of shirt-tying and safety pins, but no dice.


We put our heads together — me and The Effer — and we came up with a somewhat creative solution for her fashion conundrum: A plain black camisole with both armstraps over her left shoulder, and then both tied to the extra width in a bow.

Here’s to hoping that this can serve to protect her sutures AND stay on while walking and sleeping. (Tall order, I know!)


Later, fashion feinds!

    She looks absolutely marvelous in her new fashion statement! Thanks for the shoulder-bow idea … I will incorporate it into the new coat design.

    She’s looking great! And a novel solution to the problem. Keep us posted, as we know she’s a verrry active girl.

    On the other hand, from her expression I’m not sure she’s convinced this is a good fashion statement.

    Can’t wait to see her in action.

    Tell her Boozer says hi! I think he recognizes her pictures.
