Meat Maja. She is a seven-month-old mix of Chihuahua and Jack Russell Terrier. My oldest son and daughter in law are her “parents” and I am lucky enough to be her “granny” :-)
Maja loves to play with her ball. This Christmas we watched her while my son and daughter in law visited the Philippines. One morning I woke up, she had crawled under my blankets and was making a noise that was gradually bothering me. She had her ball, a squeaking ball…. In her mouth. I took it away from her and hid it. However, with her excellent smell she soon found my “not so good” hiding place. I ended up taking it away again and putting it out of reach. She was driving me crazy with the ball and I wanted to wake up in peace!!!
Despite her intense love for this object (the ball), Maja is quite adorable.
She went into “heat” for the first time about a week ago and I made her panties and diapers.
The pantie pattern was a free download from http://www.mimiandtara.com/2012/05/dog-sanitary-panty-diaper-nappy.html . I really like them, but I had to make several changes to the pattern. I found that it is important to place the elastic at the narrows part of the dog. This for Maja is right above her tail. So there was no room for ruffles at the top.
The panties are light and comfortable but, the “crafty” little Maja, takes it of during the night. So today I made her some very sturdy Dog Diapers. I got the pattern at http://www.craftsy.com/pattern/sewing/pet/dog-diaper-pattern-sizes-xxs-xs-s-m-l
I used a wide velcro instead of the narrow kind and made ajustments to the pattern, f.example I made the diaper wider on the tail side and added elastic above the tail so it would hug the body. This is meant to STAY ON, even though the little MISS does not agree.
