While we were on holiday, they tried to kick DiploDog out of the building. It’s quite unfair because the policy is “no PETS allowed.” Those who have cats though freely flaunt them – I’ve even seen one tenant go up and down the elevator with his cat on his shoulder. So it is really only with dogs that the policy is implemented because Muslim tenants complain about them. To work around this we settled on an arrangement to cover up DiploDog completely every time he is brought down for a walk. This seems fair to me since, it is showing respect for our Muslim neighbors (Dog saliva is considered “haram” or unclean) so I immediately set out to make a bag liner for DiploDog’s bag made out of cheap canvas cloth from Majestic Market.
I wish I could share step by step instructions, but I really just made it up while I went along.
- I just made sure that it was tall enough to cover him completely
- With a drawstring closure on top to make sure that DiploDog is hidden. We don’t close it fully of course so that he has enough air to breathe.
- The great thing about this canvas fabric is that it stands on its own.
- I made the rope with scrap fabric that I sewed together and then inverted it. Perfect because I didn’t waste too much fabric!
DiploDog was such a good boy, modeling for my shoot. =) What do you think of this DiploDIY project? =) Hope you like it!
