Dog Armor

Custom-made dog armor. For the times when you plan to take your dog into combat. I wonder if I could order a suit for my parents' 200 lb great dane.

My poor little dog would probably be crushed under the weight of this.

Alright, this guy is strange. He actually has squirrel armor. WTF?!?!?

I can't imagine any situation in which this wouldn't be practical! Do you think my cats would wear suits of armour?

Kingmonkey, how about this...

Or this if you have cats and rats...

Gotta love it!

Sorry, didn't realize the picture was so big.

Is it bullet proof? Get some for the police dogs if it is!
How'd you like to see a 100 lb snarling German Shepard charging at you covered in body armor? That would be a pretty darn good crime deterant for me.

Actually I think the leather one at the bottom of the page is pretty spiffy looking, on that dog at least. They don't let dogs in to Ren. Faire's but if they did it would be great to dress them up in some of that 😊

Jules - I'll be happy to get on all fours and sniff your crotch if you want to get me the leather set for my b-day.

So, how long did it take before I stooped into the gutter.

According to the time stamps about 38 minutes after I showed up.

I know your birthday is soon, but I tend to think the wife would object if KW or I started buying you stuff. Especially bondage-ish stuff.

38 minutes? I think that's a new record for me (not how fast I stoop but how long I could hold out)

Hey, the wife has accepted both of you into my harem (as she put it).

We'll need written proof of that over a signature of blood, Maxx.

This would work for my little 12 pound Jack Russell who keeps getting beat up by my big 50 pound Golden Retriever. Personally, I think the JR just irritates the crap out of the GR - I swear those little dogs just never stop...ever...they just keep going and going and going and going and going and going and going and going...

Expat - My wife would probably happily oblige.

Thanks Patty!

You know, the squirrel cowl looks remarkably like the Covenant Elite armor from Halo. Hmmmmm. 😕

Now that I've gotten a chance to look over the rest of his offerings I would have to say the guy is pretty good at what he does. If I had the ability to shape metal into armor (and believe me, I'm trying) I would be doing the same thing in a heartbeat for my three cats! 😝

Ahhh the squirrel. Few years ago my dad put a bird feeder in the backyard, one of those stand-alone types with the green plastic house on top of a wooden stake. Didn't take long for him to realize that a squirrel was constantly cleaning it out. It started The Squirrel Wars. He tried everything he could think of to keep that squirrel out of bird feeder... he changed it from a wooden stake to a metal pole but the squirrel could still climb it. Then he added a plastic cone to the pole that was "guaranteed" to stop squirrels but the clever critter chewed his way through it. He raised the feeder, he lowered it, he moved it all over the yard to keep it away from trees... it was quite the joke with my brother and I keeping score (Squirrel 1, Dad 0... Squirrel 2, Dad 0...) My mom finally put an end to it when my dad slit his arm open from wrist to elbow on some metal sheeting he was using to make a chew-proof cone, had to be rushed to the ER and get stitches and staples. (Squirrel 20, Dad 0)

Right patty, next time this comes up, I'll walk right up to my dad and say "You need to grease your pole." ...

Now I've sunk deep into Maxx's gutter. :lol:

"Provides hours of enjoyment as bystanders can watch squirrels try to outsmart this fool-proof feeder."

Hours of enjoyment? Don't these people have better things to do? I mean, thet could be off somewhere making armor for dogs.
