OK, so the Thundershirt lasted exactly one week.
Charlie managed the chew through the chest trap, turning it into a useless doggie tubetop. Desperation kicked in, and I thought I could salvage the destruction. I pullled the chest strap tighter, just barely fastening the gnawed remnants of velcro together. Part swaddling/part straightjacket, the shirt is designed to alleviate doggie stress. Sadly, it was no defense against Charlie’s anxiety. I’m sure it didn’t take much to pop the chest strap open once we left for Eastern Market.
The good news is that Charlie was so busy chewing his Thundershirt that it didn’t even occur to him to chew on the window sill.
Good dog. Right?

Well there you go, now you can just buy tons of the cheapest coats you can find and your window still will stay safe.
Hahahahaha! If I would have known. I’m thinking I could just modify a bunch of leg warmers and suit him up. 😉
See – now you’ve got the idea. Who needs leg warmers anyway?
Hahaha. I declare the early ’80s over, and demand a new use for all legwarmers in the land!
