Stroller: hey, its embarrassing whether its a dog stroller or baby stroller. You get used to the strange looks and stupid comments.
I found an old toddler stroller that someone had thrown out. It was a mess but with a bit of washing, was usable. Toto's dog bag fit right in. If you don't have a dog bag, use a sports bag with a piece of wooden board for the bottom and a few blankets piled up over it.
Dog Back Leg Harness: I looked around and the new ones cost about 50 dollars. At first I used a scarf, but I worried that it put too much pressure on his bits. One day after using it, we had to have a catheter set again because he wasn't peeing. So I decided to make one. I hand stitched it (with my pretty much non existent sewing skills) and it has held up perfectly for about a month now. Toto is about 22 pounds (10.5 kilo). So this definitely works for a dog his size or smaller.
Start with a sleeve cut out of a soft sweater:
Roll it up, starting at the wider end.
Put a few stitches in to hold it in place. Then attach a loop. (I cut this harness material out of the stroller). Do this again with the other sleeve:
Use scrap material to sew the two pieces together in the center:
Then some rings (I added three and attached the leash to the middle one) and off you go!:
Toto's shoes are made of leather and shaped to his feet, then hand stitched: drew his foot on some paper, increased the size by about half an inch, doubled it on leather, stitched it. To keep them on I use Velcro. The toe stitches were opening up a bit so I wrapped duct tape around the toes to prevent them from coming undone. They've also held up over a week now. Before I was using socks and they lasted a day or two at most. The store bought ones didn't stay on at all.
