Jersey Belle, my Boston Terrier, is named after a cow, due to her coloration.  :)  So I thought it would be appropriate to finally dress her as one!  Plus, she loves chicken, so it has to be fate.

I used a pink fabric that was part of a child's halloween costume that I got at the thrift store.

Cut out a piece that you think will be the right size...gland...for your pet.  Then kinda free-hand it and sew it like I did.  (Just make sure to sew right sides together, so you can turn it out, and have the seam on the inside.)  I had no plan, I just made things up as a I went hahah.  (I also stuffed a little cotton in there.) Once you have that done, take the seam of the fabric, cut pieces of that for the nipples, sew them on for best visibility.  Then Add the elastic, make sure it will fit first.  

Tip - my dog has random spots, so I put the udders on her, then I marked with a sharpie where she was black, so I could color that.  The idea was good, but I don't know if I put it on backwards or what...didn't quite match up, lol.

Step 3: Nose.

Try on the nose, and check for a comfortable fit.  Her nose was perfect!!! I didn't have to tighten it, or extend it...I just let the elastic kinda tuck on her collar and let her own nose, support the cow nose!

I used  a sharpie to color the elastic black, so it blends in with her head.  :)

OH-MY- GAWD...OH-MAH-GAWD...OH moo gawd!!! I love bostons, and you have got the best little trooper ever! Something about the way the nose and the little expression in the eyes of your precious pooch made me seriously crack up! I can just hear your words of encouragement," oohhhh, who's a pretty puppy...aren't you so pretty...just look at you?!!.." your puppies face, is probably like the same face the emperor and his court made from the children's book,"the emperor's got no clothes!!!"hahahaahha! priceless!

I wonder if there is a place in the hereafter where our pets get back at us for doing these things to them. This poor baby...I can't stop laughing....but then I look at her poor little innocent face and think...omg...I've done things like that to my dogs too....forgive me!
That's just to cute!!

That IS very cute. You are lucky to have such a co-operative dog. I know of quite a few that would have a lot of difficulty accepting most of the costume, but the hooves would have driven them a little batty :-)
GREAT! Love how the little one is helping!
GREAT job!
5 Stars!
