I don't think you could buy nicer.

Sorry to get a bit off topic here---can you let me know how your waterproofing went?

They are really badass and adorable, I like the collar too. I just wonder if saddlebags dont hurt the dog's spine at all. I wonder why there is nothing in the middle....hmm idk looks uncomfortable

the second set are exactly the same shape as the outward hound set I got at petsmart...did you use the store bought ones to make a pattern or something? the ones I bought pretty much ended up looking exactly like that within a few months because they constantly needed to be patched up.
and yaay punx puppies! they look sweet!

I don't think it's bad for your dogs back if you don't over load em

the dogs do absolutely fine with them. but yeah the second ones were framed around an old outward hound pack, those things are shitty. the backs have soft padding, the whole thing does.

Monthly Goals

  1. Paying the Bills
    $50.00 of $50.00 - reached!
    The first $50 in donations go towards paying our monthly server fees and adding new features to the website. Once this goal is reached, we'll see about feeding Matt that burrito.
  2. Buy Matt a Beer
    $75.00 of $75.00 - reached!
    Now that we have the bills paid for this month, let's give Matt a hearty thank you by buying him a drink for all the hard work he's done for StP. Hopefully his will help keep him from going insane after a long day of squishing website bugs.
  3. Feed Matt a Burrito
    $100.00 of $100.00 - reached!
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt has a beer in his hand, how about showing him your love by rewarding all his hard work with a big fat burrito to put in his mouth. This will keep him alive while programming new features for the website.
  4. Finance the Shopping Cart
    $115.00 of $200.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt is fed, perhaps it's time to start planning for those twilight years under the bridge... if only he had that golden shopping cart all the oogles are bragging about these days.
