Our Lioness

This is Ellie, our 4month old golden retriever. I made her a lion mane for Growl-o-ween, a dog costume contest. I honestly can't believe we didn't win! She looks exactly like a lion ...:-)

I have researched the web to find this lions mane. You really should sell them. Dog owners will pay a good amount for what they want. Can you tell me if you sell them? Did you have a pattern or just used your imagination. My daughter really wants one for her golden and I want to buy or make it. I will now look on line to find the perfect material. Where did you get your material.

Hoping to hear from you. Thanks in advance!

I think Ellie made a beautiful lioness!! Your mane looks so good,and we would like to make our 4 month old, Miles, a lion mane too for an upcoming St.Petricks parade. Could you give me some instructions for making one too.

We also have a Golden Retriever and I want to make him a lion mane this year for Halloween. Any ideas would be appreciated!
