Help Me Name This Pattern - My First. Boy Dog Diaper :o)
I've made a boy diaper in Peaches 'n Cream. Male dogs often get dumped at shelters because they have a problem marking, like my Peanut does. I admit if not for his little diapers (made by a lady at the Shih Tzu rescue with which I worked) I would have lost my sanity a long time ago.

Being a knitter of course I HAD to make my own . I want an appropriate name for it. Anyone?

Here are a couple of pictures to help spark your creativity.....because I'm not very good at such things. It's basically a sash that goes around their middle. Sort of reminds us of a Samurai sometimes, but that doesn't sound good.

His name is Peanut and in the rescue they had named in Pistachio for record-keeping sake. Both names could be used tongue-in cheek as in 'PEE'nut or 'PISS'tachio but I don't like either of those either. I want people to be able to find it on a search on Ravelry.

Help me pick a name for this pattern. It will be offered free on Ravelry and on my blog. He's really overdue for a clipping, then I will take more pics to show off the diaper. :oS

Just out of curiosity, does this prevent them from marking all together? Or do they just attempt to mark and it gets on the sash?

It can't stop him from hiking his leg, the urine stays in the sash and you wash it when necessary. However, the lack of fresh urine in the house can eventually help your dog learn that all his scent marking is to be done outside.
