Coat for Homeland Security puppy

DenimCross | Posted in General Discussion on

Hi All,

Here’s a rather unusual request!  I’ve just recently formed a charitable,
non-profit youth organization that will be working with school children
across the country to help raise Labrador Retriever pups for homeland
security.

I’m eagerly looking for someone (or a group) to help in designing and making a coat
for our first pup who will be 8 weeks old (and about 10 lbs.) arriving here in NJ around Christmas time.  I have the basic design in mind but need the assistance of a seamstress to actually make the first one for us.

I’d very much appreciate any suggestions you might be able to pass along, to put me in touch with someone who might be willing and able to help us with this patriotic request at this initial stage of our development.

Thanks in advance for any assistance!

Gene

    A few ideas might be to take your request to a local Vocational/Technical high school or Community College.  If that isn't possible, contact your local fabric stores; seamstresses often leave their names and numbers there if they are looking for work.  Have you had a press conference yet?  Mentioning that you are looking for someone to make this would probably get you a flood of applicants!

    Good luck!

      Thanks a million Mimi!!  Not quiet ready for our press conference just yet, but those are wonderful suggestions that you've provided that this novice to this world of yours will definitely follow up on.

      All my best,

      Gene

    I would think this would be a great idea for a Girl Scout Group, or a sewing class, (if they still have sewing classes in school). I would get in touch with the scout council in your area.

      Thanks a million Claire!  I'll be exploring those avenues right away.

      All my best,

      Gene
