Also, as with all puppies, and children as well, emotional and mental growth isn't always as rapid as the physical growth. So when my 100 pound Saint Bernard puppy, Tropie, escaped the back yard and began gnawing on the neighbor's house it was a hard task to convince my neighbor that the puppy was physically large but still very much puppy!
I've learned so much with those few pieces and am ready to begin a...deep breath...exterior garment! I have dreams of creating an 18th century riding habit similar to this beautiful piece from the Victoria and Albert Museum dated 1770 - 1775. Look at that incredible trim!
