This pic reminds me of a personal story. I had a dog that had a tumor on her rib cage. After the surgery she would keep licking the stitches so we put an Elizabethan collar on her. That got old quick, so I tried putting t-shirts on. That worked like a champ! She could run and do whatever she wanted without running into stuff. But she did end up ruining a lot of my old car show tees.
