Not that Big Box Armor you're used to.

"Your dog will need to be a pitbull shaped dog around 65 lbs or Ill need your dog here in person to get the right fit." Armor with a personal touch. A full suit of armor for $610! And you your pitbull shaped dog can even match. Oh, and in case you share a hobby with the janitor from Scrubs, you can get this as well.

They should hire this guy to do Prince Caspian, if that's the next Narnia movie they're making.

GERBIL ARMOR COMING SOON

This is actually pretty awesome though.

That poor, poor, puppy. He looks like an armadillo, only less dignified. The earholes in the headpiece, especially, are killing me.

Why do I think he's not really kidding about the gerbil armor?

My desire to snark is at odds with my respect for this guy's craftsmanship.

I think the dog armor is kinda nifty, actually.

Yeah, that's neat. Wish I could work metal like that.

Just in time for Christmas!

Just the thing to protect him from frantic parents whehn he sinks his teeth into toddlers at the park.

I wonder if he makes armor for bears too.

Weirdly cool.

When my dad started having serious health problems, he decided to fulfill some life-long materialistic dreams: to get a Rolex, and to get a full-size, wearable suit of armor. When Dad died, my brother got the Rolex; as soon as my mom is willing to give it up, the armor is mine. I think it’s a fair deal.

The armor for ladies (please only really funny boob jokes, thx) looks incredibly uncomfortable. Wouldn't your boobs be all squished, or..?

Now, if he had little horned viking hats in vallhund sizes...

Your dog wants steel.

This could come in handy if your dog is going to fight a monkey with a stick.

PowerThirst: It'll make you feel like you're wearing ARMOR made for a PITBULL. ARMOR for a PITBULL. A PITBULL.

Dogs you cannot trust. Owners you cannot trust. This, this you can trust.

I assume he builds them from measurements, so at least they should fit. That said, the top and bottom ones (without the metal tits) are the ones that look the most comfortable to me. They probably fit like a sports bra, which is to say, somewhat squished/uncomfortable, but not nearly as bad as the your-boobs-are-forever-SEPARATE-BUT-EQUAL-now! look of the Deluxe one.

Y'know, I'm thinkin' some pitbulls are given very reasonable incentive to want to attack the people who own them. If not the heavy armor, then just the fact that the guy goes around shirtless saying things like "Welcome to the gunshow..."

Given the way my dog sulks when I put fleece booties on her ("It's December and you're half Chihuahua - fucking deal with it!"), I image this must be pure canine hell.

Is you're half-chihuahua also named bonecrusher? Because that would be, you know, awesome.
posted by The Bellman at 1:07 PM on December 7, 2007


No, no, no.... Not you're, your. I HATE idiots who make that mistake. Like me.

Just look at this picture.

My dog doesn't wear armor, she is a Berserker. And like a furry, guided-missile, she will without fail, manage to nail you in the crotch when she leaps into your lap.

The mere thought of adding mass to this painful experience makes me wince.

I have to admit, it just looks so much better than those silly sweaters people put on dogs.

Oh god. Oh god oh god oh god. Painful mental place.

I have a Boxer. She greets friends the same way the 1976 Flyers greeted their opponents. The last thing she needs is to be pointy while she does it.

Awesome, it looks just like the warhound in Conan the Barbarian that eats Young Conan's dad!

I'm sure wearing this would get you laughed out of the jousting tourney

I dig the craftsmanship. I also enjoyed the web 1.0'ness of Gallery 2.
