This is one pitbull that couldn't hurt a fly.

This by far the strangest taxidermy request I've ever had in 40 years in the business.

Customer wanted his dog as rug but with no lining, just tanned. But he wanted the bottom of the rugshell to be concave so that he can wear it on his head.
He also wanted his dog to have a silly grin on his face.

Not my idea..........customer is always right.

While the weirdness factor is off the charts...I think you nailed the taxi part of it!!

Weird, but cool, I guess. In my one summer of being a door-to-door salesperson, I was in the house with a mounted english sheep dog.

Or people might just think you are a serial killer. Like Jesse Pinkman, the blowfish. ;)

It was not said that it was the guy's dead dog. This may have been a trophy hunt. I'm all in on feral dogs and cats having there own trophy status. Although this one was a good trophy, I dont think the measurement was high enough for book status.............I'm joking...........kinda .

Great post glass eye, thanks for sharing fun stuff like this.

Strange for sure, but great taxi work, especially the mouth and eyes.
