Beast Reduction Surgery

Sometimes elective surgery is necessary in order to correct or change one's natural body shape. Fortunately, as I've mentioned before, paper mache is a very forgiving medium.
"Also known as reduction mammalplasty*, beast reduction removes excess beast fat, glandular tissue and skin to achieve a well-proportioned beast size and to alleviate the discomfort associated with overly large beasts."

American Society of Plastic Sturgeons

*This assumes that your creature is a mammal.

My houndeye was suffering from a congenital deformity so I got out my surgical tools and sawed off enough to make her left one more like the right. After applying some new paper mache strips and finishing up she'll be able to appear in public with confidence and a better self-image with no scarring and no one the wiser.

The Clawwwwwwwww!

Check out those gams!

"Nature will come through the claws, and the hound will follow the hare"  Irish saying

One of my favorite scenes from the old "Beverly Hillbillies" TV show was when one of the Drysdale's housemaids goes running by with the poodle, "Claude", in her arms crying, "I got Claude!" Naturally the Clampetts misinterpret the situation and hilarity ensues. I love a good pun.

Here's the houndeye after getting a pedicure:

I got clawed!
Claws are made of oven-baked Sculpey over aluminum foil.
Elbow spikes are made of paperclay.
"Sweet dreams are made of this... who am I to disagree?"
