This homemade costume for pets entered our 2019 Halloween Costume Contest.

A word from Melina, the 'Lt. Dan' costume creator:

Cameron is our Forever Foster (still available for adoption in San Diego CA) through Lionelís Legacy.org. Cameron was rescued with no movement or use of his hind end due to a spinal injury and therefor utilizes a wheelchair. Over the last year and a half is slowly learning to use his legs again!
After a year of fostering Cameron I knew I wanted to make him a cool costume this year. When my boyfriend mentioned Lieutenant Dan I knew we had to do it, as well as make Jenny and Forrest costumes to match OF COURSE. After over 4 hours of thrift and accessory shopping I had everything I needed. For 3 hours I took a menís medium shirt, a toddlers size 6 pants and cut them and hot glued them to Chihuahua/Dachshund size to attach to Cameronís wheels (he does not like getting dressed up). I also took a headband cut down to size for a collar and took some scraps, a paper bag and some foil to create a mini beer can. because it wouldn't be Lt. Dan without his booze.
I put a lot of time and detail into our costumes and hope others will appreciate it.... and Cameron. He may be a tough case to get adopted but we will love him as our own till that day comes. He is @cameroniezambonie on Instagram.
