The Gloved One 白手套

Henry plays euphonium. His right hand rubs on the metal finish and it gives him a rash. Instead of having the instrument refinished which costs a fortune, Mom gave him a simple solution.

Can you find the doglet?

No matter how big he think he is, that's still a little child's hand.

Rascal says Hi :-)

Great idea. I like how you showed the price as $0 much better than having the instrument refinished.

Great solution. Now, are you going to make several different versions so he can match his outfits? LOL

Sarah said...

Great idea, and with the ribbing he'll have room to grow. Also, hi rascal! My pups say hello to you!

Sandy said...

Great solution - but I'll call him The Mitted One. And keeping rashes at bay - priceless. :)

And until you asked the question, I would have missed Rascal in the first photo!

I was just thinking he needed a skin-colored one for recitals!

Nice job... and very cool that he's modeling his new mitt. :-)

BTW, I love that you put the Chinese after the English... not that I can read it. ;-)

Great idea and it looks pretty cool. Give that little Rascal some love from me and LittleDog. Even though he's sound asleep and unaware of the obligations I'm placing on him.
