Lizborg: Fiber Optic Standing Ruff
I knew from the get-go that I would put fiber optics in the ruff. It was one of the very first ideas I had, but it was easier said than done. Getting the ruff to stand up was an enormous headache. I tried all kinds of materials for the underpropper, finally settling a veterinary collar, which I've been told are called E-collars in the trade, short for "Elizabethan collar." It's further supported by five heavy duty plastic cable ties. The fiber optics are attached to five hair clip battery cases at the base of the ruff.
