A Washington D.C. woman adopted an orphaned squirrel in the early 1940s. Dubbed Tommy Tucker, he became her animal companion –accompanying her to the grocery store, for instance– and model for her designs. LIFE Magazine took photographs and decades later, publishes them online for aspiring animal dress designers as “A Squirrel’s Guide to Fashion.” Rock on, sassy squirrel!
