Pelons are extremely rare "practice pieces" for the early t-shirt designs. Before production was initiated, the image or design was tested on cotton cloth or burlap to determine the color and line accuracy of the piece. Only a few of the "tests" were preserved once the design was deemed acceptable and the t-shirt went into production.

The dog in this image was named Gordo, and he was artist Dave Sheridan's pet. Before Gordo posed for his portrait, Sheridan actually painted the black ring around the dog's eye.
