More Dog Days
On top is a Muensterlander that is owned by my brother-in-law. Her name is Flash and I made this for him for Christmas some years ago. Flash is a hunting dog, so I thought this pattern by Quail Hill Designs was perfect. Next is Spanky, a Jack Russel Terrier owned by my friend Amy Swinford. Spanky was a fly ball champion and never went any where without his ball. It just had to be in his rug too.
Susie, the silver Schnauzer was a dog my mom rescued when her elderly owner passed away. My mom eventually came to live with us and so did Susie. I made this rug for my mom for Christmas one year.
And last, is a rug I made for Carl. This is our dog Biscuit as a puppy. She is ten now, so it has been a number of years since I made this one too. This is a Woolley Fox design based on antique rug. I used leftovers of as is wool for the background, hand dyed wool for the dog and the red echo. This rug hangs in the store, I must have confiscated it from Carl at some point. I am sure he doesn't mind. That reminds me, I hooked another rug of Biscuit in a Diane Stoffel class last year. I will find more pics of dog rugs to show you tomorrow.
Til then, wish me luck with Mij tonight. I am sure it will be only a matter of minutes until she will have me trained to her liking too.
