Bull terrier

Our little friend dropped a few (not so subtle) hints

that she wanted a dog like Henry and Joe’s for her fourth birthday.

I of course, happily obliged

and the dog was greeted with much delight.

But now her brother has asked me for a Bulldog…

the word is out

and we know a lot of children

if you need me I’ll be knitting dogs.

    Sweet Myrtle I think their cat book is coming out later this year. Maybe you could buy it as a ‘gift’ for Janet? 😉

    he’s gorgeous – tons of personality. Sounds like you’ll be mustering up the cast of crufts over the next few weeks!

    The jaunty ears are fantastic. How is it that clever use of yarn can make charisma?

    He’s lovely. You have much more patience than me. I usually just make one thing for one child and then I have to make something different for his or her sibling because otherwise I get bored. Which, as I now know, might result in warfare. So maybe I should mend my ways.
