How sweet of you! I love dogs...my hubby loves cats more! Our favorite pet since we've been married was Big Kitty! So much personality and fun! We think he had 2 homes...came to our door at night to sleep at the end of our bed! Thanks for the fun! ♥

Such cute little doggie gifts. I am a dog lover for sure. Our newest dog, Piper, was a real find at the pound a year ago. We had just lost our other SPringer two months before. We had looked at the pound, left , and returned one hour later to find him there waiting for us. He is such a sweetheart and we are so thankful that we found him. I am and have been a follower of your sweet blog.

Oh, I could never pick a favorite! All three of my dogs are so different and loveable in their own ways. My sweetie pie is Sammi who is shy and smoosh-faced and adorable. Fletch is wild until you get him alone, and then he's just a lover. His bad-assness is all for show. And Eli is just so pretty and furry and has to be the one closest to you even if that means sitting on your head, literally.

Your little Pearl is adorable. Great pic.

Thanks for the sweet giveaway opportunity. Please put my name in the hat!

I'm a follower and have been for awhile. I'm a dog lover and we have a husky named Max. He is the greatest he lets my grand daughter climb and lay all over him and he just takes it. He would do anything for her.

I would love to win that polka dotty doggy, because my husband won't let me have a real one! My favorite pet is our parakeet, Petunia Pearl, but I wish I had a furry pet instead!

Elizabeth and Gary said...

Hi Carrie,
What a fun gift..
Our beloved pet "Kona the Dog" was a family member for almost 15 years..we loved her so much and still have her picture sitting out on the table. When ever we think of her we just smile...Kona was a person not a dog..she was our protector and our friend.
I am a follower :)
Have a sweet day and hugs, Elizabeth

Shelley Davis said...

Hi Carrie,

We have the best little puppy, Ralphie. We got him from a rescue. He was suppose to be a Yorkie,Bechon mix. He was the cutest little ball of fur when he came home. His ears stuck straight up and he looked like a Yorkie. Fast forward 6 months. We now see that he is a Yorkie/Daucshand. He is so funny looking. His ears stick straight out to the side now and he has an extra long body. He's a Dorkie. We are in love. We couldn't have ask for a cuter, sweeter little dog.

Such a sweet gift. I thought I was a follower (after all, I do follow you already). Just made it official.
Your little Pearl is a cutie.
Our favorite dog was a cocker/lab mix named Piddles.(she earned her name regularly)She lived to be 16 and even though we have had a lot of pets, none could replace her in our hearts.

Debby@Just Breathe said...

Love the gifts you are giving away. I am a follower. How can I pick a favorite. We have had several dogs. Two Yellow Labs, three Westies, One Yorkie and now my Skye who is a Cairn Terrier.
(Names: Abby, Zack, Lisa, Casey, Maggie, Angel and Skye) They have all been the best!!!

Abbey and Kevin said...

I love the Doggie! Great job! Our favorite animal would be my mom's chihuahua which miraculous survived their house fire. And Rowan is incredibly partial to Katie's bird, Chickadee. :) I am going to post a link to your giveaway on our blog and will let you know when it is up!

OMG that dog you made is fantastic! I love the fabric you used. My favorite dog is gone now but we had a king chocolate doberman that was the sweetest, bestest dog ever!

LV said...

Pets are wonderful and yours is certainly a cutie. After the loss of our last one, I will not have anymore. Too mush grief for me.

That is adorable. You are very talented.

Monica said...

Your little Scotty dogs are so cute. My favorite pet was probably my little lamb, cocoa, when I was just a little girl. I loved her so much, she really didn't realize that she was a lamb, she just thought she was part of the family.

Speedy Lady said...

This is my first time visiting your blog. It IS a sweet place to visit. I love the stuffed Scotty Dog. My favorite pet belongs to my daughter and her husband. He is a Chihuahua mix named Jack. He's so sweet and gentle and adorable!
I am now a follower! :)

C-ingspots said...

Thank you so much for visiting my blog the other day! And, thank you for inviting me over here...very nice blog you've got! Your little dog is adorable...aren't they just the greatest friends ever? Animals are a huge blessing in my life, and I don't want to ever be without them. My beautiful dog Annie, is very special to me. She's at my side always and loves me unconditionally! She's a big, yellow lab with milk chocolate brown eyes that look forever sad...but don't let that fool you - she's one happy and loveable girl!
Happy Spring!!
