My son has a little obsession with puppies, he has many store bought puppies lining his shelf and his bed, however, I wanted to make him one that was really special. One that couldn't just be purchased at the store. One that was made with time and love. I asked him if he had a puppy what color would it be, brown. What would his collar look like and he said 'red with a heart so that he would know how much I loved him and I would know how much he loved me.' This is what I came up with and am so excited to show him his special puppy. I hope you enjoy this pattern and that the little one that you make it for is just as surprised and happy to have such a thoughtful gift made with your hands and heart.
