Amazing Amigurumi Dogs

If you have ever spent any time on this blog at all, you will know that I love (LOVE) animals. I have *ahem*

  • three dogs - Murphy, Rusty and Sandy
  • five cats - Autumn, Fromage, Bandit, Beethoven and Honey
  • four red eared slider turtles - Tina, Charlie, Keke and Pepe
  • one amazon parrot - Geordilynn
Everyone will make an appearance on my Instagram here and there....Rusty, Murphy, Beethoven, Bandit and Honey are already there.

So you can imagine my surprise when I was perusing Etsy and Wanelo and found these adorable crocheted dogs. I fancy myself a somewhat decent hooker but to make these dogs, that is an impressive skill level, one that I aspire to.

Um, hello??? This looks just like my late Mary dog, a beautiful little pit bull.

This looks like my childhood cocker spaniel, Mindee. We had Mindee all through my teen years and she died at the age of 16.

This could almost be our Sandy. I believe Sandy to be a pharoah hound mix, closely related to the italian greyhound. She even has the white tipped tail!

This looks just like my Rusty!!! He isn't a labradoodle although he might be a terri-poo. Who knows?

She can even do merle colors? Now that is impressive.
