For Furry Friends

Well, this is what I got up to today!  I had two remnants of fleece I had picked up on my travels with doggy footprints on them.  I considered making an outfit for little Bear, one of my Pomeranians, but dd begged me not to embarrass the dog that way.  So, what I did instead was to sketch up a nice size dog bone and use up the fabric making these dog toys.

As you can see, my little remnants which totalled under .75 of a meter altogether yielded a nice pile of doggy treats.  These will go to Heaven Can Wait, a local animal shelter that does not euthanize their "unadoptable" dogs and cats.  If they are not adopted, they stay and live out their lives in the homelike surroundings of the shelter. 

Once I had cut out all the dog bones I could from the fabric, I used the scraps to make some cat toys as well.  These are modelled after one the kittens were given in their "new kitty kit" from the vet.  These will go along to Heaven Can Wait as well and hopefully they will give some fun and comfort to some animals waiting to find their "forever home".

Awwww! So cute! How thoughtful to think of the animals in the shelter and to show them a little love. Kudos.

Those are so adorable!!! I know dogs will love them. What a great idea to send them to a shelter. We just adopted a 2yr old, 6 pound chihuahua/rat terrier mix from a no kill shelter here in town, he along with a truck load of others were sent from kill shelters in Las Vegas to Reno. He is the cutest most cuddly boy we have ever seen, he was very underweight when we got him, but he is looking so much healthier. It was so great to adopt a pet who really needed a home. They just want loving families who will care for them.

Very wonderful Kerry:):):)
