Now you need to knit a hot dog bun so you can have an in-bread dog.

Such a cute doggie!! I totally agree on sewing--least favorite part. I make most things one piece to avoid it.

ADORABLE! Something like this would make a great pin cushion, too! The fact that he sits so low to the table top would make him very convenient to hold pins, yarn needles, cable needles, skinny dpn's, etc!

Oh ArtLady, how could you put pins in poor little wienerdog!

I offered him to my friend (who bought me the book) as a gift for her daughter, who is 2. I wasn't sure if he would be appropriate. She loves the little dog and said it would be fine.

Adorable!....and I believe that crookedness in stuffed animals only adds to their unique appeal.

One year when I was wintery-depressed, I started to make sewn wiener dogs, ended up completing twelve of them. My then 18-year old daughter told me that she was seriously worried about me, when, every other day she'd come home from school and there would be a new stuffed dog. I made each in a different colored tartan, and called them "Scottie dogs".

Every one of her friends loved these, and I ended up giving them all away! I am sure there are twelve people out there still enjoying those cuties.

and OMG, Grumpy Grandma - is that a real dog in your house? Toooooo cute!

You've got to hide your calculator so no one grabs it. My favorite place to stash things at home is under the kitchen sink with the cleaning stuff. Nobody but me ever goes there.

That is great. I can't wait until I get into those advanced things. Knit a little fire hydrant for him so then the leg looks like he is taking a tinkle.
