thats a great photo, I love what you picked out and the furry stuff too goes well!
I finished the front and I plan to use a different color yarn for the back to better make the fun fur stuff blend, so the paler green doesn't show through and make him look like he's balding. So I have to wind that yarn into a hank and get back to it! this helps motivate me hehe. Yours looks great! My next step is knitting hte contrasting paws.
