Here is the last design that I did for the 2010 Dishcloth Calendar. I meant to post it earlier, but unfortunately, my mom had a possible heart attack this past week and, needless to say, I've been busy travelling to and from the hospital. She seems to be fine, but is facing a battery of tests to get to the exact cause. She's strong and has some wonderful doctors, so I'm sure we'll have a positive outcome. Anyway, this guy is actually the first pattern that I did, but I wasn't sure I was going to include him. In the end, I decided that he really does fit in well with the other two designs.
I had a hard time coming up with a name, so I just call it "Puppy Love". When he's done in red, or in this case, persimmon, I think he kind of resembles Clifford the Big Red Dog, although that wasn't my intention!
It's difficult to come up with a dog design that will appeal to most dog lovers, as they usually have a favorite or specific breed. Someone has to stand up for the mutts though, and hopefully, this guy will suffice.
