Knit Your Own Dog: Easy-to-Follow Patterns for 25 Pedigree Pooches, by Sally Muir and Joanna Osborne is something I saw in the bookstore window, and I just had to have it.
The patterns include Greyhounds, Dachshunds, Irish Setters, Corgies, Sheepdogs Labrador Retrievers, and many others. Knit them all! And these dogs don't need to be house broken or walkies, rope bones or even milk bones!
This is the English Sheepdog.
This is the Corgi.
And of course, the black and tan Dachshund.
I'm going to search through my stash and see what I've got to make some of these pooches. A thundering herd of Dachshunds would make me very happy.
