First wee little needle felted dogs that I gave to J and N for Christmas. They are the best dog people I know, caring for special needs dogs, for crazed sled dogs and for any dog that happens to cross their paths.
On the left the recently dearly departed Sol on the right the madness that is Edisto. Sol was J’s life long best friend, she predates N, she is forever known as ‘best dog’. Edisto is a rescue from a litter of unwanted sled dogs in Whitehorse, YT. She has mysterious anti gravity leaping abilities as well as superspeedy sled dog running abilities. She likes to sleep on the back of the couch like a cat.
This is Birdie my new dog friend! She’s an 8 month old lab/rottweiler mix that was recently turned in to Haines Animal Rescue Kennel. She’s part of a litter that was born just up the hill from here, mom is a dainty rotty and dad a big goofy lab, I met them one morning while they were shopping in my compost pile, a lovely couple.
Apparently Birdie (formerly known as Amber, almost named Spot) was too much for a harried mom who got the dog when her brother left town… typical Haines. My good luck, I have a new friend!
