Pawnshoppromises: Hehehe, so glad you liked everything. It was really fun making the dashund, esp. I'm glad because if it weren't for you I wouldn't have given that pattern a try.
Catpants: Nope, no story behind the 6 rats and the doggie. Just wanted to help add to the rat army.
Lady Llanalla: Thank you! Pawnshoppromises is the one who is spoiling me though. Wait till you see her crochet magic.
