First off, I apologize for the mix of topics, I know I have cooking/pet stuff/glass stuff all in one but I am most proud of the jar so I am posting it here.

For a little back story on this piece, I have a friend/coworker who recently had to take in another dachshund that her daughter could not keep. Lo and behold, puppies!  She had six puppies, and promised me one of them (my fiance and I were looking to adopt a puppy, but who could resist one of these sweeties?).  After they were born two of them were unable to find homes.  One of the girls had a little "handicapped" paw that did not form just right, and there was also a boy.  We decided to take the both the boy and the girl we were previously promised.  My friend kept the "handicapped" girl as her own.  Fast forward to several weeks later, I believe they are 7 weeks old now, we have both pups at home and we are so grateful for both of them, they are great.  I wanted to give my friend something special as a thank you for them (seriously, where can you get two pure bred miniature dachshund pups for free before Christmas?)  so I decided to bake her some dachshund shaped cookies.  Then I needed something to hold the cookies.  After a trip to The Container Store, I knew what I had to make. 

A personalized etched glass cookie/treat jar with little wieners!


First side - "Ginger" (the momma dog) and a dachshund silhouette


Second side - Dog bones


Third side - "Sophie" (the little handicapped pup) and a dachshund silhouette


Fourth side - more dog bones.  Originally I wanted to do one side with bones and one with paw prints, but the bones were so easy to cut out with the knife and I was getting tired after all this plus baking a huge batch of cookies. 

Oh and of course, the cookies!


Ok, they look a little like buffalo after the cooked..


But the smaller ones look like little wieners!


And... sorry I know this doesn't belong but I HAVE to show off the new additions to our family - Wednesday (top) and Dexter (bottom)

What a great Xmas present - and a great thank you!
Your etching came out great.  That is one craft I have yet to even think about trying.  I want to but man it really just looks out of my league!
I'm assuming you used a cookie cutter - but if you didn't - I am pretty sure that foosecookiecutters. com sells that breed.  I got a greyhound cutter from them years ago when I still had my hounds.  I need to get a poodle one now I suppose!

Loving the cookie jars!

Thanks guys, my friend and her dogs loved it.  And yes, I did use a cookie cutter for the cookies, but I got them over on eBay, so I might just have to check out that site and see what they have too, thanks!
