I wish that I had created a memorial for my dog when she passed. This is a fantastic project for your mom!

Aww, that's so sweet of you. We lost our dog of 16 years a year ago, and so often memories of him flood my mind and I start sobbing. It sucks!
I kept a bunch of his fur from the last time I had given him a trim. I kept it in a container and was planning to do something with it but it got really smelly for some reason so i threw it out. Maybe it was because it was kept in plastic, I dunno.
Anyway, great job and I hope your mom feels better soon.

I especially love this bc it looks so much like my Sheba. I work for a veterinary clinic and whenever we do a euthanasia, we make an imprint of their paw in sculpy and send it to them with a sympathy card. Crafts are a wonderful way to remember a special pet.

I was wondering if you'd ever posted this to craftster! Great stitching! Adding the fur to the stuffing was such a great idea.
(currently saving some of my kitty's fur for when the time comes to make a tribute to him...although I'm hoping to have many many more years with him yet)

oh...and I forgot, it was a pleasure to do the pattern! Animals are a favorite of mine & this was fun to work on. I'm so glad you asked me!  Wink

This is a great idea! And it looks so good! We have a bit of fur from all of the dogs we've had, so I think putting some in pillow was a great idea. My mom actually made a vase with the dog she has now (who's 16) using the technique where you add horse hair and then kiln it.
