Oh, please give it to her. I'm sure she will love it and will cherish it.
Yeah, she may cry, but because she misses her girl, not because of the present.

I love nonsense - it wakes up the brain cells!

Our beloved farm dog Jenna (and my avatar) lost a leg to cancer on Thursday.  I would love this gift.

I think this would be wonderful.  I definitely think you should give it to her.  If are worried, maybe wait a little bit longer (like a month or two),  But I think no matter what she would love it.

Definitely, definitely give it to her. As a dog lover whose sweet mutt passed away in April of 2010, I can tell you that I still feel the loss acutely. A sweet token such as the lovely felted pooch that you made would be heartily appreciated, and I don't think you need to wait. I would imagine that receiving such a lovely gesture would have made me cry for sure, but would serve as a wonderful reminder in those tough first few months.

As a recently bereaved pet owner, I would have loved for some one as kind and thoughtful as you to have taken the time and care to make me a little plushie of him, a little 'I hope you don't mind....etc I thought it might comfort you' and I'm sure your neighbour will be touched and grateful if she's anything like any of the PP's and me
It's a beautiful example too, and so very kind and thoughtful, you are lovely Smiley

so many crafts... so little time!!!

Thank You guys for Your thoughts!
I gave it to her today and just as You guessed, there was a tears and hugs and she loved it... and it made me feel good, that she has something to hold now, when feeling blue.

Thank You all also for the kind words! Smiley

Can I echo what everyone else has said? I have 5 beloved pets and would be truely touched by this gesture, I dread the day that they leave me

Happiness is the key to success, success is not the key to happiness. If you love what you're doing you will be happy.

As some one who works with animals and has lost a few furry friends, Something like this would mean the world to me. I think she would be very tuched by your kindness. He is too cute by the way, you did a great job.

Nicely done, and I'm glad she liked it. I concur with the above views; the hardest thing with pets is that you can't hold on to them forever, and having a version of mine that I could hold on to would be absolutely cherished.

Whatever happened to the ongoing hoopla swaps?
