The pup in the foreground is *technically* my mom's Chihuahua, Harley. He's a very well-loved three year old dog who thinks he's a person and he adores my dad more than anyone (he was given to my mom so, technically, he's my mom's).

He doesn't mind being put in a sweater but if you put anything else on him, he flops over as if he's done with life. Since my mom wishes he'd let her dress him up in cute things for the holidays, I set out to find a crochet pattern for a Chihuahua. I found "Lucky the Chihuahua Dog Amigurumi" on Ravelry by user Doris Yu. I followed it except for the color pattern for the dog since Harley's color pattern is very different.

I should have embroidered his toe spots instead of crocheting them because they turned out too big but he's still cute.
Now all I have to do is make up some cute little holiday themed accessories for him (Christmas hat, Easter bunny ears, trick-or-treat bag, etc) and I'll be able to give him to my mom. She loved the pic so I know she'll love him even more when I give him to her along with the little dress up goodies. Smiley
I'll update this post when I get the little extras complete.
I'll also be making a dress-up ami of my sister's Chihuahua, Max, who is the other Chi in the photo.

So sweet. He looks very like his namesake.

I got 99 problems, but a stitch ain't one.

Glad you ladies like him Smiley
My mom says she's wondering how he's going to react to seeing "another dog".

The real dog is cute, the amigurumi one is as cute. What a fun idea to make seasonal accessories for him. I would love to see him in boarders shorts with sunglasses and his ball for a summer stroll on the beach. You even might have to make him a friend! You and your mom will have so much fun with it.

I started on Max the other day. I'll probably finish him in a few days or so. Then I'll make sets of accessories for them.

I like Kit-Kat, unless I'm with 4 or more people.
