Our rescue dog story
All of our doggos are rescues and they have brought so much joy to our lives. Bucket (our brown boy that always models) was found on the side of the road in Texas while I was driving cross country. He was only about 4 weeks old and I just couldn’t leave him behind. He has the sweetest disposition and is such a lovey boy.
We adopted Moxxi (our black lab / aussie shepherd / border collie mix) from a local shelter in April of 2021. She completed our family and was the doggo that inspired all of my snarf scarf designs.
And, Roscoe is a 13 year old chi-weenie mix that was also adopted at 8 weeks old from our local shelter. All of these babies have brought so much love, laughter and amazing energy to our family.
I just love all of these patterns and know that I’ll be making some for Bucket, Moxxi and Roscoe. So, which ones will you make?
