And speaking of puppies, I have a smaller version of the crochet Pomp-a-Poodle coming out. I'm calling it "Pomp-a-Puppy" (or should I call it "Pompy-pup"?). It is made with the same Red Heart Super Saver & Pomp-a-doodle yarn as the larger version but stands only about 11". Perfect size for little hands to hold.
Here's a rough draft of her.
