dog crochet patterns

Today is National Take Your Dog to Work Day, so it’s all about man’s best friend! We have an adorable Dingo amigurumi, a Puppy Lovey, Xolo the Mexican Hairless amigurumi, a Dog amigurumi that can be made with scrap yarn, and a Poodle Eyeglass Holder that I modeled after my mom’s dog, Bridgett.
