It’s For the Dogs Crochet- Thursday Roundup

I am a dog lover. I have two dogs, who are very much part of the family and I feel as though they are furry children. They are wonderful companions, especially when my husband was deployed and the non-furry children were in bed for the night.

From left to right: Titus (9), our pointer/?(border collie or blue heeler?) mix.  Birdog (or Birdie, 10): pointer/lab mix.  She left us about a year ago and dearly missed.  Allie (6): Our new addition last Aug.  Also a pointer/lab mix.  As sweet as our Birdie was.  (Also the same age as our younger son lol).

I just love the idea of round ups! What a great way to promote each other and share the awesome, hard work of others! There is so much talent out there. So I decided that I would make Thursday my round up day and hope to add a weekly weekly linky party in the near future on Thursdays also. Some weeks it might be crochet, other times plastic canvas or wreaths, or anything else that comes to mind 🙂

For my very first round up theme, I chose crocheted Easter eggs. If you haven’t seen some of these amazing eggs, you are in for a non-fattening treat!
