Dogs have always been a part of my life! Growing up, my mom had a dog kennel and bred Collies and Silver Poodles for a while. It was one of her dreams, however she only lasted a few years, because it was too hard to give up the puppies! At first, my siblings each had a dog and I was assigned to the cat, but once I started school and read all those wonderful books about kids and their dogs, I wanted one too. I got the most adorable and good-natured Shih tzu!!!
Years later, we have another adorable and friendly Shih tzu and of course the requisite of suburbia, a yellow Lab. My series of dog pillows are naturally inspired by current and past dog friends; our goofy lab, our spunky Shih tzu, my friend’s beautiful corgi, the friendly labradoodle down the street, “Dusty”, the Westie, and “Pixie”, the Pug.
