The first stuffed toy I made 5 years ago,
for my grandson, Ethan,
was a little Dachshund
which he still keeps with him in his bed.
Little children do love stuffed toys.
I made this second one (bigger than Ethan's one),
for little Hannah who is 18 months old.
She loves cats, dogs and birds.
When our 4 daughters were young,
we had pets like tortoise, rabbits and dogs at home.
Dachshund, one of our pet dog, is light brown in colour.
It was given by my brother-in-law, Doa Ming when he and his family were residing in Ipoh.
Dachshund is a very smart dog so we gave him the name -
It was a playful dog which my children loved to play with.
He barked loudly
and chased away cats and birds from the compound.
He would catch and bite snakes and bring it to the door to show us!
my girls would be screaming away!
