My dad loves dachshunds.
They are lovable little dogs, with a stubborn streak which can be made up by their love of snuggling.
This doll was made with one of our old pets, named Wilhelm or Willie for short, in mind. He was the sweetest little dog. He passed away when I was in middle school, after having an accident. I still miss him.
Anyways, he was a playful little fellow, completely one of a kind.
So when my dad's birthday rolled around I knew just what to make him. It is kind of a tradition that I give my dad something dachshund related on his special day, and this crocheted one just had to be made. It was easy to make, and quite quick too. Loved making it.
Lily tried to snatch him while I was photographing this. Then she had the audacity to smack the camera.
She is not amused.
