As a side note, in V of each dog's neck their own hair is hooked in. When they were alive and groomed I'd save their hair in individual baggies with this intent. Yes, Rotties have short hair so wouldn't be good for spinning into yarn UNLESS you have a friend who spins and used a very thin piece of wool roving to blend in the spinning process. That friend was Leslie Covney of Florida who has since departed.
When looking at the hooked piece you can see their hair texture and it was hooked where the color changed between the brown and black. I love this and am proud of my work. The dogs were hooked in #3 wool strips but learned to hate narrow cut so did the background in #5 cut.
I've willed this piece to my ex but if he is departed it is to go to my local veterinary hospital for the euthanasia room.
Oh, just as soon as that rug was bound and hung on my wall I drew out a PRIMITIVE design depicting my girl and boy and hooked it in #8...my kind of cut. Well it was my cut back then but have since gone larger.Happy weekend everyone.
