Puppy Knits

So today I have puppies on the brain, as I was enjoying my morning coffee, podcast, and complicated knitting project time I had a special delivery ... a six month old King Charles Spaniel puppy named Sophie that will be spending the week with us while her dads have gone to Bermuda. As many of you know we have a pup around our house, a nearly three year old bichon frisee named Tosh (how did my baby get that old?).

It brought me to realize that we knit for ourselves, our friends, our family, and children are definitely very common recipients of knitware, but what about the dogs in our lives? So this Thursday, in celebration of Sophie's arrival I figured I would focus pattern Thursday on dog inspired knits.
