Recently, I received a very exciting request all the way from Hawaii. I was asked to create a plush version of "Ahi", the very cute canine mascot for Icy Pooch Pops, a company specializing in super cool doggy treats.
Here's the Original Sock Dog interpretation:
Plush Ahi will be auctioned off at the Hawaii Pet Expo, May 9 & 10 in Honolulu. The highest bidder will take Ahi home and the money raised will go to help Hawaii's shelter pets. How fantastic is that? You can get in on the action, too...to submit an online bid, just send an email titled "Adopt Ahi Bids" to email@example.com.
Even better--in addition to this first Ahi, I've been asked to make 12 more for future fundraising efforts! (I'm thinking I may need to act as a chaperone when they travel to the islands. haha)
