The custom Pittie orders keep on rolling in, and I love it! They really are fun sock dogs to make with their big ol' heads and paws and their great markings. Pauly is one that I just finished up. He was wandering the rough and tough streets in LA for a while before he was rescued and is now living the good life.
When I first started making the customs, the owner of a retail shop I'd partnered up with advised me (quite strongly) against it. She said that I didn't want to bother with custom orders and the endless rounds of changes that would accompany them. Fortunately, I ignored her advice and I have to say, it has been one of the best parts of this journey. Meeting so many people who are so devoted to their dogs (and cats), sharing in their happy stories and giving them something to help them through a loss...it has enriched my life and my work in ways I never expected and for which I am truly grateful.
