Customs, customs and more customs! Suddenly, I am booked into April and working feverishly to get each order completed. I spend a good deal of time on each one to make sure I get the markings right, the stitches tight, and the overall personalities of each dog captured as best I can. I owe a good deal of my orders to Angel City Pits, who have featured Original Sock Dogs on their Facebook wall and sent many Pittie peeps my way. I have to admit, I really enjoy making those pit bull sock dogs. Not only are they perfect for the medium, but I love making something silly and sweet that's pit bull related. Everyone should know how wonderful these dogs can be!
Here's a recent Pittie custom sock dog:
Kaya was described like this by her mom:
When we came home from work, she loved to twirl around in excitement, earning her the nickname ballerina. She also grunted really loud like a little piggy when she smelled something really tasty. Kaya loved to play in the mud and instigated a surprise mud fight among her brothers (Kenai and Juneau) in our backyard.
I dare anyone not to fall in love with a dog like that! I hope that in some small way, Original Sock Dogs is helping to improve the image of this breed. I love 'em all.
