Good Morning! I had a member ask me to tell about
what I have started with Pug Rescue. I just learned
to crochet and I am doing little blankets for Pug
Rescue. I do them for Homeward Bound Pug Rescue
in Oklahoma and Pug Hearts in Texas. I use pretty
much any yarn I can find at a good price. The blankets
go to the puggies that are in the worst condition and
need their own little blanket to love. Right now I am
using a pattern called Bev's Five Day Blanket, lol, not
5 days for me. I look for patterns all the time that
are fast and easy. I like them to be about 3ft. square.
Sometimes I do a little bigger. The one I am working on now is for a sweet little guy named Don Vito. His
owner had to go to Iraq and had to give him up to
rescue. He has since become a very sick little boy.
Here is a pic, the first one, so not too hot lol;)

You know, the puggies don't need perfect, they just need to feel the love you've put into their blankies.

Your blankets are lovely! I make dog blankets for rescue too - Boston Terriers, another smooshy faced breed! LOL I belong to a Boston Terrier board and anytime someone adopts a senior Boston, I send a blanket. The seniors are often overlooked - you know everybody wants a puppy.

Over the last 3 years, I have donated more than 200, not to mention friends and family wanting blankets too! LOL

Your blankets are more time consuming than what I make....I use fleece and crochet a border all around - can make one in an evening while watching TV.

Keep up the good work.

What is a snuggle? My dog is a rescue, and I would like to make something for the shelter she came from. Thanks.

Awww, God Bless You for thinking of these little guys and for doing something to offer them some comfort! I almost cried when I read about little Don Vito! Poor little guy!

I've been working in animal rescue for more than 30 years now, with primarily cats but we also help dogs of all breeds that need help. It's so heartbreaking to think of them needing a family to love and to love them back, but when they HAVE that, and something as senseless as war takes it away from them, that's just too much to bear! It's difficult enough for us humans to deal with, and we understand what it all means, but it's just so heartbreaking for them, because all they know is that their little worlds have been turned upside down, and they have no idea why.

:hug:hug:hug:hug to you for trying to make their lives a little easier.
