New Naughty Dog Puppet


Doesn't my dog, Sam, look positively guilty? He should...he was naughty yesterday. We had a visitor and Sam was a little too "friendly"with this man. This inspired me to make a naughty dog puppet! I even had to label it as "mature" in my listing. I won't devulge or show a picture of this puppet's naughtiness--you'll just have to look at picture #3 on my listing in my artshop. This is the link: rtisan2.


Here are two pics I will show of my new puppet set:







For my listing, I wrote


"He piddles, he poos.
and fetches balls, he even chews.
He will root thru' your garbage, and eat your shoes.
"Hump-hrey" also does what naught dogs do. Oh, Mrs. Cleaver disapproves!"

I was on the forums yesterday and received a ton of suggestions from other etsy sellers about my artshop and many new ideas for puppets. Etsy sellers are the VERY BEST and niciest people I have ever met. They are all so helpful and generous. Thanks everyone!

LOL. Poor Sam. :) But who could be mad at him & he's even doubled as a muse & inspired a whole line. Sam had a plan. ;)

Ok, I'm completely amused by this creation. But I think Sam deserves a doggy treat for being your muse and being so cute. He can't help it!

Beautiful dog! I am such a sucker for the "hey look at me I am so naughty but so cute" pup face. My husband tried to mimick a time or two but doesn't have the same effect. = )
