Battersea Dogs Home

Anyone that knows me, will know how much I love my dog Archie. He is the boss in our home, and me and hubby are always spoiling him.  I have recently been watching the TV programme Paul O'Grady: For the Love of Dogs. This programme has been centred around Battersea Dogs Home.  I think nearly every episode I've watched I have cried, as I just can't believe how cruel people can be to dogs, but those poor dogs still have so much love to give.  Its amazing what you can find in blogland.  Before this programme aired, I had found a knitting pattern called Purly Paw Print Patchwork Blanket designed by Lauren O'Farrell, which as the title says is a blanket to make for a lonely dog. I saved it for a to do later. After just watching the first episode I decided that the knitting needles had to come out and this is the finished blanket.  15 plain squares, and 15 with a paw print in small, medium and large. This will now be winging its way to Battersea to give a dog some comfort.
