I am sincerely embarrassed. Months have elapsed with no word on the felted model of Small Dog. Maybe the gorgeous winter weather in Florida kept me outside in the garden rather than adding to this blog. But really the reason is that I abandoned using the felted model as an actual model. I think he turned out cute and of course he moves and holds his poses for an unlimited amount of time. But I found a different approach to character development (which I will share soon) that does not use felted models. So for now, this Small Dog toy sits nexts to my Mac and nudges gently.
