Some people own a dog, whilst others are owned by their dogs – but either way the relationship between each is unique and special. Dogs come into our lives, bringing with them a level of devotion never before experienced . They make us laugh at their antics and funny ways, and when they leave us after a life-too-short, they break our hearts and leave our homes empty and echoing.

This book is a love story between people and their dogs, showcasing the special bond and relationship that is not only a privilege but a blessing. Stephanie’s re-telling of the stories, together with her lovingly-made felt models, demonstrate her respect for this unique relationship.. The stories are based on real dogs, who have been lovingly recreated by Stephanie as handmade felt models. A book that will appeal to both creative felt-makers and dog lovers alike.

Stephanie – a qualified teacher, who has worked with primary school-aged children for over 25 years – has a serious passion for art and creativity. She taught herself how to make felt once her own children had started school, as she loves traditional crafts and enjoys learning new skills. Her attention to detail meant that she quickly developed her skills, and moved on to lifelike representations of animals, particularly dogs. Stephanie cares for four dogs who belong to other people, as well as her own beloved Border Terrier, Heidi, to whom she is devoted. All of the dogs she cares for are a constant source of inspiration and fun.
