Sasha, the little dog belonging to my grand-daughter, passed away just prior to Christmas. Sasha was a fox terrier cross and went everywhere with Emma, to work, and out visiting friends and family. This little bundle of energy was much loved and will be sadly missed. Unfortunately, she met an untimely end when one of Emma’s horses got spooked and stepped back on the little dog. It was an unfortunate accident and Emma is understandably heartbroken.
This sad event has put me in a bit of a quandary. I had stitched a little dog blanket for Emma and Sasha as a Christmas gift, on which I appliquéd Sasha’s name. It is made of polar fleece and the name is appliquéd on four sides, using both black and dog bone fabric. It is big enough to fit in a basket, or a carry crate. If Emma gets another puppy in the future, I am sure she will not name her new dog Sasha again. So I am offering my new unused dog blanket to anyone (or perhaps a family member) who has a dog called Sasha. Please leave me a comment about your dog if you would like to go in the draw for the blanket. I want it to be used and loved.
