A New Addition

You've recently met a Sock dog that has been holding a big spot in our hearts these last 4+ years, Darry.

He's been a true best friend to Freddie and they've basically done everything together. He's irreplaceable.
If you follow me on Instagram you'll know a couple of weeks ago that Darry got a new friend, who Freddie has named, Sniggy. He named him the second he saw a photo of this new companion and simply couldn't wait for his arrival.

I'm very lucky to have talented friends in my life and one of my bestest ones is unbelievably amazing with a sewing machine (plus a needle and thread, oh not forgetting fabric printing!). She creates so many beautiful crafts, all handmade, you should check her out here!

Freddie had been crazing me for a while regarding a friend for Darry. "He gets lonely when I'm at Nursery" "I think he gets bored when he's on his own" whined Freddie in a, strangely cute voice.
I knew I had to see what I could and I thought the idea would be really sweet.
Why not? We've got something special from Darry, we could extend it.

I messaged Bobby and asked if she would be able to make a sock dog. Sending over measurements as a guide and generally looking forward to what she come up with. I never doubted it would be really cute and perfectly made - I wasn't wrong.
He dropped in the letterbox and Freddie was beside himself.
All afternoon we heard of adventures..

"Darry doesn't like Sniggy I don't think.."

"I think Sniggy is Deaf because he didn't listen to me when I said 'No'"

"Woof Woof Woof - Darry and Sniggy are playing catch."
I have to say he's settled in well, he comes everywhere with us (unless he stays at home with Darry) and we always get asked what the pair have been up to when he's at Nursery.. we indulge him with a couple of tales ;)

I think he makes a damn good little brother.
Welcome to the family, Sniggy.
(I oddly love his name!)
