I think I'm going to make a stuffed animal based on my dog. Nosey Flynn is a Glen of Imaal Terrier, a breed which originates in Ireland. I found a cute little Scottie Dog on Chrysanthemum (which she got from Allsorts blog) and I think I can convert it to look like a Glen. Stuff the head a little bigger, make bendy fold over ears ... Might work. Here's a photo of the stuffed dog, then the real thing.

The real thing. Note fold over ears.
