    I crocheted a Miffy rabbit for my D-in-L and I made a mister fortywinks clown for Dylan before he was born . I have a pattern for a Westie (Alan Dart) he also did the pattern for the fairy, I know he has patterns for different dogs, I will have to go and have another look on his website, right been to the alandart.co.uk website and these are the dog patterns he has

    Poodle
    Border collie
    Dacshund
    Dalmation
    Westie (my next project)
    Springer Spaniel
    Yorkshire Terrier and
    Lab Retriever
    I certainly recommend people go have a look at the site, his knitted wedding cake, scarecrow (a crow dressed in a hat and tunic) and teddies are wonderful.

    He is so clever, I can follow a pattern but wouldn't know where to start designing one.
