Welcome Eddie! You are a marvel and a heartmelter. I am in the world of dog lovers now (thanks to our sweet Gaspard) so I have learned to recognise an adorable soul when I see one.

What a wee character, with a sparkle about his eyes. I can tell he is a top level nicker of all canine toys.

Planet Penny

He's gorgeous! The look in his eye is one I see frequently when Higgins runs off with something he shouldn't...usually a sock!
Love Penny xxx

Dennis Marquez

What an amazing piece of work :-) You've got a lovely blog!


Vanessa, you've done it again! Mr E Spaghetti is a delightful sprite-filled pup.

Your ability to inject such personality into these little figures that begin as pulp just amazes me.

I look forward to the next one, and the one after that, and on and on. xo


Too Dang CUTE!!!


I wish he was mine too - that is one perfect brooch, Vanessa. You just keep making perfect things. Happy and joyful creating!
