the work of Emma Dodd and this particular story of Dog's Colorful Day was just right
for me. The basic plot is that an out-and-about dog gets messy with mud, food and other spilling/dropping/splashing messes.
I made colorful felt spots with velcro attached on the back side so that the green woolly dog can get messy, too. His ending can also match the ending in the picture book, but I am not going to tell you what it is because I don't believe in being a story spoiler!
And now I wish you well as we enter the dog days of August. Here in these parts we have been having some roasty, toasty and humid days - all the better to be inside stitching up a storm of colorful dog spots!
