The Original

When I sat down to draw a logo for my blog, I knew exactly who would be the muse for Fabric Mutt: my sister's beloved toy miniature dachshund, Naomi. This afternoon, my sister and I had to take Naomi to the vet to be put to sleep. She was almost fifteen years old and in very bad health, yet I can still see her as a tiny puppy being rocked to sleep in my sister's arms.

Good-bye, little one. You will be so dearly missed.


  1. So sorry to hear about Naomi, we have dogs and I know what you're going through, big hugs ((xxx))

  2. Oh, I'm so sorry to hear about Naomi's passing... As one who cares for an old doxie (though he's a "hybrid," meaning a doxie mix), I can imagine what a smart, loving, loyal dog Naomi no doubt was. My thoughts go out to you and your sister.

  3. So sorry to hear about Naomi, your muse. It is so hard to say goodbye to a loved one.

  4. :0(. So sorry for your loss. But glad you got to have such a great puppy friend.

  5. So sorry...she was adorable! We had a mini dachshund for 14 years, too. I still have dreams about her sometimes - she was truly loved!
