As I was desperately trying to fall asleep last night I channel surfed my way onto the show Man Shops Globe, which I completely forgot I wanted to watch {and is now on season 2} on The Sundance Channel. Though I was already 15minutes late to the party, I stopped in anyway.

Keith Johnson was in Scotland traveling from city to city looking for treasures to auction off at a charity event he was hosting that helps adopt dogs called Main Line Animal Rescue in PA. His last stop was in Edinburgh to visit with Domenica More Gordon, who hand-felts these amazingly detailed and emotion provoking little dogs after meeting with dog owners and sketching the pets first. Needless to say, Keith was taken aback a bit when he drove up to what I can only refer to as a perfectly romantic castle …which is really neither here nor there but ads to the romanticism in my opinion I suppose, as a boring, castle-less American.

All her amazing little felted creatures are sold out and not available online but there are cards for sale {see all cards here} which is where most of these images came from. If you’re a pro-felter {or willing to learn} there are two Dog Felting Kits for sale which I am on the fence about buying ONLY because I have no idea how to felt. This may just be my opportunity to learn though. I love the little guy above that looks like a Pug/French Bulldog mix, for obvious reasons of course and would most definitely jump the fence to buy the a kit for it, but that’s not an option.

The two kits that are available look very similar to the dogs that sold at the charity auction for $6,500 & $9000 each. In total, Keith’s auction raised over $40K for the dogs …and in summary, I’m glad I couldn’t sleep …for the next 15 minutes, anyway 😉 or I would have completely missed all this.

Note: The episode of Man Shops Globe featuring Domenica is from July 7, 2010
