Scruffy's Page
(dog patterns and dog information)


Hello!  My name is Sophie and I'm new around here.  Scruffy crossed the Rainbow Bridge in February of 2008.  I'm a chihuahua, not a poodle, and I don't have Scruffy's dare-devil personality, but I'll try my best as editor of the dog  section.  Since Scruffy talked in brown, I'll talk in purple.  Sandy's words are in black.  Enjoy your visit here.

York, the Sundrop Puppy

York, the Sundrop Puppy, was created just brefore the September 11th tragedy.  Sandy decided to dedicate him to the charity work in honor of those who gave their lives to help others.  He's a great little pattern to use on any charity project made for kids, and adults like him, too.   Click here for the pdf pattern and ideas for using it.  For the old, non-pdf pattern, click here .

Top 10 Things You Should Know About Dogs
(from a dog's point-of-view)


1. Before you get a dog, do some research about different breeds of dogs to find a good match for you and your family.  For example, I'm a toy poodle and I'm a great dog, but toy poodles aren't great pets for everyone.  I talk a lot (so I've been told) and I need frequent grooming.  Some breeds like to sit on people's laps, while other breeds like to run all day.  If you live in the city, you shouldn't get a dog that likes to herd sheep!

2.  Do lots of additional research about the breed you choose and about training a dog.  There are lots of dog training methods and lots of them are good methods, but all methods are not good for all people or all dogs.  Find some methods that you are comfortable using.

3.  Get your puppy or dog from a breeder with a good reputation or adopt a dog from a shelter or a rescue home.  Avoid getting a puppy from a puppy mill (they're NOT very nice places).

4.  Make your home ready for a dog or puppy before you bring your dog or puppy home.  You will need dishes for food and water, a nice soft blanket or a squishy quilt, a bed of some kind, a leash and a collar or a harness (but don't get this until you know what size to get).  If you're getting a puppy, you'll also need a baby gate or an exercise pen or a kennel to keep a puppy safe from dangerous things.  And you'll need pee pads or newspapers for the puppy to pee and poop on.  And safe toys for puppies to chew on when they're teething.

5.  Take your new puppy or dog to the vet for a visit and a good physical exam.  Ask your vet questions about vaccines, spay/neutering (if needed) and the needs and concerns of your dog's breed.  All dogs are not alike.  Some breeds have special health issues (like bloating) that you should know about.  This doesn't make them a bad choice - it just means you should know ahead of time so you'll know what to do if that issue appears.


6.  Fleas.  They drive us all nuts, I know.  But please read about the chemicals used in those flea repellent products and choose carefully.  Some of them are more harmful than the fleas!

7.  There are lots of other things you humans use or eat that can make us dogs really sick (like chocolate).  Some of them, like anti-freeze, can kill us!  So read about them and make your home and outdoor environment as safe as you can.

8.  Feed us good food, please.  You know how the grocery stores sell a lot of food for humans that's called "junk food?"  Well, there's a lot of "junk food" on the market for pets, too.  It has a lot of stuff that we really don't need and not enough of the good stuff that we do need.  Find out how to tell good food from bad food and then start reading labels.  Also, we dogs like to eat some of the same healthy foods you humans eat - we even like some vegetables!

9.  Grooming is important.  Find a good groomer or learn to groom your dog yourself.  And help us take good care of our teeth.  Bad teeth and gum disease can cause lots of other health problems.  There are lots of ways to help us clean our teeth: dry food, raw vegetables, big bones that we can gnaw but can't chew or swallow, chew toys made especially for dogs.  You can even buy doggy toothpaste and brush our teeth the same way you brush your teeth (if you're brave enough to do it!).

10.  Play with us.  Spend time with us.
 All of us, even the itty-bitty ones, need some exercise every day.  And we dogs are very social creatures.  We love being with our families.  We love to play with them and relax with them.  And we also like to have our brains challenged now and then, so play games with us and give us toys that make us think.  Some people call us "fur-kids" - I guess we are a lot like kids.  We need to be cared for, loved, trained, and given a proper education appropriate to our abilities.
