About Me

Hi! I’m Melanie. A wife, a mother of a special needs adult child, a stepmom, a grandmother, a kennel tech in a dog daycare/boarding facility and of course a crocheter. All of these roles I love and am truly grateful to have.

My love of dogs began at a very young age. After being witness to several incidents of abuse against dogs, I promised myself upon growing up, I would do what I could to help the defenseless, give a voice to the voiceless. My first job was in the kennel of a no-kill animal shelter. And there I stayed for twenty years, fulfilling my promise each and every day by giving love and shelter to countless animals that crossed through our doors. Now I work at a dog daycare/boarding facility where I still ensure dogs are taken care of and treated correctly.

My love of crochet began at the age of 11 when my mother, an avid crocheter, taught me the trade. Initial failures eventually became successes. She is no longer in my life but is forever in my heart. I have many fond memories of working with her to hone my skills. I decided to put all those skills to use and combined it with my love of dogs to open an Etsy shop featuring many dog related items, patterns, and more.
