Wire Fox Terrier Stuff #2

The second item in my collection to feature in this occasional series is a knitted wire fox terrier called Barksdale. He was made by Sally Muir & Joanna Osborne. Although I'm not usually a fan of cuddly toys, I like Barksdale because he's a bit quirky. He almost makes me want to break out my knitting needles!
I was amused by the comment on their website which says "The knitted fox terrier is very much better behaved than the real version, almost as adorable and you can take him for walks in your pocket". Have they met my dog, Jackson, I wonder?

He's adorable! I love his jumper.

Barkscdale would certainly be quieter than the real thing...!

oh he's lovely! Especially the mixed colours - I'm really struggling trying to get black AND tan on my knitted dachsys, settled for plain at the moment.

I agree, adorable, do the legs move too?

He's great. I used to have an Airedale and couldn't agree more about the toy one being better behaved.

I wonder if I can knit a Sophie.
