Christmas is going to be real ruff for those of us who don't have this Doggone Cute DIY Christmas Stocking for our precious pooches.

This doggo Christmas stocking is a cutie! I know just the perfect recipient too. My son and his new wife adopted a shelter mutt...cutest little part dachshund you ever did see! They've named her Timber and she visits our house weekly with her "mom" and "dad". She has a sensitive tummy and so she gets homemade doggie biscuits. We could fill this for her with chew toys and such. Oh it'll be such fun! Thanks for the idea!!!

This Doggone Cute DIY Christmas stocking is absolutely adorable and I plan on making it for my daughter's new canine addition to her family. I think I will use a light brown color for the main body of the stocking, instead of green. And maybe white for the paws, as well. They seem pretty easy to whip up, and if it's like that, I may try and make several for the church Christmas bazaar! Thanks for the pattern and great idea!

Whose doggie does not need a stocking like this one? I think this is just the most adorable thing I have seen in a long time. I love that you can make a stocking for your friend and his or her pet too. You can even make homemade dog treats if you wanted to go inside.
