DOGPHX is Closed.

Whee! It was fun while it lasted. Last Fall I stopped writing unsure if I was going to continue with this project. And then in December when Teddy went to live with a new family I knew there would be no more DOGPHX. It's just taken me a long time to post this.

I had a blast interviewing fellow dog lovers and meeting lots of people and their pups. Thank you to everyone who participated, advertised and supported my idea. Thanks. :)

I've begun blogging again - just can't stop - this time I've gone back to my love of sewing and crafting new projects. If you've landed here at DOGPHX through Pinterest to see my crafty DIY posts and want more sewing and handmade goodness, head over to She's Sew Slye. Cheers!
