....that's how the dachshund is described in the knitting book Best In Show.
And he was.
Have you seen the book? It's not new but I found it at a bargain price so snapped it up.
He is supposed to have a knitted collar but I couldn't resist giving him a neckerchief made from a scrap of liberty fabric.
You may notice that the book he is standing on isn't knit your own dog but knit your own cat. That was a bargain price too and I don't think my own cat is impressed that I decided to knit a dog before a cat. Perhaps I should knit a cat next it will sure be less trouble than the real life version and a whole lot quieter.
I'm nominating this little chap as my September Monthly Make.
