Special Request of the Week

Each week this space is reserved for one customer's request that has gone from the inbox to the drawing board. This special request of the week comes from Karla, who suggested sketches of the Cardigan Welsh Corgi. The Cardigan is a very old breed, having first arrived in Cardiganshire with the Celts in 1200 BC. They were very valuable to farmers because of all the open grazing, as they could nip at the cattle's heels and drive them as far afield as desired. Add these sweet dogs to tote bags, towels, pillow covers, shirts, and more! And thank you, Karla, for your excellent request.
