As a Husky parent, she has collected a lot of dog hair off and on, and wondered how she could use it. It was a few months after her first Husky had passed away when she decided to make his replica using his hair and wool by needle felting method. It was from her deep sadness of losing her dog. Years passed, and she has made a lot of Mini-Pups for her customers. Each time she put a lot of love and passion for the animals in the Mini-Pups.
