My niece Leah is celebrating her first Christmas with her doggie brothers. Jiro is the main dog and Yama is the back up auxiliary.

In the past Yama has been featured in a set of dolls as a sidekick. Now he’s his own man. I envy Leah for growing up around two such awesome bullies.

If I knit (and if bullies can stand to wear jumpers), these would be the ones they’ll receive for Christmas.
