Another Finished Toy

I gave the Caramel Wabbit made from Blanket yarn, to Bentley for his 4th birthday.  He says it's a DAWG!
Next he informed me, the Wabbit/Dawg gets lonely when Bentley is in school.
I had a Wabbit 90% done from Vanilla Blanket, but was not in the mood to finish it. Transforming the Wabbit to a DAWG made the difference.
At 4:20 pm, da Wabbit was still 90% done.
At 9:45 pm, da DAWG is 100% done.
