Can't remember where I first saw this cute little idea.  there is a pattern on Ravelry to make this.

I cannot work in sc w/ small hooks so I did hdc with a 5.mm hook.  the whole trick is to make a ball as your starting point. I added a CD as a base because he kept falling forward w/ the specs on.

In the Boxing Day CAL we were thinking this would make a good donation to seniors' centres.

Now THAT made my day! 

Maybe a short crocheted tube as a  'dog collar' would work?  Might need some stiffening with plastic canvas tho.  Or wide mouth plastic lid, like from a mayo jar.

I like the dog collar idea!

It's cute! My mum told me there were popular poodle bottle covers (almost half a century ago, because I don't remember them :) ) like that - just instead of a ball for a head you make a tube to cover the bottle. I like your poodle too :cheer

I've made dozens of those.  You need a TP tube and a Worcestershire sauce bottle.  we filled them with bath salts.  it was the beginning of my crocheted poodle fascination. :manyheart.

Super cute idea:cheer perfect way to use up scrap yarn as well

I agree.  if you just make the people ones you don't need the wool eating pompoms.

You piqued my interest by mentioning 'people ones' so I took a look--patterns below for those interested.  Hilarious how some amended the muppet ones to make different characters (you need to be a Ravelry member to see the projects).
