Today is #WorldAnimalDay and we want you to celebrate with us!

The welfare of animals is important to everyone at Embroider Buddy® and we know it’s important to you, too! Choosing to adopt a new family pet, stopping to pat a dog on the street, even adding another cuddly Embroider Buddy® animal to your collection—these are all ways you show your love for the amazing creatures that share the world with us!

Family pets are frequently brought up here at Embroider Buddy®. We love to share photos and stories of our furry (and sometimes scaly) friends. And while embroiderers often request popular Buddies for people looking to memorialize their furry friends as plush companions, we hold our wild animal pals dear to our hearts as well. Here are a few fan favourites!

Zachary Zebra Buddy

With their distinctive black and white stripes, and brush-like manes, zebras are one of the most unique animals on the African grasslands. Their sweet faces make zebras an easy choice if you’re looking for a snuggly friend. Zachary Zebra’s cute pointy ears, and super soft mane and tail make him a guy you can’t ignore. And his flat white pile belly makes him super easy to embroider!

Cecil Sea Lion Buddy

Speaking of sweet faces, they don’t get much sweeter than Cecil the Sea Lion Buddy. One of our softest buddies, his big baby eyes, sweet smile and whiskers makes him one irresistible pup. In fact, some believe those whiskers are what gave wild sea lions their name! Our Cecil comes with self-contained stuffing pods for the head and belly, which are removable through a hidden zipper, making hooping and embroidery easy on any embroidery machine.

Parker Pug Buddy

Although pugs are an ancient breed, they certainly aren’t old news. A popular breed, you’ll often see their sweet faces plastered on socks, shirts and social media. Pug owners love to receive a personalized Parker Buddy to celebrate their beloved pooch in another big way!

Mini Elephant Blankey Buddy

Elephants are the largest of all the land mammals, and can eat more than 50 tonnes of food every year! These fascinating creatures thrive in large, tight-knit family groups, and while hardly your first choice for a house-pet, you canhave one join your family’s herd! Mini Elephant Blankey Buddy comes in blue or pink, and has a 16″ square space ready for all your creative work.

Here at Embroider Buddy®, we believe animals everywhere should be treated with dignity and respect. And we’d like to know which animal, wild or tame, is your favourite? Are we missing any that we should add to our Embroider Buddy® family? Let us know!
