- About Me
My name is Sue Putt. I am Mom to four grown children, Grandma to thirteen great kids and Great Grandma to four beautiful babies.
Fiber has always been an important creative outlet for me. I started sewing when I was nine years old. Through the years I sewed clothing for myself, my dolls, my kids and my grandkids. I've made countless quilts for my home and for others. I also knit, crochet and weave on my two Schacht floor looms.
In 2003 I embarked on an incredible journey with the addition of our first Newfoundland dog, Benson. As Benson grew, I quickly learned about drool! Just as I designed clothing for my dolls and kids, I designed drool bibs for Benson.
Soon I was making drool bibs for many of Benson's friends. With encouragement from others, I started selling my dog drool bibs on eBay. Designs By 2Paws was born and I conducted this small business part-time while working outside the home full-time.
I was a Business Systems Analyst for mid sized bank for 10 years and then worked for a large pharmaceutical company when the bank was merged into a larger bank. Life was good until the there was another merger. My department was eliminated and I continued on as a consultant with the new company. After a few years and more job changes, I decided I had enough with corporate America and worked at Designs By 2Paws full time.
The growth of Designs By 2Paws is a dream come true. I wear all the hats for this business and take pride in offering a quality product and excellent customer service. I thank you for your support through the years and try to give back to the Newfoundland communiity by supporting Newfoundland Rescue, my local regional club and the National Newfoundland Club of America.
My husband and I have been owned by six truly amazing Newfoundlands. Our pack currently consists of three boys and one girl who we are fostering. All our newfoundlands live with us in our home.
My newfs and I participate in conformation and many of the various dog working and sporting events. Three of my newfs are therapy dogs which keep us very busy in our local community.
