  1. Funny how things work out

    Maybe I'll start calling him Prog. He doesn't respond to Skipper anyway.
  2. Funny how things work out

    Cue theme from Twilight Zone. Just this morning I wrote to a friend that I wondered just who had rescued whom. Later on a shopping for doggie things trip, I found a t-shirt with that saying on it, complete with pawprints. Yesterday he helped me rearrange The Lair so I can get to my work table. Somewhere in my stash, there is a tiny pipecleaner dog, same color as Skipper, that one of you wonderful Greenleafers sent me when I was building a dollhouse for the Humane Society fundraiser. [Twilight Zone theme encore] First mini methinks will be a teensy doghouse, with an even teensier fire hydrant, Skipper being a he and all. I think we're going to be a good team.

    The shelter staff person said they would notify his former owner and that the former owner had promised a letter to the new owner, me. Don't know if doggie visits are allowed, or if the former owner's condition would find a visit upsetting ... just have to wait and see.

    I call him my upside down vampire. Not enough room in a poodle mouth for a set of terrier teeth. My darling Scottie found me; and somehow so did this little guy. His personality has already done a 180 in the few days he's owned me. He just doesn't seem to understand English. Sit, down, din-din, out, walkies, treat! -- all I get is a stare. Thanks for all the kind words and wishes. I'm going to send Skipper into the basement first ... those fangs'll scare away any monsters, y'think?

    He's supposed to be a Westie/Miniature Poodle mix. Nice that he matches the rug, yes?
  6. Funny how things work out

    His name is supposed to be Skipper, but he has exceptionally selective hearing. I think "Hey, You" would work as well. There's a lot of belly to rub; fortunately he likes to walk and I'm expecting that spare tire to diminish in no time. He's part terrier; part poodle. Got that Terrier Butt Strut that I dearly love. From both of us, good to be home.
  7. Funny how things work out

    For the past 7 years, ever since my beloved Scottie died, I said to all and sundry that I'd never have another dog. She was special, she was the last, I never wanted to watch another dog die, I never wanted to feel that heartbreak again. Last Thursday, I clicked on the humane society web page. Why? Who knows. A 10 year old mixed breed with fangs, surrendered when his owner went into a nursing home. I remembered the hurt when I had to put my little darling into foster care when I was sick. Of course I adopted him the next day. Seems it doesn't have to be Christmas for a Grynche's heart to grow. He's at my feet, or by my side, wherever I am. I'm hoping he'll be my Muse now, as I've so missed everyone here and doing minis, but didn't have the heart to go downstairs alone and work on them. Life's what happens while you're busy making other plans.
  8. Our Sadie crossed the Rainbow Bridge this morning

    My heart breaks. There are so many Greenleaf furbabies at the Bridge, so many tears. But Sadie won't be alone. I'm certain my Fiona is hugging her right now.
  9. Rainbow Bridge receives another

    Truly a handsome cat. How could we bear the loss of our furkids without the comfort of The Bridge? hugs.
  10. Wishing everyone a Merry Christmas!

    Grinchy greetings and best wishes.
  11. A danger to himself and others

    We're all gonna be elderly drivers some day. Just sayin'.
  12. Steps

    Really like the stonework. And the colors on the house, too.

    My bedroom window is the upper right. The upper left window was in the "back bedroom" no one wanted because the ceiling sloped almost to the floor and there were lots of bumped heads.
