We were surprised at just how bad the wood was inside the old maple. It crumbles easily in your hands.

Hello, my name is Shorty and I am a 5 year old standard doxie. I now live with Katie at her house. See the nice lady in the picture with me? That is Bev and she called my new mom and dad Thursday and told them all about me. See Bev lives about an hour away and she has a friend that manages the pound there and that is where I was. Anyway, she came that day because it had been a long time since she was able too. She has been very ill.  She found out I was on the list to be put to sleep because no one had come to adopt me.  I don’t understand why because I have very good manners. I love to cuddle, and I sing too!  So Bev called and told them all about me and they said I could come live here!

Yes, life is good and I am so happy here too.  I got to go to Springfield yesterday and met some real nice people who gave me a lot of love and cookies too!  Then we went for frozen custard and Katie and I got some!  It was good and I ate mine very quickly!

Please remember if you get a pet to think about those of us in pounds and rescue groups. We make great companions and you just might save a life.

We are home and had a great time! It was just what we needed.  We visited our friends at their pharmacy.  Here is George the owner laughing at Katie.  She was eating a doggie cookie with her butt in the air.

Here is George and Sue’s daughter Jennifer. She and Katie are best buddies.

A little quality time with Sue. Feels good!  Katie always barks and stands on her hind legs looking out the drive up window everytime someone arrives.  She acts like she owns the place.  The owners doxies used to be there all the time until an inspector forced them to leave them at home.  What a rip off!

This is our very nice room! It was wonderful and so was everyone who worked there including the owners who are good Christian people. You are checked on a couple times a day to make sure you have all you need and all is well. They have plenty of time to talk to you and lots of smiles as well. It was more like staying with family. Katie even got a special bag filled with goodies and they have a nice grassy area to walk your dog with poo bags provided!

Now for some of the fabrics Jack has been buying me and some patterns to. I am down to 4 outfits and of those four two are in tough shape, one is not the proper size and the other is just getting very old and worn out.  These Jack bought for me at Ehlers here in town.

These are reproductions of 1800’s fabrics I bought at a place called FM Store in Springfield. I really enjoy all the fabrics. The dark blue with wheat is a reproduction of a fabric produced in 1860. The other was produced from 1830 to 1870.

The blue calico I got here at Ehlers and the other I got on clearance at Hobby Lobby.

These are the patterns I bought. I got them from Kathy at Common Sense Patterns Nice looking pull on style dresses easy enough for me to do. She prints them on really good, heavy paper as well and the instructions are easy to understand. I have been sewing for a number of years but I am self taught and never learned to do complicated patterns. I prefer simple styling anyway and easy to put together.

Lastly, here are Craig and Becky Chandler and their dogs. They not only own the place they work their too. Unlike many motel owners and they are such warm, loving and caring people. They are such a joy to talk with as well and the dogs are adorable. Katie and Buddy were flirting. Funny!

So that is most of our trip.  I hope you enjoyed everything.  God bless!

Tina came over Saturday to do laundry and help decorate the tree. It also seemed to be a good day to be silly as you will see. Here we have the invisible tree man.

Next we have reindeer Tina. I think our reindeer was a bit sleepy.

And this little reindeer seems most displeased with me. Wonder why? LOL!

And look at this surprise my sweet hubby hit me with. A big box full of yarn. He knew I was nearly out of yarn and I so appreciate it.

These are the pillowcases Jack made for Tina. He has another pair that have praying hands on them.

Tina is doing great in her place. It is a very nice apartment and the staff are wonderful. Tina is a very neat housekeeper as well. We are slowly helping her learn to cook simple items too. Jack showed her how to make fresh ice tea. So there is some laughter for you and I hope happy feelings. Until next time, God bless.
