It is with a sad and heavy heart that this news is told. Our new dog Lucy died of cancer a couple of days ago.  We knew she had had cancer and was in remission when we got her.  What no one knew was it had come back with a vengeance. She died in my arms and is finally free to see and smell and run free in doggy heaven.

I am having a fun vacation in Colorado this week.  Getting lots of fresh air and coffee in my system, lol.  I do miss my puppy and kitty who are having to rough it with sitters this week.  Otherwise, they are being spoiled rotten!  I will be opening my Etsy store back up after my vacation!

I Have a Dog!!!

A few years ago our beloved dog Friendly passed away.  I have missed having a dog around terribly since then.  I have a secret, I follow dogs and cats on Instagram.  I've tried to stop longing for a puppy, really I have. But, one fateful day, Tilly Two Legs, a two legged cat, posted a picture about a blind dog with cancer and I fell in love right there.  The rescue was in North Carolina, I live in Virginia, so I figured what's a few hundred miles, right?  A flurry of emails ensued and somehow I was able to convince them they had my dog.

She is blind, sweet as can be and I am completely smitten!  No Kitty loves her too!  Now, having a blind dog isn't as bad as one might think.  She has a stroller for long walks.  I have to carry her up and down the stairs to go outside, I get my cardio in!  She never barks and loves to be petted and snuggled on all the time.  From what I was told she had spent her entire life chained to a concrete slab having puppies till she couldn't anymore so they threw her out on the street. When the rescue found her she weighed six pounds!  I haven't got much stitching, cleaning or anything else done since bringing her home.  She is worth it!!!!
