Good Morning campers!



Good Morning all ….it seems at the moment one of the things I seem to be doing most is walking my dogs…..your own fault for having so many Bern!…. Well yes and no we had two Rhodesian Ridgebacks Durban and Purdy. Who we intended to breed .  Just one litter I don’t run a puppy farm nor will I ever do so …….but the two dogs we had were and still are outstanding dogs.  Wherever we went we were complimented on them so we decided after thinking long and hard to have ONE litter.  The months went on and finally the Joyous news Purdy had caught and was having a litter  due October

October 1st dawned Purdy and been restless and nesting most of the night and at 8.10 the first pup was born by six that evening we had ten healthy fat puppies tired and hungry we cleaned her and fed her as she was feeding she passed what we thought was wind ….we were wrong there was pup number eleven because she was the youngest and smallest we called her Squirt….this little dog became Rory’s my youngest boys best friend …..we sold eight of our litter all without exception went to good homes,  And we thought we had homes for two more but alas it was not to be so we ended up keeping two more pups, Jilla and Pierrot ….Now I know it may not be everybodys cup of tea but a house with five dogs is never boring….with the dog walking in mind how could I not do a card with Rory and his best mate walking over our  local park using the brand new  February Monthly Special – Old Barn.  I cut the shape from my cricut and then bigger sizes to mat and layer added it to a square card behind and trimmed off the square edges  All the inks used were distress inks I hope you like the card as much as I enjoyed making it ….this really is a peak into the everyday doings of a mad dog woman who loves to craft.
