Rita & Honey Bun

Pat – I think of you with my little “Chubby Chihuahua”. She lost almost 50% of her weight and she is now pretty athletic!! I now call her my “Centerfold Chihuahua”. She has ingratiated herself into our household and I can’t imagine a better dog!! She has been delightful.

Your book was fantastic – it was serendipity to see your book at the fair just a couple weeks after I inherited Honey Bun – my first dog as an adult!!

Thank you, Rita

I looked out my window today and saw the boy across the street carrying a little dog into his house.  I wonder what the cat next door will think about that?

Christmas Shopping

 

There are only six shopping days left until Christmas, and I still haven’t gotten gifts for my good friends, Lily, Cinco, Frasier, Fred and Bentley.  Christmas shopping should be easier this year, because I created a gift list.

Gift List:

– Lily – Red and Green Plaid Christmas Collar

– Cinco – Gift Card to the Spotty’s Doggie Diner

– Frasier – Gift Card to New Leash on Life Day Spa

– Fred – Extra Fuzzy Reindeer Antlers

– Bentley – Red Christmas sweater with lots of jingle bells

I planned to go shopping early Saturday morning, but mom wanted me to go with her to pick out a Christmas tree. 

Maybe Sunday would be a better day.  No, I can’t go on Sunday.  I like to play with my friends at the dog park on Sundays.  Since we don’t have class on Monday, I’ll go shopping Monday morning.   Yes, Monday it is.  

Which store should I go to first?   Most of the gifts can be bought at Mutts”N”Stuff, so I’ll go there first.   But “Spotty’s Doggie Diner” is on the way.  I wonder if they gift wrap at Mutts”N”Stuff?   If they don’t, I’ll have to buy wrapping paper.   Maybe I should go to “Bones for Less” first for the wrapping paper.  Christmas shopping is SO stressful.

Fondly focused,

Stasha

 

Halloween

Halloween is only a few days away.  It’s one of my favorite holidays, because you can dress up and be anything you want to be on that day.

 Every year our doggie daycare has a Halloween Party, and we can come dressed up in our favorite costumes.  Last year I came dressed as a pirate.  I had a patch over one eye and wore a lot of long, gold necklaces.  I also wore a silly pirate’s hat that got in the way when I played “Bobbing for Rubber Balls.”

This year I want to be a fairy princess, and wear the dress my grandma gave me last year.  Gosh, I hope it still fits.  I love that dress!  It’s made of pink chiffon and has short puffy sleeves. When I wear it, it makes me feel beautiful.  It makes me want to dance in circles on my two hind legs and pretend I’m dancing at the Princess Ball.

 Yippee!  I just  tried on the dress, and it fits.   When I caught a glimpse of myself in the mirror, I wondered if the long, dangling earrings and tiara might be a little too much.  It might be hard to bob for rubber balls with those crazy earrings.  I guess I could wrap my ears around the tiara, but that may look kind of silly.  Oh well, it’s Halloween. 

For the love of  jewelry,
Lily
