Happy International Dog Day
Good morning, good morning, tra la la la la, happy Monday everyone!
It’s International Dog Day and all dog themed PDF patterns are on sale in our Etsy store for the next 24 hours only.
We’ve had several dogs over the years. I don’t have any photos to share because it was pre affordable digital cameras (OMG I’m sooo old). Sweet little Rosie dog was a black & white patchy bitzer named after my daughter’s kindergarten teacher LoL. Then we had Daisy the totally insane golden labrador who had a penchant for eating sunglasses and barbie dolls, then came Sammy who quite literally tried to eat our timber house. Years later we’re still finding teeth marks – he actually chewed through our stairs at one point.
I love dogs but we don’t have the time, or a fenced yard, to own one right now. I’m also dog poo phobic – yeah doggy do do makes me squeamish like you wouldn’t believe LoL.
So instead we have two gorgeous ginger kitties who are fat, mostly lazy, and adorable. I was telling everyone on Facebook about Rem on the weekend – he likes to get up on my desk (which is in my bedroom) and rake his claws across the keyboard at 3am in the morning to get my attention. It works. Every. Single. Time. He makes such a racket.
If I ignore him he turns my hubby’s computer on, which is feet from my face, and I wake up to a screen saver staring at me. The crew think it’s funny to take turns putting leering faces on it. Currently it’s Nic Cage and I jump every time LoL.
One of these days, when we move house and have a fenced yard, and we’re not so busy I think we’ll get another dog. What breed to choose? A rescue dog? Who can I pay to scoop the poop!?!?
In the meantime I’ll make myself a pack of doggie soft toys and console myself that they mightn’t be as warm as a real dog, as loving as a real dog, but at least there’s no poop and they won’t try and eat the house! Have a fun day lovelies, toni xx
Ps. I just have to share this weird bit of news this morning. I’ve just had the Harry & the Hound Dogs quilt pattern banned on Facebook because it’s sexually implicit. OMG save us from artificial intelligence! I win the internet this week and yes I’m laughing my head off!
