It has been a busy, topsy turvy few days and truly can’t imagine things settling down for a while. This past weekend was bittersweet. We were preparing for our 2 new pups to join our household when we got a call Friday morning that both of them were sick. Within 24 hours we lost them both to parvo. Having just lost our dear friend Scully, we both took it very hard. So, so sad. Although Tim swore we would not be bringing any new animals into a heart for a long time, by that afternoon, 2 new rescue puppies joined our family. They too are border collie mixes, and look quite a bit like Scully. We named the boys Sheldon and Leonard, and if you happen to be fans of The Big Bang Theory like we are, you’ll understand our choice of names 🙂 All is well except our 2 Yorkies are questioning our decision. They were use to living with a Husky and a Border Collie, but they were adults when the Yorkies meet them. The pure unadulterated energy of the 2 pups is a bit overwhelming, and if looks could kill, George would have done me in today! Wish us luck 🙂
On a crafty note… I have drawn up plans for toys to go along with the book It’s Mine, by Leo Lionni. The story is about how 3 quarrelsome siblings learn a lesson about cooperation from a very helpful toad. I am making the frogs and toads from wood, the lily pads from felt, and Michelle had a brilliant idea for the lily flower that I’ll be trying later in the week. I’ll be sharing all these patterns over the next week or so.
I’ll close with a few pics of the pups… just cuz I can 🙂 It is amazing how much they’ve grown in just 2 days. Weeds I tell you 🙂 So, here’s Leonard and Sheldon.
