I’ve spent a lot of the morning exploring other blogs and I noticed that there are exchanges and SALs and give-aways going on all over the place.  I also noticed that they were started at the beginning of the year and I’m too late for mostL   Not to worry I know what I will be doing in JanuaryJ  I’ve also noticed that a lot stitchers are cat people and include them in their blogs, I haven’t had a cat in years but I do have a very nervous dog. “Bud” is a 9 year old rat terrier with no social skills and no interest in getting any.  We took “Bud” to school several years back; his progress went from sitting under my chair in class on the first day to sitting on my feet on the last day of an 8 week course.  We’ve tried walking him through our neighborhood to get him use to seeing other dogs and people, he wasn’t having it.  People are okay if you greet him correctly (that is let him come to you) but he doesn’t like dogs of any kind or size.  We have this love/hate relationship, he loves for me to fill his food and water bowls and hates for me to go near his mom (my daughter) and his grandpa (Hubby) whenever I do he growls, but he also growls when those two get near each other. Bud’s motto is “No touching unless you’re touching me”. So without further ado here’s “Bud”

He’s a little camera shy at first but finally agreed to a good pose.

 Well I’m off to do some housework or I won’t be able to stitch and have some progress to show, can’t have that. 

I hope you enjoy my posts, thanks for stopping by.

Hi Minnie. :) I couldn't reply to your comment directly as there wasn't an email attached to your blogger account. :)

It would be awesome to have your company for the next IHSW. To get the button, copy the code under the button from my blog, then set up a new HTML gadget and paste it in. Ta-dah!! :D

I tried to put the code here for you, but it won't allow me to paste HTML coding in here. :(
