I've had a lot less time for crafting of late. We've been busy adding to our family.
Daisy is a 10 month old alleged boxer/st. bernard mix (we're thinking her lineage is a bit off). Spicy and I were at the pet food store about a month and a half ago to pick up cat litter. Daisy was at the store with a local rescue organization. She was abused as a puppy and has a lot of fear issues, and she's especially frightened of men.
We left the store that day empty handed (well, with 2 40lb boxes of cat litter but you know what i mean), but we couldn't stop thinking about Daisy. We took our time, did a lot of research, and we agreed that we could give Daisy a good home. The process of adopting her has been pretty intense but considering that she is a "special needs" dog I don't blame the organization for thoroughly vetting us.
We're still in our trial period but things are going pretty well and we hope to give her a permanent home soon. Daisy is getting used to her surroundings now. She loves the cats. They don't quite love her back yet but they're getting along ok at this point. Daisy is slowly learning that Spicy is the guy you go to for treats. Sorry for the image quality--she is scared of my camera but she's ok with the ipad.
