Following on from my last post – today I took the dogs to the vet’s for their booster shots, and then realised that tomorrow it will be exactly a year since I brought Miss Daisy home. A year since the house was peaceful and quiet … a year since sewing/knitting/sandwiches or anything at all really could safely be left unattended. Although she has improved a lot, de-stuffing my Coastguard’s Cottages draught excluder remains a favourite occupation. The cottage at the end has been re-stitched several times and is definitely suffering from subsidence!
I would like to be able to type that she has grown and changed from a silly little puppy into a mature sensible young dog. However I cannot. I am afraid that I must type that she has grown and changed from a silly little puppy into an even sillier and totally not mature young dog. But she is so sweet-natured and loving it’s hard to remain cross with her for very long, whatever her latest misdeed might be. So here is Daisy’s year in pictures ….
With her much loved big brother never too far from her side. Happy Anniversary Daisy – here’s to the next 12 months!
Sometimes a picture really is worth a thousand words – and this one, I think, says it all …..
Daisy had a wonderful Christmas and is eagerly anticipating next year when she can do it all over again!
Yesterday was a very special day – it was Miss Daisy’s first birthday, and Rosie, her number one fan, decided that we should mark the occasion with a canine birthday pawty! They spent the morning baking …
….a whole pile of crunchy peanut butter treats, as well as a doggy birthday cake …
Before long it was time for the birthday girl to put on her pawty hat ….
As her special guest was about to arrive – the extremely handsome Lionel ..
Whilst the youngsters played and the humans chatted (Daisy was sure Lionel was laughing at her hat!), Ben just wanted to sample the cake …
Not long to wait Ben! Light the candle and join in the singing .. Happy Birthday Miss Daisy, Happy Birthday to you.
But all too soon the pawty came to an end and it was time for Lionel to go home. Everyone, especially Daisy, had a wonderful time.
Happy first birthday, Daisy. We hope you had a pawfect day!!
On my Facebook page today I was asked how I managed to get so much stitching done? Was it down to excellent planning? I’m afraid not Gabby!! I think it’s because sewing is such a passion of mine. I’m one of those people who simply can’t sit down and relax for even a moment without picking up my latest project, and it’s amazing how much I do manage to achieve this way.
Of course Daisy would tell you it’s because I have such a hard heart – (I am very good at resisting her canine charms when I feel she’s had enough petting/playtime). She thinks my stitching is VERY boring!!
And I suppose from her point of view it probably is!!
