Oh dearie me. Ben, what a clumsy dog you are. I thought Daisy was the one always getting into scrapes – but this time it’s you. This is NOT a good way to begin the New Year, is it? Below is a very sad and sorry Ben who has managed to break his bowl and for quite some time was under the impression that he wouldn’t get his tea until I had purchased a new one for him..
As he is a large dog who has suffered from neck problems in the past (caused by his baby sister swingng on his collar) I always feed him on a raised step as the vet suggested this would be more comfortable for him. And usually I keep an eye on him as he is a very greedy fellow who snuffles all around his bowl for those last elusive tasty morsels. But on this occasion I was distracted and while snuffling around he must have pushed his bowl off the step onto the hard slate floor where it cracked – completely in two – with a very loud bang! Frightened us all! And of course he will be getting tea every day while we wait for his new one to arrive, but from a most embarrassing plastic bowl, not nearly as nice as his old one, while Daisy still has her beautiful pink version. So to cheer him up I spent my New Year’s Day afternoon baking some peanut butter dog cookies – rather yummy!
And I do hope that Ben’s year will improve from now on! I’ll be back at the weekend looking back at 2014 – a MOST eventful year, and a peek at some new ideas for Bustle & Sew that will be coming over the next few months.
But now I’d like to wish everyone a very happy, peaceful and prosperous New Year – with LOTS of time for stitching!
HAPPY NEW YEAR EVERYONE!
