Our New Baby is Here!

Well... our great dog search didn't take very long at all thanks to Petfinder.com. Drum roll please....... here she is. We have named her Rugby.The day after Thanksgiving my hubby and I went to Palmdale, Ca and adopted a Welsh Corgi/Australian Shepherd. She was at a no-kill shelter for the last six months after being abandoned in front of a Petsmart. Someone found her tied to a shopping cart.

She is very timid but she is starting to relax.

I am having the most difficult time trying to get a happy shot of her, she is camera shy.
She is short...very short. She has velvet soft fur.
She has muscular legs and a thick neck.

A very thick neck. ;0)
Oh, sorry sweetie pie. You're gorgeous. Look at me please?
I love your white fur and black spots.

Come on. please?
Ohhhhh... thank you!
Yes... I do have a treat sitting on my head. ;0)
Sweet Pea... you make me so happy.

This morning my little garden is all frosty winter wonderland white. The sky was dumpin' snow all night. I haven't moved my garden table into the garage yet and I am glad I didn't because it made the perfect snow gauge.
Sometimes laziness pays off! I wanna stick my hands in that perfectly smooth snow and mess it all up but I am going to give it another night and see how tall it gets. At this point it is 15 inches tall. 15" is pretty impressive considering
it all fell it one night. We have three more days and nights of snow predicted so this could get very interesting.

Here are a few random snowy shots I took this morning.

Dry Bleeding Hearts.

My neighbors woodpile. Cute little frosty hats. ;0)
Today I will be spending the day inside dyeing shirts, I have several custom orders to get done this weekend including my first attempt at a Greek Flag shirt... an exciting challenge.
Have a great day all. J

The Great Dog Search part.1

We have decided we are ready to get a new dog. Our beloved Gypsy Boots and Cosmo are still dearly missed but we need to fill the hole that they left. I have started to search Petfinder.com in order to find a sweet little pup that needs a rescue. The site is fabulous but I haven't found a dog I want that is within close driving distance. Can you have a dog shipped? That doesn't seem very nice. :0(

My son wants another Pit Bull but I get to pick our next dog and I want a Corgi, although I am very partial to Border Collies. I would love to find a Corgi/ Border Collie mix. Now that would be a great dog.

Do you have any advice on where to find Corgi pups that need a home?

The sweet furry face you see above is one of our family rescues...
Pepi La Pu... with my brother many, many years ago. Pepi had been abused and was very scared when we got him but he soon became a part of our family.
My son just brought over his dog "Brownie" who lives with my son's Father... that is how much I need a dog...I have been begging for canine visitors!
Isn't Brownie sweet?! He looks like a mini Husky and acts like a Fox not like a dog at all.
I am so excited about our next new friend... I just have to wait until we get back from our Thanksgiving trip to my Mom's. Then I am finding one!
