Today was a great day! November 3 2012

I have been waiting for a place my sewing machine could call home other than in the sewing table its stored in for 3 years.

I’ve had to set up the machine every time I want to sew. And sew on the dining table. Then store machine back in sewing table.

This morning started with breakfast my hubby went and picked up. Then he started working in the room I wanted to use for sewing.

Its going to be wonderful to not have to put it away each time. It will save time when I want to sew.

With winter coming my first project is for the puppy. Her pen is in a drafty part of the house.

This is a big project 7 yards of fabric to enclose her pen. Took me almost 5 hours to complete it. But its perfect and she ran right in and snuggled into her bed for a nap.

Next up more stuff for the pup. LoL

Heart Racing Morning October 29, 2012

Very scary waking moments this morning.

I woke up to this sight

image

My pups crate open. At first I thought oh..ok the kids are up?? Then I thought YEA RIGHT! And I screamed wheres the dog?!

No answer or dog running to me. I scream again where is the dog?? Still no answer I go into spare bathroom cat litter box still intact, cat food still in bowl.

Kids trash on floor like usual. I then say hey guys get up!! Where is the puppy?!!!! I found the cat sound asleep.

By now im very scared. Looking in kids bedrooms, up and down hall way, bathrooms, go back to crate to see pup sitting up in crate with a kinda guilty look on her face.

I picked her up sniffed her mouth dont smell cat food. I hope she didnt get into it or we will be at the vet later. I guess she never left her crate.. But honestly I dont believe that for a moment! LOL

Waffles is ONE!!

Our yorkie-poo Puppy is now One year old. she is full-grown we are told. But at just 9 pounds she will always be a puppy to us. People say you save an animal from the shelter. I beg to differ. She saved us. She has brought so much happiness to our lives. Shes brought my Child with aspergers out of his shell.

She goes everywhere with us. School drop offs in the morning, camping, grandparents visits. Shes a great addition to our family. Here are some pictures of her first year.

This is the day we brought her home. The first time we met her.

Buying her a harness and leash. My son with Aspergers was holding her. Since the day we brought her home he has not wanted to set her down. This is one pampered pup.

Waffles loves car rides!

Her first time camping. She had a blast. We knew at that moment we fell in love with the perfect pup for us.

Growing up! Shes looking like an adult Yorkie-poo now. She is 7 months old. She loves to nap on my bed.

Bath time! She loves the bath.

Her favorite ball. Loves wiffle balls!

The big day has arrived!! Waffles is ONE YEAR OLD!! 10/1

Here is a picture with her in her Halloween costume.

Been a long few days

Thursday afternoon I went to Petco and bought puppy new treats. I confirmed with the company and their box nothing that she is allergic to was in them. Or so I thought.

They were limited ingredient treats. But evidently she has a problem with them.

The treats were the size of a chocolate chip. I gave her two. She chowed them down. And within minutes was panting, sneezing, rubbing at eyes, scratching, circling, and squeaking.

At bed time she threw up on my bed before I tucked her into her crate for the night. So then we had no top sheet, blanket, and a very scared sick pup.

We sat in bathroom holding her until she stopped shaking and whimpering. She hates throwing up. Finally got her calmed down and off to bed by 1am.

Yesterday (Friday) she threw up once and had potty issues. She was very clingy. And panted alot as she does when tummy hurts. We went to my Moms and the pup just wanted me to hold her. I’d set her down and she’d stand on hind legs and whimper till I picked her back up. My Mom just laughed and said she’s like a child.

Well today (Saturday) she is quite a bit better. Just clingy and fowl gas. LoL It usually takes 4-5 days to get her back to normal after she has a reaction to food products.

Lesson I learned? Just leave well enough alone!

She has a Birthday coming up. I was trying to get her a special treat since I cant find a treat recipe that is safe for her. She will just have her usual treat on her birthday and be perfectly happy and feel great! And I’m going to go buy a new toy from the kids.

What a day!

What a day, the boys and I decided to take the pup to a park near by. One without bushes so we could see what other animals were there. Well we were there for 5 minutes when I hear the sound of a leash dragging on the concrete.

I look up, my kids and pup are about 30 feet from me. And a large dog is barking and growling running right at my family. My boys are oblivious to the problem. I yell PICK UP THE PUPPY!!!! My son snaps into action, grabs pup. Big dog tries to snap at pup as son lifts her up. Other son gets in front on my other child and pup. The other dogs owner looks at us like we have a problem?! Then he walks off with his large dog dragging its leash.

Needless to say I made a call and the man got a ticket for an unleashed dog.

We then left the park, puppy was scared, and shaking, and I no longer felt she was safe there. Didn’t want to wait for next fool to have a unleashed dog.  So instead we took her to harbor and walked her around there. The boys looked at boats, pup was safe all was good. Was a good day in the end!

Waffles the wonder pup

image

She is the most perfect pup ever. Loves to act like a big dog. Rough house, bark and growl like the rest, walk on leash. Yet also puts up with being carried. Loves to go in her sling on hikes. At almost 8 pds she is to small to walk the trails. Something could lunge out of bushes and snatch her. So she is always in sling when its not a safe environment. She is a 8 month old yorkiepoo. We think she may be at her adult size. She’s the perfect dog for us. Loves to hike, camp, go for bike rides, snuggle, play. She’s basically hypoallergenic. No dog is actually. But she doesn’t have fur. She has hair. She is bathed once a week. And my severely allergic child is fine with her. As are the rest of us in house with mild allergies. She’s the best!
