She came from a West Virginia rescue – our local SPCA helping to empty a shelter due to flooding. No one seems to know much about her background – there was some talk of an owner surrender due to hospice. What I can tell is that someone showed this little girl love. And she found a way to hold on and trust in people until another someone showed up to offer her a forever home.
She’s been with us for 24 hours. During that time she has shown sweetness and smiles and a formidable appetite! As I type, she is lying under my feet so quietly that I did not know she had joined me. She met Dr. Wonderful today and was very receptive to his charms, allowing him to probe and shine lights and all of that scary stuff without a complaint. Unfortunately, she may have a UTI, and she needs to return tomorrow.
She has a beard. The vet assistant says that she sees only Brussell Griffon, but I’m seeing a lot of pug in that funny face and stance. She and Tula are equally matched in stature and weight. When they get going, there are some real shenanigans, racing, running, hopping and growling. They slept last night, next to one another, both snoring mightily.
She is VERY animated! Unfortunately, she will have to undergo surgery on Tuesday. Apparently she has an infected uterine stump and it has to be managed. I feel like a traitor taking her back for another procedure since she was spayed in early August. Hopefully it will be uneventful and she’ll be home and mending quickly. She likes her sister very much and is able to share and endure some ear licking. Pugs. Must. Lick. It’s a rule.
I still have computer/photo issues. These images are coming from my iPhone, thus the blurriness.
This quilt was started last year (I think) and needs to be completed. I fell hard for the Art Gallery SWEET AS HONEY line when it came out and it does not disappoint, even after being tucked away all of these months.The little patch of aqua makes me happy. There is a lot of piecework involved in the making of this quilt, but doesn’t time pass quickly when you are enjoying yourself? Since the piecing is both methodical and intuitive, it gives me time to clear the cobwebs out of my brain and even consult my muse for future makings …
