You're responsible for another life and suddenly you have to follow schedules, feel as if you're abandoning her when you need to go out to appointments etc., take her out twice a day rain or shine (rain today), and give her a little lecture about the bed being a No-Doggie-Zone; she has her own bed at the foot of mine, even though she prefers the floor most of the time. She's understood that so far, but today while I was out she decided she'd try it out. When I came back the duvet was all scrunched up -- no big deal, except that it had drool on it, so off came the cover and into the laundry basket. Ah, but I love her anyway.


This project was fun, but not for the impatient. Roll out Sculpey air-dry clay, that is (THANK YOU DIANNE FOR CATCHING THE ERROR!), cut out shape with exacto knife, insert wire for legs, let dry. Wait for what seems forever -- a day or two. Seal, paint, seal again.


Wishing you a dry and calm day!
