Sadly i have lost my Rottie Rosie. Had her for 11 and a half years, and although i knew id have to make that one way trip to the vets, it wasnt any easier when it came down to it....miss her lots, glad i didnt come home to an empty house but my other two girls knew something was wrong, at least theystill  have each other for company....

Well...its been a while, kind of forgot to blog, so here i am....a year ago today we got Cassie from the dog and cat home, i knew she would be worth it and she is, she has helped my older 2 girls perk up and she is a joy to have around, goes everywhere at 100 miles an hour, drops heavy bone on your feet, sleeps atop of the sofa while looking out of the window for us to return,in a way, im glad her owners gave her up, if they hadnt we would have missed out on the fun she happy 1st anniversay in your forever home...and so im not leaving out my other two here they are grey haired oldie smiley oldie

got these solar butterfly lights, hung them over the shed, they looked gret, then one night no light, only had them a week so i took them down and went into the garage to put them back in their box to go back to the shop with them.....they lit up in the garage, weird, so i lay them on the outside table and that night they lit up, so ive got them back on the shed and last night they lit up....dont know what was going on with them, maybe they were just on strike..
look who came for the fat balls today ...Mr Jackdaw

walking over the moor today i saw this snail with a whirl stripe on the shell, really pretty. Just saw the one deer, the grass is so high now is hard to spot them, had Cassie with me , here she is

 Here is Penny curled up cosy on the sofa
Do you think Rosie likes the new duvets?
 Tight squeeze with the new duvet, comfy though
Cassie will curl up at this end of the sofa

Can you believe this is the same dog? Penny was very overweight, too many treats from hubby, when we got young Cassie
i decided that some drastic measures were needed.Cassie is such a hungry girl so i wanted her to feel full but not of calories, answer was carrots, cabbage, cauliflower and broccoli...i wasnt sure Penny and Rosie would eat the veg but amazingly they loved them ,even eating the veg before the dog food, 10 mths on and Penny has lost 5kg  and Rosie has lost 7kg and the vet was impressed, im sure now its been worth it as Penny can now have a lovely walk round the mor with me, when she was heavy , she could barely make it down the road....wish i could lose 5kgs lol

Rosie...who will be 12 in Sept , is enjoying the sun last week, this is her fav spot till she getts way too hot and has to move into the shade.With us cutting down the tall trees last year means the garden gets more sun, dont know if thats good or bad.Lots of tadpoles are in the pond, lost them all last year, so im pleased this batch have survived...looking forward to seeing teeny froglets soon

I have been making rag bags lately and although they are time consuming, they are fun to make. It took much longer to prepare the fabric than i thought, i took and hour and a half to tear and join the strips to make just one of the bags above....quite a time taken up before you can even begin to crochet, and it hard on the hands too, the fabric is stiff and hard to crochet...but the outcome is lovely....i have two for myself, here they are
I am also writing a facebook page around my dogs, they are so funny at times and having adopted the young Cassie, the older two have perked up a lot, heres the linky to the page
The Three Amigos

off to work now, i dont like getting up at 5am but the lighter mornings are coming and its not so bad then
