They're Baaacccckkkkk

And I'm so happy! The Digital Design Den opened the store back up. I had to do some shopping last night! Sandy, Robyn and the rest of the gang have done a beautiful job on some new kits! I can hardly wait to do some new pages!

Sadie the Princess

The last couple of weeks Sadie has been sneaking upstairs after we leave for work, going into our room and sacking out on our king size bed. We live in a "gated" house. There is a gate in the doorway between the kitchen and living room, between the front and back of the house and on the stairway. The gate on the stairway doesn't fit quite right and Sadie can make it lean towards the landing. Then she proceeds to climb the gate. The problem is, once she gets up there she can't come back down. I wish you could see her when we get home and she is caught on the landing! I'm going to figure out a way to set up the video cam to record her doing this. I can just see her all curled up on my pillow, it's obvious that is where she curls up cause she makes sure the covers are arranged just right. Hopefully I can get the video!

Punkin and obedience

Punkin has always been a sassy little girl but since Sadie came to live with us she has gotten worse so with that said, she has begun intensive reprogramming obedience training. While we are at home she is always on a leash so she can be instantly corrected and/or praised. Right now she is laying on the love seat clear at the other end from me with a leash on. Every once in awhile she will cast me this dirty look and sigh. She just hates it when I give Sadie and Dusty attention. I'm not into reward training for this type of behavior. I'm using my vet's suggestion of the leash so that I can always have her under control. You would have thought I was trying to kill her when I put her leash on her but boy oh boy did she ever straighten up!

Nita had asked for an update on Dusty. I'm glad to say, he is doing very well! We made a trip to the vet last weekend for Sadie's annual checkup and we took Punkin and Dusty along. The vet was very pleased with the health of all of them. I just hope we don't have too many more of those visits. Just for little Sadie it was almost $200! They're worth every cent!

May Day

Please tell me where has the last 4 months gone?!!! I can hardly believe it's May 1st! I just read the best news in the world to me right now over at my friend, Robyn's blog. Digital Design Den is reopening! Yipeeeee! I was pretty bummed out when Sandy had to close down in March and I just haven't found another site I like as well as I did the Den. Whatever capacity Sandy and the other designers come back with they can count me in as a loyal follower!
