Puppy Love

Don't hate me for saying that I have never been a pet person.  I am sorry, I just haven't.  Not sure if it is my strong sense of smell or what.  We had a cat that died in March--I gave her to my hubby one year as a gift of love because he is a cat guy.  And then last week my daughter happened upon some free puppies, pleaded for one and I said, "Ya, sure, what the heck, let's get a puppy!"   I have completely fallen in love with this sweet little mutt (puggle and miniature pinscher) we named Tika.
In honor of her, thought I'd share a few dog projects from the archives:
A dog bed, made from a doll bed.  I took off the one side and cut it down to lower it,
and another doll bed made into a pet dish holder.
And they call it puppy love...

  4. There is only one thing better than a puppy and that is the dog it grows into being. You love them more each and every day.

  6. Oh that face, I would have had to give in too... what a little cutie. They do have a way of crawling right into your heart and leaving a big footprint don't they.

    Love the little bed and feeding station... something tells me this is going to be a very spoiled puppy.

    Hugs, Deb

  7. I was never a pet person until we got our dog and then I transformed into this "goo goo ga ga" crazy dog lady who can't remember life without her. Tika is adorable. Those eyes just melt your heart. Who could resist?!

  13. Awwww, so cute! We just had to rehome our puppy because she didn't get along with our older dog (big fights involving blood and vet bills) but we miss her :(

  15. hahaha Becky, you are a goner now that you've gone to the "other side". YEP, that puppy has your number. The bed and pet food dish holder, I'm sure are just the beginning of some really cool projects we have to look forward to. :) Yeah for you letting your daughter experience this. Pam @ Sallygoodin
