Life with a puppy ...

We've had Haggis for 2 weeks now and life is full of excitement! He weighs 1.8kg now (1.2kg when we brought hime home), he loves to nibble fingers and toes, socks will do but aren't as good as bare skin :lol: We've all taken to wearing slippers or crocs whilst he's awake. Haggis has gotten into all of our hearts but it's so lovely to see him snuggling with my Dad who never ever wanted a doggy. He loves to explore in the back garden and can't wait to be out in public when he's had all of his injections (won't be long now) and he's into mischief in a big way - chewing the switches and knobs on the music system, pulling out and chewing the books from the bookcase and 'cleaning' the windows in the living room with his little pink tongue. Please forgive all the doggy photographs if you've come looking for cards (I have those too today) but all our family and Mary from Christisons are asking for updates and this is an easy way for everyone to see him :)

He loved playing in the snow last week, especially the day after when it was all frozen and he could walk along on the top of it. These pictures were Haggis and I before I went to school (and yes, crocs aren't the best shoes to be wearing whilst in the snow!)










We had to pop him in a bowl to weigh him!


It's all good!

Crafting wise I have been making the most of being on holiday from school this week (half term) and have been really busy. Kate Hadfield has really outdone herself this week - watch out for a fantastic collab kit for release on Friday at The LilyPad!
Kay has a new release too - Wild About You - and I love it. Who could resist that sweet lion?






It was my turn to take over Eva Kipler's blog through the week and I used some of her papers to make paper beads. I used to make these when I was a little girl but haven't made them for a long time


And then I spent some time playing with Eva's latest kit (a collaboration with Susan from Scrapkitchen Designs) Spring It On



I've made these little gift pockets before but a challenge at the Pink Petticoat blog inspired me to make them again, I used Lady Bugga by Lauren Grier and Jennifer Barrette from Sweet Shoppe Designs and loved how they turned out. I'm going out for my Aunties birthday lunch later today so I popped a few chocolates in each one and I have a nice little party favour for the girlies
Well, I'd better go and find out what trouble Haggis is getting into now!

Hi Andrea. I keep popping in to see the pics of Haggis. He's adorable. We've been pestered over the last few weeks by our two grown up children to buy a pup, they can't understand that for the first few weeks at least some one should bee with a new pup most of the day. I said that we may get one nearer the 6 weeks hols. This will give me time to work out a contract of doggy care. So at the moment I'm showing them your blog. Please keep posting Haggis's progress. Sorry forgot to mention I love your cards. Debbie M.
