Dog Gone

After five months my DS's dogs Betsy and Tess have gone back to live with him. They came here while DS and his family sold their house in AL and bought one in MI and moved. I was glad to be able to help them by keeping the dogs and Kipper and I will miss them. My DS showed me how to give a dog a haircut. Can you believe that Kipper grew all that fur in just a couple months? He is one COOL dog again. Tess got a cut too. They are both very well behaved and seemed to really enjoy the grooming. Well, except for the ears and feet.

The last pic is of my tomato plant that was so pokey about producing ripe tomatoes. Sure lots of great ones now. By the way, Kipper just loves tomatoes. He doesn't eat people food except I give him a bit of some fruits and veggies for a treat. Probably his favorite is a bite of banana but a bit of tomato is high on his favorites too.


I decided to be more realistic and reset my goal for Finn's New Year's Eve Party finishers to two quilts. I can always increase that goal. I planned to spend all my time finishing UFOs. Well my LQS bulletin just came in the mail. It has two classes that I could finish before I head off for FL. Oh, I am tempted. If I finished two shouldn't I be able to start two new ones? Makes sense to me. I don't quilt to any rules anyway so.....

Glad the tomatoes are ripening nicely. Did you manage to sort your blog out?

I bet Kipper misses having the dogs there too.

Our tomatoes have been done and gone for a long time now........so all that promise of great eating on your plant makes me envious!

Kipper is so good . . . I just imagine Harper being still for one moment with that clipper nearby. Around here, a good brushing is an aerobic activity. My girl just wants to be a dirty bird *s*

I once had a dog that liked raw carrots but I've never heard of one who will eat tomatos!

That's a lot of dog fur! Hope everyone stays cool and light.
