Lucky #3

Well, Wednesday night my dog Ellie started having her puppies that we've been waiting for. It was a long night and she finally didn't finish having them until around 11am the next day. She gave birth to 5 beautiful puppies but unfortunately, all but one were born feet first and their amniotic sac busted before they were completely out and I guess either they suffocated or were stillborn. We tried our best to help her deliver them but, we lost all but one; puppy #3 that we've named Lucky(simply because he's lucky to be alive).

He will be going to a good home in Tennessee with my dad's cousin. I'd love to keep him and it's about to kill me to know that once he's old enough, he'll be leaving us. I gave them one condition, if they get him, they have to keep the name I give him. They agreed and, I know he's going to great home. I know he'll be very well taken care of. Their last dog lived to be 20 years old. It still makes me sad knowing that's the only one that lived and we won't be keeping him. But, we already have 3 dogs and can't really handle another one. I'm just glad that he will in fact be getting a great place to live with lots of love and attention.

Hello There, how you doin'?

I've got all these thoughts just floatin' through my head...

LOL That would be a Motion City Soundtrack song for anyone who doesn't know.

Ok, well anyways, it's been a minute since I last posted and I just felt like I needed to write something for anybody to read. (I'm not even sure that anybody reads my blog. If you do, leave me a comment so I know I'm not writing all of this in vain.)

This Saturday is my friend's baby shower. She will be home all the way from Germany so that her friends here in the states can attend the shower. I had no idea what I wanted to get her. So, I decided to sew together a car seat canopy that I found on the Sweet 'n' Sassy Girls blog. Now, I'm used to making baby quilts and such. I've never attempted anything else but, I'm up for a challenge. So, today, I treked off to Wal-Mart to purchase the supplies I needed. I got a cute fabric for the top and a very soft baby flannel for the back. The canopy that she created on the blog is a reversible canopy but I decided to just make mine one sided. I needed to keep it simple for now. Even though, reversible is just adding straps to the other side. But, anywho... right now, I'm waiting on a friend of mine to call me back so I can take it over and test it out on her baby's car seat so I can know the approximate place to put the straps that hold it onto the handle of the car seat. I think this is a cute idea and I sure hope it turns out right. I will try my best to post pictures when I'm finished with it.
