Thank You Groomer

                                            This is the card Mocha gave to his groomer 

                                                            Here is what she did for him


                                                               The day before 




                                             Much better for 100 + weather and water therapy

                                                 My one 4th of July card 

Sunday, May 15, 2022


                           I was gifted this stamp 

                            There is some debate as to whether she is a fairy or an angel 

                           What ever she made a lovely card 

                            Maybe I should have added wings 

                             What do you think ?



                                               What do you think  Angel / Fairy  ?

                                       Puppy is much improved 

                                       Pretty sure he will always have a limp but he has four legs 

                                      He is very spoiled  and ready to be out of the pen

This box is for the little girl down the street 
 Not so little anymore 
She will be 17 this summer 
Where does the time go 
The best part is that it is filled with chocolate

                           TWO WEEKS AGO TODAY


                         Our 7 pound Yorkie 15 months old 

                         took his fourth training class 

                        We came out strapped him in his booster seat 

                        and started to back out of the parking spot 

                        puppy made the worse continuous crying 

                       stopped on the spot 

                        The straps on his seat had snapped and the seat collapsed 

                         crushing the dog 

                          We took him to PET ---- ER  they x-rayed  put him in a cast 

                         and told us his leg is so crushed if  we didn't do surgery he would loose the leg 

                           So we took him to Gainesville to UF Small Animal Hospital 

                           He was there a whole week 

                          They had to rebuild his leg 

                           Now he has 12 weeks recovery and has to stay in his pen

                            Not a happy camper  He will be super spoiled in three months 

                            I may be the one taking his  meds

 As promise to all the wonderful people who enjoyed my demonstration and bought my cards on the weekend  THANK YOU

 Here are instructions on how to plant your card 

First the seed in your cards is a mix of HERBS

I use a wet wipe container because it is a good shape and size  any pot will do 

Be sure there are holes in the bottom 

Put about two inched of potting soil in pot and moisten 

Wet the card and place it face down on the soil 

If you must, cover it with a very thin layer of soil 

But it can be left uncovered 

Cover the container with a bowl cover or cling wrap 

Place on top of your fridge 

Don't touch for four days 

Check if there is any sign of growth  take cover off

Put the plant  in indirect sun and keep moist 

When second set of leave appear transplant into your garden or a larger pot 

Enjoy and  THANK YOU

For Hospital Staff

                                It took me three days to get this made 

                            It is not easy getting to equipment with a walker 

                            It is in the  mail to all the willing helpful staff at West Marion 

                           For those of you who don't know  I stepped on a dog chew bone 

                           It rolled and so did I 

                           I broke my femur   All pinned back together now 

                           I am doing fine walking with a walker 





                                               Also not easy to take photos if you can't let go of walker
