More puppy porn...












For brief, shining moments today, the five-second rule was replaced by the 15 minute rule, if you were so inclined, because I did my floors...So well and so thoroughly that had I dropped my spaghetti squash and marinara sauce during that 15 minutes, I'd have given consideration to just hunkering down and eating from the floor. But then I opened the door and let the dogs back in.

It was great while it lasted! Clean, fresh smell, no crunching underfoot while I walked.... no doghair swirling around my ankles.... :)

Poor Sadie got bitten by something yesterday.... we have no idea what. She turned around to look at me in the backyard, with such a sad face. I thought, "awww, she's looking older, no more puppy....." But then I noticed the fullness to her snout, and she came over to me and I thought, "no, something is wrong!"












(ignore the wood chips on the rug....Tuffboy got Tuff with an old Halloween decoration he stole from my office....I haven't vacuumed it up yet!)














(Poor baby!)
I realized her entire face was swollen, but it was more swollen on her left.....and as I checked her over, she would not let me touch her face, but I found a huge welt on her left hip.... See it, in the picture below?






























We may never know what it was. She kept that sad face most of the day yesterday!
But today, she's her fine sleek self with no swelling at all. The welt on her hip is almost gone. I may still talk to the vet about what the dosage of Benadryl would be for her, in case she ever has that happen again, and has any breathing issues. Scary!
And for puppy porn of a more lighthearted sort... here are Tuffboy and Tuffgirl, curled up to sleep.












Normally, Tuffboy is quite the gentleman. However, I did hear him gasp in protest last night and mutter something about Tuffgirl Kimi "packing it on".











I don't think Kimi was very appreciative of his remarks, since the last time she was in the vet's office, she heard the word "diet" mentioned in the same sentence with her name. Seems she was a mere 8 ounces away from her top weight for her breed.....












Tuffboy hastened to tell her she was beautiful and his favorite, and he would always love her, and, and.... for Pete's sake, could she please move so he could catch his breath?












I guess they worked it out, because a few moments later, snoring commenced, in stereo!

Got a couple of blocks done for the S.Sampler quilt...













Five left to go...the last block we received last Saturday, and the four extra for the center.











And then, I just realized, I will need to figure out how to finish it...

There is apparently a greenish border and then background material, around each block, before the sashing.....
















Eeek!

:) Have a quilty weekend!

I love to start my day with puppy porn. I wish my girls would snuggle like your pups do.

You know, I already forgot about doing my Saturday Sampler block. I will have to do the last block this weekend so Janet can help me figure out what to do with them all.

Happy Weekend!!

Aww, so glad Sadie is all better! The two cuties in the lil cage are good buddies, aren't they? Such fun pictures!
I had one of those moments recently...the moment when I spread Wiffie's kitty quilt on the bed and realized it STILL wasn't as large as she wanted! It's the same moment that you start scrounging through the stash, hunting more of THAT fabric!! I know your green sashings and all the rest will be super!!
