More 4-Legged Members!
Since you've already met Squeak, I'd thought I'd give equal time to the doggies in our family. Bear is the handsome fellow with the scarf around his neck. Rosie is the lovely lady on the floor. Bear is my daughter's dog. From the moment they laid eyes on each other, they knew they belonged together. Bear is the gentlest dog I've ever seen, but he would give his life for her. He regularly gets beat up by Squeak but has never retaliated. In other words, he's a wimp. ;-) But he's a very well-loved wimp.
Rosie is the newest member of our family. We found her through a rescue organization at Petsmart. Remind me NEVER to take the kids with me when I buy dog food. She was in a crate and everyone was loving the cute little puppies that were there also. She was older (but it turns out not as old as they thought she was). She had been found wandering in the Grand Canyon by herself at about 2 months of age. She was in a rescue organization in Flagstaff and they thought she would have a better chance of being adoped her in Phoenix. So she was fostered in a home with 17 other dogs. I called David cause I was sure he would say no but to my surprise, he decided we needed another dog for Bear when Sherrie went to college. There have been times in the last 2 years when I was sure I was going to get rid of her. She wasn't housebroken and had a real chewing problem (the foster mom had said she had none of these problems because we specifically asked about them). But I'm glad we stuck it out cause she is a great dog. Sweet, smart and funny, I'm certainly glad we kept her.
What's this got to do with stitching? Not much but they are a part of who I am and they are friends I cherish.
