As most of you know Mom is opening a new blog to sell her cards and other pet related things that she makes. Here is a sample of some of the cards she has made this week (don't forget you can click on the photos to see them bigger) Mom will be donating ALL the money from the sales to the Elephant Sanctuary and also the ASPCA (American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals) Don't forget to vote for the new blog name ----------------->
Mom also loves making unusual animals such as this pig. Mom made the pattern herself, the material is calico and it is stuffed with 100% fiber fill. She then hand painted the entire pig using the Australian Dot Style - she used fabric paint so it is actually washable. Each animal she make is totally unique - she couldn't duplicate a pattern if she tried! This little pot belly pig is about 12" long and stands 10" high and is super cute.
In other news I went to my vets yesterday and I had another shot for my allergies (so far it hasn't helped) He recommended trying a different type of allergy medication. He couldn't find any redness on my nose but my chest was very red and he was rather concerned about my scratching at that and possibly causing a skin infection. Mom says she will put booties on my feet to stop me scratching so much - ppppppllllleeeaaassse -Booties - REALLY Mom !!!! We have stopped the prednisone and he says that should help with the feeling hungry all the time.
