One month and one day

Sense my last post... Wow..

Dopey is now 6 months and 4 days old!!

I can't even begin to believe that he was this small once!

Now he's huge and still growing! He loves the snow! It's insane! He loves to run around in circles and run and dive off the steps into the mounds that are out there! I'm going to start a youtube for just his videos!!

I started his shop on Etsy also but haven't had the chance to put anything in it but now that we are snowed in, I have no choice!!

I am re-taking all photos for the items in my shop, I have two posted now. I seem to be getting more attention on them now! I hope my stuff sells FAST! I'm kinda tired of it hanging out in my room!!!

Dopey Doodle's Blanket

I have a new puppy!! YAY! Well.. I've had him for a while now! I've been looking for a bigger crate (found it on Craigslist for only 25 bucks and its big enough for him to have for his entire life time!) and a new bed to go in it! So after looking in pet store after pet store and any place that carried pet supplies I gave up on trying to find one I can afford for his size! SOOO I decided to dig out my old trusty (I guess it is, I've only used it once before!!!) sewing machine and and stitched up a cute clutch to try it out and get my hands back into sewing mode! I got 3/4ths of the way done when it made a weird noise and the thread snapped.. I didn't think anything of it but I took it apart and oiled it up (following the instructions in the book!) and went right back to it! A few stitches in and it did it again, only this time the thread didnt snap but it wasn't sewing! OH NO!! *groans* my gma had a stroke years ago and wouldn't know what to do and my mom hasn't used on from the time she was my age!!

I had my mom finish it up seeing as it got the better of me and I SWEAR THAT THING SMELLS FEAR!! We finished it and stuffed it (till I ran out so now I have to buy more) and I'm VERY happy with my work! It turned out better then I thought it did!!

Skull and Crossbones are the top and the strips are the bottom!

NOTE: The blanket is on a THREE SEAT COUCH! While taking the photos I had to STAND ON A CHAIR!! *nods* Not easy to do in a basement!!!

R.I.P. Ginger

October 10th, 1997 - September 8th, 2009

If my Aunt had taken her to the vets a YEAR ago like she was told and I kept pushing for (shes technically her real owner and the one to pay the vet bill) her to do she wouldn't have died in my arms!
The day of her death my Aunt finally gave into RUSHING her to the vets and spending (now wasting) $400 when it would have been maybe $70
Now the other dog, Zoe, is completly lost and confused and the court isn't the same. Some streets have a Neighborhood watch, we had Ginger. She wouldn't hesitated to attack any animal causing a problem (sometimes she was to stupid to back down and run) and she never lost a fight. Not even with the stupid fox that Animal Control won't do anything about! Yet again the stupid dog should have backed down when it ran across the stream but no she just HAD to chase it further and almost fell into the half frozen stream *sighs* thankfully my male neighbor helped keep it away while I dragged her and Zoe back inside.

This Christmas will be h*ll... Ginger is the first to open her present..
(See my youtube video for proof at: )

I looked outside today feeling horiable because its been raining and shes in the ground getting wet... is that weird? Is it normal to feel like this??

It's been taking a lot of effort to not run outside in the pouring rain and dig her up with my bare hands and just hold her... I never knew that I cared about her this much! I always thought of her as the annoying dog who gets into my art supplies and pees in my room... I never thought I would miss her this much..

She isn't even my dog so when my Guinea Pigs pass... I don't know what I'll be like... Thats a horrid thing I don't ever want to have to think about!!!

NOW ONTO THE OTHER STUFF! I know that Etsy is for handmade stuff only BUT I hate eBay and craigslist didn't work so I figured I'll post the stuff I don't want on there. Like this Misfits Clock for example!
Hopefully tomorrow I can get some good pictures of other stuff... Like a dress from my Aunt's wedding and a horse barn (child's play toy) OH and lets not forget the Porcelain Dolls that I never wanted!
Ehh... I'm going to knit and watch Death Note II again...
