charity: a good thing

every year in my town there is a day of celebration for our puppies. it is Muttfest and is put on by the SPCA. i donated a collar and leash i crocheted. it was for a silent auction. i don't know how it ended up doing because we had to leave the celebration a bit early. my dane started to get a bit snippy at some of the other dogs. he got really tired of every person in the park coming over to pet him. remember, he's deaf. so when people (and dogs) came up to him without warning or asking it well... just all got to be too much.
please, ya'll teach your kids (and yourself) to ask an owner before petting their dog. grrrr. this just makes me nuts! what in the world is going on inside these people's heads? he's 220 pounds for crying out loud! i mean, i know he's a gentle beast... but they don't!
okay, stepping off my box...

psssst.... did you notice my little tag on the first pic? woohoo! ed for ewedevil. clever, eh? there is a little red heart on the flipside. :D more on this later.

oh, and. he (josh, my dane) made the front page! a photographer from the local paper took some pictures of him and used one as the photo for the coverage of the event. pretty funny.

i loosely followed the pattern on CrochetMe. there is not a pattern for the collar, i just made it to match. i stole the hardware from some old worn out leashes/collars/belts we had around the house. i used and E hook and nylon string fround in the hardware department at walmart.

my daughter's surgery went as smooth as can be. she went in at 9am and was home resting on the couch by 12:30. crazy, huh!?! she was given a prescription of tylenol3, but she hasn't needed it. i've only had to give her regular kid's tylenol twice. she is doing just fabulous.

I always ask people before i pet their dogs. Often times they look at me funny ("why are you asking me if you can say hi to my dog?"), but I wish more people would ask me before they decided they wanted to pet my dogs!

Glad to hear about your daughter! I was worried. :)

it is sooo hard to teach kids not to run up to the dogs they see. i am always saying wait until you ask to my daughters! it's important i think also! you never know if the dog likes kids or not!
glad to hear your daughter is doing ok!
