What a gift!

The dogs were given a great gift. A friend of my peeps made a throw blanket with her own paws and gave it to the dogs.


Here is the reverse side.Many thanks to Joyce who did this, Kali loves it!

Kaci is unsure-she won’t go near it. Too many black dogs. Hey, Kaci, there are wheaten Scotties on it also.

In case you’re wondering, Joyce doesn’t do this for a living and that’s why it is even more special. Joyce doesn’t follow this blog (yet) but I’m going to tell her.  If you comment, please say where you’re from  (state, province, country)-she’d be surprised.


Thank you Joyce for a wonderful Christmas gift.

  12. That is a mighty fine throw blanket and it will be very welcome during the frigid Arizona winters when the heavy snows fall and you are fighting through blizzards and deep drifts across the desert. I was going to say it would be nice to sit under and watch the Cardinals or Patriots but…ha, ha, ha, ha.
