I have updated my PurplePoppy Crafting page with a few recent makes.

We are officially in Spring now and the trees have blossom and the various bulbs are out. It's lovely to finally see some colour in the gardens.

We have been having lovely sunny days recently, but there is still a real nip in the air. Nice enough yesterday afternoon that dad and I sat out in the garden. The dogs love it out there. So looking forward to the lovely hot days of summer.

Here's a photo of Song with her new Bunny. It looks like she is going to rip it to threads, but she just mouths on it for a second and then cuddles it:)



Hope you have had a nice week and are looking forward to your weekend.

I have just updated my PurplePoppy Crafting page with some recent cards and Toppers.

Well a misty start here and it's a degree or two cooler than yesterday.

With two fleeces on I was able to sit out in my dad's garden for about an hour yesterday afternoon. Sun was lovely, but the breeze was nippy, hence the fleeces. Song loves being out in the garden. She supervised my dad whilst he pottered and then was happy to lay in the sun.

I recently got Song a new collar with tassel from GAP (click the button over on the right of this page). As most of you know, Song is rather a Diva when it comes to her photo being taken, so these two were the best out of a bad lot.

Welcome to our new Followers. Unfortunately I don't know who you are, as for some reason Blogger isn't adding you at the begining or end of my Followers section. You must be in there somewhere as my numbers went up by two.

Hope you will enjoy popping in and reading my ramblings. I keep my posts at around 100, so not too many to look back over if people want to.

Hope everyone is having a good start to the week.

Followers Dog Gallery

Sadly the Followers Dog Gallery is no more. It had been playing up. I just found out it's because they have closed down. Didn't get anything from them to warn that they were shutting down for good.

Please go to this site and sign the petition to get Greyhound racing banned in Vietnam. The petition is open to most countries, so please take a look.

The conditions the dogs are kept in are awful, as is their treatment.

Well the weather has gone colder and wet here. Yesterday we had very strong winds, with gusts up to gale force. The winds have gone today thank goodness.

I have updated my PurplePoppy Crafting page with some photos.

Song and I want to wish Elmo (formerly Cane) a very long and happy life with his new forever mum Sue. Sue was fostering Cane, but I think we all knew that little cutie was never going to leave;)

I would love to have another Greyhound, but until the time is right, Song has to make do with Rudi. I can honestly say she loves him. As you can see she's always cuddling up to him:)

I've Been Tagged

Well Song and I have been tagged by Pearl over at Tricks For Treats. We have to tell you the answers to the following 10 questions and then tag 8 blogs to do the same.

1. Describe Yourself In 7 Words

Me: Loyal, Happy, Tall, Big, Crafty (as in making things), smart-ish and compassionate.

Song: Loyal, Beautiful, Blue, Squeekaholic, Zoomahoplic, Timid and a Hussy:)

2. What Keeps You Up At Night?

Me: Pain (from Arthritis)

Song: Nothing. I love to sleep.

3. Who Would You Like To Be?

Song: Nothing. I told you I was a hussy;)

5. What Scares You?

6. The Best And Worst Of Blogging

Me: Best - Chatting with lovely doggy people. Worst - Not having enough time to chat with said doggie people.

9. Slankets, Yes Or No?

Me: I love to snuggle, so I don't mind.

10. Tell Us Something About The Dog That Tagged You.

Pearl is a beautiful Pointer/Lab mix. Apparently she was born in the Autumn of 2010. From the photos on her blog, she loves to curl up and snooze. She has some problems with her skin, but her lovely mum and dad are doing all they can to get that sorted.


Right I think most of the blogs I follow have already been tagged. If you haven't, then please count yourself tagged.
