Baddog finished off a bit of ice cream she found in the freezer at the weekend, and has been obsessed with the bin this week.  :D

Bella is 15 months old  We've just moved from Devon to Norfolk, and were so proud when her new vet said "She's perfect! And so beautiful! Bella's going to be spayed on Tuesday (she has a little hernia) and we're concerned about the collar she'll have to wear. We've bought a comfy collar, but

We did arts and crafts!
« on: June 17, 2017, 08:10:24 AM »
It was Billy's birthday on Thursday.  My baby boy is 25!
He and Harvey are very close and have a really special bond and as this is most likely the last of his birthdays that he can share with his dog, I decided a special gift was in order.

In my head a framed dog footprint seemed like a perfect gift - after all, so many things in this house have been printed with muddy paws over the years - and relatively easy to achieve.  Yeah, right!   :o

I did a trial run and discovered the paw in question was too hairy.  Cue some trimming.
I tried standing him on a painted lid but he refused to put his paw down, so I resorted to painting his tickly paw.
Harvey was not quite as engaged in the arts and crafts activity as I had hoped.  He is not the most cooperative dog at the best of times, but I got a couple of prints onto pretty paper and then wiped his paw clean with a baby wipe.  He seemed clean but still there were paw prints all over the kitchen floor.  I gave him a footbath and still more footprints so I took him outside.  I wiped the floor and normality was restored though I suspect there are some paint specks lurking, I'm just choosing not to look!   ;)

I'm quite pleased with the result and Billy loved it, though I don't think I'll be rushing to repeat the exercise.
