Chester

November 19, 2009

Our dog, Chester, is an eating machine.  He seems to be able to eat any thing in any amount.  It amazes me because he’s a small dog.  He only weighs 25 lbs.  He can’t be all stomach.  There has to be room inside his skin for a heart, lungs, bones, muscles….but the things he consumes must take up space.  It’s crazy!

Things he’s eaten in the past:

A banana.  The whole thing.  The only part he left was the 1/2″ stem you use to pull back the peel.

A stocking full of Christmas candy.  Just assume wrappers are always included.

Bags of used cat litter that he’s pulled from the trash can.

Coffee grounds also from the trash can.

A large bar of 72% dark chocolate and subsequently about 1/4 cup of hydrogen peroxide.

A plate of “welcome to the neighborhood” cookies.

Most recently a loaf of bread.  He only left the heal.

A few of those items were accidently left out within his reach and we learned to put things away, we also got a new trash can with a tighter lid, now we are finding out that he can reach things on top of the kitchen counter.  So, now we have to push things back towards the wall so that he can’t pull stuff down.  Unbelievable!

Christmas Stuff

December 29, 2008

Chester got some really great gifts this Christmas.  His grandparents gave him a huge bone, and a yellow squeeky toy that he loves.  Robert and I gave him a new rubber chicken to replace the one he loved into three pieces.  His neighbors, Mike, Dale, Rosie, Sydney, and Buddy gave him two squeeky toys.  Here is a photo of him with his favorite of the two.

I decided to give as many hand made gifts as possible this year.  In previous posts there are picutres of some of those gifts.  The spa baskets went to Robert’s mom and sister.

Then the spa face cloths went to Jackie and Andrea. 

 

I also made this hat for Robert’s dad.

Hand-made Gifts

November 13, 2008

I’ve decide to hand make gifts for my family this year.  I’m using patterns from Sugar N’ Cream.

This one pictured above is a small basket including three face cloths, a bottle of lotion and a nail scrubber.

This yellow one is only pictured with two face cloths but, the thrid one is solid yellow.  It also includes a white scrubby puff and will have a bottle of lotion.

Pictured above is a loopy dish cloth.  It will have a partner but, the second one isn’t complete yet.  It is currently solid blue with two yellow stripes one at the top and one at the bottom.
