Another photo of Doolin


My mojo is on vacation, so I thought I would share another photo of our little poodle.  He really has it made.  Roast chicken for lunch, a dog biscuit for dessert and a nap after.

Some new pics of Doolin



I finished sewing new curtains for the kitchen and started painting the walls.  Looks like it's going to take 3 coats to cover over the old color completely.  UGH...   I won't have time to work on cards until it's finished, so instead of posting a card, I thought I would share some pics of our miniture poodle Doolin. The old groomer we used has left the shop, so Doolin had a new lady groom him.  She put these cute little bows on his ears, but they only lasted about 10 minutes after he got home.
