It hardly seems a year since she had one but Stella has a birthday again tomorrow. A superior senior lady of 12, we’ll be celebrating with extra fuss and cuddles, and, no doubt, far too many extra treats!
There was a big puppy called Stella,
More faithful to me than a fella!
Always by my side,
She fills me with pride,
And “I love you” is what I tell her.
Life’s not always perfect of course,
She has the appetite of a horse,
Her farts are so stinking,
My eyes are watering and blinking,
And I open the windows with force!
Traditional birthday ditty done with, the kind people at Fox Chapel Publishing sent us a copy of their new book, ‘Making Clothes For Your Dog’, to give away this week.
I’m about as much use as a chocolate teapot when it comes to needlework, but, I know a lot of you are much more handy than me so you may like to have a go at this.
I’m no expert but the book looks very well put together with clear instructions and a handy envelope in the back for the patterns.
I’ve taken a few photos so you can get a little idea and also picked out a couple of items that are most suitable at this time of year when walkies are either cold or wet!
As you can see, the models are teeny-tiny but the book has a size guide so you can make these items for proper size dogs too. Most are too frilly for Stella but I do like the hoodie. She’s a bit of a tomboy like me I think!
So, if you’d like to have a go at making clothes for dogs or know someone that would, all you have to do to enter is tell me your favourite dog breed in the comments.
UK only I’m afraid and the competition will end at 11:59pm Tuesday 24th November. The winner will be chosen by the WordPress random giveaway picker and I will announce who it is on Woof Wednesday 25th November on Twitter and Facebook. I appreciate this isn’t running as long as other giveaways but I’d like to get it sent out before the postal system goes bonkers in December!
Good luck! 🙂
