Dog Tales

Odie and Peanut
Adam and Anna got a new puppy and they needed someone to look after him for a few days that they both had to work. Of course, we were more than happy to spend some time with our new grand dog Odin and give him lots of lovin'. He is a schnoodle and he is four months old and so stinking cute and sweet!

At home, he had really taken to sleeping on and playing with some old couch cushions so they decided they needed some replacement covers. They knew who to ask and of course I was happy to make them so they brought them along when they dropped off Odin.

I think he's happy with the new covers. There were actually four cushions but I didn't get a photo of the last one I made. The covers are made very simply - envelope style - so they can be removed easily for cleaning.

It was such a joy to have him visit. Peanut is 8.5 years old and tiny so she is a bit overwhelmed by him but I do think she was enjoying the company. We lost our precious Molly on November 29 and we are all so heartbroken.

my sweet Molly girl
Molly was a mini Schnauzer and she had the most beautiful personality. She was diagnosed with heart failure at 8.5 years and we got to keep her for 1.5 years after her diagnosis. We are so grateful for that extra time we had with her. She tried so hard to stay with us and we tried so hard to keep her. We gave her lots of love and care but you don't always get what you want.

So sorry for the loss of Molly. It is incredible the hole they leave behind when they have to go. Odin and Peanut are adorable. Give them a great big hug for me. Hugs to you too. 💖 ;^)

Hi Ellen

I am so sorry about Molly. She was the best pair of slippers.
She was so pretty and soft. She loved to get up and twirl around when I came to visit. She was my favorite. We will all miss her.

Love sis
