I ‘m not sure if she will even appreciate anything homemade, which is why I had such a hard time parting with it…

6 X 6

I’ve been tagged! By Rousabout! The idea is as follows:

“Open the 6th picture folder on your computer, open the 6th photo and blog it. Write something about it. Then tag 6 more people to do the same.”

Yagel and Sofie

Yagel and Sofie

 

This picture was taken Jan 7, 2007. Yagel was just over a year old.

WHen my husband and I were dating, his dog moved in with me and my dog. Her name was Sofie. She was a pure bred boxer, but because she was an albino, she couldn’t get pedigree papers. She was the sweetest thing, but she was TROUBLE with a capital T. She came to live with me becaseu she was left alone for most hours of the day, locked in a bathroom (otherwise whe would destroy the house). At my house she had a yard to runa round in. On the first day she tried todig to CHina… almost succeeded too… but she hit concrete….

Anyway, she adpred Yagel, but we didn’t really have any time for her and she was starved for attention. We gave her to a family with 1/2 an acre of garden and she is sooo happy….

Tagging 6 others:

Grand Revival Design

The Long Thread

We went to the zoo today. It was the perfect weather. Not too hot, not too cold… blue skies with a sprinkling of clouds. And the trees…. I was drooling… I took around 170 pictures….
