Our Blaze has gone to a new home, and as of Sunday we have a new foster, racing name "AHK Call me Dad". Now, neither "Dad", "Daddy", "Pops", or anything else for that matter is one that canine and humans and dog care for, so finally in frustration, we started calling him "Charlie". He seems to answer to it, and the name suits him.
The other night we were outside photographing a low flying blimp, and I was lucky to get some really nice photos of the dogs. The guy with the "black eyes" is Charlie, and the other, with the sweet face, is our Penny.
Penny is white with Brindle, and is actually "two dogs", with a large brindle patch on one side, and white with pretty ticking on the other. Before we got her, we saw a photo of her, (taken from one side), and thought she was mostly white. But, weren't we surprised to greet a dog with a huge brindle patch on her other side?! You can see a tiny bit of her large brindle patch, (on her right side), if you look closely at her front view photograph above).
Also, take a good look at that "sit" of Charlie's. Anatomically speaking, a Greyhound isn't built to sit. Their bone structure makes it mechanically impossible and painful to try to do so. Charlie is one of the few "hounds" who can come as close as possible to sitting.
Have a good weekend, everyone!

I'm happy to share my latest purse made up in awesome colors of neon green and hot pink.
This purse is not too large or too small, and quite efficient in its roominess.
The inside is done in a fabulous designer green cotton dotted with several shades of pink. There are 2 good sized open pockets, (one has double rows of decorative machine stitching).
A third pocket is very large and lined with candy pink taffeta. I've listened to what people want when purchasing a purse, so I've installed not one but 2 zippers in this one. The large inside pocket is zipped, and the purse closes with a recessed top zipper!
I've also attached pretty beads, (in the same pink and green colors as the fabric), and chains to serve as a handy zipper pull!
Thanks for looking - please stop by my shops to see more.

For the last 2 months, we've had Blaze...
...and 3 weeks ago, an adorable little brindle girl, Vicky, (racing name Vicky Rumble), joined us. Vicky looks like a mini version of our dear former foster, Willie, but more feminine. With Blaze preparing to embark on his long journey, we are now down to 2 dogs - our Penny and Miss Vicky.
Blaze is a big, strapping big red fawn boy who is ALL boy...
Blaze, on the other hand, is a very friendly, joyful, goofy guy, who can become so enthusiastic that he easily forgets himself and gets carried away. Even his ears seem out of control. Aren't they wild?!
Safe travels, Blaze - a good and loving home awaits!
Have a good weekend, everyone!

I've used up the last of my peacock fabric, saving the pink for last. I call these "Pretty in Pink".
