8 weeks .... yesterday!

Yesterday was a milestone of sorts! Jaeger has been living with us for exactly 8 weeks AND it was also the first day that he didn't have to wear a bandage or a piece of clothing to cover his surgical site (which now resembles a belly-button in between his shoulders.)

It has been both a tiring experience & one of great bonding. He had the pleasure of running - totally free range - in our fenced in back yard last night to celebrate. That dog was both smiling & soaring. There were times when all four of his feet were in mid-air. Now ... that is JoY!

All this reminds me of how much work we pet lovers need to do to help animals. I shutter when I think of what might have happened to Jaeger if someone had not taken the time to rescue him so we could find each other. Thanks so much Loving Paws Rescue!

Thus far, in 2009, I have raised over $73.00 for PittieLove Rescue. It is good - but not good enough ......

So ... back to carding wool I went! Pawprints Dance on My Heart is my latest creation. Wool from a BFL/shetland x, dyed a light shade of chestnut & then blended with handpainted tussah silk & angelina - is fabulous!!

Please remember - 10% of my sales go to helping these misunderstood dogs find good, forever homes!

And Jaeger .... well - he is resting up for some more free-range activities tonight!!

So glad you and Jasper found each other! And I'm glad he's better (and doesn't have to wear a shirt anymore - even though it was cute!)
