Well, the good news is my Golden Retriever Handbag - seen below, actually found a new home from ebay this weekend. So, next job is to package that up and send off to its new loving home. The bad news is the lurgy continues so not much chance of getting the faux leather patchwork handbag finished today or any new projects started, looking doubtful on the Folksy Shop too which I had hoped to have a start on.
But here I am ready to introduce dog number 3. Please welcome our Alfie who came to live with us last year age 19 months, another rescue though this time taken privatly from a couple who were splitting up and unable to keep him. We had just registered with Labrador Rescue South East and Central when our friends on the dog walk heard about Alfie, exactly what we were looking for. Having lost 3 of our old dogs that year the gap they left behind was unbareable, there was a short time were I was never going to adopt another the grief was so bad. But eventualy the quietness of the other two became too much, and we decided that as both our yellow Labradors were meant to be blacks, we would register to adopt the black labrador we had always wanted.
Alfie bounded into our lives on October 31st 2009 and turned everyone upside down, he was a bit of a dynamo to say the least, both Jaja and Tess were initially appauled at his arrival and it took some time for them to accept him. Now Alfie and Tess play like new pups and even Jaja plays with him when we are out, sure you will agree he is rather a handsome boy.
