Oops.....

Saturday was a long day of shopping with just "some" success. I would have liked more, but I am a patient woman, so what I didn't find today.....I will find another day.

What I did find was my other pair of $14.99 drapes, my 12 forty-nine cent candle holders, 6 forty-nine cent dish towels, a darling white lantern for $5.99, 100 votive candles for $3.99, 3 black matted picture frames for a few my favorite pictures of Matt's for $5.00 each and some very awesome fabric for a secret project I am going to start....if it turns out...I will be making these for my etsy shop FourDogDay. I will show you when it's done. I am SOOOO excited. Saw it in a magazine and had to have one!!!

I will share photos of all of my goodies with you soon, but I decided to share some other photos with you first. We have been leaving sweet little Maggie, our newly adopted border collie mix out of her crate when we run out for a couple of hours to see how she does. So far, things had been going well. Today, I think we exceeded the amount of time that she will nap and quietly entertain herself with her toys and bones. Read on.....

The dogs all greeted us at the door when we walked in and the first thing Irv said was, "She has fuzz all over herself." As he let the dogs out, I walked into the kitchen and saw this....that would be feathers on the kitchen floor. I don't pluck geese in my kitchen, so feathers on the kitchen floor can never, ever be a good thing.

Backtrack......we had these two big throw pillows that Tresa gave us when she changed her decor. Here is one of them....nice pillows, probably not cheap.....


Right after we got Maggie, she managed to chew two of the corners of one of the pillows, but only the cover and not the feather filled insert.....do you get where this is going??????

Yep, you guessed it! She completed what she had started!

Can you believe that many fluffy little feathers came out of only 1/2 of that pillow?

So, we scooped up as much as we could as they billowed around the room, vacuumed up the rest, had to shake out all of the dogs blankets and afghans and vacuum the couch. Even when she came in from playing outside for 45 minutes, she still looked like a dog that was turning into a goose with little white feathers sticking out all over her black fur! I would have liked to have seen her face when she got the end open and the feathers started pouring out.

I'm sure Wrigley was sitting in the hallway, away from the action saying, "Oh shit, oh shit, oh shit! You are in some BIG trouble my friend!

It is snowing! ha,ha, ha what a sight!!! Wouldn't you loved to have seen him in action. He must have had a blast. (I mean if it was destined to happen)
Its a wonder you weren't sneezing while doing the cleanup!

I'm laughing here because I can see Maggie's face in my mind's eye as the feathers started coming out! She's lucky to have you both and your patience, and even Wrigley and Sparky are lucky for her. She has someone willing to teach her the ropes--even if it's "Man-oh-man you are in BEEEEEEG trouble now!"

Omg!! I would literally be crying in a heap on the floor.

LOL!! It may not seem like it now, but she will calm down. Lucy was so terrible the first couple of years we had her- I called her "Lucy-fur" She would leave me in tears about every other day and I thought I would have a breakdown. Once she dumped 2 gallons of water on our sofa while I was out. Just put the jugs up there and chewed the tops off.

Now she is a very sweet, calm, well adjusted dog.

I'm with Wrigley, in fact I started "oh shit"-ing as soon as I saw the first feather photo. It kinda makes me appreciate coming home to find the cats on the counter.
