Dog Troubles

See this adorable German Sheppard? Her name is Rani and we had her since she was 6 months old, she is now 4. We also have a Maltese which is 10 and a Border Collie that is 5. All of them were puppies when they came to live with us. Just before Christmas we picked up a one year old Kelpie from the pound to give him a new home. He is a very affectionate and playful dog (and tends to wander a bit too). But we now have a problem. Rani, the Sheppard, has all the sudden started to attack our Border Collie. And attacking is putting it mildly. I had Cooper at the vets several times as she has done some real damage biting him. I have to keep Cooper inside now most of the time and need to chain Rani when I let Cooper out. We have contacted the German Sheppard Rescue to get some advice and were told that Rani possibly sees the new dog as a better and stronger male partner. We have come to the very difficult decision to find Rani a new home where she is an only dog and found a lovely family near Melbourne that will adopt her. We are now just waiting for a date from the transport company that will take her. It will be a very sad day for all of us to see her go. She is a lovely dog but I can't put my Border Collie through this any more.

Now to some happier news...The first LO was done with the new LYB 'Twig' collection...loving the colours!

...and this is a Fancy Pants LO done with supplies from lots of different collections(to see all Supplies used go to the FP Gallery!)

Back to School

School holidays are over... Oh well it was nice while it lasted. Back to the morning routine of packing lunches and getting kids ready and the afternoon activities. This week we have temperatures soaring into the high 30's and a couple of tennis sessions were canceled as it was just too hot. So instead we have been spending lots of time in the pool to cool down :)

Here is a sneak from a recent Fancy Pants blog post on the 'Love Birds' square Element Stickers. Check out how differently we have used those stickers. They are incredibly versatile!

And another Fancy Pants project that you can find in the Gallery using 'Lilac House' of my favorite releases of the past.

Back to creating some more! Love the weekends when we have nothing planned!
