Va Tech Hokie Birds

We were in Blacksburg, VA last weekend Home of Va Tech and since my daughter in law graduated from there of course we are fans so had to go to the bookstore and get T shirts etc. She wanted a couple of new ones since she likes to wear her VA Tech shirts at Auburn Univ. (cause once a "hokie", always a "hokie" where she is getting her PHD. Anyway since the last time I was there seems they have all these 5 ft tall Hokie Birds all around town suppose to be 75 different ones. We were in a hurry so I only got pics of 2 of OH and btw...they cost 7500 bucks a piece!!

Dogs and booster shots..

Yesterday I took both Megan and Morgan to get their shots updated since they were due but didn't plan to do it all at once time. Tried to book them several weeks prior to their regular groomers and no way could I get an appointment and of course their shots had just run out about 2 weeks here I go to a new groomer to get them in and of course they want updated shot records...which I am fine with that and think its a good thing. Just didnt have that much money set aside for all of it. Total bill was like $ Megan ran much higher cause she is a siezure dog on meds and they have to do an expensive test on her to check her levels since now she is on potassium bromide and has been for 4 years. They do a yearly testing on her and the test is almost $200.00. Well Ok I did they call me today and say the blood samples were not picked up last night and they need me to take her back to get a fresh blood sample...of course no charge..LOL...the cost of that test, they should come here to my house and get a blood sample with the price of gas..anyway...will have to take her back another time and they have to stick her again to get the blood for the test...I am not happy since, I had reason to be over there near the vets and had all this have to go back another time for the same thing I already did...its about 45 miles round trip but I will do it for her/Ms Megan!!!

Dog Harness Vests and Dresses

Something else I like to do in my spare time other than psp is making dog harness vests and dresses for my 3 pups. A good friend of mine got me started on them and the possibilities are endless. I like to make alot of them using second had baby clothes. No two are ever alike and you kind of have to figure it out as you go along to make it work. Of course the ones for the girls are cuter cause they have ruffles and bows. But I have made some pretty cute boy ones too! Here are some of the latest ones I have done.

I know I am nuts but I just love making them...LOL
