Back to fall fun.....

Hi there! We had a wonderful weekend of soccer games and football games. Now I am staring at a mountain of laundry to do and my children want to go to the mall. Happy to have a day off from school and not get up at the crack of dawn. So, the laundry has to wait and I plan to have fun with my kids.

My "purse puppy"

Hi there! Well, I have a cute little "purse puppy" I wanted to share with you. Cooper is 9 weeks old and my little buddy. (He's sleeping on my lap while I am blogging here!) This bag I have him in for the picture was maded my my friend, Takako. She lives in Japan and is SO TALENTED. To see her blog go to the blog scroll bar on my blog and click on "Takako's blog." (But just be aware you will only understand it if you read Japanese. Otherwise, the pictures are beautiful of what she makes!) She makes beautiful bags and this one just so happens to fit my little Cooper! We went to the store and everyone thought he was a webkinz. He is almost 3 lbs now. Since we got him he's gotten a little chubby. Treats for going potty outside can fatten up a boy! What a love and I just can't be happier with him.
On the knitting front. I am in the middle of a great bag. (Pictures to follow another day.) It's a pattern I got from and it's called "A little slip of a thing." Great pattern and an great looking bag so far. I'll post a pic or two when I can take some today or tomorrow.
Thank you Takako for my bag last year. Little did you know it would fit my new puppy. You are a great friend and I love all of the wonderful things you make me!

Full blown puppyhood!!

We did it! We are officially dog owners. I never thought it would happen, since I am a bit afraid of big dogs, but if you saw our sweet guy (all 2 pounds of him!) you would see how great he is. We bought him from a wonderful breeder in Connecticut who specializes in Maltipoo puppies. Her website is Our baby boy's name is Cooper and he is fabulous. He's smart and easy going. Playful, yet so calm. I couldn't ask for a better dog. If you have a hankering for a puppy, give Gia a call at the Maltese Country number. She just had a new litter of Maltipoos and they are ready to take home in October.
