NEW PUPPY GIFT
Good evening, I hope you are all well and for those of you who are Wimbledon fans I hope you are enjoying it so far.
Thank you for all your comments on my Simple Little Bucket.
Tonight I have gone back into my photos and found this one of my New Puppy Gift that I was asked to make. The couple who were receiving it didn't have children but loved their dogs. They were awaiting the day when their new puppy could come home, and their friend thought they would love this gift mainly because it was like the arrival of a new baby.
I took a gift box and wrapped the doggy blanket round the outside and used the lead instead of ribbon. In the box I put a collar, water/food bowl, a towel, treats, rope toy and a toy that treats can be hidden in - lots of time spent trying to get them out. I did it up in cling and tied it with cord that had a whistle on it. All useful things for that new pup.
As for the work being done with the electric cable, thankfully it stayed dry the whole day, other wise my living room and stair carpets would have been in a right mess as the men were in and out all the day, they did put covers down but they moved as the day went on with all the walking on them. Harris our lab was not over impressed with it all, he is so laid back but the noise got to him. Our walls of the cottage are 18ins thick so lots of drilling to get through so the cable could be fed through.
But it's all done, the cupboards have been put back and tomorrow I will have to go for top to bottom doing house work we have visitors from Canada arriving Monday lunch time and I am at work all day from 7.30 it's going to be fun. Thankfully Charlie is very good at helping and doing cooking etc.
That's all for tonight, and thank you for having a look at my page.
