Artful Doggie

I guess I’m going to go with something different today.  My brother and his wife, Joe and Denise, have one child, their dog.  They have requested “baby” pictures of my puppy and I was considering emailing them some when I realized I had a fellow artist in my craft room; my puppy, Sara Lee. (‘Cause nobody doesn’t like Sara Lee!)

When I am at my seat in the craft room for even a moment, she is nudging me with her nose or whining.  This means she wants a scrap of paper.  I give it to her and she chews and shreds for awhile and then comes begging for another.  Eventually, we wind up with this new decor for the front and interior of her crate.

When she is satisfied, which may take some time, she is usually exhausted by her efforts and comes to sit on her pillow right behind my chair.

I always bring her crate in the craft room with her chew toys and her babies in it but she always rearranges things.  In this case, she left one of her babies propped up at the back of the crate.  I suppose so it could appreciate its improved surroundings and the joy of Sara Lee’s creativity in the area of home decor.

The other baby and chew toy were placed on her pillow by our little Picasso so that when she ran out of steam she would have company and a pacifier of sorts.  She seems to take this quite seriously and doesn’t vary her routine but is not too particular about what colors she uses.  She has never turned down a piece of paper I’ve offered… believing, I am sure, that true talent can make do with whatever is on hand.  God love the little stinker….

About Charlotte Zweigoron

Married, retired, never been so busy..! One of my most prized possessions is my very own craft room! And, actually, all the rest of our home is built around that craft room. Originally from Cincinnati, Ohio. I have been living in Georgia for over thirty-five years after a four year stint in Chicago. Crafting, reading and playing Mah Jongg with our circle of friends are my favorite activities right after spending time with my four grandchildren and four great-grandsons. Two of my three grown daughters and one of my two grandgirls live right across the yard from my husband and I. The youngest daughter, her husband, and our grandpups live in our same town. I have been teaching a paper crafting class for over three years and the ladies in the group have become a second family. We are well and truly blessed with people and critters to love..!

    Sara Lee is soooo cute! I’m glad she is creative, too! That makes her even more special. Can’t wait to meet her.

  2. I can’t wait to get in the craft room with Sara Lee. Such a girl! 🙂

    • After spending a week with Caitlynn while we were on vacation, Sara Lee seems to have made quite an impression on Cait and her neighbors. When I picked her up from Cait’s everyone said, “You manage to even make your dog prissie!”
