Thank You and a Challenge Card


We have blue skies and sunshine today now that was nice to wake up to!
I would like to say a massive THANK YOU for all of you that went and signed the petition following the attack on my little Max, so far over 200 names have been added from this appeal. The support has been brilliant and has really helped us over the last few days. Max is doing really well the wounds are healing nicely and he is far more comfortable now. Tail is wagging again too!!!

Just another quick plug, if you haven't seen the post yet and want to, here it is but be warned the pics are nasty!

Ok onto my card which I made for Sheila and Ian Ferguson, known to Max as Mr and Mrs Biscuits as every weekend he used to invite himself into their home and help himself!! hehe. Honestly without them Max would not be here and that is no exaggeration, it is a fact, we are indebted to them forever!!

This is Barney (but not unlike max) from Digi Stamp Boutique coloured with promarkers. The fab papers are Dovecrafts Sugar and Spice and the matching flower is from the same range and I popped a lovely pink pearl in the centre. Sentiment is from Stampin Up 'Tiny Tags' and ribbon is from stash, hope you like it.

I am entering this into the following

Do-Crafts Challenge - Animals

DSB - Monthly Competition

Bearly Mine - Ribbon and Pearls

Thanks for poppin in

take care

My dog savaged - WARNING horrible pics in this post!!


(edited I moved nice pic to the top, just realised some people have thumbnail of pics,)

Ok I have thought long and hard(for a week) about doing this post as I did not want to write it while I was so angry.

My dog Max was nearly killed last Wednesday while going for his evening walk by 2 dogs that charged out from a house (the front door was left open) and proceeded to lock onto his neck and basically tried to rip him apart. My poor husband had to witness this attack which lasted for at least five minutes whilst trying desperately to save him. These dogs had no collar to grab,nothing! We are very thankful to 2 of our friends who heard the screams (of dog and husband)and had no hesitation in helping. Below are some pictures of the result of this attack and the reason for my post is in the hope that a few people will sign the below petition to replace the current dangerous dogs act.

The owners of course have taken no responsibility, have not apologised, have shown no concern what so ever for Max and have not offered to pay anything towards the vet bill which is now just short of £1000.00 and is ongoing. Max has suffered major surgery, the pain and stress which has followed has been almost unbearable for him.

Please please take about 2 minutes to read and sign the below petition(link) if you agree.

thank you
