No squirrel is safe......

If there is anything Knuckles loves more then a good toy or bone.....It's to chase squirrels... Just say "squirrel" will send Knuckles running for the back door...out running... up a tree they go, or if there is time under the fence.... Then he stays out there, barks, jumps, paces, and waits... HOPING they are dumb enough to come down... AND sometimes they are, he is waiting.... He hasn't caught one yet, but he has been close..... So 2nite... not the greatest pictures.. starting to get dark, I let Knuckle's know there was a invader in the yard... Out running he goes, BUT there was not one but 2.....

Knuckles, giving them the business!

Yes, our yard is safe from all squirrels! LOL

I am working at the shop Primitive Chick tomorrow... Keep your fingers crossed the back doesn't get to angry at me....Taking this little beauty in to be sold...( don't worry I am not lifting it)

I know I should be keeping this... BUT, I can't, just no space, I would have to part with something else... and there is nothing I am ready to part with.....SIGH......

I stayed around home today.. Don't know if it's the weather or what, but the back was sore.... so I stayed in and worked on the girls.... they are not done.... but they are coming along... Again, not the greatest picture.....few details and hair and they will be done.....

I'm thinking it might be time for a giveaway.... I see I am up to 171 followers... WOW... Never thought when I started this I would have this many followers or make so many wonderful blogging friends!!!!! I am blessed! So details to follow, once I hit 175 a giveaway..... Maybe one of the "girls" will be part of it! Have a great weekend! OLM

I am just in love with the name Knuckles! He is a lab right? We used to have a black lab named Satin, beautiful sweet dogs! Your cupboard is gorgeous, I feel for you having to get rid of it. My eyes are bigger than my house and I tend to purchase more than I can store...sigh.
Have a great weekend!

Knuckles sounds like a good dog. Don't want critters in the yard.
Our dog Puddles likes to chase and hunt, squirrels, chipmonks, mice and birds flying over head. She will chase a chipmonk and dig a hole to china to try and find it. Fortunately, she does this when I take her to the woods. Don't want any holes in my yard.
Looking forward to your giveaway. Love the dolls.

Yes the squirrels have no chance here between the cats in the front yard and the dogs in the back and lately the mocking birds are after them. Love the little dry sink, I know what you mean, can't hardly keep anything for not having room. I am closing down my booth, I have two pie safes up there and no place at home to put them. Need a bigger house or less stuff, I vote for the bigger house. Love the dolls, nice job. Vicky

Marie ~
I wish I had a Knuckles to keep the squirrels out of the yard! Pugs are totally oblivious!
I really think you ought to somehow find a spot for that wonderful dry sink!!!!!!
Hugs :)

Mary said...

Hi Marie, Love how your girls are coming out. So Prim Purrrrfect! Sorry to hear that your back is still giving you trouble, please try and take it easy. Dang, I sure wish I lived closer, I'd be there in a heart beat for that dry sink. My newfoundland/husky used to be just like Knuckles with the squirrels. But,since he is getting older, he just sit's in the yard and watches them our dogs are just the greatest! Big Hugs Mary

I am so used to the barking that the only time it bothers me is when I'm on the phone! Our dogs bark at everything!
Love your new girls! Feel bad you have to haul away that dry sink. She's a beauty.....
Please try to not overdo. You are supposed to be resting that back!
