Eclipse... my hero!!

So this blog is not about beads... but thought you'd enjoy it!

The other day I thought Eclipse had been getting into the kleenex in the bathroom garbage.. I was wrong.
Apparently, he was being a hero and saving me from an evil roll of toilet paper!!  It was a close call, the tp roll was in the hallway, not far from my bedroom!  Eclipse managed to wrangle it out of it’s hiding place, the plastic package, and after what looked like an extensive battle, defeat it.  Large chunks of tp were strewn at the bottom of the stairs, across the living room, and on his fave dog bed!  Not to worry, I checked him closely, and he suffered no wounds in the battle, and after a treat for his bravery, was resting comfortably!!

the face of a hero!

I just realized I put a pic of Eclipse up on FB, but not here!  I have had him for a week already, and he seems to be settling in.  We're still leaning some of our house manners, but he is such a happy boy, I probably let him get away with too much!
 He had bad rash spots on his back, so is on antibiotics for it.  His skin is clearing up, but getting the pills into him has been interesting.  Took 2 days for him to figure out the pill was inside the peanut butter, and spit it out.  Took 3 days for him to find the pill inside a sealed pocket made from a cheese slice, and spit out the pill.  Next attempt was hiding the pill in a piece of hot dog.  He figured that out the first time I tried it!  So.. until I can think of another way to hide the pills, we're down to sticking my fingers down his throat to get him to swallow!  Neither of us are thrilled with this, but it's for his own good... and I can wash my hands.. lol.

greyhound collars

I just found out today, there could be 150-200 people at the greyhound picnice.  I better get beading if I want enough collars.  I was coming up with some design ideas the other day... now just have to get them into patterns.  I think I might do a few single strand collars, with a large split ring, that can be used as tag collars.  Some with lots of crystals and shiny metal beads, for those dogs that like some bling  =)  I'll have to use the heaviest gauge wire possible to make them sturdy.   I've got some interesting lampwork style, and ethnic beads that would probably work really well too.  hhmmm... ideas just flying thru my head.. lol
But... I really want to get these bunny bracelets done first.. so, it's back to work for me.
