Finally Did It and Other Stuff!!

We finally decided to adopt a new dog it has been two years since Boots died so it will be hard at first to get into dog mode again she is a 1 year old black and tan Cocker Spaniel.  The family that has her now is moving and can't take her with them.  We pick her up on Saturday, her name is Dotty and she is full of Vim and Vigor that is for sure.  She may run these two old people into the ground!! LOL  The only problem we may have is will she get along with our cats.  Holly has been around a dog so I don't think she will have a problem with Dotty other than Dotty wanting to play all the time.  Tip is outside by choice and he can vaporize rather quickly.  Anyway here is her picture


Spent yesterday with my BFF at Rockville, Indiana.  We went to an Amish Bulk Food Store bad for me because I had to have a loaf of banana bread, at least it's was a small loaf:) I also purchased what is called Butter Cheese, this cheese is to die for and some German Bologna   We then went to an Amish Variety Store and they have loads of stuff, from pots and pans, dishes, just a little bit of everything. I would have loved to have a lot of things there but had to hold off for right now.  We did get to see the Amish in the field taking corn stalks for silage.  It was really interesting because they were using 2 teams of mules and had to keep them right along side of each other.  Wish I had some pictures of this but couldn't sneak any in that they wouldn't have known that I was taking their picture.

Stitching wise I am working on an exchange piece so can't show it right now, last night Mr Frog visited and slowed the progress down:(

She is a beauty!! I have a soft spot for cocker spaniels. I grew up with them and have had 2 since. They are real lovers who want to touch/be with their "people" all the time! I would get another one any day of the week lol (although I have 3 dogs in my house now I often say the next may just be another cocker.
Good Luck and I look forward to lots of doggie pictures!!

What a cute new member of the family. I'm sure with time, she will get along with the kitties.

We have a small cheese store here that makes the butter cheese. It is so good, especially in mac & cheese.
