Eating a little crow....



I said I would never do it....made jokes about people who do it....now I am doing it! Yes, look at my little princess dog. She has a sweater. I used to think, why on earth would anyone put a dog in a sweater? That is why they have fur!
Well, Lucy actually has hair, not fur...but that is besides the point. We couldn't prolong getting her a haircut any longer as she could no longer see due to her long hair so she needed to be groomed. The poor little things shakes because she is cold at this time of year so.....I bought her a sweater.
Yes, laugh at me. As I age I am SLOWLY learning to never say the word "never".
I admit, she does look pretty cute too!

I just thought this was funny and wanted to share. You will notice that my blog will be pretty quiet till after Christmas. I am still doing crafting, but nothing that I can share till after CHA in January.

I am looking forward to things slowing down after this weekend as the kids are done school and their programs. I am also done all of our shopping...yeah! The week before Christmas has become very special to me as it is a time to reflect on the true reason for the season. The gift of baby Jesus.

I would like to THANK all of you who read my blog and wish you and your families a VERY MERRY CHRISTMAS.

We have sweater for our poodle. It was recommended as she would feel less anxious especially when boarded. Sweaters works well on raining days also.
We don't do bows or ribbons or dress her up. But a cozy sweater is comforting.

So enjoy and your pouch looks sharp.

Merry Christmas, Sherrie!

My mom has a Bison that refuses to wear her jacket - just stands there shivering, LOL! Your little sweetie looks very cute. ;)

doggie looks adorable. BTW booties aren't a bad idea because of the stuff we humans use, like rock salt for the ice, and fertilizers for the lawn and I understand doggies espeically like antifreeze.
When you start putting the pup in little pink dresses with lace all over it, that's when I worry.
Here in FL it's bizarre to see how many people take the dogs with them when they go shopping and lots of these people use baby carriages and strollers. Now that's when it starts getting bizarro.

Sherrie, you are not alone.
I used to say all the things about the "crazy" people who dress their dogs, do baby talk, the whole nine yards.
Once I got my two Italian Greyhounds (very small dogs) I became the worst of all!

Glad you joined the club!

Our Katie is a Havanese and she too has hair, not fur. She's due for grooming this week and I'm sure will want to wear her little red coat for a few days while its chilly. What breed is Lucy?

Oh, she does look cute! I once had a dog that needed a sweater, so I can relate. Just don't start dressing her up in evening wear or bling, lol!

Article Source:- Bale clamps are one more accessory for forklifts. They permit pallet-less bales to be lifted and transported to other areas. The round tip lift truck accessory could be used to squeeze out or release compressed materials to make them free flowing to suit your requirements. Bar arm clamps are yet another type of forklift attachment that could be effective in picking up and transporting cylindrical items to suitable spaces in your warehouse. Fork lift trucks are available in different varieties and load capacities. A typical forklift truck includes the truck frame, cab, overhead guard, counter weight and wheels. According to the purpose for which a truck is used more parts are added to make it compatible for the use. The most common fork lift truck is used to carry materials that weigh up to five tons. There are larger lift trucks that are used to carry heavier items that weigh up to 50 tons as well like the shipping containers. Some varieties of warehouse shelving have covers and lockable doors. Such shelving systems are used where you need a controlled environment. One common use of covered warehouse shelving is for delicate electronic equipment. Covered warehouse shelving also gives protection against accidental damage from falling items, animals and factory workers. Covered, lockable warehouse shelving is very useful when a higher degree of security is required for storing items which are dangerous or valuable.
