Happy Friday and welcome to the DOG gone Fun Blog Hop hosted by Haidee. In fact, if you've arrived from her blog then you're in the right place. If not, then head on over by clicking HERE so that you may enjoy all the creations that my blog hop sisters have created from the beginning.
Haidee organized this hop to bring awareness to the idea of rescuing dogs from bad situations and allowing them to bring love into our hearts and homes. I personally don't have a dog at this time, but I truly love them. While growing up, I have the pleasure of the company of a dog named Sam, a Doberman Pincher named Champ, a black Labadore Retriever, and a Rottweiler named Princess von Young. All of them touched my heart and life in some why.
Princess, was my dad's dog. When my dad died, my mother who was deathly afraid of her managed to gather the strength to go and sit on the back porch and talk to Princess. Princess had not eaten since dad died and mom was concerned about her. My mom told her, it's just me and you. From that day forward until Princess died, she took great care of guarding the house and providing mom with much needed company. I truly can't wait until I am in the position of getting another one.
My project today is a simple card. We have a daughter who battles autism. I've been researching the benefits of acquiring a service dog for her. When talking to my daughter, who struggled immensely to express herself verbally about a dog in general, she rattled off that her dog would be brown and her name would be CeeCee. I was amazed and excited. That was the fuel that I needed to dig deeper and try to locate an organization that would be willing to assist us in the quest to find a suitable dog for Danita. We still don't have a dog, but we will hopefully make a little girl's wish come true.
I made this card to give to Danita when are finally able to get a dog. I truly hope you enjoy it. The recipe is listed under the card.
