Morning all papercrafters

First of all a MASSIVE thank you to Steph for stepping in and helping out, we are going to do this thread bi weekly, me this week and Steph the following - shares the load and ideas. So thank you all for giving her lots of support.

It is now 4 weeks since I had my major surgery, all going well, so am slowly trying to get into routine again, and this is a big step towards that.

Right for the story:-

Hello - woof woof - my name is Whisky and I am a west highland terrier, white as snow !!! I live with my mum and dad and baby sister Emilia. I have lived with them since I was quite small as they rescued me -cant remember much but just remember I was very unhappy and unloved but not any more. I get lots and lots of cuddles especially from Emilia- she makes me happy especially when she tickles my tummy.

I can see that my lead is ready so we are going out for my morning walk very soon - I love them - I wonder what I will see today …

Whisky’s walk took him by the river where an angler was fishing, he’d just caught a particularly large trout so had left his packed lunch unattended when Whisky walked past, oops I wonder if he has any sandwiches left :smile:

Hiya all!

Ah lovely to see you Carol @cariadcrafts11 hope you keep going from strength to strength, you’ve been through an awful lot , thinking of you :green_heart: Great to see whiskey!! Great doing the stories, never done these for a while!

He couldn’t see sandwiches but here spotted some other tasty treats😋

Did he dare try and bite his way through the tubes to get the chocs???
Or he could just go for the yummy gingerbread man

Then suddenly he spotted a pussycat and that distracted him from the gingerbread. He always like to chase the cat but only for a bit of fun…

Glad to see you back again Carol @cariadcrafts11 Get well soon,

Whisky always enjoyed his walkies!

Luckily for the cat he was chasing Whisky spotted his friend Chico and stopped for a chat :smile_cat:

(Cariad Crafts) #9

then I spotted another dog, this one is always too friendly, I mean I have a regular doggie friend, Chico, and am definitely a one woman pooch! His owner is very nice tho and always tries to tempt me with a biccie but, of course, I will have none of it. This pooch is called Angus and is a Scottie. I am sure he will meet someone soon.

What’s that he thought, ah it’s on a reindeer

(Cariad Crafts) #11

Crikey a reindeer, I wonder if its Rudolph. I have seen Emilia doing secret writing, and now it makes sense, it must have been her letter to Santa. How exciting, I love all that wrapping paper its so much fun shredding it all and no one seems to mind that I am having such fun. Because everyone is laughing so much, we are all having fun.

A good old foggy start to the day, lets hope the sun manages to pop through soon :sunny:

…I was happily running through the leaves in the wood, loving the smell of the pine needles and how they crunched under my paws when I spotted something. Woah, not seen anything like that before. My mum and dog saw me and called me back quickly. No Whiskydog, you mustnt go sniffing there, that is very poisonous. It really frightened me so I stayed close for a while until I forgot all about it. Then I saw …
