12 More Days Till Halloween!

Here is my skeleton!  He is enjoying his coffin. He was a little to big for the coffin so, I put him sitting up on a bed of velvet. I am working on some more finishes. More pictures will be coming tomorrow. I have some little bowl fillers, a tombstone, and a needle punch pumpkin man to show off.
I took my little one Rebel (15 years old) to the vet today.. She has not been able to hold her urine or other. I just knew it was time to say goodbye.. I had myself all worked up for it.. I started crying on the way.. I got myself together before I went inside.. She was looking sad at me. Doc Kelly checked out her bladder. He knew she has back problems.. thinks we may control bladder and other with meds.. He wanted to see her walk around.. She got down in the floor and started running around and jumping up on me.. lol  Like she was saying.. Hey!  wait a minute!  See Me!! I can still act like a puppy!!  Even though her back end was coming around like a jack-knifed 18 wheeler.... It was passing her front!!!  lol  Doc Kelly put her on 3 different meds.. they are not expensive.. He says she is just a spunky Senior Citizen. We will try this for a week if it helps.. She can take the meds.. If not... He mentioned Quality Of Life.. I am so relieved to take her back home with me.. I put her in the back seat of the tahoe.. Guess what she wanted.. Window down.. lol She had to ride up front with me to have the window all the way down!!  She was riding and smiling in the mirror all the way home.  She did have the dewclaw taken care of while we were there. It was infected and they took care of it and wrapped her little paw in a Bright greenish yellow bandage.. So, she kind of glows in the dark...lol  God gave me more time with her.. What started out as a sad day, ended with a car ride with the windows down, baby Rebel by my side and joy in my heart! My family will know when I say... I now have a headache and am so drained!  I think I may have to lay down to recuperate from this day.. I do not do stress well!..
Till tomorrow and more pictures... Maybe working on finishing will wind me down... I hope...

I'm glad there is hope for your fur baby. Your skeleton is fab. I'm working on this exact design. I hope I have brads small enough to fit.

Hugs

Your skeleton is so cute. :)
I was tearing up just reading about your sweet little dog. So very happy that the day turned out as it did! Our pets are such a special part of our lives. :)

Love you skeleton & coffin! I am so glad that your baby went home with you today :) Hallellujah! I hope that the meds work out. We have our fist dog now and he is 8 ~ I can't imagine how I will cope when that day arrives...

Can't wait to see your other finishes!
Blessings, Patti

You must be so happy that things have turned out the way they did. I can imagine just how stressful the ordeal was. I hope Rebel responds to the meds and continues to do well.
Your skeleton is awesome!!

I'm so glad that your dog was able to come back home with you. I'm hoping the meds help. Your skeleton and coffin are just divine.

Halloween hugs!

Ok...so I was just about to start bawling like a big baby and now I'm smiling so big just thinking of Rebel with her head out the window smiling all the way home! Yipeee!!!! She's just so darn cute! So happy you have more time with her.

So cute, the skeleton in his coffin!

I was sad when I started to read about your pup, and was so happy for you when I read the outcome!! May you enjoy the time you've been given.

Skeleton is just the cutest...love him! And I know what you're going through. We had to put our older dog to sleep 2 years ago, as she began having seizures. It's so hard. But like you said...there may be an answer at hand with the meds. Here's crossing my fingers for you and sending positive vibes your way!

I'm so happy Rebel is going to get taken care of with some meds, and will get to spend more time with you.

Your skeleton finish is awesome!

Patti said...

So glad you got to have a ray of sunshine in what started out to be a horrible day. My prayers are with you and your pretty girl Rebel.

Please scratch her behind the ears for me!

I saw your skeleton on Riverside Stitching's Blog List . . . whereever did you find it? I want to make a sampler for a sental student and include a skeleton on it and have not been able to find one until I saw yours.

PLEASE help me out. My blog is: http://confessionsofacrochetpatternslut.blogspot.com/ . . . just leave a comment on one of the posts with where I can find it.

When I get the sampler finished, I will post it. This skeleton will make my day when I get it.
