Our Sweet Muff Dog….



This is not a crafty related post!

When I started this blog back in 2008 I knew I wanted to use it as a place to journal my thoughts

along with a place to share my passion for scrapbooking and card making.

I feel it is a great resource in remembering your life and the life of your family!

Speaking of family ……On Friday, I finally got up the courage to put

my sweet Dachshund Muffy to sleep.  She was just one month shy of 15 years old.

Here are a few photos that will reflect why she was the best pet a family could have ever asked for!

Muffy 1

Tyler picked out her name, because when she slept she curled up just like a Muffin. 

Muffy 2

She loved the water and I feel she always thought she was more of a Great Dane then a Dachshund

by the size of sticks she would fetch from the water at the beach.

Muffy….. thanks for making our house a home!

    One of our neighbors has a dachshund named Gretchen. We get such a kick out of watching her. She’s always sniffing out the critters in the neighborhood; I swear, if she could climb a tree…she would. Those squirrels just drive her nuts!
