There is this funny 'lump' in me gut. I'm sure it's from the nerves I'm feeling about Paisley flying!
I'm sure she will be OK, it's not a long flight and before she knows it she will be in the arms of Denise and her new family.
I've got photos to share (again!):
ABOVE: all our puppies for one of the last times romping in the sunshine together.
ABOVE: a production line of mug rugs! I love making them.
ABOVE: our stunning little Keera with butterfly wings. This photo is a bit blurred due to her moving, but I think it looks gorgeous!
I'm off now to make a start on the day, and get Paisley ready for her big trip down the country.
DENISE: Make sure you have a pair of scissors or knife with you as you will need to cut the cable ties that the puppy's crate is secured with.
Air New Zealand insist that the door be secured with 4 cable ties!
I'm running around making sure I have everything of Paisley's. I think I've got everything!
Paisley is at the airport now, waiting for her flight. I didn't cry, but it was close! I am cross with myself though. I forgot to send her BLANKET!!!
In the last minute rush to get all the pups in the crate, I forgot to grab it.
So Denise, I shall post it this afternoon. Do I have your address? I might just go look for it!... AND DOUBLE check I put the right puppy in the crate! lol
I DID. Phew!
DOGSTARS: I am anxiously awaiting any sort of communication from Paisley's family! I don't have a cell phone number for them, just their land line one. As they probably aren't home yet, I shall just have to wait!
PAISLEY IS HOME! And perfectly happy by the sound of it. Denise said the plane was a little late, so she was a bit worried, as I was from this end. But, all is good. Apparently the resident cat is sitting on the bench looking at the new bundle of fluff who's invaded the house! So cute.
I can almost visualise the household... all fussing over darling Paisley! And so they should, she is gorgeous of course! We don't make ugly babies in this house. *smiles*
I am now so happy. Big *sigh* of relief she is home and happy.
Dinner. I've got lamb chops in the oven with onions, potatoes and lashings of Thick Mint Sauce. OMGosh dinner is going to be yum.
I put a loaf of bread on this morning... and it just finished... so I excitedly opened the lid...
ABOVE: there should be a loaf popping out the top... but instead... we have this! Dry ingredients... WHAT THE? Oops, I forgot to add the water didn't I!
Bex is now laughing her head off... cos I stuffed up too... it's not just her.
In my DEFENSE, I've stuffed up less times than her. pffffft!
So sorry Steve, but no lovely fresh bread for your lunch tomorrow.
I blame it on 'puppy brain'... I was rather distracted this morning...
End of Day: well it's been a funny old day. I already miss Paisley, she is such a little love.
Stinkin hot here in the house... doesn't help when I get a hot flush too. Got a nasty headache developing. Dante is cutting molars, so he's out of sorts too.
Time to hit the sack (bed).
