Shih Tzu's & Lhasa Apso's

Hello my friends,

What fabulous weather we are having in these here parts at the moment.  I am trying to keep up with the garden, but fighting a losing battle!

We had friends here last weekend and they were wonderful, spent the whole time helping hubby and I with so many chores.  We got the sit on lawnmower working and moved a load of garden ornaments from where they had been dumped seven months ago in one of our paddocks (they are incredibly heavy).  We removed a cupboard in what I call the utility room, to allow me to have my tumble drier in that room, there has been some severe muppetry going on in this house, as we removed the cupboard it got stuck and at first we thought it was the skirting board that was stopping it from coming out, but no, whoever installed the cupboard had actually cut a hole in the floor tile to accommodate the leg!!  These plastic legs are adjustable, they screw up or down to allow for uneven floor surfaces enabling the fitter to get a level cupboard.  WHO in their right mind would cut a hole in the floor tile?  So, a relatively small job has now turned into something more labour intensive.  Fortunately we discovered the offcuts of these tiles in one of our fields, so now hubby has got to try and patch them in.

On to my card.  This was made for my Stepsister who has a couple of Shih Tzu's, the more keen dog lovers may note that this isn't a Shih Tzu it is actually a Lhasa Apso, but to be fair it looks just like her male dog Chester and of course I coloured it to match his fur colouring, adding the little bone shaped 'tag' myself to match the one he has on his collar.
