Last Non-Crafty-Creative-Decorative-Design Post...

... at least in this series of non-crafty-creative-decorative-design posts.

Yes, I have gotten a bit distracted from crafting lately, but I think it's just that everyone needs a break from time to time. A break to recharge the batteries while just completely zoning out. In my defense though, I haven't been completely zoning out and the proof is that I can still account for all three of my children. But still, there have been moments. Perhaps it's the time of year, tired of winter and waiting and hoping for spring.

Whatever it is, I promise this shall be my last uncrafty post in this series. And this post is mainly dedicated to my mum who is dying to see Pippa since she's had her hair done.

I have a friend here who months ago swore up and down that we'd been taken for a ride and that in fact Pippa is not, nor will ever be, a true Scottie. Because she just didn't look like one. She looked rather like a black ball of fur. I insisted it was purely because she hadn't been properly groomed, but she still didn't believe me.

Well the proof, as they say, is in the pudding - or in this case, the haircut - and I'm all too eager to proove her Scottiness. Pippa, however, is slightly less willing as you can see by the photos. She tends to follow the camera and thus profile shots are very hard to come by. By the way, she is doubly difficult because truly she's not meant to be sitting on the sofa. And she knows it. But doesn't look bothered at all, does she?

Attempt 1:

Attempt 2:

Attempt 3 (somewhat more successful):

Attempt 4 (finally managed to pry her from her favourite perch, but photographing Scotties in the shawdows is very tricky!):

And just for fun, the ever popular puppy headlock as demonstrated by wee man:

Well of course she's a scottie! Even as a furball you'd be able to tell by the muzzle. She's adorable!

That may be the cutest dog (and kid!) I've ever seen. Definitely a Scottie!
