Embrodery, Donations, and Shopping on Saturday

Well after much procrastination momma finally got her self off of Facebook and got into the sewing room and I got in my bed to watch her work.

She was designing a doggy bag to donate as a prize for the Barktoberfest at the Marshall County Humane Society. She flipped through her book of designs and finally found one she thought was perfect.

While the embroidery machine was doing its thing I helped momma pick out the designs for our Howl-o-ween bags.

Here is what the final draft of the front of my bag will look like. Please excuse my mommas poor drawing...She a sewer not an artist. BOL

Here is the finished Doggy Bag.

We filled it with goodies too. Whoever wins this at Barktoberfest will be one lucky pup!

Momma posted on Facebook one day about he Humane Society needing donations and Dr. Flanary was generous enough to donate 6 gift certificates!

Do we have the best vet or what?

After picking up the gift certificates from Dr. Flanary we headed out to the Humane Society to turn in all of our donations. Look at the sign they have out front!

We headed inside with our donations and the staff was super happy to get them. They told us that if we were ready we could preregister for the contests at the Barktoberfest. So now we are all ready to PAWTY!

Meeting room filled with lots of Barktoberfest items!

The new 2011 calendars

Then we came to the room with the puppy dogs in it and momma passed us off to grandma and went inside.

She saw tiny sweet doggies...

...and cute matching doggies.

Then she got to meet Layla and her litter of pups. She has been following their progress on FB ever since Layla was brought in heavily pregnant to the HS by some good Samaritans. Layla is a great dog and a great momma!

Then momma came across this little girl. She was just sitting in the back of her kennel very scared. Momma saw the "Not for Adoption" sign on her kennel door and asked one of the staff what her story was. This little girl is one of two Yorkies the HS took in from a Hording situation in TN. Both dogs were adopted quickly but this girls family backed out and that is when one of the staff knew it was ment to be for her to adopt her. She was going home today. Momma knew this little girl was special from the moment she laid eyes on her and if she hadn't already been adopted we would have had a new sister for sure. Her name is Cocoa.

Momma was back in the doggy kennels for like 836565819 hours and we worried she would never come out.

After we left the HS grandma was needing to pick up some crafty things to decorate her desk at work for Howl-o-ween so we stopped by Hobby Lobby.

You will never believe what we saw in the parking lot.

Thats right its a watermelon. Strange huh?!?!?

  1. OOOH!! How nice. I have that same frog toy! I justs loves it. I am sure another pup will love it too!!

    Chi Kisses,

  2. Procrastination - that's a BIG word! Shows how smart poodles are huh? (I know what it means, I'm part poodle remember)?

    Looks like you had a fun time... your mum is so kind to give donations, and you are right: whoever wins that will be very LUCKY!!! Lots of dogs up for adoption too, hopefully they'll find good homes. Maybe someone will adopt Layla and all of her puppies! I sure was upset when I left my mummy. :(( I MISS YOU MUMMY!!!

    Once again I must say, your pack is so nice!
    Cuddles and licks,

  4. Your momma does such nice work on those doggy bags!!! We especially like that she goes and visits the puppies! Our mama does that too. Sure hope they get to go to their furever homes soon!! We LOVE lookin' at your beautiful faces!!! xoxoxo Chloe and LadyBug

  5. I can't stand how cute you both are in pictures. What a busy and fun filled day you had!. Mommy love, love, loves the doggy you put on the bag you donated and wonders if you could make me a bag with that doggy and maybe something fallish on it, with my name? If so can you tell her how much to pay you and how to send it to you. Thanks

    licks and sniffs, Sasha

  6. OK, you scared me with that picture of Cocoa. I saw her picture and she looked so sad ... Mama and I were already putting our shoes on to go get her ... but then we read the rest of your post. So happy, she has a home.

    Your pal, Pip

  7. Hi Mollie Jo!
    You have an awesome mom too! My mom just loves to hear how people help out at their local shelters and your mom's bag is so adorable...the dog that wins that will be so lucky!


  8. Uh oh. Some human is going to be mad when they get home. My momma has left groceries behind sometimes too.

    You know, Peabody is difficult to demonstrate with true Bawston pronunciation using only written letters, but it would be something like "Pee buh dee" with the emphasis on PEE! Hehehe.


  9. Cocoa looks very sweet - wouldn't she have made a great new sis!!! Momma mad a beautiful bag for that donation. She is so very talented.

    We hope you took that wallymelon home - lots of tasty bites there.

  11. Wow what a day! That bag turned out great, and how wonderful of the vet to donate the certificates!

    And oh, poor sweet little Cocoa! We love that your mom would have adopted her if she needed a home, and we are so glad she has one. It sounds like she was in a very bad situation before and really could use a lot of love and a lot of help!

  12. BOL! Love the "wandering watermelon". Wonder if there is a watermelon warden?? I kill me....
    Anyways, it's great that you momma is using her creative powers for such a good cause. But we are wondering, doe they PAY you $30 to adopt the cat?? Just kindding... I'm just not much in of a kitteh lover - glad there are other people & doggies that are, though!
