Happy Tuesday, stampers! Today's card is simply the cutest and easiest thing. And right now I need simple in my life, because this just happened....
Meet Luke, a sweet pup someone dumped at the church nearby. (Expletive deleted) My neighbor found him and his two kitten companions and brought him home, but couldn't catch the kitties. Her dog hated him so she was going to take him to the shelter, but we said we'd love to give him a home, so here he is! The vet says he's about six months old, and a Great Pyrenees mix (which I suspected) so he's going to be a big guy - I'm guessing close to 100 pounds when fully grown. He is now up to date on shots and de-wormer, and will be neutered next month. He potties outside like a good boy, and is learning to come when called. Still LOTS of work ahead, but he is so sweet and loving, and craves affection so I think we will be okay.
Anyhooo, enough about our new addition, which our other dog loves and the cat merely tolerates. 😄 Here are the instructions.
