Why is it when you have money burning a hole in your pocket you really don't find something you can't live without? Today there was a first time outdoor antique/primitive show not far from home. I was sure I would find that something. Because of the weather, I am thinking some of the vendors did not show. There were a few lucky vendors under cover on concrete and a few indoors, but those in the grassy area had to contend with puddles of water from the monsoon we got overnight. We needed the rain, but it sure ruined many outdoor activities. It did clear up in the early afternoon, so hopefully more buyers showed up.
I did make a few small purchases. This little gal with alpaca hair is a Christmas gift.
Just what I don't need is more Halloween stuff. I have five big boxes/tubs sitting in the living room waiting to be unloaded. I still haven't grasped simplify :(
This wee nun has a few "issues" but she so reminded me of my Catholic school days. I'm not sure if I'll keep her or she'll move on to another Catholic friend.
She has the sweetest face. Her eyes open . . .
. . . and close. I don't remember the nuns wearing so much lipstick :)
Today was also the annual picnic of the Multiple Breed Rescue. That is the rescue that saved Ellie. Thankfully the weather had cleared. I had no idea how large that rescue is. There must have been 150 people there and nearly that many dogs. Ellen was one of the dogs pictured here. She in the middle row, third dog down.
Though a little blurry (sorry), you can see the cast on her leg. Before friend Judy adopted her, she had surgery for a luxating patella. I think the surgery was only partially successful because she sometimes will hop around on three legs and the vet said her kneecaps are pretty loose.
She was better behaved than I thought she would be around so many other dogs, but her "little dog syndrome" did kick in a few times, once when we were near a local "dog whisperer" who was giving training advice. He went and got what I call a "behavior modification collar", put it on her and it seemed rather effective, so of course I bought one. I think that was the whole idea . . . lol! It is a prong type collar, but the prongs are plastic rather than metal. I hope it will improve her behavior. She just wants to kill some other dogs, especially big ones. She has no clue that she weighs only 11 1/2 pounds!
Thanks so much for stopping by.
Pug hugs :)
