Mixed Bag

Finally managed to get a photo of Lilly wearing her very fab collar from Pret a pawte.

This was not an easy task so you will have to excuse the head in the bucket pic but it was the only time she would be still enough to get a decent shot without her fur covering the collar.  I have to say that she does look quite smashing and it is the only collar she has ever been happy enough to wear and keep on.  

On a much sadder note Little Mary Moo's Place Employee of the Month for January, Oscar the cat passed away very suddenly.  We all miss him very much.  I miss having him come and sew with me and steal my bobbins - he did love to wrangle more than the odd bobbin.  Silly how they become such a comforting part of daily life.  We got Oscar from the RSPCA as a kitten just over three years ago when life was a little bit tough and we all needed some fun and laughter and boy did he deliver.

I'm so very sorry about Oscar. Our furry little companions do bring so much joy into our lives and it's so sad when they leave us. I'm sure Oscar left you with many lovely memories to treasure.

On a happier note...Lilly looks great in her new collar! My dog Sophie is also sporting a Pret a Pawte collar. And guess what? It's exactly the same one! It seems both our pooches have fabulous taste :)

Yes the BrisStyle dogs do have good taste!

It's always so sad when you lose a much loved family pet. Cats and threads they seem to go together.

Oh, I am so sorry for you and your girls. We had an Oscar the cat too when I was growing up. My cat used to sit on my homework and swipe at my fingers when writing assignments on the computer.

Happy memories!

Oh that is so terrible. I would be devastated if my Alvin left me. However, it looks like Oscar has provided you with some great memories, he looks like a real cutie.
